In 2002, Suzan-Lori Parks wrote a play a day for an entire year; in 2006, more than 15 American cities, including Seattle, Austin, Los Angeles and NYC, with over 700 theatre groups, collectively and simultaneously performed all 365 plays between November 13 through November 12, 2006. We will be performing a selection of 30 of her short plays, which explore American history, the military, politics, relationships, race, spirits, riffs on well known works, jaywalking, and an appearance by The Supremes. Suzan-Lori Parks has recently released a collection of plays written during the first 100 days of President Trump's time in office. We can't wait to bring you some of these; stay tuned!

Tickets are $10.00, and available online at brownpapertickets.com from 10/30/17, or at the door (cash or check only). UW Tacoma Students get in free with ID; brownpapertickets discount code/pw: UWT

As was our collaborative model for the previous productions, the acting company and production team of 365 Days/365 Plays is made up of UW Tacoma students and alumni and actors from the region. This company features 5 UWT undergraduate and graduate students, and 7 local actors, with a similarly combined production crew. The production designers are Nic Olson (New Muses Theatre), lighting and scenic design; Dylan Twiner, sound; Ricky German, costumes.

This and our previous collaborative productions are made possible with generous contributions of resources and funding from the University of Washington Tacoma, and resources from University of Puget Sound and Toy Boat Theatre.

ANNUAL FUND DRIVE

Dear Friend of Tacoma Little Theatre:

We are so excited for our 99th Season at Tacoma Little Theatre. Thank you for coming and laughing with us during our first show of the season, Rumors. Because of your continuing support, we’ve started the 99th Season off strong! Last year even more of our community joined us to experience Tacoma’s finest theatre. We were especially proud to win our state theatre competition and represent Washington in the American Association of Community Theatre Regional festival in Boise, Idaho with our production of Second Samuel. This year we know you will enjoy the wide spectrum of shows that we have lined up for you.

“I am very pleased with the direction of TLT. I have been a long standing season ticket holder. The entire staff have taken TLT to a new level -- consistently good plays with excellent acting, great public relations and consequently better attendance. Please keep up the excellent work!” -A TLT Season Ticket Holder

As we move towards our 100th season and our 78th year in our facility, we’ve heard how you would like to see us improve TLT. “It is time to revamp the seats. They are so uncomfortable. Need a drive to donate a chair” In the past few years you’ve seen us add an air conditioning system, improved stage and house lighting, and sound reinforcement. We take your suggestions seriously so stay tuned as our Development Director works on exciting plans celebrating our 100th year with your ideas in mind. Also, check around the corner and you’ll see that TLT has acquired the building next door, fondly named Stage Right. This has allowed us to localize our scene shop and storage facility which was previously off-site. By purchasing Stage Right, we are now saving money, staff time, and will be able to expand our educational programming in the near future.

“You have no idea how much you changed our lives!! I never thought I would hear the singing again, the laughs or see my son be willing to trust again, but you did it! Now he is so full of life again, nothing can ever tell you all how thankful we are!” -A parent of TLT’s Education Program

The demand to expand our education programming within our community is at a record high. With your support we were able to increase it by 10% with more to come in 2018. This growth matches the need to increase the number of scholarships awarded to those who might not be able to experience the joy of the Performing Arts. Your support helps TLT create future performers who will grace the stages in Pierce County. These scholarships change lives.

“We love plays and TLT has the best in our area. The quality of shows has been consistently high in recent years. You're doing a terrific job. Thank you!” -A TLT patron

Ticket sales alone will not sustain the performing arts in our community. It is only through the continued support of our community members that the arts can thrive. Your support through last season's annual fund allowed TLT to whisk you away to a misty Transylvania in Dracula and the dusty plains of the Old West in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Because of YOU, we will continue to be able to take you to new places that you’ve never dreamed of, like Whoville in Seussical. We offer a range of donation options that are listed at the bottom of this letter. You can even pledge your donation amount over a monthly or quarterly payment schedule. If you are interested in establishing a legacy gift of support through planned (estate) giving or stock transfers, please contact me directly. Remember that any amount helps us, from $1 to $10,000. TLT is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization making your donation fully tax-deductible.

