Youth Theatre Presents “A Year with Frog & Toad” March 23-31

The beloved characters of children’s author Arnold Lobel hop from page to stage in “A Year with Frog and Toad,” a story of adventure and friendship coming to the Chattanooga Theatre Centre stage March 23-31, 2018.

A whimsical musical written by brothers Robert (music) and Willie Reale (book and lyrics), based on the “Frog and Toad” children’s stories written and illustrated by Lobel, the Theatre for Young Audiences production follows the woodland adventures of two amphibious friends, a curmudgeonly toad and a cheerful frog, with their colorful hopping, crawling and flying companions, over the course of a year.

Following its premiere on Broadway in 2003, “A Year with Frog and Toad” was nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The upbeat score entertains with plenty of wit, making it an inventive, exuberant and enchanting musical for the whole family.

The production follows Frog and Toad through four colorful seasons, from hibernation to hibernation. Frog and Toad, along with their quirky friends Snail, Turtle, the Birds and more, go through many adventures, from rushing down a hill in a runaway sled in the winter to taking a picnic in the summer, learning life lessons along the way. The best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique. The adaptation is structured as joyful vignettes, which feature catchy tunes (such as Snail’s “I’m Coming Out of My Shell”), funny dialogue and bright, memorable characters.

Two casts of young actors will perform on alternating days. The theatre typically selects two casts of young volunteers who perform on alternate days of the run, giving more young people the opportunity to take part in Youth Theatre productions.

The “Summer Cast” includes Taryn Bracher (Snail), Benjamin Brown (Frog), Mason Carter (Toad), Landry Howard (Bird/Mother Frog), Aleah Larson (Turtle/Mole/Squirrel), Hannah Lowe (Lizard/Mole/Squirrel), Annabelle Major (Bird/Young Frog), Avery Sharpe (Mouse/Terrible Frog) and Augusta Westhoff (Bird/Father Frog). Sophia DeCredico is the stage manager, and Addison Carter is the assistant stage manager.

The “Winter Cast” includes Tyler Bacon (Frog), Darrius Calloway (Toad), Erin Eames (Lizard/Mole/Squirrel), Alex Loyd (Bird/Young Frog), Acadia Phillips (Mouse/Terrible Frog), Genna Raborn (Bird/Father Frog), Autumn Schulmeister (Turtle/Mole/Squirrel), Emma Tuttle (Bird/Mother Frog) and Rachel Young (Snail). Carina Miller is the stage manager.

The production is directed by Chuck Tuttle, the theatre’s Director of Education and Outreach. Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Huseman is the music director.

School performances are scheduled March 26-29. Public performances are set for Friday, March 23, 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 24, 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Sunday, March 25, 2:30, p.m.; Friday, March 30, 7 p.m.; and Saturday, March 31, at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Morris has directed and appeared in several Theatre Centre productions.

N. Eric Knauss, the Theatre Centre’s new Technical Director, has spent most of the last 25 years working full-time in professional theatre in the Washington, DC, area. He started at The Studio Theatre in 1992, moved to the Round House Theatre in 1999, then to the Olney Theatre in 2009. After leaving the Olney in 2012, he spent three years working in the theatre department at George Washington University. Altogether, he has been a part of building more than 175 productions.

Youth Theatre Production of “The House at Pooh Corner” Opens Feb. 16


Faithful friends like Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, and a lovable bear called Winnie-the-Pooh can be counted on to warm Christopher Robin’s heart – and the audience’s too – as the Theatre Centre brings to the stage “The House at Pooh Corner,” a charming production faithfully based on the A. A. Milne classic of the same name. Adapted for the stage by Bettye Knapp, the Youth Theatre production opens Friday, Feb. 16, and continues through Feb. 25.


Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends have endured as the unforgettable creations of Milne, who wrote the stories for his son, Christopher Robin. As this tale from Milne’s second collection of stories opens, the character of young Christopher Robin has called a “mergency” meeting. He has decided to run away with his friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, and the gang. Probably they’ll go to the North Pole or to the South Pole.


Why? There is a dark, mysterious threat that Christopher Robin is to be sent away to “Education.” Nobody knows exactly what or where that is, and if he’s sent to such a distant place, what can his friends possibly do without him? So it’s generally agreed that they’ll run away. As the situation becomes clearer, Christopher Robin isn’t quite so sure that running away is the answer.


Guest director James Ogden, who delighted audiences as the title character in last summer’s “Peter and the Starcatcher,” makes his CTC directing debut with “The House at Pooh Corner.” Two casts of young actors will perform on alternating days. The theatre typically selects two casts of young actors who perform on alternate days of the run, giving more young people the opportunity to take part in Youth Theatre productions.


