SLOLT would like to wish you all the best in 2008! We’ve got lots going on around here, so be sure to stop by.
Lend Me a Tenor opens on Friday, Jan. 11th at 8 p.m. This is the perfect show for those of you who love to laugh. This show will run until February 3, 2008. Tickets are selling fast, so don’t miss out!
Tickets for our Legend FUNdraiser series, “What I Say? A tribute to Ray Charles” has already begun to sell out on some martini nights, so be sure to call and reserve your tickets before it’s too late! This show opens on Feb. 22, 2008 and plays until March 23, 2008.
We are in the midst of some backstage renovations which we hope will please all our volunteers. The green room and dressing rooms are almost done and then we’ll move on to the kitchen. We’ve got lots to do and could use as much help as we can get. If you feel like helping out a couple hours (and honestly, even an hour would be a great help) painting, sorting or laying down the new floors, please call Katie at 781-3889 x11. We are working as much as we can before Jan. 5th, so Lend Me a Tenor can get into the space for tech week. We’d really be happy to see you! Thanks!
Another date to mark on your calendar is Friday, Feb. 8th – our next Reader’s Theatre production, “Worse than Murder”. Delilah Shank directs this story of love, family, espionage, betrayal, politics and a government over-reaching its boundaries.
In the early 1950’s Joseph McCarthy and the threat of Communism was America’s ‘war on terror’. Although Russia had been an Ally during World War II, the race to develop a bomb and keep the secret of this nuclear weapon in the exclusive hands of the U.S. was the number one priority. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were the two Americans, who were accused, tried and executed for passing this information on to the Soviets. It was described as a crime “worse than murder.” In this play the controversial case is relived through the eyes of Rosenberg’s two now-adult sons.
In addition, our new ACT classes start on Monday, Jan. 14, 2008. We’ve already begun with registration, so call soon if you’d like to take a class.
