2017-2018 Season Shows

Our 2017-2018 season has begun! Directors Sam and Larry DeLaney presented Treachery at Cartilage Creek or Our Hero Has a Bone to Pick, a melodrama by Tim Kelly, July 20-23.  We are excited to welcome Kansas City’s StoneLion Puppet Theatre (stonelionpuppets.org) for an all-ages production of the classic The Wind in the Willows on Saturday, September 16, at 2 pm. CCPA teams up with the Bushwhacker Museum for a History Tour of Deepwood Cemetery in October. Our holidays will be full at year end with Christmas Belles, by Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten, and Jessie Jones and directed by Richard Daut, and “A Christmas to Remember” with the Community Choir directed by Wes Morton.  In spring 2018, we present The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza, by Don Zolidis and directed by Margaret Haverstic, and a TBA comedy directed by Linda Davidson. Five-event season tickets are available; secure a seat for the plays and choir concert performances at a discount! NOTE THIS DISCOUNT: You may use multiple event punches to bring guests to a single event. An order form is linked to the Donation Card below.

Our goal is always to promote the performing arts in our community. Thanks to your long-term support, we will pay off the Fox Playhouse mortgage at the end of this year. But the costs of maintaining our home continue, and we provide a season of community entertainment with multiple events each year. We see upcoming needs for lighting and sound, new concession equipment, drywall and paint for the playhouse walls and paint for the stage. Your donation is a crucial part of our fund drive goal of $10,000 to keep the historic Fox Playhouse (and the fun that occurs within) a jewel in our community. We would also love for you to volunteer with us. If you would like to help in way (build sets, distribute flyers, you name it), please mark the box on the Donation Card, and a CCPA board member will be in touch to help you.

Please print and complete the Donation Card and mail your donation to CCPA, P.O. Box 754, Nevada, MO 64772. You can also donate online below with our secure PayPal link using your credit card. Your gift will be acknowledged in our program books throughout the season and on our website because you are an important part of keeping the performing arts alive in Nevada and the surrounding community. All gifts are tax-deductible.
