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.
