Los Alamos Little Theatre
Los Alamos Little Theatre will host a reading of eight short plays at 7 pm, Tuesday, Oct. 4, in the Green Room at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar Drive.
The eight plays, written by local playwrights, will be performed by LALT in January 2023.
The short play format is a great opportunity for people who are interested in trying out community theatre or who maybe enjoyed theatre in high school or college and are looking to get back into it. The time commitment for line memorization and rehearsals is less than that required for a full-length play. And there are 24 available roles among the eight plays, so lots of opportunity.
The Oct. 4 reading is a chance to get familiar with the plays and consider parts that might be of interest. Or, just attend and enjoy the reading.
Auditions for the plays will be held at 7 pm Oct. 10 and Oct. 12 at the Performing Arts Center.
Scripts are available for perusal at the Mesa and White Rock public libraries. Access to a Google folder with the scripts can be obtained by sending an email to producer John Gustafson at firstname.lastname@example.org
