The Los Alamos Little Theatre is pleased to announce its 2015-16 season.
Harvey, by Mary Chase
This 1944 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which falls into the “classic” category, tells the story of Elwood Dowd, who believes he is accompanied by an invisible, human-sized rabbit, much to the embarrassment of his family. Directed by Gwen Lewis.
LALT’s fifth presentation of this format of eight short plays provides opportunities for wanna-be directors and actors to get their feet wet and for established ones to join the plunge. The scripts (still being selected) feature mostly local playwrights and the evening promises to have something for everyone.
Once A Ponzi Time, by Joe Foust
Enter the world of madcap finances as an investment scheme built of cards is about to tumble down. Think Bernie Madoff meets the Marx Brothers. Directed by Jim Sicilian.
The Consequence of Impression, by Deborah Magid
Sometimes-local playwright Deborah Magid tells the story of French painter Berthe Morisot, who was the muse and subject of many paintings by French Impressionist Edouard Manet — and ended up marrying his brother. Directed by Ken Milder.
Steel Magnolias, by Robert Harling
Six women hold center in this look at friendships and disputes that evolve through time, using humor and conversation to deal with serious issues. Set in Louisiana, this strong play gained greater notoriety in 1989 when it came out as a movie with a powerful female cast. Directed by Laurie Tomlinson.
The Los Alamos Little Theatre manages and performs at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar St. Persons interested in learning more about LALT can attend the annual meeting June 14 or visit www.lalt.org.
