Important Announcement about our Clay Terrace Playhouse

Patrons, CCP Volunteers and Friends


Carmel Community Players is in the middle of our 24th season.  For the last eight plus years, we have provided "quality entertainment up close " at Clay Terrace and have performed all our shows there.


Over that time, Clay Terrace has been a friend to CCP by providing a lease at a fraction of market value.  Last week, Clay Terrace informed us they are no longer able to able to continue that arrangement.  While the timing of this announcement was sudden, it was not totally unexpected.  We knew that one day the competitive demand for space in Clay Terrace would force us to move our playhouse.


That day is now.


The production of American Buffalo which runs two weekends, February 23rd to March 3rd, will be our last show at the Playhouse at Clay Terrace.  This is a special production running only two weekends.  This show is not part of our 2017-18 season ticket package.  We will provide additional information on this show in subsequent emails.


The shows will go on!


Over our history, Carmel Community Players have staged performances at many different venues in the Carmel area. We will go back to that approach while we search for a permanent home.


We are now in the process of securing venues for the remaining shows in our 2017-18 season (Ragtime, Is He Dead?, and Kitchen Witches) and are beginning the process of evaluating our long-term options. 


We have identified available locations for the remainder of this season’s shows but have not finalized contracts for renting the theaters.  We will announce them in the coming days.


Thank you again for your continued support!

Winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play


David Mamet's AMERICAN BUFFALO is a volatile drama that starred Robert Duvall in the original Broadway production and has seen revivals with Al Pacino and most recently on Broadway with John Leguizamo in 2008. In a Chicago junk shop three small-time crooks (actors Larry Adams, Daniel Shock, and Earl Campbell) plot to rob a man of his coin collection.


These high-minded grifters fancy themselves "businessmen" pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality - "Donny", the oafish junk shop owner; "Bobby", a young junkie Donny has taken under his wing and "Teach", a violently paranoid braggart- is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams.
