CCT was founded on September 17, 1955. For more than 50 years, the organization has presented many great musicals for community children, including Annie, The Nutcracker, Beauty and the Beast, The Sound of Music, Aladdin, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Fiddler on the Roof, Oliver!, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, The Music Man, and many others.

In addition, CCT has sponsored many professional troupes from around the country over the years, including dance companies, story-tellers, puppet shows, magicians, and mimes for the entertainment of children of all ages. It's summer theatre arts training program, "Imagination Camp" has helped numerous children and young adults learn the ins and outs of dramatic performance and putting on a musical production.

CCT is dedicated to the development and fostering of an interest in dramatic arts among people of all ages, but especially children and young adults. We seek the creative expression of those arts and the encouragement and appreciation of community participation in all of the theatre's activities.

CCT has, since 2006, become home to many creative outlets and subsidiary groups including: CCT's Spring Musical, CCT's Imagination Camp, CCT's Holiday Show, CCT's Penguin Project/Penguin Players and CCT's Stage Right Theatre.

The CCT Board of Directors encourages all directors to cast as many individuals as possible in each production. However, our organization has grown so much since our reorganization in 2005, that it is not always possible to give everyone a role. We encourage all children to participate in our summer "Imagination Camp" theatre education program.
