LALT launches Summer Youth Theatre Program!!

Los Alamos Little Theatre is proud to offer two brand new summer camp productions. Join us this summer as we Act, Sing and Dance our way through two camps dedicated to capturing the hearts and minds of students, and creating a life long love of the performing arts.  The first camp will run June 20th through July 1st targeted at students aging 9-14.  Each day will focus on an intensive skill building workshop and rehearsal period in which young performers will have a chance to hone their skills and learn how a show operates top to bottom.  The second camp will run August 1st through August 12 and will target older students aged 13-18, with a heavy emphasis on creating a polished and preparatory performance for further theatrical opportunities including resume building.

LALT 2016-17 Season Announced

September 2016
Not Quite Right by Elaine Jarvik and Robert Benjamin. Directed by Dennis Powell.
Not Quite Right, an upbeat and humorous family drama, features a misshapen pot, a marathon dance and a three a.m. mêlée over “what’s enough?” Three couples grapple with dueling expectations in the wee hours of the morning when everything seems, well, not quite right.

November 2016
The 1940s Radio Hour by Walton Jones. Directed by Laurie Tomlinson; Musical Director Gretchen Amstutz.
This play captures the spirit of the 1940s when the world was at war and pop music meant “Strike Up the Band” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” The radio calvcade’s harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.

January 2017
Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal. Directed by Ken Milder.
This unauthorized parody follows the familiar characters of the Peanuts comic strip, now teenagers, as they deal with very difficult issues confronting young adults, including drug use, suicide, eating disorders — and the loss of a beloved dog to rabies. A dark comedy, the play moves through increasingly harrowing events to an ending both hopeful and haunting.

March 2017
The Other Place by Sharr White. Directed by Gwen Lewis.
This compelling drama centers on Juliana Smithton, a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.

May 2017
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard. Directed by John Cullinan.
Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, the Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads the two characters to a tragic but inevitable end. Brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet, who enact fragments of the original play’s scenes, add to the bewilderment of the two protagonists, who voice their confusion at the progress of events occurring onstage without them in Hamlet.

Steel Magnolias Cast

Director Laurie Tomlinson and producer Gretchen Amstutz have announced the cast for the Los Alamos Little Theater’s May production of Steel Magnolias. The six women cast are Dianne Wilburn, Holly Robinson, Carolyn Conner, Jacinta Lestone, Trisha Werner, and Andi Bishofberger. The play will have six evening performances — May 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, and 21 — and two matinees — May 8 and 9.
