CTC will create a variety of theatrical experiences to a culturally, generational and socially diverse audience.
CTC strives to provide a vehicle in which the participant can experience all aspects of the theater, from the exhilaration of attending a live performance for the first time to the enjoyment of revisiting a classic, from fostering the talents of first time performers to enriching the theatrical experience through the participation of veteran actors, from educating groups through the theater experience to building talents that individuals can make use of throughout their lives.
CTC uses the performing arts to inspire, educate and entertain audiences of all ages and to forge relationships with educational institutions.
In addition to providing the community with theater that enriches lives, CTC researches, develops and fosters new performing art works that celebrate the human experience and help the community recognize its commonalities.
It is the vision of Chico Theater Company (CTC) to build a performing arts center. The performing arts center will include a state-of-the-art theater complex in addition to dance, vocal and music departments.
CTC seeks to be a regionally and nationally recognized theater company of the highest artistic merit committed to programs that enrich people’s lives and perform a service to the Northern California area. Eventually CTC plans to build a new performing arts center. We will utilize local talent in all areas of this endeavor, thus being acknowledged as a positive provider of economic growth to Chico. The new performing arts center will allow CTC to offer progressive and comprehensive performing arts educational programs that will serve to enhance the lives of those individuals who participate in the process of artistic performance as well as enrich the community by fulfilling the important need to provide access to performing arts.
Chico Theater Company opened on October 1st, 2003 with the musical “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”. We are a family oriented theater that primarily performs musicals.
