Join us for an open reading of Los Alamos Little Theatre’s September production, SILENT SKY, by Lauren Gunderson. The reading begins at 7 PM Tuesday, May 8, in the Green Room of the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar Street.

Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity. Continue reading
