Central Louisiana Community Theatre recently completed a 63rd consecutive season with an awards GALA on November 18 at Convention Hall in Downtown Alexandria.
First up in 2012 is the play, entitled Almost, Maine by John Cariani, a delightful telling of multiple love stories of a small northern town. This funny and sweet tale will take between 4 (2 men/2women) and 19 actors (9men/10women) as actors (ages 19 and up) to portray the diverse residents of Almost. The director will be holding auditions soon at the St. James Parish Hall. Additionally, we will be looking for a costumer, a set builder, and other volunteers to help bring this show to the stage February 16-26. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone 318-484-4478.
Other productions this year include Twelve Angry Jurors which follows the deliberation of a jury which must consider a case in which a young man is accused of killing his father. First presented in 1957 as 12 Angry Men, the courtroom drama has been adapted to allow for more diverse casting. The production will be presented in May 4 – 13 to bring attention to the American Bar Association’s observance of Law Day. You won’t want to miss this classic drama as it will be presented at the Hearn Stage in Downtown Alexandria.
As summer arrives CPP will bring back the musical tale, Forever Plaid, a story in song about 4 young men whose careers were cut short in a tragic automobile accident. They manage to make a comeback unlike any other on stage July 5 – 15.
In late September, a new play by a pair of young African-American writers, entitled Grandmothers, Incorporated will be presented. Four retired women stumble upon a crime boss and scheme to bring him to justice.
Tickets for each show this year will be priced at $15 for General Admission, $12 for Seniors over 60 and $7 for Students.
