OREGON CITY -- On the Fourth of July, 1874, little Charley Ross was kidnapped. When famed showman P.T. Barnum gets wind of the crime, a media circus erupts.

Join CCC's Theatre Department for the production of "The Lost Boy," written by CCC English instructor Sue Mach. The Oregon Book Award-winning play explores the heartache of distraught parents, the bungling of police and bureaucrats, misleading newspaper reports, circus sideshows and Barnum's shrewd publicity stunts.

Under the direction of artistic director James Eikrem, "The Lost Boy" features scenic and lighting design by Christopher Whitten and costumes by Alva Bradford.

An opening night reception will be held Thursday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m., with music provided by CCC's Jazz Combo under the direction of Music Department Chair Lars Campbell. Refreshments will be served.

"The Lost Boy" runs March 1-11, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. All shows are in the Niemeyer Osterman Theatre, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City. A special "pay-what-you-can" matinee will be held Friday, March 9, at 10 a.m.

Tickets are $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and $5 (or pay-what-you-can at the door) for students. For tickets, visit or call 503-594-3153.
