We have been a community run organization, with the intention of entertaining our local audiences since 1933!

 Our aim is to support the development of Cambridge’s amateur performing arts community. The work we do here at the Cambridge Community Players (CCP) connects and enriches the lives of both the volunteers and our audience. There are may ways to show your support for our mission, for more information please take a look at our volunteer and membership pages.

Cambridge Community Players Long and Illustrious History:

The Cambridge Community Players (formerly the Galt Little Theatre) was originally started by a principal of the Galt Collegiate Institute (GCI), Dr. T.H. Wholton. He, with some of his staff and students created a group called Galt Collegiate Players. From this theatre loving group of people came the Galt Little Theatre Company. They met at the YMCA in August 1933. The Galt Little Theatre put their first shows on at Tassie Hall. Due to their growing success, the company performed at other venues such as the Galt Public Library and in the Delta Playhouse. Not having a permanent home, they rehearsed, stored their sets, costumes and props in a variety of places. They used the old Post Office, Kirkham’s Appliance store, the old Gore Building on Main St., the Savage Shoe building in Preston and the Preston Hydro building, to name a few. In 1982 the City of Cambridge purchased and renovated Water St. Baptist Church and created the Cambridge Arts Theatre. The Galt Little Theatre was given a permanent residence there and that is where we reside to this day!

It is 1880 and the story begins “before the feeble dawn of gaslight and tea” in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Manningham. It seems idyllic and yet … does the house hold a secret?

Can Mrs. Manningham find the courage and confidence to help Inspector Rough uncover the secret of the upper middle class home and right a past wrong?
