Los Alamos Little Theatre’s 75th season kicks off on Friday, September 14th. We begin at 7 PM with a special 75th anniversary celebration, featuring a presentation from the Los Alamos County Council and a recognition of the many hands and hearts who have made your community theatre possible for the past three-quarters of a century. Then, join us for opening night of our first production of the season, Silent Sky, starting at 7:30. Finally, stick around after the performance to meet and greet with the players and have some celebratory cake. Doors to the theatre open at 6:30 PM for this special event.
Los Alamos Little Theatre will host a play reading for Murder at the Lone Elm by Miles Ledoux at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 18. The reading, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Green Room of the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar Street. Murder at the Lone Elm will be performed by LALT in January 2019, the third show in LALT’s 75th Anniversary Season.
The play is an interactive murder mystery — meaning that the audience will engage in figuring out whodunnit by asking questions of the characters at different points in the play. This means the actors will need to be able to engage spontaneously with the audience while continuing to advance the plot line. Should be fun! The play has roles for 10 people, five men and five women. The play reading is a chance for people to gain familiarity with the script and its characters, especially if they are considering auditioning for a role. It also is a chance for people who may just want to sit back and listen as a story unfolds through the voices of others.
Silent Sky opens this weekend, Friday Sept 14 and runs through Sept 29.
Based on the true story and science of early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory, Silent Sky explores the life of astronomer Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own, working alongside Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place.
“Lauren Gunderson’s luminously beautiful play Silent Sky is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line: Heavenly.” — Atlanta Journal–Constitution

Come and help us get the Performing Arts Center ready for LALT’s 75th Anniversary Season!
LALT will hold its second and final summer work party on Saturday August 25, starting at 10am. Work will be focused on the building. Tasks will include organizing and de-cluttering the costume, green, and prop rooms. We will also address carpentry and maintenance tasks. Lunch will be provided.
We have the tools, supplies and task list. All we need is you!
This over-the-top farce is a non-stop romp of confusion, miscommunication and hilarity as an anniversary party goes awry when the host shoots himself, his wife goes missing, and the help is nowhere to be found.
