Past Seasons

In our 2016-2017 season, CTC was honored to receive the American Theatre Wing’s prestigious National Theatre Company Grant Award while bringing to the stage Chekhov’s The Bear & The Proposal, August Strindberg’s The Ghost Sonata, and the local premiere of Beaumarchais’ The Barber of Seville.








Our productions in our eighth season saw us return to Henrik Ibsen with A Doll’s House, and the Greeks with The Birds. Plus, we were thrilled to offer Shakespeare’s Henry V on the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.








In our first season at our home in Chelsea Market CTC produced our brand new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic A Christmas Carol. This was followed up with a Houston premiere of The Speckled Band: An Adventure of Sherlock Holmes written by Arthur Conan Doyle himself, and lastly we produced the Houston premiere of Anton Chekhov’s dark comedy The Cherry Orchard.





















In a season of English masterpieces, CTC offered Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a Houston premiere of Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, and Oscar Wilde’s eternal The Importance of Being Earnest.





















CTC kicked off our fifth season by rounding out the great early modern dramatists by presenting August Strindberg’s Miss Julie. This was followed by a Houston professional premiere of Alfred Jarry’s absurdist play Ubu Roi, and lastly a re-envisioning of our inaugural production of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice.





















CTC presented three productions in our fourth season including a return to French farce with Marivaux’s The Triumph of Love, a foray into one of the fathers of modern drama: Anton Chekhov with his play Uncle Vanya, and William Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest.





















In our 2010-2011 season, we presented our take on Ibsen, Shaw and Shakespeare and a Reading Series that included Christmas Stories by Charles Dickens and The Doctor of Love by Moliere.