The “Heffalump Cast” includes Bree Brantley (Early Rabbit), Aiden DiChiacchio (Christopher Robin), Annabelle Hill (Rabbit), Lyric Houston (Winnie-the-Pooh), Kristin Lowery (Owl), Ian Parten (Tigger), Sarah Rad (Piglet), Natalie Shelburne (Late Rabbit), Sydney Terfloth (Kanga), Emma Wesolowski (Eeyore), and Juliana Williams (Roo).


The “Woozle Cast” includes Johnathan Ross Adams (Christopher Robin), Ella Kate Antanaitis (Late Rabbit), Savvy Betro-Gross (Tigger), Hannah Carter (Kanga), Charlie Clevenger (Roo), Rachel Lowe (Piglet), Irie Olsson (Rabbit), Maya Scribner (Owl), Madeline Warren (Winnie-the-Pooh), Kynnedy Watson (Early Rabbit), and Cora Grace Williams (Eeyore).


Will Tutor and Olivia Kelly are the student stage managers.


School performances of the Theatre Centre production are scheduled Feb. 20-23. Public performances are set for Friday, February 16, 7 p.m.; Saturday, February 17, at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Sunday, February 18, at 2:30, p.m.; Friday, February 23, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, February 24, at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, February 25, at 2:30 p.m.

Theatre Centre Becomes New Home of Chattanooga Film Festival


We have a new partner, the Chattanooga Film Festival! Read all about it here and below.

Chattanooga, Tenn. (February 6, 2018) – The Chattanooga Film Festival (CFF) is proud to announce opening night films ROCK STEADY ROW and SUMMER OF ’84, as well as its partnership with the Chattanooga Theatre Center (CTC) which will serve as hub of its 5th annual weekend of films, panels and workshops. This year’s CFF, slated for April 5 – 8, will also screen the world premiere of the highly anticipated documentary LIFE AFTER FLASH.

Put Mad Max, John Wick, The Warriors and even a bit of Animal House into a blender and then add BMX bikes and what you get probably still won’t be as much fun as ROCK STEADY ROW. Rad, funny, and a kinetically paced blast, this film perfectly sets the tone for CFF 2018. Director Trevor Stevens will be on hand to help kick things off.

If you fell in love at first watch with RKSS Films’ TURBO KID than you’ll get a sense of why CFF is so excited to share their follow up, SUMMER OF ’84. Centering around a group of young friends that spend their summer on a quest to prove that their neighbor is a serial killer, this film is for fans of everything from STRANGER THINGS to THE GOONIES, offering a lot to love with style and a bit more darkness than you might expect. Lucky for the CFF audience, RKSS Films, made up of François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell will be present to answer any burning questions.

CFF is honored to hold the world premiere screening of LIFE AFTER FLASH, an inspiring and moving feature documentary that celebrates what makes that Mike Hodges enduring classic FLASH GORDON so iconic with audiences to this day. This film takes a looks at the real man behind the heroic mask, Sam J. Jones, including his successes, his battles, and his ultimate struggle for redemption. Director Lisa Downs, along with star Sam J. Jones and producer Ashely Pugh, will be in attendance for this once in a lifetime screening.

“The Chattanooga Film Festival has quickly grown over the last four years,” says festival executive director Chris Dortch. “Last year was our biggest, and for our fifth anniversary we weren’t going to settle for anything less than our best, most insane year yet.”

Adding to the excitement of the opening night films and LIFE AFTER FLASH is CFF’s new partnership with the Chattanooga Theatre Centre. The 44,000 square foot premises that makes it fit for multiple events, the beautiful river view, and the organization’s role as a pioneer in the Chattanooga arts scene made it the perfect home for the festival’s fifth year. Dortch says, “Not only will CFF be holding the event in a place that feels like Chattanooga through and through, but we’ll also have the opportunity to creatively fill the entire building with film, education and movie related mischief.”

CTC executive director Todd Olson carries the same enthusiasm, elaborating, “The Chattanooga Theatre Centre becoming the new home of the Chattanooga Film Festival represents a win-win for all, especially the arts going community. Arts groups should hold hands for a greater good, and CTC is committed and ready to embrace such partnerships wherever we can find them.”

“For almost 100 years the Chattanooga Theatre Centre has provided programming that enriched the cultural, intellectual, and emotional development of all people in the greater Chattanooga area by providing high-quality theatrical experiences and creating opportunities for the community to engage in them. We are very excited to have the opportunity to welcome the Chattanooga Film Festival to the CTC.” adds CTC’s group sales and events manager Ric Morris.

