CCBC Performing Arts presents Hotel Cassiopeia by Charles Mee March 23 -27 in the F. Scott Black Theatre, CCBC Essex.

Imagine walking the streets of New York City, seeing the sights, hearing the rhythms of the city, jostling through the vibrant press of life. This play is like doing just that, except you're taking it all in through the mind of visual artist Joseph Cornell. Peer into his imagination which includes cameos of Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Charles Boyer, Hedy Lamarr, Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren, Henri-Robert-Marcel Duchamp, and Arshile Gorky! Flashes of wonder and unexpected juxtapositions articulate the moments in life that are truly worth living.

Performance times include:
• 11:10 a.m. Thursday, March 23
• 7 p.m. Friday & Saturday, March 24, 25
• 3 p.m. Sunday, March 26 (American Sign Language interpreted)
• 10 a.m. Monday, March 27

CCBC’s production Hotel Cassiopeia is directed by CCBC Adjunct Faculty Brad Norris, with scenic and lighting design by Terri Raulie, costumes by Jessica Rassp, projections and technical direction by Jason Randolph and sound design by Heiko Spieker. The stage manager is Andrew Pfluger.
