Join LCT for a staged reading of Doubt, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, principal of a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects Father Flynn, a beloved and progressive teacher, of improper relations with one of the male students. This is a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty… and doubt.
September 22-23, October 6-7 and October 13-14.
Welcome to Wally’s Café for LCT’s 2017 Dinner Theater! This very touching comedy is about Wally and his wife Louise, who buy a café in 1940 on the wrong side of the road that goes to Las Vegas, and their one waitress, Janet, who arrives as their first customer, a starstruck Midwestern girl hitchhiking her way to Hollywood. As the next forty years go by, we see their hopes, dreams, disappointments and achievements. This dinner theater production of Wally’s Café will feature a menu of days gone by, including Wally’s famous pot roast! Make your reservations now!
Please join LCT as we celebrate the holidays with this one-act play and other holiday festivities. The Ho Ho Hotline has been installed in a retirement home so that children can talk to Santa or Mrs. Claus. Meanwhile, young Jensie has broken into the phone company’s database to find the address and she comes in search of Santa Claus. Instead, she finds Aaron Lefkowitz who, despite being Jewish, insists he is Santa Lefkowitz because “who else would work on Christmas?” In the short time these two spend together, an old man’s lost imagination is rekindled and a unique humor bridges a gap of many years. The audience will laugh and cry and live with a very special pair who find each other at this most special season of the year.
Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who came to see “An Implausible Claus” and the fun variety show and sing-long that followed! We’re grateful to Santa for making an appearance, to everyone who brought donations for the local food bank, and to all the bakers who provided refreshments!
It’s now 2018 and we’re gearing up for our first event, a staged reading of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “’Night, Mother” by Marsha Norman. The show, directed by Mike Sewall, features Sarah A. M. Barthel and Anne Ramsey. If you saw the staged reading of “Doubt” last summer, you’ll know how amazing a staged reading can be when a play is pared down to the powerful words of the author and the talented interpretation of the actors. Please note that “’Night, Mother” addresses adult themes (including suicide) and is not appropriate for children. It will be performed at Stone Pine Hall, 210 South H St., on Sat., Jan. 13, at 7:30 pm, and on Sun., Jan. 14, at 2:00 pm.
We’ll also be holding auditions for our next show, “Good People,” a comedic drama by David Lindsay-Abaire, on Sun., Jan. 14, and Tue., Jan. 16, at 7:00 pm at Stone Pine Hall, 210 South H St. The show will be directed by Larry McLellan.
Please contact LCT at 735-ACT1 (735-2281) for further information about “’Night, Mother” or “Good People.”
