Exciting news!

Cuesta College Theatre Program has been honored and selected to present the production of The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night-Time live in Las Vegas at the 55th Annual Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival during the week of Feb 13-17, 2023.

The show and its stellar cast will represent the central coast and receive a full production in Las Vegas. In addition, student playwrights, actors, directors, designers, stage managers, critics, and dramaturgs will join their peers in professional workshops—each designed to aid students in pursuing a valuable career in the arts.

Students will be working tirelessly to remount the production at the end of January to raise half of the required funds for this trip. We urge you to join us in supporting this wonderful group of ambassadors as they represent Cuesta College on this coveted national stage.

We need your help raising the necessary funding to get the show on the road!

Cuesta College Theatre students, thank you for providing an equitable opportunity
to take a trip that will strengthen and grow their futures!

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!

Hopefully, this information is helpful! Obviously, we can't help every family troubleshoot at home, but if you reach out in advance, we'll do our best to help. The CPAC Supervisor can be reached at: Joan_Hurwit@cuesta.edu
