Step into the spotlight

Grab your rodeo gear, whiskey bottle and siren-red dress!  The Los Alamos Little Theatre is hosting auditions for its September production of the Sam Shepard one-act dramedy “Fool for Love.”

LALT veteran Corey New will direct the play and former LALT president Jennifer Wadsack will produce it.  

By day, director Corey New makes “people’s computer problems go away.” Similar to Shepard, New also writes, acts and directs. LALT audiences remember New as the tea-sipping, crumpet-eating Algernon Moncrieff in May 2008’s “The Importance of Being Earnest.” But New began his LALT career by directing “The Balcony Scene,” (2000) and “Barefoot in the Park,” (2001).

New has even directed his own plays for the Little Theatre: “Dweller in the Ravine: A Love Story” and “My Better Half,” (both in 2003). In addition to his current directorial pursuits, New is busy at work on a screenplay.    

Shepard directed the initial theatrical production of “Fool for Love” in 1983, but many know him better as a movie star. Perhaps you caught sight of Sam Shepard right here in Los Alamos during the December 2007 filming of “Brothers.”
