About CFCArts Theatre

In 2015, Central Florida Community Arts launched the first full season of the Theatre Program. Different than the Summer Broadway Series, the year-round Theatre program is housed in a small Blackbox Theatre setting, giving patrons a more intimate, in-your-face theatrical experience. CFCArts Theatre, under the direction of Donald Rupe, seeks to produce Theatre that appeals to a wide variety of audiences. In each production, our director looks for a fresh perspective in already established plays and musicals. The 5th season of CFCArts Theatre will begin in July with Bye Bye Birdie, followed by Next to Normal, Twelve Angry Jurors, Sweeney Todd, A Christmas Story, and The Lion in Winter. We will then be producing the 2019 Orlando Fringe Smash Hit From Here Written and Directed by Donald Rupe with Music by Jason Bailey and Donald Rupe. We will end the season with the Disney Classic Cinderella. For audition information please visit our Audition Page to reserve an audition time.
