Canton Community Theatre is giving the people of Canton their "Just Desserts" this weekend and next. Their most recent production was written in part by longtime CCT members Kathy Fox Alfano and Renee Hanscom, with contributions from other cast members.
This production takes place on the set of a reality TV baking show named "Baby Cakes and Sweet Pies." The scene is the final episode where three bakers are competing for the grand prize. Things apparently get out of hand and laughter, mystery and cake ensue.
The audience will not only get to vote for the winner but they will also get to taste all the delicious baker creations.
Canton Community Theatre started out as a group of people coming together to start an adult theater after working together on a school play and it has developed into a Canton institution.
Their first show was You're a Good Man Charlie Brown in 2002 - which is interesting because I always thought it was Music Man, which was also performed in 2002. From there they have gone on to perform such classics as The Wizard of Oz, Oklahoma!, Beauty and the Beast, Sound of Music, Willy Wonka and more.
A purely volunteer group, they have come together to perform to support community groups and programs, donating much of their time and talent. It is a true "community" theater.
Canton Community Theatre's production of "Just Desserts" can be seen at the Canton Community Theatre location at the Village Shoppes, located right next door to The Shoe Dept. Performances are February 8, 9, 15 & 16 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15.00 and the price includes cake tastings! Advance purchase is strongly recommended as there is limited seating. Tickets can be purchased online at the Canton Community Theatre website.
It sounds like it is going to be a delicious performance!
