Collingswood Community Theatre will brighten your winter with SPAMALOT! will help brighten them. Coming in February/March 2014, CCT Will stage the funny and irreverent musical SPAMALOT.
Lovingly based on the classic cinematic comic masterpiece “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” SPAMALOT retells the legendary story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Written by Monty Python’s Eric Idol and composer John Du Prez, the show features swipes at Vegas glitz, the conventional Broadway musical and contains the film’s off-the-cuff spirit. The show includes the song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” and “Diva’s Lament.” The New York Times says SPAMALOT is "resplendently silly…an eager celebration of insanity.” SPAMALOT was a Tony Award Winner for Best Musical.
Performances are February 21, 22, 28 and March 1 at 7:30 p.m. with matinees on Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, March 2 at 2 p.m. All performances will be held in the Scottish Rite Auditorium (315 White Horse Pike, Collingswood). Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. All seating is general admission.
We also offer a special rate of $12 per person for groups of 10 or more. Groups must be reserved, paid and picked up or mailed out in advance. No group tickets will be issued at the ticket table. For group reservations, call Terry at 856-854-0720 x128.
Community Theatre News:
As with any Community organization, we’re always doing some fundraising. Our TEN * LOUSY * BUCKS program has been so successful, we thought we’d try it one more time. Yep, we're asking you again for your help to keep Collingswood Community Theatre productions coming to you.
You’ll be listed on the CCT web site and in the program and considered a friend and VIP. We might even let you sing a song. If you send more than TEN * LOUSY * BUCKS, you’ll get your name in even bigger print in our program and website. So, if you could see your way clear to sending just TEN * LOUSY * BUCKS (or, we wouldn’t mind if you covered for someone else that won’t respond to this message) we would greatly appreciate it.
Why not make a quick and easy donation of just TEN * LOUSY * BUCKS? It’s simple. You can donate using a check or cash or you can donate online. You can pay with credit card or PayPal. We’re 501(c)(3), so you can write the donation off as tax deductible. Contributions can be mailed to Collingswood Community Theatre c/o Terry Seeley, 678 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, NJ 08108 or can be dropped off at Collingswood Borough Hall or at the ticket table during performances. Online donations can be made by following the link on our web site – www.CCTArts.net.
And, in case you haven’t heard, we’ve put together a CCT cookbook – “Scene Stealing Recipes from the Collingswood Community Theatre – 149 recipes that will get you a standing ovation!” The cookbook contains favorite recipes from CCT members as well as recipes from several of our wonderful Collingswood restaurants and eateries. Cookbooks are available at Collingswood Borough Hall and will be available at all performances. Cookbooks are $10 each and proceeds help fund future performances. You can also order online – www.CCTArts.net/id51.html - or follow the link on the home page that says “CCT Cookbook.”

The Department of Public Works is asking residents to help with leaf pickup that has been delayed by the recent precipitation and cold temperatures. Public Works is still collecting leaves; however, leaves on many streets are frozen and stuck to the ground with snow on top of them. DPW is asking residents to help by loosening up their leaves and putting them on the curb strip if possible for easier collection by the leaf machine.
With questions call Public Works at 856-858-0533. Thank you.
This entertaining event is open to an audience that can sit and listen to all or as much of the story as they would like. The reading will take about four to five hours. Cookies and punch will be served and there will be a place to donate canned goods to a local food bank. Dig This will offer discounts on purchases to readers and anyone that brings a donation.
Readers needed - no experience required to participate. Contact Kenneth at email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering as part of this special holiday get-together.
