We offer multiple intensives taught by theater professionals from all around the country throughout our season, and offer inspiration to our company members through trips to see professional Broadway productions in Maine and NYC. We readily welcome anyone looking to fall in love with theater or improve their skills, at Cold Comfort.
CCT’s 2016 summer season brings three shows to the Belfast area: ‘Crimes of the Heart’, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play written by Beth Henley; ‘Happy Birthday America’, a musical celebration of the nation’s birthday; and ‘The Mikado’, the classic Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera.
Joshua Kauppila is a writer, poet, and agitator. Committed to social progress, he writes and works towards a new society. Active in the Belfast Poetry Community since 2011, his voice has been heard in the Poetry Slams, Jams and the Belfast Poetry Festival.
A committed free-thinker and anarchist, his works and life revolve around the uplift of the poor and marginalized and the dissolution of the social mechanisms which exploit and destroy human and non-human life.
Organizers and radical-artists thrive in a community of aware and assertive people, to that end, Joshua welcomes collaboration and conversation for those curious and committed to social transformation
” The folding twilight turns
lightness to darkness like origami
paper. skeletal trees darken the
clearing as the sun dips into
lands unseen. body braced
with inner warmth divining
its own coal to last the night ”