Badges for CFF’s full weekend are now on sale at Individual tickets to films, workshops and events will be available closer to April. Volunteer sign up can also be found on the website. Corporate badge packages are available for purchase. For more information on these packages, please email Chris Dortch, Sr. at [email protected]

LIFE AFTER FLASH | Director Lisa Downs


LIFE AFTER FLASH explores the life of Sam J Jones since his iconic performance as ‘Flash Gordon’ in the 1980 classic of the same name, and the aftermath of the young stars’ clash with one of Hollywood’s biggest legends, producer Dino De Laurentiis. 

Q&A with star Sam J. Jones, Lisa Downs, and producer Ashley Pugh


The Chattanooga Film Festival loves everything about cinema: the films, filmmakers and audiences; the critics, collectors and curators; and most especially the popcorn. The first ever Chattanooga Film Festival was held in 2014, and has been quickly making a name for itself among film-lovers, filmmakers and the film industry. The festival’s record-breaking fourth year drew more than 12,000 people to its films, workshops and special events.

We share films and events that are unique, challenging, critically significant and a helluva lot of fun. Our ultimate goal is to remember, discover and cultivate cinema worthy of everyone’s love and respect. As always, CFF is proudly continuing its mission to “Respect Cinema,” in hopes of increasing film exhibition, education and production in the state of Tennessee.

Disney’s “Newsies” Kicks Off Theatre Centre’s 2018-2019 Season

A Tony Award-winning Disney musical telling the buoyant tale of teen-aged newsboys at the turn of the century will open the season in September and a man-eating plant in a sci-fi smash hit musical will close it in July 2019, as the Chattanooga Theatre Centre announced its 2018-2019 season at a CTC volunteer event Monday night.

Musical crowd-pleasers will be complemented with stirring dramas, cutting-edge works, and charming youth productions as the community theatre, founded in 1923, enters its 95th season.

Here’s a look at the season:

Disney’s “Newsies” (September/October 2018): Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards for best score and best choreography, Disney’s “Newsies” is a high-energy explosion of song and dance. Set in New York at the turn of the century, it is the rousing tale of Jack, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teen-aged “newsies,” who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, the David-versus-Goliath struggle begins, and Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.

“The Last Five Years” (October/November 2018): Jason Robert Brown’s emotionally powerful and intimate musical tells the story of two 20-somethings who fall in love—and out of it again—over the course of a five-year relationship. Jamie, an up-and-coming writer, struggles to balance his sudden success with his increasingly tumultuous love life, while Cathy, an aspiring actress, deals with the frustrations of her own stalled career while watching her husband from the sidelines. Jamie tells his side of the tale in chronological order, while Cathy relives the relationship backwards, with both stories intersecting in the middle on their wedding day.

“A Wrinkle in Time” (November 2018): In this youth production based on Madeleine L’Engle’s novel, Meg is the quintessential square peg: a middle-school math whiz with glasses and a short temper. But when she and her strangely gifted little brother set off to find their missing father, they’re catapulted across time and space to a world where being different isn’t just an annoyance—it can cost you your life. Even with the help of curious otherworldly beings, Meg will have to conjure every power she can find, and then some, to put her family back together.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” (December 2018): The classic animated TV special comes to life in this faithful stage adaptation of Charles Schulz’s beloved tale in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang discover the true meaning of Christmas. When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

“A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration” (December 2018): It’s Christmas Eve on the frigid banks of the Potomac River, 1864. It seems like all Americans prepare for the holiday as best they can – Union and Confederate soldiers, slaves and freemen, as well as President Lincoln and Mary Todd. Set during a time when the country is divided by conflicting ideologies and convictions following a contentious presidential election, Paula Vogel’s sweeping, music-rich story is propelled by traditional American songs: marches and spirituals — all revitalized for this production by live musicians. “A Civil War Christmas” is a lively reminder for people of all beliefs about humanity’s potential for compassion, reconciliation and hope.

“Once on This Island Jr.” (February 2019): With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored musical score, “Once on This Island Jr.” is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, “The Little Mermaid,” and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical. This full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and even death.

“Fences” (February/March 2019): The Theatre Centre has committed to produce an August Wilson play each year for the next decade, and it’s starting with his towering masterpiece “Fences,” winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for best play. Set in 1957, it explores what holds families together (and drives them apart) in a powerful story filled with humor, love, hope, failure and triumph. The play follows Troy, a former Negro League baseball star whose prime came before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. After Troy’s rapid rise ends, he is forced to let go of his dreams and deal with his headstrong athletic son who has a chance to go so much further than he did.

