Are you a fan of theater and improvisation, enjoy plays, maybe curious about acting but not ready to commit to being in a production? The Little Theatre in New London is planning to start a Community Theatre Play Group! The group will meet each month at the Theatre. The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 19th at 6 pm. They are planning to read through plays together, play improvisation games and works! The group is open to all ages!!! This group sounds like a fun time!
The Little Theatre has plans to do 2 productions for the summer season! The first is a unique blend of improvisation, audience participation, music, and script. Join the villagers of the beautiful Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and mourn the passing of one of their own, the dearly departed Flanagan. You’ll be transported to the Emerald Isle to grieve as only the Irish can. You can share tales of your own experiences and misadventures with dear old Flanagan or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall Flanagan’s life.
The Little Theatre is also hard at work adapting Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz especially for the Little Theatre stage. Join Toto as he tells his puppies a bed time story of his adventures in Oz with Dorothy. This play calls for a cast of all ages. This August, elementary and middle school students can participate in a theater workshop and learn their roles as Munchkins, flying monkeys, and more while the big kids (and adults who still act like kids) bring the other characters of the land of Oz to life!
The area is very blessed to have two amazing Theatre options with both the New London Little Theatre and the Barn Theatre in Willmar. We encourage you to get involved in a production, try out the new play group at the Little Theatre or just take in a show!!
