Theater Program - Cerre Players

CBC's elite Theater Program deliver five shows each school year in the state-of-the-art Gundaker Theater.

Our shows are student produced, which means there are opportunities to participate on stage and behind the scenes. Our students have an active role in building all of the sets in our theatre workshop and during our Theater Design class and they also work with our directors to set and operate all the lighting and sound.

Thanks to talented students, unparalleled leadership and premier facilities, CBC continues to be credited as one of the top drama and performance programs in the state of Missouri!

Not about Nightingales by Tennessee Williams

NOT ABOUT NIGHTINGALES by Tennessee Williams

An early work by the revered playwright Tennessee Williams.  A raw, sprawling dramatization of real events at a Philadelphia area prison in 1938.  Eva, a woman looking for work during the Great Depression, takes on a secretarial job at a prison. During her tenure, she bears witness to the staff's harsh treatment of inmates, and watches as a number of prisoners try to overthrow their overseer and escape their conditions. Williams presents a rough, complex portrait of Depression-era imprisonment.