“The Tale of Peter Rabbit” (March 2019): In this enchanting adaptation of the Beatrix Potter story, Peter is famous as the clever and daring rabbit who succeeds in invading mean Farmer McGregor’s cabbage patch, in spite of traps, scarecrows and other dangers. His sisters Flopsy and Mopsy, their friend Squirrel Nutkin and Cawdy the Crow all share his adventures in this endearing dramatization.

“Avenue Q” (May 2019): This laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

“The Foreigner” (May/June 2019): Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play, “The Foreigner” is an inspired comic romp. Englishman Charlie Baker has traveled to a lodge in Georgia with his friend on a military assignment. But shy Charlie is a wounded man, recovering from a lost marriage, and begs his friend to find a way to keep people from talking to him. And that’s how the story is created that Charlie is from some unnamed faraway exotic country and he can’t speak a word of English. And from that moment, the comedy ensues.

“Little Shop of Horrors” (July/August 2019): A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” after his co-worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination. It’s one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows and one of the most popular shows in the world.

The Theatre Centre’s 2018-2019 line-up will be offered to season subscribers as a family-friendly “Family Series” and a “Next Wave Series” of contemporary works. An early-bird season subscription offer will last through Sunday, Feb. 11, with a 30 percent discount to patrons who subscribe.

Announcing the Cast of THE GLASS MENAGERIE

Congratulations to the following, who have been cast in THE GLASS MENAGERIE;


First rehearsal is Monday, January 22. In general we will rehearse M-Th, 7-10.

I want to thank you all for auditioning. You made this pretty difficult; I could have cast this 2 or 3 times, and I thought long and hard about double-casting (or using understudies) to get more people in the room for what will surely prove a master class in Tennessee Williams. Why didn’t I do that? I don’t know; it’s as subjective as casting itself. But my hope is that the 40 people who auditioned will come back and audition another time. Thank you again for showing a newcomer how deep the talent pool is here. I will see the 5 of you Monday at 7:00.

Todd Olson
Executive Director

Theatre Centre Presents Agatha Christie’s THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES

In 1920, a young, unknown British writer named Agatha Christie, acting on a dare from her sister Madge, published her first novel, “The Mysterious Affair at Styles,” and the rest, as they say, is history. While it launched Christie’s career as one of the greatest mystery writers of all time, the story wasn’t adapted for the stage until 2012. So the Chattanooga Theatre Centre’s upcoming production of the stage adaptation could be called an old play or a new play. Either way, it will keep you guessing until the end.

The Chattanooga Theatre Centre presents Agatha Christie’s “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” beginning Friday, January 26, and continuing through Sunday, February 11.

The story is set in Essex, England, during the summer of 1917. Back from the war, Captain Arthur Hastings convalesces at Styles Court. But when the lady of the house suspiciously dies, the tranquil manor turns treacherous. The cause is murder and the killer could be anyone: her unappealing new husband, her ne’er-do-well son, the blunt female groundskeeper, even the local toxicologist. Enter Hercule Poirot, a brilliant Belgian refugee making his debut as Christie’s detective extraordinaire, who applies his famous brain to the seemingly unsolvable mystery.

Featured in the pivotal role as Poirot, one of the great detectives of English literature, is Patrick Brady, making his third appearance on the Theatre Centre stage. Brady previously delighted audiences as the singing Kris Kringle in last season’s “Miracle on 34th Street” and earlier in another Agatha Christie classic, “And Then There Were None.”

The cast of CTC newcomers and veterans of the theatre’s stage also includes Courtenay Cholovich (Mary Cavendish), Victoria Coady (Emily Inglethorpe), Dana Cole (Evelyn Howard), Rebekah Hildebrandt (Cynthia Murdoch), Evans Jarnefeldt (Capt. Arthur Hastings), Matt Johnson (Alfred Inglethorp), E.J. Laughter (Gardener), Mike Pala (Dr. Bauerstein), Dana Rogers (John Cavendish), and Sandy Whetmore (Dorcas).

The production is helmed by guest director Steve Ray, head of the UTC Theatre Department. Alexis Newson, who most recently appeared as Babette in the CTC production of “Beauty and the Beast,” is the stage manager.

Tickets are available by visiting the Theatre Centre box office at 400 River Street (Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.), by calling the box office at 423-267-8534 or by going to
