A DARK weekend this week means a GREAT opening night NEXT week! Declare INDEPENDENCE!

Bit by bit, nail by nail and wall by wall, the set for INDEPENDENCE is coming together! It truly is a marvel to see how set designer Dave Linfield does it. As you can see by the floral wallpaper used on the walls, INDEPENDENCE takes us back in time a few years and you’re going to love the trip. Costumer Randon Pool has been spending many hours hitting the thrift stores and Prop Mistress Charlene Premer has been polishing up the china service. Next week, we’ll see how the year 1985 looks live onstage.

Suzy Newman (Director), Makayla Dubois (Kess), Clara Jane Fulks (Sherry), Alicia Klein (Jo) and Jill Turnbow (Evelyn)

“You can’t begin to work on a play about family without all of the same excitement and trepidation saved for a trip home for Thanksgiving.”  ~ From the Director’s Notes on Independence

Set in the small town of Independence, Iowa, this award-winning drama by the author of A Walk in the Woods and Fortinbras, is a story of family ties that bind…and sometimes strangle. Featuring four very talented local actresses — Makayla Dubois, Clara Jane Fulks, Alicia Klein and Jill Turnbow — and led by director Suzy Newman, Independence will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. In other words, this is the real deal. You don’t want to miss this wonderful production!

Director Cynthia Anthony is looking for 3 women and 2 men for the Ubu’s Other Shoe staged reading of A Hotel on Marvin Gardens. Auditions will take place on Monday, October 21 at 6 pm here at the Little Theatre. This hilarious comedy by Nagle Jackson will hit the stage on December 17 & 18.



Have you marked your calendars yet for these November/ December shows? If not, do it NOW! (Click HERE for more information about our mainstage schedule.)  Every square inch of the theatre is jammed with actors rehearsing every night of the week and we’re looking forward to a very jolly holiday season here at the Little Theatre.
