From the Director...
Welcome to our 24 "Karat Gold" Season!
It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank each and every person who has supported our historic theatre throughout the years and also to the new members of our CVP family. The hopes and dreams of our Playhouse Team could never have been achieved without each and every gift, whether it be time, talent or financial contributions. The summer renovation project was a true “team in action” project. A very special thank you to the City of Cocoa Council Members, Administrative and Staff. From my heart, I thank our Board of Directors who believe in our mission and support it in every way they possible can. To our team of designers and dedicated workers, I will be forever grateful for all you have given. The auditorium is truly now “World Class” in it’s interior design. Our orchestra pit is finally large enough for our musicians to perform in comfort. The auditorium seats are custom designed and built just for our audience viewers to enjoy.
If you think that you might enjoy performing, please join us for auditions. Each show requires many different performers.
Another exciting returning experience is our “Live-In Theatre: The Ryan Case”, written and directed by Drama Desk Award nominee Carlo D’Amore, “The Ryan Case” is a historic case of unsolved murder on the streets of New York, that has found its way to Cocoa Village. This is a murder mystery “whodunit” walking tour in Historic Cocoa Village featuring our live performers.
We will be presenting another Summer Musical Theatre Project next summer, 2014, in partnership with the King Center for the Performing Arts. More information will be announced in January.
From my heart,
Dr. Anastacia Hawkins-Smith
