David Carey Foster

For the past four weeks, rehearsals for our season opening production of GOOD PEOPLE have been rolling along, six nights per week, under the skilled hand of David Carey Foster. If you are a long time fans of PCPA or The Great American Melodrama, you may have seen David performing on those stages a few years back. Now, you’re more likely to catch him on an episode of The Mentalist or Dexter, or onstage at the La Jolla Playhouse, the Colony Theatre in Los Angeles or at dozens of other regional theatres in the country. This is David’s first experience directing a community theatre production, but we hope it won’t be the last. Putting together this ambitious production of GOOD PEOPLE under David’s expert direction has been an incredible experience for our talented, amateur cast and we can’t wait to share it with you. You can read David’s thoughts about the show in the Director’s Notes from our playbill HERE.

Good People opens this Friday, September 5th and runs through Sunday, September 21st.  CLICK HERE to make your reservations today.

Directors David Norum (FROST/NIXON) and Don Stewart (A CHRISTMAS STORY) are looking for some talented actors to take on our next two shows. Get all the details about auditions for both of these shows on our website HERE and we hope to see you at auditions over the next two weeks.

FROST/NIXON is an Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading that won’t require a huge rehearsal time commitment, making it a great way to get your feet wet as an actor here at the Little Theatre. Roles are available for 9 men and 2 women and the show runs for two days only, October 21-22. Powerful script, great director. Gonna be a great show!

A CHRISTMAS STORY will be a great way to spend the holidays onstage! Roles are available for 5 children and 4 adults, so you can bring the whole family down for auditions! The show will run December 5-21. If you’re not familiar with the story that has become a holiday viewing tradition for thousands of families, check out a clip of the popular film version above and “don’t shoot your eye out!”

 Do you think you’d enjoy being part of a Little Theatre production backstage?  The Little Theatre is always looking for people to work behind the scenes on sets, lighting, stage crew, props, costumes and STAGE MANAGEMENT! If you’re calm, cool and collected under pressure, like to spend your weekends with theatre folk and enjoy being one of those magical people who can make everything run smoothly, mark your calendars for our STAGE MANAGEMENT TRAINING on Sunday, September 28th at 1 pm. Watch this BLOG and our WEBSITE  for more information or EMAIL Kevin Harris to sign up today!

Gotta run now. Our final dress rehearsal for GOOD PEOPLE is tonight and there is much to be done before opening night on Friday! Hope to see you at the Little Theatre very soon – have a great week!
