On Golden Pond
On Golden Pond focuses on aging couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. During the year the story takes place, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé and his son in tow. The play explores the often turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage.

In Memory of Rob Babione
It is with great sorrow that we report the passing of Robert Babione. Rob was one of the founding fathers of Curtain Call Theatre and continued to be an active member of our Board of Directors. Rob also acted in many of our productions.
Rob was a founding member of the New Prague Arts Council and remained an active member of that organization. He was very active in his church and sang in the church choir. He also loved playing cards.
In remembrance of Rob, Curtain Call Theatre is naming our annual scholarship for graduating High School seniors the "Robert Babione Memorial Scholarship".
A memorial service was held on Sunday, November 11 at Friedens Ev Lutheran Church.
You can now opt-in to our e-mail list:
Curtain Call Theatre's Robert Babione Memorial Scholarship Program.
Each year we will be awarding up to two $500 scholarships to graduating seniors. Candidates must have participated in a Curtain Call Theatre production during their high school years and must be going on to study in the area of performing arts (almost any aspect of theatre, music or dance).

Take a walk down memory lane by reviewing our history of shows.
Curtain Call Theatre was started in 1994. Our first production was the Pat Cook comedy, "Three Murders and its only Monday" at Montgomery/Lonsdale High School. In 1996 we did our first musical, Andrew Lloyd Webbers "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat".
Curtain Call Theatres season has grown over the years and now consists of three productions:
Our summer show is normally a large cast musical. Performances are at New Prague High School in even numbered years and in Montgomery at either Montgomery-Lonsdale High School or at Hilltop Hall in odd numbered years.
Our fall show can be almost anything, a comedy, a drama, a collection of one act plays, or just about anything else. It is usually performed at New Prague Middle School during the last two weekends in October.
In winter we present a dinner theatre at Hilltop Hall in Montgomery. Hilltop Hall is a beautifully restored orchestra hall from about 1892, when every community in the area had an orchestra. This show is normally a broad comedy. It is performed the last two weekends in February.
See the "CCT History" page for a list of all the shows weve done.