If you have already donated to us this season, thank you! If you are considering donating to us now, thank you! Please fill out the bottom portion of this letter or go to www.tacomalittletheatre.com to make a donation online. To donate over the phone, you may call me personally at 253-272-2281. Having the chance to speak with you is one of the best parts of my job.

All my best,
Chris Serface
Managing Artistic Director

Neil Simon’s comic genius shines

Rumors is an uproariously hilarious comedy about lies, deceit and rumors. 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 miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Celebrate the holidays with your family in the world of Dr. Seuss!  

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Winner of the Tony Award, the Outer Critics Circle, and the Drama Desk Award as best play
 
After three years in the Peace Corps, James, a young speech therapist, joins the faculty of a school for the deaf, where he is to teach lip-reading. He meets Sarah, a school dropout, totally deaf from birth, and estranged both from the world of hearing and from those who would compromise to enter that world. Fluent in sign language, James tries, with little success, to help Sarah, but gradually the two fall in love and marry. At first their relationship is a happy and glowing one, as the gulf of silence between them seems to be bridged by their desire to understand each other's needs and feelings, but discord soon develops as Sarah becomes militant for the rights of the deaf and rejects any hint that she is being patronized and pitied.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece fills the stage with music and dance.

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

Gripping drama and intrigue that will have you thinking about things differently.

Martin McDonagh echoes the works of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm in this New York Drama Critics' Circle and Olivier Award winning script. The Pillowman is a viciously funny and seriously disturbing tale of Katurian, a fiction writer in an unnamed totalitarian state. Katurian and his brother Michael are brought in for questioning by two bulldog detectives, Tupolski and Ariel, when the content of his short stories  — which involve disturbingly gruesome tales — begin to resemble real-life murders. The Pillowman weaves between reality and storytelling; and the result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit is a spook-tacular comic classic. After a “spirited” séance goes decidedly wrong, the cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine suddenly finds himself face to face with the ghost of his deceased wife, Elvira…much to the chagrin of his current spouse, Ruth.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Roles are available for 5 women/2 men

CHARLES CONDOMINE
A novelist in his forties, Charles is bright, sophisticated, articulate, and debonair but somewhat at the mercy of his wives, past and present. His interest in spiritualism as a subject for a novel leads Charles to ask Madame Arcati to dinner and a séance. He is skeptical but becomes a believer when the ghost of his first wife appears—and stays. From then on, poor Charles is a shuttlecock between the women battling for his affections: Ruth, his living wife, and Elvira, his dead one. Charles prefers Elvira.

RUTH CONDOMINE
Charles’s second wife, Ruth is in her late 30's, early 40's. Like her husband, Ruth is witty and sophisticated, and she is quite the society matron. Ruth is a bit stuffy and a little predictable. She is convinced that Charles has lost his mind when Elvira appears, because at first she can neither see nor hear Elvira. Throughout much of the play, Ruth acts as a concerned wife, trying to restore Charles to normalcy.

ELVIRA
Elvira, the ghost of Charles’s first wife is between 25 and 30 years of age. Elvira is gray from head to toe, and only Charles can see or hear her. In life, Elvira was spirited, outgoing, wild, and carefree. In death, she is no different; she has cocktails with Genghis Khan. She does love Charles, if somewhat casually, and is jealous of Ruth. Her attempts to monopolize the attention and conversation of Charles after she reappears form the central tension of the play.

MADAME ARCATI
Madame Arcati, the local spiritualist and medium. Elderly but spry, Madame Arcati bicycles into the play wearing slightly outlandish clothes and talking to an eight-year-old contact on the other side. As everyone soon finds out, Madame Arcati is no fraud. She truly is in contact with the other world and inadvertently is the “medium” through which Elvira is called back to this one. The problem is that Madame Arcati cannot figure out how to return Elvira to the other side.

EDITH
Edith, the maid. Edith plays a tiny part in the bulk of the play but turns out to be a central character. Edith, not Charles, has the extrasensory powers that called Elvira back from the dead, and only Edith can make Elvira return.

DR. BRADMAN
A pleasant-looking middle-aged man, Dr. Bradman is a friend of the Condomines.

MRS. BRADMAN
The wife of Dr. Bradman, Mrs. Bradman is middle-aged and a bit faded.

Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its production of Rumors, by Neil Simon, and directed by Erin Chanfrau.

