Who is CCTC?

CCTC is a theatre company of passionate and seasoned artists dedicated to serving the needs of a popular audience by telling essential stories about the collective Human experience…a company dedicated to illuminating classic stories in a clear, uncluttered and visceral manner.

Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company (CCTC), so named because we wish to serve the common good, is a professional 501(c)(3) nonprofit theatre organization incorporated in Pennsylvania in 2005.  CCTC is dedicated to the principle that theatre is a vital component of a civil society. Our mission is to present theatrical works with universal themes that bear witness to the rich variety and commonality of human experience, and to enhance the appreciation of theatre as a humanizing art form. 

While the heart of CCTC will be classic plays, we will also look to produce contemporary and new works that emphasize the power of language, delivering characters and stories that lead our audience on a compelling journey into the now of the play. Our goal is to create a theatrical experience that encourages our audience to celebrate individuality while recognizing and understanding the universality of the human condition. Most importantly, we wish to entertain, to engage and to inspire through the theatrical experience.
