*New Plays Showcase*
*Different Shows Every Weekend*

Show Description:
The centerpiece of CPT's season, Big Box provides local artists with the opportunity to create and produce new work. Over seven weeks, Big Box includes more than ten world-premiere workshop performances of theatre, dance, opera and genre-defying performances.

The goal of Big Box is to support new work and local artists.

CPT provides:
- The James Levin Theatre
- Basic production staff, stage management, box office support
- Marketing and advertising support

The artists provide the rest!

The writers, directors, actors, and designers selected for Big Box dedicate themselves to creating new and original work, or stretching their artistic powers by working in new disciplines.

Clicking on the shows titles will take you to the CPT's website regarding each new work.
