About Us Contra Costa Civic Theatre is a nonprofit community theater and one of only three live performing arts organizations with permanent homes in West Contra Costa County. Our mission is to provide affordable, high quality entertainment to residents throughout the East Bay and provide training in live performing arts for children and adults. CCCT was established in 1959 by Louis and Bettianne Flynn and a group of dedicated volunteers. it was originally located at Blake Street and San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito. In 1970, the City of El Cerrito approached the CCCT with a proposal to take over the defunct Boys Club building at Pomona Avenue and Moeser Lane (our current site). However, the building was just a shell with no stage area. Through fundraising efforts and personal loan, money was raised and construction began. Volunteers worked nonstop for nine months. The theater opened in July 1971 with the production of Play It Again Sam. Contra Costa Civic Theatre is proud to be an independent, self-sufficient organization. The theater and its programs are supported by the San Francisco Foundation, California Arts Council, The Ed. Fund, box office sales, tuition fees and donations. However, the community is responsible for its formation and consequential success. Volunteers continue to be instrumental in all facets of CCCTs programming. Similarly, numerous businesses and social organizations have supported the theater throughout its long history. What started out as a small local theater has grown into a source of pride for the county of Contra Costa and the entire East Bay. CCCT hopes to continue fulfilling its mission in new and creative ways for generations to come. The Contra Costa Civic Theatre is a leader in on-stage training for children and young adults. Live at CCCT, the theaters youth program features drama and musical theater classes, vocal training, summer drama camp and an after-school program. Students learn firsthand about make-up, lighting, costuming, play writing, set construction and basic theater training. Also included are activities lead by industry specialists in such areas as stage combat, choreography and film making. The classes are structured around improvisational exercises, auditions, rehearsals and a performance.
