“Fiddler On The Roof Jr” – pending CDC quarantine restrictions…

(Musical: All ages)

Book by Joseph Stein / Music by Jerry Bock / Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, Directed by Kate Carter-Cram and Steven Santos

July 24, 25, 30, & 31, 2020 at 7:30 pm, July 26, 2020 & August 1, 2020 at 2:00 pm.

This special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, “Fiddler on the Roof JR.” follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Created by Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof JR. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.  Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.

ANNOUNCING SEASON 73 (2020-2021)

The Book of Will

(Comedy/Drama; All Ages) by Lauren Gunderson

“What if all the words were lost? William Shakespeare’s been dead for three years. His closest friends and fellow actors deeply miss him and his beautiful plays. When a pirated, badly botched Hamlet (“To be or not to be, there’s the point . . .”) plays on a nearby stage, they realize Shakespeare’s lines are disappearing into the forgetful memory of time. What they need is a book – a definitive copy of his original plays, but to make one, they’ll have to battle an unscrupulous publisher, a boozy poet laureate and their own mortality. Lauren Gunderson’s look at Shakespeare’s First Folio is a lively, funny, poignant love letter to theatre and the printed word.” -Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  “THE BOOK OF WILL… unequivocally announces Gunderson as a playwright with whom to be reckoned. It is, quite frankly, one of the best plays I have ever seen. It will bring tears of both laughter and sorrow to all but the most jaded audience member’s eyes. It is, in a word, a triumph.” -Boulder Weekly (CO).

Auditions in the BLT Green Room from 2:00-5:00 pm, June 19 & 20, 2020.

A cult classic called “the funniest farce ever written!” A manic merry-go-round of actors rehearsing a British bedroom farce, a flop called Nothing’s On, complete with door slamming, intrigue on and offstage, and an errant herring. The New York Times calls it, “The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is a festival of delirium.”

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, TN, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.

Auditions in the BLT Green Room from 2:00-5:00 pm, January 9 & 10, 2021.

What happens when two sets of parents’ meet up to deal with the unruly behavior of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly?

God of Carnage won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony award for Best Play.

Take four tempestuously muddled lovers. Add six seriously bumbling theatricals rehearsing a play for the wedding of the Duke and his new warrior bride. Send them all to the Athenian woods where the fairy King & Queen are battling over a changeling boy. Add Puck, a mischievous sprite with a zeal to meddle. Sprinkle with a generous helping of fairy dust and you have A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of William Shakespeare’s most endearing and popular plays.