Once cast, RUMORS will run from Friday, September 15, 2017 to Sunday, October 1, 2017. 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
 

Chris Gorman (Female): Tense publishing lawyer trying to kick the cigarette habit; a bundle of nerves gamely trying to cope with the ever increasing stress of the situation with wisecracks, lying, and alcohol. 

Ken Gorman (Male): A lawyer fiercely protective of his client and friend, Charley; his early arrival at the party puts him at the heart of the frantic attempts to control the situation. 

Claire Ganz (Female): Lenny’s high-society, acid-tongued wife who seems to be in on the latest rumors; does her level best to keep up with the goings on. 

Lenny Ganz (Male): A short-tempered accountant with a whiplash injury; the poor, put-upon guy just isn’t having a good day, even before the party starts. 

Cookie Cusack (Female): A loopy, yet amiable, TV cooking show host, who’s having major back spasms; very quirky and often the last to grasp what is going on. 

Ernie Cusack (Male): A laid-back and clueless psychologist, comfortable in his own skin. 

Cassie Cooper (Female): A high-maintenance trophy wife, vain and insecure, convinced her husband is having at least one affair. 

Glen Cooper (Male): A self-protective, somewhat exasperated, “aspiring” state senator. 

Officer Welch (Male): No-nonsense and not easily tricked police officer; seen and heard it all

Officer Pudney (Female): Welch’s younger partner

THE DEATH OF DR. PEPPER-A MURDER MYSTERY DINNER

MAY 11-14, 2017
THURSDAY-SATURDAY AT 7:30PM
SUNDAY AT 3:00PM

Presented at The Social Bar and Grill

Tickets: $50.00 Click here to purchase

Tacoma Little Theatre invites you to join some of Tacoma’s finest actors for an evening of dinner, mystery, and murder presented at and with food by The Social Bar and Grill.

Dr. Pepper is searching for his wife.  She was supposed to meet him at the mystery event.  He asks everyone if they’ve seen her and leaves her messages with audience members.  Obviously, he is very worried.  He no sooner leaves than Mrs. Pepper arrives.  And arrives. And arrives.  Three women claim to be Mrs. Pepper.  It would be very easy to identify the real one -- if only Dr. Pepper was still alive to tell us.  Double (or is it triple?) jeopardy may allow a murderess to get away with murder.

Dinner includes: Appetizer, Salad, Main Entrée (Meat, Chicken, Vegetarian/Gluten Free) & Dessert.  Coffee, Tea, Water and Soda are included, and alcohol is available for purchase at the bar or from your server.

THE DEATH OF DR. PEPPER will run May 11-14, 2017.  Thursday-Saturday performances will begin at 7:30pm, and the Sunday performance will begin at 3:00pm.  The event is held at The Social Bar and Grill, 1715 Dock Street, Tacoma, WA.  RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.

Tickets are $50.00 per person (includes dinner and show) and may be purchased by clicking here, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.

SECOND SAMUEL - FESTIVAL PERFORMANCE

TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 2017 AT 7:30PM
All Tickets: $10.00

Click here for tickets

Tacoma Little Theatre is honored to be representing Washington State at the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) Regional Festival in Boise, Idaho with their performance of last season’s hit, Second Samuel, written by Pamela Parker, and directed by Chris Serface.

It was a simpler time in the late 1940’s, especially in South Georgia in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. The Great Depression was quickly fading into memory, the war had been won, and "Give 'em Hell Harry" was still president. Folks in Second Samuel were ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this was the summer Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep dark secrets were about to be revealed. Nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down.  Would anything ever be normal again?

This production features Aaron Mohs-Hale (B Flat), Kerry Bringman (Frisky), Jermaine Lindsay (US), Bob Yount (Mansel), Tom Birkeland (Mr. Mozel), Diana George (Omaha), Jill Heinecke (Jimmy Deeanne), Neicie Packer (Marcela), Megan Saunders (Ruby), Michael Dresdner (Doc), and Marc Carvajal (June).

SECOND SAMUEL will present a special public performance prior to the festival, on Tuesday, March 28th at 7:30pm.    

Tickets are $10.00 per seat for these special performances and they will be held at Tacoma Little Theatre. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre.com, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
