Upcoming LALT Readings at the Los Alamos and White Rock Senior Centers

Be sure to mark your calendars for May 17 at the Los Alamos Senior Center and May 19 at the White Rock Senior Center—both at 12:30--for a free, very funny short play reading, Dead Right, by Elaine Jarvik. Starring Sally Cassil and Tom Farish and directed by Pat Beck, this engaging play centers on how a friend's tedious, grammatically incorrect obituary plunges Penny and Bill, age 60s, into a prickly discussion at the breakfast table. How could Bill read the paper when they have their own obituaries to plan? It's a touching comedy about how we hope to be remembered. This play was honored as one of only four selected out of 1300 entries by the 2008 Humana Festival of New American Plays.

The readings are part of an on-going partnership among the Senior Centers, Los Alamos Little Theatre, and playwright Robert Benjamin to bring live theater about aging in enjoyable snippets every few months to our senior community. The readings are intended not only to be entertaining, but also to spark conversation about issues relating to aging. Previous readings include I'm Herbert, by Robert Anderson; Fresh Out, Swerving, and Too Soon, by Benjamin; MusicPoemMusic, by Jarvik; and an excerpt from Not Quite Right, coauthored by Jarvik and Benjamin.

Winner will be announced and notified after the cutoff time on 4/26/17.

Starring Don Monteith as Rosencrantz, Trisha Werner as Guildenstern, Jess Cullinan as the Player, Patrick Webb as Hamlet, with Zachary Brounstein, Ian Foti-Landis, Alex L’Esperance, Alexis Perry, and Stuart Rupprecht as the Tragedians.

The funniest tragedy ever written! Two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet stumble around unaware of their scripted lives and unable to deviate from them. Acclaimed as a modern masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is a fabulously inventive tale told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

Friday & Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm April 28, 29; May 5, 6, 12 and 13. Sunday matinee 2:00 pm May 7.

Tickets available online at Brown Paper Tickets or at CB Fox in Los Alamos. Also available at the door prior to performances.

$14/Adults, $12/Students & Seniors.
