NEWS & NOTICES FROM THE ILION LITTLE THEATRE
The Little Theatre will hold auditions for the comedy Last Chance Romance – Monday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, December 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the theatre.
Written by Sam Bobrick and directed by Suzanne Rodio, Last Chance Romance tells the story of Myra Witzer, a strong willed woman in her late thirties, determined to get married at any cost. Leonard Shank, an unassuming man in his early forties is the guy she goes after and gets, much against his will. After several months of married life, Myra realizes that the chase excited her more than the capture and wants out. On the other hand, Leonard, who at the beginning wanted no part of the marriage to Myra, now wants to stay married to her more than anything.
Three males, four females and one gender non-specific role, ranging in ages from 30s to 80s, are sought for a variety of roles:
Some roles may be doubled, meaning performers may play more than one character in final performances. Actors will be asked to read scenes from the play during auditions. Crew members to work backstage and run tech such as lights and sound are also sought and can email their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
The performance dates for Last Chance Romance will be February 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, and 11. Last Chance Romance continues the Little Theatre’s 2017-2018 production season.
The Ilion Little Theatre is located at 13 Remington Ave in the Village of Ilion, directly behind Remington Arms.
A tradition still upheld many decades later is the social aspect of the Ilion Little Theatre. While the organization continues to produce shows for the general public throughout the year, the organization's members meet once a month to socialize at a pot luck dinner at the theatre.
Each dinner meeting is held the third Thursday of the month (unless pre-empted by a scheduled performance), every month, from September through May.
General organization business is conducted during these meetings, but both current members and those interested in joining are invited to attend.
The next monthly dinner meeting of the "Ilion Little Theatre" is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, December 14 at 6:30 pm at the theatre (also referred to as "The Stables"), located at 13 Remington Ave, behind Remington Arms.
A social period (BYOB) will be held from 6:30 to 7:00 pm followed by dinner and those attending are asked to please bring a dish to share.
The date is subject to change.
