The mission of the Carroll County Community Theatre is to involve the local community in the experience of live theater. Its aim is to enable members of the community of every age, sex, and background to learn about and participate in every aspect of theater, including play selection, acting, lighting, costume making, publicity, and set construction. It also offers the public an opportunity to enjoy quality productions of both well-known and less frequently seen plays.
Our philosophy behind play selection and casting is to reach and involve people of diverse backgrounds, both university and community people, those with theater training and without, and young people and families as well as adults of all ages. As a community theater the organization expects everyone involved to participate in many aspects of production, both on and off stage. As non-professional theater it recognizes the diverse commitments of its participants and seeks to structure rehearsals, production work, and performances accordingly. The organization is a community theater group which takes the word “community” seriously.

“The Miracle Worker,” directed by Cindi Winstead, opened the 43rd season of the Carroll County Community Theatre. The show follows the story of Helen Keller and er governess Annie Sullivan. Helen was born blind and deaf. Because of this, she is a wild, unmanageable child. Annie Sullivan is hired to care for her. Despite all expectations, Annie teaches Helen to speak and read braille. Performance dates were September 16-18.
”The Miracle Worker” was followed by “A Christmas Story.” “A Christmas Story is the beloved classic story of Ralphie Cooperss dogged pursuit of a “Red Ryder” bb gun for Christmas, even though every adult he asks tells him “But Ralphie, you’ll shoot your eye out.” Auditions for “A Christmas Story” will be held on September 19 and 20 at 6:30 in the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center. Performance dates are December 1-4.
The final show this season was “Steel Magnolias.” “Steel Magnolias” revolves around a group of women who have their hair done in Truvy Jones beauty shop. The women confront life’s challenges, some funny and some not, during their time in the beauty shop. Auditions for “Steel Magnolias” were held on December 12 and 13 at 6:30 in the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center. Performance dates were over two weekends: March 10-12, and March 17-19.
According to the Carroll County Community Theatre President, John Stephens, “We usually include a musical in our season but, this season, the University of West Georgia Theatre Program has asked us to collaborate with them on a production of “Cinderella,” to be presented at the Carrolton Arts Center in late March. The Board did not think that we could handle two musicals back-to-back so we decided to present “Steel Magnolias”

Carroll County Community Theatre 2023-2024 Season
Harking back to the original concept of Frankenstein, this version amplifies the film's suspenseful horror and adds greater depth of character and motivation as well as a new and different love story. All of the eagerly anticipated elements are here: the stone walled laboratory, the crazed scientist, angry villagers, a swooning heroine, a fearful storm and the hideous yet pathetic, deadly creature with its confused mind and powerful, undisciplined body. The final confrontation between the doctor and the creature produces a startling surprise.
Auditions: July 17 & 18, 2023 6:30 to 8:30
Performances: September 14-17, 2023
The Last Night Of Ballyhoo
The play is set in the upper class German-Jewish community living in Atlanta, Georgia in December 1939. Hitler has recently conquered Poland, Gone with the Wind is about to premiere, and Adolph Freitag (owner of the Dixie Bedding Company), his sister Boo, and sister-in-law Reba, along with nieces Lala and Sunny – a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor – are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ballsponsored by their restrictive country club. Adolph's employee Joe Farkas is an attractive eligible bachelor and an Eastern European Jew, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence within his own religious community. His presence prompts college student Sunny to examine intra-ethnic bias, her Jewish identity (or lack thereof), and the beliefs with which she has been raised.
Written by Alfred Uhrey, the Atlanta playwright who also wrote Driving Miss Daisy.
Auditions: September 18 & 19, 2023 6:30 to 8:30
Performances: December1-3, 2023

When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.
