Why Theater?
Chincoteauge Island Theatre Company

CITC Answers the Question ... Why Theater?

We work hard to promote theatrical events on Chincoteague because ...

  • Acting in a play builds confidence in everyone, from young people to adults.
  • Working on a play as an ensemble builds a strong community. We create theatrical events of which everyone can be proud.
  • Theater often asks questions we cannot ask out loud; it makes you think about things we often take for granted.
  • Theater is a reflection of life: we can connect with a character or story because of our natural sense of empathy.
  • Theater is fun!  There is a reason why it is called a play!

The CITC produces plays and other theatre programs year-round. You can help CITC grow.  CITC always needs…

  • Donations: props, set pieces, costumes and, of course, funding.
  • Creative people who can make costumes, obtain props, and help with lighting, sound and sets.
  • Actors, ushers, and those interested in helping us with marketing.

Join us for Play Club - an informal gathering where we read plays out loud. You can read a part or just listen. Each reading is followed by a light hearted analytical chat. Participants are welcome to bring a finger food to share. It's always a lot of fun and it's a great way to meet new people, make friends and learn more about the theatre and the CITC.

The History Plays

CITC Presents The History Plays

Chincoteague Island History Plays
Mr. Hill and Jennie in The Ballad of Jennie Hill
Shipwreck and The Ballad of Jennie Hill
Held August 30-31, 2014
The Island Theatre on Main Street
By local playwright Lisa Cannon
Directed and produced by Lexi Hubb, in partnership with CCA and CIAO.
The CITC presented two short plays written by local author, Lisa Cannon. The plays illustrated two famous Chincoteague historical events. The Ballad of Jennie Hill tells the story of an 1885 murder and Shipwreck is about the discovery of the orphaned James Alone and his life in Assateague Village. The plays were first performed to a sold-out audience in September 2013 at the Island Theater but were expanded for the 2014 productions. Appreciative audiences rated the plays a big success.
