Auditions set for “Sleuth”

Posted on

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to perform “Lend Me a Tenor” this season. We have instead decided to perform a show that has never been done before at Little Theater.
We will be holding auditions for “Sleuth” this coming Tuesday, August 1 at 7:00 pm. The show is a very small cast of 3 men, aged 21-60+, all with rather large roles. If interested, you can likely find the 1972 movie version with Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.
We need to get the word out about these auditions so please like and share this with your friends!
Thanks, and we hope to see you there!

Auditions for “Don’t Drink the Water” March 9 and 10

Posted on Updated on

Try-outs for “Don’t Drink the Water” are coming up! Monday, March 9th and Tuesday, March 10th, at 7 pm, at the Theatre. There are parts of 4 women and 6 men, and 6 parts that can be men or women. Some of them are younger adults, others are older–we need an old priest, a heavy-set sultan, a classy ambassador, and so on. There will need to be some interesting accents too–New Jersey accents, Russian accents, even Arabian accents. (There are only adult parts, no parts for kids, sorry guys!) What do you need for try-outs, you might ask? Everyone needs to come prepared to tell 3 jokes, one of them needs to be a story. (I want to see how each actor handles comedy and delivery.) We will also do some reading together to match up characters. You will not need to come to both nights, but you are welcome. LTB veterans and new comers–come make this awesome!!!!
