The Goat takes the stage for 3 shows only & Orlando Auditions

Where did the year go? I know, it’s hard to believe, but this weekend we’ll present the FINAL SHOW of our 2014/2015 Season, an Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading of Edward Albee’s THE GOAT (or Who is Sylvia?) What an amazing show to end a fabulous season!

Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play, THE GOAT is a tragically comical play with a simple, albeit deeply disturbing premise: a married man falls in love with a goat. Once his wife finds out this sordid truth, all hell (and a lot of vases) breaks loose.

I can’t wait to see this play this weekend and not just because it marks the final show of an amazing season here at the Little Theatre, but because it is going to be awesome. You know why? Because THE GOAT is directed by the amazing and very funny Jill Turnbow and features the awesome talents of David Norum, Polly Firestone-Walker, Daniel Freeman and Anthony Hernandez – that’s why! You’ve got three chances to see this stellar cast in action: Friday at 7 pm and Saturday at 2 pm and 7 pm. Click HERE to choose your performance and purchase your tickets online. Seriously, don’t miss our final UBU show of the season, you’re going to love it!

“Meet Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, your typical Elizabethan Man: a favorite of the Queen, madly in love with a Russian Princess, fleeing an Archduchess, and waking up one fine day in Constantinople to find he has become, of all things, a woman…”

OrlandoAUDITIONS for our first Ubu’s Other Show Staged Reading of the 2015-2016 Season will take place this Sunday, June 21 from 5:30-7:30 PM. ORLANDO was written by Virginia Woolf and adapted by gifted playwright Sarah Ruhl. The staged reading will be directed Anet Carlin.
