Fall 2023 CPAC season sponsored by Joan G. Sargen in loving memory of Dr. Marie E. Rosenwasser



After completely selling out two previous runs of this production, and winning ELEVEN NATIONAL AWARDS from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF), Cuesta Drama returns for one final remount of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

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.

Tips & Tricks for best viewing:

You can most likely enjoy the concert from the device you're using right now; maybe it's a computer, phone, or tablet. You might also be able to view the concert on a Smart TV. Just make sure that the quality is set to the highest number on the settings gear icon at the bottom of the video.

If you're accessing the video from a Smart TV, and you don't have the ability to input the web address into a browser, here's the best course of action:

  • On a separate device, sign into your YouTube account and subscribe to the CPAC channel (free to create if you don't already have one)
  • On that same device, paste the URL from your ticket confirmation page and click the "Watch Later" button (this may be an icon that looks like three bars + a plus sign)
  • Then, open YouTube on your TV (make sure you're signed in), go to your "Watch Later" list, and you should see it there!
