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
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

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 ( 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.
