Our 2013 season is over,
but there's still entertainment!
Friday, December 13th - 7:30 p.m. $50 VIP* tickets/$25 general seating tickets
Dianne Mower salutes Bonnie Raitt ... From One Redhead to Another!
A concert unlike no other . . . put the holiday craziness aside for a great evening with the fabulous vocals of Dianne Mower and her ensemble of talented local favorites!
Master of Ceremony, Colin McEnroe will lead us through this 'salute' and even join in on a song or two!
Dianne's musical emphasis is on jazz, but she also sings a wide variety of songs and is working on her fourth CD, recording the music of Dave Brubeck with Norman Johnson and Dan and Chris Brubeck. She has performed at top clubs in New York including the famous Blue Note! Bonnie's songs will be celebrated and a little holiday music will be included!
*VIP tickets include seating in the first six rows and a special post-concert reception with Dianne and her guests, courtesy of Highland Park Market and Onyx Moonshine. And a portion of your VIP tickets supports the productions of Little Theatre of Manchester!
And now, on to the season of Laughter, Love and Life!
The Little Theatre of Manchester proudly announces its
2014 season of main-stage productions!
We open in February with an encore production of Noises Off, considered by many to be one of the funniest comedies ever written. Go behind the scenes – literally – as we watch one of the most inept theater companies on Earth try to stage a show, all the while battling clashing egos, romantic entanglements, and other crises. Slamming doors, onstage and backstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
February 14-16, 20-23, 28 and March 1-2, directed by Debi Freund.
In April, LTM brings you the funny, yet heart-warming, Steel Magnolias. The play, which revolves around a tight group of southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness that underlies the antic banter of its characters. If you’ve seen the movie and you think this is the same, you’ll be in for a wonderful surprise (psst … this is better)!
April 11-13, 17-19*, 24-27*, directed by Joe Keach-Longo.
The mythical town of Almost, Maine, observed on a cold, cloudless night, will offer a heart-warming change of pace for our June production. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
June 6-8, 12-15, 20-22, directed by Mike Zizka.
In August, LTM audiences will have special hallway passes to The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, where six young people, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. Spelling Bee is a hilarious, Tony-award-winning musical centering on a quirky, yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. You'll fit right in, too!
August 8-10, 14-17, directed by Gloria Trombley.
Our November production will be the first-ever LTM staging of the classic musical, South Pacific. Based on James A. Michener's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book, Tales of the South Pacific, the play features wonderful, memorable music by Rodgers and Hammerstein, including the classic “Some Enchanted Evening.” Way ahead of its time, the play was one of the first to explore the topic of interracial romance and prejudices, but doing so with humor and great compassion. Still popular today, the play was revived on Broadway in 2008 and was a critical success, winning seven Tonys.
November 7-9, 13-16, 21-23, directed by Todd Santa Maria.
