Sproul’s "The Priest with Dirty Clothes."


Tammie Butt

Founder and Director

CCT began in 2010, as a result of Tammie's family moving to Charlotte from the Raleigh area. Her family was extremely involved with a youth theatre program back home, and they missed it desperately. Finding nothing similar, after MUCH prayer and consideration, Tammie jumped in with both feet when God, in his kindness and faithfulness, brought the opportunity to found CCT before her. Since then, Tammie has brought nearly a dozen shows to the stage, in addition to leading classes, designing costumes, and seeking out opportunities to serve the Lord through theatre arts.

Leanne Thurman


Leanne has a background in both Spanish and music education, and currently teaches Spanish at Carmel Christian school, where she also works with the theatre program. This is where Leanne met Tammie Butt, who introduced her to Charlotte Christian Theatre. Leanne joined CCT in the spring of 2016, as music director for the productions of "Esther" and "Peter Pan." She is looking forward to many, many more productions with these great groups of people!
