Los Alamos Little Theatre Shows for this season are:
September 2017: Communicating Doors, by Alan Ayckbourn,
directed by Holly Robinson
A London sex specialist from the future stumbles into a murder plot that sends her, compliments of a unique set of hotel doors, traveling back in time. She and two women who were murdered in 1998 and 1978 race back and forth in time trying to rewrite history and prevent their own violent ends.
November 2017: [title of show], a one act musical by Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell,
directed by Tim Orcutt
The show chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and follows the struggles of the author and composer/lyricist and their two actress friends during the initial brief (three-week) creative period, along with subsequent events leading up to the show’s off-broadway and broadway productions.
January 2018: GOD OF CARNAGE, by Yasmina Reza, directed by Paul Lewis
A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.
March 2018: Secondary Cause of Death, by Peter Gordon, directed by Linda Taylor
Inspector Pratt arrives at Bagshot House with grim news for Colonel Craddock, but that’s just the beginning. Who is the strange Polish Count? Is Henrietta really an army Captain? How does the eccentric thespian, Longfellow fit in to the equation? These are just some of the characters who make Pratt’s return a chaotic nightmare as the bodies pile higher and higher.
May 2018: The Dining Room, by A. R. Gurney, directed by Cindy Hines
The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. The actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters.
September 2018: The Rocky Horror Show, a musical by Richard O’Brien, directed by Deborah Magid, musical director Gretchen Amstutz
Before the movie there was the stage show. A campy tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s to early 1970s, this musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple caught in a rainstorm who go to the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank N. Furter, on the evening of the unveiling of his new creation, an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky.
