8x10s: 7 Come 11 Continues Through Jan. 21

Los Alamos Little Theatre’s evening of eight short plays continues through Jan. 21 with shows 7:30 pm Friday and Saturday and a 2 pm matinee Sunday, Jan. 15.
A review from the first weekend’s performance appeared in the Los Alamos Daily Post: https://ladailypost.com/dont-miss-lalts-eight-great-short-plays-8×10-7-come-11/
Situations presented in the plays include the modern hell known as a dinner party, doing a favor for a stranger that reveals a lost passion, the importance of choosing the correct tie, barbecuing shrimp amidst alien abduction, and riding a train along a path of quantum uncertainty.
The plays in the show, in order, are:
 — An Unusual Bird written by Vicki Meagher and directed by Jazmine Torres
 — Alphabet Soup written by John Gustafson and directed by Terry Beery
 — Aliens written by Stephanie Karr and Mark Watts and directed by Fred Berl
 — Gun Play written by Dale Dunn and directed by Jazmine Torres
 — All Aboard! written by Michael Burgan and directed by Kelly Dolejsi
 — Necktie written by Cunningham North and directed by Gloria Galassi
 — Tenth Circle of Hell written by Fred Berl
 — Sleeping Through Armageddon written by Tess Light and directed by Seona Zimmerman
Gun Play deals with themes of domestic violence and is intense, so it may not be appropriate for younger audience members or those for whom the subject might be upsetting.
Tickets — $20 General Admission and $15 for Seniors or Students — are available online at Event Brite and also may be purchased at the door.

Play Reading and Auditions for January’s 8x10s

Play Reading — 8x10s: 7 Come 11
Los Alamos Little Theatre will host a reading of eight short plays at 7 pm, Tuesday, Oct. 4, in the Green Room at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar Drive.
The eight plays, written by local playwrights, will be performed by LALT in January 2023.
The short play format is a great opportunity for people who are interested in trying out community theatre or who maybe enjoyed theatre in high school or college and are looking to get back into it. The time commitment for line memorization and rehearsals is less than that required for a full-length play. And there are 24 available roles among the eight plays, so lots of opportunity. Tell a friend!!
The Oct. 4 reading is a chance to get familiar with the plays and consider parts that might be of interest. Or, just attend and enjoy the reading.
Auditions for the plays will be held at 7 pm Oct. 10 and Oct. 12 at the Performing Arts Center.
Scripts are available for perusal at the Mesa and White Rock public libraries. Access to a Google folder with the scripts can be obtained by sending an email to producer John Gustafson at johngus@cybermesa.com
The plays to be read and performed are:
Aliens, written by Stephanie Karr and Mark Watts, directed by Fred Berl
All Aboard!, written by Michael Burgan and directed by Kelly Dolejsi
Alphabet Soup, written by John Gustafson and directed by Terry Beery
An Unusual Bird, written by Vicky Meagher and directed by Jazmine Torres
Gun Play, written by Dale Dunn and directed by Valerie Lawdensky and Jazmine Torres
Necktie, written by Cunningham North and directed by Beth Harrison
Sleeping Through Armageddon, written by Tess Light and directed by Seona Zimmermann
The Tenth Circle of Hell, written by Fred Berl and directed by Megan Pimentel

Clue: Reading and Auditions!

The Los Alamos Little Theatre is proud to present Clue for our November show. We will be having a reading of the script on Monday, August 15, at 6 p.m., in the green room of the PAC. People interested in being involved in the show are welcome to attend. The director will be available for questions once the reading is done. All are welcome!
Auditions for Clue will be Tuesday, Aug. 16 and Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 6-8 p.m., and by appointment. Please contact Wendy Caldwell Lanchier to schedule an alternate audition time (wendykcaldwell@gmail.com). Generally the director likes to end promptly; however, because this show may be very popular, if you arrive before 7:59 p.m. you will be allowed to audition, even if the line is long. Arriving at 6 is preferred for this reason.
Note: The director is aware that there may be cast overlap between Clue and Rocky Horror Picture Show. Please do not be deterred from auditioning. We are working to accommodate each other’s schedules.
