Sermon Center

Important Update

Due to restrictions imposed on the Sermon Center by the City of Independence due to the coronavirus, there are changes to the plays that CTI will present for the remainder of the season.

The CTI Board has made the very difficult decision to cancel our production of “The Grapes of Wrath.”

  • We have also postponed the Playwright Fest.
  • Auditions for “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” will take place July 13 and 14. 
  • We are planning on having our annual banquet in July. 

Congratulations to the directors for next season!

  • THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 – Michael Masterson
  • BAD SEED – Heather Ives
  • COMMUNICATING DOORS – Jack McCord
  • JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT – Greg Smith
