Back on Track!

My apologies for dropping off the face of the earth like that! We are back on track and plan to blog regularly again.

Coming up soon, we will be featuring a weekly ACT update and a weekly Volunteer update, in addition to announcements about upcoming events and special projects. So make sure you check back regularly!

Quick Update:

M. Butterfly has opened and received a lovely review from the New Times. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, please do! Please note that this production does contain adult content and partial nudity.

We will be announcing our 2008-2009 season very soon. All our SLOLT supporters and volunteers will be receiving an email with the announcement, so make sure we don’t go into your spam. I hope to be able to make the official announcement by the beginning of next week.

Our next Readers’ Theatre production will be Taking Leave by Nagel Jackson, directed by Anet Carlin on Friday, May 9th at 8 pm. See synopsis below for more info.

In the middle of the night in his home in Seattle , Professor Eliot Pryne, PhD, D.Litt., is packing what he believes is a suitcase and leaving what he believes is a hotel. Suffering from dementia, Eliot is actually preparing to “take leave” of the real world and to enter a new one, but the transition is terrifying. His alter-ego, seen only by the audience, charts this final voyage speaking as Eliot once did when his seminars on Shakespeare and Chaucer overflowed with enthusiastic students. The central event of this oddly comic, yet fully sympathetic play is the visitation of Eliot’s three daughters, who must decide what to do with their father, now that the hired nurse can no longer handle his antics. Motifs from Shakespeare’s King Lear, on which Eliot was an authority, resound throughout the play. A dark comedy you won’t want to miss.

My Fair Lady opens Friday, May 23, 2008. We are very excited about this large production and look forward to seeing you at the theatre! You can reserve tickets online through our ticketing system. Simply go to our website and click on the tickets tab.

I’ll be posting pictures from our first annual Volunteer Appreciation Day soon!

Have a wonderful week and check back in a couple days for more updates.

Your Executive Director,
Wendy-Marie Foerster
