PINOCCHIO! Plus AUDITIONS for two Pulitzer prize-winners, another great UBU staged reading and an ENCHANTED EVENING for Valentine’s Day!

That just about covers it. Wow. Quite a line-up for the first two months of the year. So much for gradually getting back up to speed after the holidays. We prefer to start the new year off with a bang! There WILL be theatre. LOTS of it. All GREAT. So, pull out your calendar and start planning your next two months, because you don’t want to miss a minute!

First up is the story of the little wooden marionette who wanted to be a real boy. PINOCCHIO!  We all know the story, but it’s always worth hearing again, especially when it’s performed by our talented Academy of Creative Theatre students! Show dates are January 10-26 and some shows are already selling out, so be sure to buy your TICKETS today!

WANTED:  2 women, 2 men; all excellent actors who can carry the weight and communicate the beauty of this Pulitzer Prize-winning play by David Auburn. Director Teresa Thuman has asked you to prepare two contrasting contemporary monologues for your audition here at the theatre January 25-26. CLICK HERE  for more information and break a leg! (PROOF runs April 4-27)

OTHER DESERT CITIES is a searing comedy with banter that dazzles and decimates…one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade. Our next Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading hits the stage January 31-February 1. Written by Jon Robin Baitz and directed by John Battalino, Other Desert Cities features the talents of Annie Guynn, Polly Firestone Walker, Michael Siebrass, Jenny Shaheen and Bob Peterson. ‘Nuff said. Don’t miss this one. It’s a definite winner. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

The perfect show for Valentine’s Day! Tickets are already going fast for this enchanting musical revue featuring the legendary music of Rodgers & Hammerstein! Carousel, Oklahoma, South Pacific, The Sound of Music, Flower Drum Song…the list goes on and on. This is also our winter fundraising musical, so you can enjoy a lovely, romantic evening out and support the Little Theatre at the same time! Mark your calendars: February 14-March 16. SOME ENCHANTED EVENING, featuring the enchanting music that has become an integral part of our everyday lives. Buy your tickets early for this intimate and memorable musical revue!

You know it. You love it. So, I guess the question is, is it your turn to strut your stuff right here at the Little Theatre in one of the most popular musicals of all time? You’ve got more than a month to prepare before auditions for A CHORUS LINE on February 18, 19 & 25. What are you waiting for?!!  CLICK HERE for more information and start working on your singing and dancing! (A CHORUS LINE runs May 16-June 15.)

Happy New Year everyone!
