Carroll County Community Theatre
The Carroll County Community Theater presented its first production, “You Can’t Take It With You” in
March of 1979. That production took place in the cafetorium at Carrollton High School. CCCT has just
completed its 130 th production, “Miracle Worker” in the Danny N. Mabry Theater at the
Cultural Arts Center.
From its initial home on the third floor of the Old City Hall, CCCT moved to the Bonner Building at the
Old Carrollton Junior High School, and then to its current home at the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center.
During its vagabond years, CCCT performed at a number of venues. They included the Carrollton High
School cafetorium, the old Carrollton High School Auditorium (converted from the old gym building), the
auditorium in the Old Carrollton Junior High School, the Carroll County Courthouse, The Townsend
Center at UWG, a revival tent, and even after the move to the Cultural Arts center, a show at the AMP.
CCCT has mostly relied on local volunteer talent. Traditionally, only the Director and Music Director
received a modest stipend. There also came a time when it became necessary to pay musicians in order
to complete the ensemble required for the musicals.
The productions over the years have been varied. From comedies like “Star Spangled Girl” and “Arsenic
and Old Lace” to dramas like “Death of a Salesman”, “Diary of Anne Frank”, and The Crucible to musicals
like “The King and I”, “My Fair Lady” and “Mary Poppins”.
