Happy 6th anniversary to our M.A.D., SPELLING BEE final weekend, AUDITIONS and the HOLIDAYS are coming!

We had a bit of a celebration at last night’s Little Theatre board meeting. November 19th marks the date when, six years ago, Kevin Harris took the helm at the San Luis Obispo Little Theatre. It’s been an amazing six years, marked by off the chart growth both artistically and organizationally. In the words of our board president, Bryce Engstrom:

“I am simply in awe of how much Kevin Dale Harris has managed to accomplish as Managing Artistic Director at the San Luis Obispo Little Theatre in his six years with us. Dude, you rock. Happy anniversary.”

Thanks Kevin. We’re looking forward to what the next six years will bring!

It’s almost time for “The Last Goodbye.” What a run it’s been!  Many, many  thanks to the amazing cast and crew of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE for all of their hard work and heart bringing this great show to the Little Theatre stage. Performances this weekend are sold-out, but you might still be able to catch the BEE if you arrive one hour before show time and get your name on our waiting list. You’ve got five more chances: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm. We can usually squeeze in 8-10 people, so give it a try! You’ll be glad you did!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of ANNA IN THE TROPICS, who enjoyed two full houses this week as well. Thank you Leo Cortez and the amazing cast pictured above for bringing us such an insightful, beautifully written drama as our third Ubu’s Other Shoe staged reading. Mark your calendars now for our Ubu #4, MISS WITHERSPOON, taking the stage on December 16 and 17.

Here it comes… the show you’ve all been waiting for:  SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN!!  Auditions are this Sunday, beginning at 4 pm. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this delightful musical! Check out all the details HERE, bring your tap shoes and we hope to see you on Sunday !

This December, we’re unwrapping a double feature of holiday hilarity that you won’t want to miss! Be sure to make your plans now to attend the classic holiday comedy, A CHRISTMAS STORY and our late-night version of holiday good cheer, THE SANTALAND DIARIES. Some shows are nearly sold out already, so make your reservations today and share your holiday with good friends at the Little Theatre!

The holidays and the future here at the Little Theatre look very bright indeed and we are so very thankful for your support both off and on the stage. We hope you’ll share the fun, share the joy, share the laughs and the music and the warmth right along with us this holiday season and in the new year.  Have a great weekend and we’ll see you soon!
