The spectacular musical adaptation of Fellini's 8½ features one man and the dozens of women in his life. Celebrated but impetuous film director Guido Contini, succumbing to the pressures of filming his latest film epic, suffers a midlife crisis. One by one, women from his past and present – including his mother, his wife, his mistress, and his leading lady – haunt, instruct, scold, seduce and encourage him until he finally learns to grow up.

CONSTELLATIONS by Nick Payne is a view of the many possibilities that exist within a life, seen through the lives of Marianne, a physicist, and Roland, a beekeeper. Follow their tragic love story as we see the influence of choices, big and small, on their parallel universes. “Constellations” is a play for anyone who has ever wondered “what if?”



Registration is Open




Calling all 7- to 10-year-olds who love performing! Come and be part of The Chatham Community Players Theater Creations.

Program runs Monday through Friday, 9 am to 11:30 am ~ August 12 thru August 23.

Young actors will learn the fundamentals of acting onstage while using their imaginations and artistic creativity to develop their very own play! Through various games and exercises, kids will also learn about different theatrical elements and how they are used to shape a performance.

An original script will be created using the kids' chosen storyline and characters. This work will be rehearsed and ultimately presented on the Chatham Playhouse stage in a full performance with no scripts in hand for family and friends.
