Another opening, another show! Next Friday, our Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading series kicks off their 2014/15 Season with Richard Greenberg’s Take Me Out, directed by Daniel Freeman and featuring the talents of Greg Gorrindo, Mike Mesker, Leonard Flippen, Nathan Emmons, Cory Schonauer, Douglas Simmons, Keith Stanfield, Jorge Manly Gil and Terry Clark.
Winner of the 2003 Tony Award for Best Play, Take Me Out is a story about baseball and the tensions that are found both on and off the field. Click HERE for more information about the show and to purchase your tickets today.
Last season, our staged readings were so popular that they were often over-sold and our open seating plan (no assigned seats) was a bit of a problem. This season…no problem! Seats are now RESERVED for all of our Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Readings, so your seats are guaranteed! Want to guarantee your seats for all nine (9!!) staged readings this year? You can still purchase an Ubu’s Other Shoe Season Subscription for just $60. That’s a $30 savings over single ticket prices! Click HERE to purchase your UBU subscription today!
GOOD PEOPLE is the hottest ticket in town this weekend, but you can still get in to see this great show, we promise! You really don’t want to miss this critically-acclaimed season opening show at the Little Theatre. Great seats are still available for our Saturday matinee performance at 2 pm on September 20. We will also have a waiting list at the door for Friday and Saturday nights and our Sunday matinee performance. If you show up, we’ll find a way to get you in the door! CLICK HERE to see seating availability and to order online.
Our Academy of Creative Theatre is now gearing up for their winter production of The Secret Garden. Director Shelagh Garren will be looking for some talented young actors, ages 9-18, at auditions on October 14 and 16 right here at the Little Theatre. The show will take the stage January 9-25, 2015. So, if you have kids or grandkids, nephews, nieces or neighbors, OR if you just KNOW a local kid who might like to be a part of a fully-staged production at the Little Theatre, bring ’em on down! Audition information can be found HERE on our website and tickets will be available for purchase very soon.
It’s going to be tough to say goodbye to this one. I haven’t performed in a fully-staged production in over two years and it’s been a lot of fun. If you saw it, I really hope you enjoyed it. And if you haven’t seen it, you’d better get over here this weekend before it’s gone forever. Nope, there won’t be a video you can watch afterwards. You can’t capture LIVE theatre on the small screen. It’s a communal experience. It takes a live audience to complete the “circuit” so the electricity can really flow. It’s magical when it works. And Good People works.
And just before I go, I gotta give a shout-out to NO SHAME SEPTEMBER! If you haven’t experienced No Shame Theatre, it’s time you did. It’s FREE and it’s awesome (usually…)
MARK YOUR CALENDARS for Friday, September 26. Doors and bar open at 9:30 pm, submissions at 10 pm and mind-boggling, original theatre begins at 10:30 pm. Click HERE for more information about No Shame and we’ll see you there next Friday!
Join us for some live, local, magical theatre on 45 out of 52 weekends this season at your San Luis Obispo Little Theatre. You’ll be glad you did!
See you at the theatre!
