The Chincoteague Island Theatre Company was founded in March 2011 when artistic director, Lexi Hubb, approached the CCA about starting a community theatre organization on the island. Lexi holds a BA in theatre arts from Towson University and is a New York City-trained dramatist.
The mission of the CITC is to work with our sponsor, the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance, to further enhance the island's cultural and artistic opportunities by introducing theatre performance and education. The CITC produces plays and performances year-round. All of our productions are created and performed right on Chincoteague.
Over the last SIX years, CITC has been very busy with:
Sold-Out main stage winter productions: And Then There Were None-2012, Blithe Spirit- 2013, Arsenic and Old Lace-2014, Harvey-2015, Mornings at Seven-2016, The Curious Savage- 2017, Enchanted April- 2018)
