L/A Community Little Theatre Presents "Love Letters"
- August 31, 2021
The L/A Community Little Theater is excited to resume live productions as it presents A. R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” with the opening night performance on Thursday, September 16.
Through the time-honored tradition of letter writing, audiences meet Andy and Melissa and follow their love affair from second grade through college, as they grow apart and marry others, and all while maintaining a relationship across the miles. Spanning the years 1937 - 1984, this story will resonate with those who remember the Great Depression, WWII, the Cold War Years and the crazy '60's and '70's. Gurney’s performance piece is considered a rite of passage for most acting couples and was nominated in 1990 for a Pulitzer Prize in Drama.
The production will feature five different casts over two weekends, with Pat Phillips and Mark Hazard performing on the 16th and the 25th at 7:30 p.m.; Jackie Oliveri and Chip Morrison on the 17th and 23rd at 7:30 p.m.; Kay Warren and Jason Pelletier on the 18th at both 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; Lucy Poland and Ray Fletcher on the 19th and 26th at 2:00 p.m.; and Emily Flynn and Sean Wallace on the 24th at 7:30 p.m. and the 25th at 2:00 p.m.
Director Jackie McDonald’s crew includes Danny Gay, assistant director; Dane Kane, stage manager; Josie French, publicity; Dan Burgess & Brandon Chaloux, set; Nicole Frydrych, producer; Matt Conklin, lighting design; and Noah Keneborus, sound design.
All performances will be held at the Great Falls Performing Arts Center at 30 Academy Street in Auburn on September 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. and September 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $12 for students, can be purchased online at www.laclt.com, by calling the Box Office at 783-0958, or at the door.
