I'm Looking For...





Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage and features all of your favorites from marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes. Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. This is a family-friendly show.  The matinee on Saturday will feature lobby games for young kids.
$15 General Admission | $12 w/CVHS ASB | $10 Children (13 and under) | Matinee Price:  $10 for all

Cougars Crush Cancer

The Cougars Crush Cancer campaign is happening now. We collect charitable donations to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).  We humbly ask you to consider making a donation to both help cancer patients, and to find a cure for blood cancers.  “Unfortunately this cause is too close to my heart:  I lost my younger sister Suzanne to leukemia 6 years ago February.  I certainly hope you will never experience the tragic loss these cancers can bring.” -Sra. Sayles    No donation is too small and everything is helpful.  Please make checks payable to LLS (your cancelled check is your receipt for tax purposes) or click here.
