Ladysmith Little Theatre Season - 2018 - 2019
The Gentleman Clothier Sherri Wade, Director
Sept 27 - Oct 14
Norman Davenport feels he was born in the wrong century. As he opens a brand new clothing store, disappointed because he feels forced to cater to more current tastes, he makes a wish that changes his life – and the lives of his two loyal employees – forever.
The Gentleman Clothier is a magical tale filled with lessons for us all.
Scrooge In Rouge Mort Paul, Director
Nov 30 - Dec 16
This quick-change, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens classic is set in a Victorian music hall. The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are beset with a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of A Christmas Carol. The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and solving the problem of having no one to play Tiny Tim. Done in the style of British Music Hall, SCROOGE IN ROUGE abounds in bad puns, bawdy malapropisms, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs. A raucous holiday treat!
“Uproarious entertainment; a brilliantly constructed funhouse that works on so many levels, it is positively Pirandellian!” —Times-Picayune (New Orleans).
“It’s a romp that should become an annual tradition.” —Style Weekly (Richmond, VA).
RUMORS Stephen Lewis, Director
March 21- to April 7
At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
Stones in His Pockets Ellen Paul, Director
May 23 - June 9
A two-man show about the filming of a Hollywood epic in rural Ireland, Stones in His Pockets features a pair of film extras, Charlie and Jake, who tell the story by taking on all the roles themselves.
