Countryside Community Theatre presents Les Miserables“You know, it’s been interesting,” says Christina Myatt, president of the board of directors for the Eldridge-based Countryside Community Theatre (CCT). “Because we wanted to do something big for our 30th anniversary, and this is definitely something big. But when people hear what we’re actually doing, they either say, ‘That’s really great!’ or they say, ‘You people are insane.’”

Jesus Christ Superstar in rehearsalOdd as it may seem now, there actually was a period in the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s history – a run of 12 shows, to be precise – in which the company didn’t produce any musicals whatsoever. Yet after staging a dozen plays between June 2008 and May 2009, co-founders Tristan Tapscott and Chris Walljasper chose to open the theatre’s second season with a production of Jonathan Larson’s rock musical tick ... tick ...

And three, it’s short, running one hour without an intermission. However, there’s one major element missing from the Showboat’s show that would make it really good: melodrama.
