Swing in the New Year with the Devil, Daniel Webster and Los Alamos Little Theatre.The Los Alamos Little Theatre (LALT) will hold its annual New Year’s Eve party Monday. For the last 36 years at least, LALT has faithfully held a party to ring in the New Year. The theatre was actually founded along with the start of Los Alamos and the Manhattan Project, back in 1943. In fact, LALT is the oldest community organization in Los Alamos, performing initially in such locations as Fuller Lodge and the Don Juan Playhouse, and only from 1971 on in its current Los Alamos location of the Performing Arts Center (PAC), 1670 Nectar St., a building that originally served as the 1940s Army cafeteria and now marks a stop on the Los Alamos historical walking tour.From its modest beginnings in 1943, the theatre has graced Los Alamos with both classic and cutting-edge comedy, drama and even musicale. During its first year, the theater presented three shows, one of which was the Pulitzer Prize-winning Kaufman and Hart comedy “You Can’t Take It with You.” The next year saw the farce, “Arsenic and Old Lace,” only three years after it debuted on Broadway.
