HELD OVER: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

CPAC Experimental Theater
Friday, Feb 3, 2023 at 7:30 PM (PT)

We are so excited and honored to announce that Cuesta Drama has been invited by the KCACTF Region 8 Executive Board to represent the Western U.S. by presenting their production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the 55th Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival regional finals in Las Vegas in February 2023!

In order to prepare and raise the necessary travel funds, we will be remounting the production for a limited 6-show run.


Cuesta Drama is seeking sponsors! All donations will support student travel to the national festival, however: donors making contributions at the $1000 level or higher will become "official sponsors" of this remounted production!

Hailed as "One of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway" by The New York Times, don’t miss this Tony Award-winning play by Simon Stephens. bree Valle directs this "dazzling" (Associated Press) adaptation of Mark Haddon's best-selling novel in a limited two-week run in Cuesta College’s intimate Experimental Theater.

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

NOTE: There are no refunds or exchanges. This event will start promptly on time and late seating is not available.
