Meet the Cast

DIRECTOR - Tammie Butt
CCT Founder and Director
"Thanks so much for joining us for the world premiere of 'Fairytale: Escape the Cliché.' The cast has worked very hard to bring you this amazing show, and we trust the message that you are crafted by your Savior will impact your life the way it has impacted ours."

STAGE MANAGER - Hannah Simmons
Previous CCT Productions: Scrooge, Around the World in 80 Days, Pinocchio
“It feels so good to be back with CCT! I love the people here. But more importantly, I love their faith. The cast has worked incredibly hard on this show, so I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you are blessed! "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever." 1 Timothy 1:17”

CLAIRE - Savannah Butt
Previous CCT Productions: Through The Looking Glass, Beauty and the Beast, Ruth, Little Women, Scrooge
“I'm so thankful and proud of my mum for this company she's built and I'm so honored to be able to participate this year from the cast. Thank you for supporting us and coming to see our show! We hope you enjoy, and we pray that you can see a little bit of yourself in each of the characters!”

ALEX - David Herlihy
Previous CCT Productions: Scarlet, Peter Pan, Esther, and more!
“I'm super excited for you all to see how awesome the show is. We worked really hard and I hope you enjoy it.”

STEVEN - Josh Chacko
Previous CCT Productions: Scarlet, Esther, Pinocchio
“Fairy Tale is an amazing story with so many good themes that I can't even tell you then all. But one of my favorites is how God uses all things to bring good. In the play Claire always hates the way her family does things, but as you get deeper they aren't always wrong. In this we can see that even in things we don't expect God can use them for good. Hope you enjoy the show.”

Previous CCT Productions: Esther, Scarlet
“Thank you, stethoscopes, for listening to my heart. Something I need to learn to do myself.”

QUEEN PERSEPHONE - Rachel Peatross
Previous CCT Productions: Esther, Pilgrim, Little Women, Scrooge, Beauty and the Beast, Through the Looking Glass
“Thank you, Jeremy and Erin, for writing this amazing show! Tammie, thanks for letting me be the Queen. Cast family, you're the best. If I could remind myself and all of you of one thing from this show, it would be the lines in the last song of the show:

I am crafted by my Savior
He knows every weakness, He knows every secret
Before my life began, He loved me for who I am.
He is with me on this journey.
I am moving onward, I am pushing forward
Down a road less traveled to the great unknown.
When no one stands beside me, still I'll know
I do not go alone,
You do not go alone,
We'll never be alone.

PANSY - Kasey Peatross
Previous CCT Productions: Scrooge
“I am going to write an amazing bio. All puns and witticisms - just teeming with clever word play. I'll share delightful anecdotes about rehearsal times and the friendships made, amazing insights, personal lessons learned, and put in a fitting quote at the end to wrap it all up. I just hope I have enough roo-”

PIPSY - Sophie Newman
Previous CCT Productions: Scarlet
“One way that Fairytale has touched me is the fact that no one is a mistake. "For I am fearfully and wonderfully made" Psalms 139:14. God has made us each the way that we were meant to be. He puts us through struggles that he knows we can handle. And he has a plan for your life.”

KADO - Gaired Jordan
CCT Debut
“I'm thankful for this show because I just moved to Charlotte in March. I didn't have much community nor many friends. This show gave me the opportunity to get involved with something locally that was both fun and spiritually rich.”

Previous CCT Productions: Little Women, Scarlet, Rumpelstiltskin
“After much deliberation, I've decided to give a simple thank you to YOU. Yes you. Thanks for the motivation.”

CHAUNCEY - Mikayla Butt
Previous CCT Productions: “Been here since the beginning! I guess that means I'm the OG here.”
“I cannot begin to touch on what this play and the cast means to me. I have learned humility the hard way, been challenged as an actress, and built relationships. This play taught me that I will never be someone else, I have to be ok with who God made me to be. I'd like to thank Erin Phillips for being my friend when I felt like I had none, Jeremy Phillips for coaching us through the music, and both of you for writing this show!”

GORAX THE TERRIBLE - Josh Capriglione
Previous CCT Productions: Pilgrim, Esther, Peter Pan, Scarlet
“Thank you, so much for coming to support this performance of Fairytale! We have worked hard on making this the best performance it can be, so I hope that you thoroughly enjoy it. I play a villainous character that does nothing but kidnap the poor princesses… What’s that? Cliché?.. Meh, it’s a living.”

Previous CCT Productions: Pilgrim, Esther, Scarlet
“What Alexis said.”

TOWN CRIER - Linda Cable
Previous CCT Productions: Pilgrim, Esther, Scarlet
“To my husband, who encouraged me to get back into theater (even though he deals with enough drama at home,) thank you! To Tammie Butt, who allowed all the staff members to audition regardless of the workload it created for her - thank you! To Jeremy and Erin Phillips, the playwrights extraordinaire who created a musical encouraging us to seek our Author's direction for our lives - thank you! To the fabulous cast and crew, YAR! (which be "thank you!" in pirate speech...) And to the God who has saved me, protected me, sustained me, encouraged me, corrected me and given me so much to be joyful about - THANK YOU! Hope you all enjoy the show (YAR!)”


Faith Brown

“Some people are blessings, others are lessons... Now it's time for a joke cheesy enough to make you want your money back: Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet? Because they can spend years at C.”

Rachel Capps
Previous CCT Productions: The Little Mermaid, Sense and Sensibility, Hamlet, Esther, Peter Pan
“Why don’t pirates shower before they walk the plank? Because they’ll just wash up on shore later. Thanks for watching us friendly pirates stink up the place!"

Natalie Capriglione
Previous CCT Productions: Pilgrim, Esther, Scarlet
“As always, thank you to my beloved family (by blood or not) for your support in everything. Special thanks to Jeremy and Erin, for this masterpiece, and Tammie, for casting me as a pirate. And a very special thanks to all the dogs I have befriended, and the ones I have yet to befriend. Keep woofing.”

Happiness is singing together when day is through
And happiness is those who sing with you
Happiness is morning and evening
Daytime and nighttime too
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you.

Andrew Wood

“I enjoyed being a part of this production. It was outside my normal interests. However I like to try new things and learning from new experiences. It has been a good time. Truly thankful to our Great God who has taking the totally depraved human that I am and given me new life. Thankful for my wonderful family, great friends, a plan to work toward for the future.”

“This show is so very amazing. The music, the message, even the comedy of the lines have been meaningful to me. Thank you Jeremy and Erin for putting all the time and effort into writing this. Thank you Mrs. B. for teaching us not only how to act, but how to glorify God and grow in our faith. You put so much effort into this to make the productions truly awesome. And thanks to my wonderful family and friends. But most importantly, praise be to God for working things just right so that we could have the opportunity to perform this show. Enjoy! My favorite verse: ‘Now, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.’- Romans 8:37"

“I am so happy that I have been apart of this amazing production!! I would like to thank God for everything he has done for me and every person he has brought into my life. And thank you mom and dad for driving me to theatre every week! I would also like to thank my best friend Quinn for being such an amazing friend and always being there for me. And my friends Carson, Faith and Ellie for putting up with my weirdness, and of course Ms. Tammie for all she has done with CCT. I honestly don't even know how she does this every week! And I hope you enjoy the show! :)”
