  • LALT presents musical comedy

    Love is confusing. Love is an endless roller coaster of emotions, assumptions, heart palpitations, tears, sacrifices, and experiences.
    Sometimes love brings marriage and children. Sometimes love brings lives and families that are eventually destroyed.
    The question is, why do we go through it all? What do we really think about the person we are dating? If we could say anything to that person without consequence, what would it be?
    These thoughts about love, marriage, intimacy, becoming elderly and more are presented in the musical comedy, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.”
    It will be presented at Los Alamos Little Theatre starting Friday.
    Written by Joe DiPietro with music by Jimmy Roberts, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” is a series of 20 vignettes about relationships.
    “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” opened in 1996 on Broadway and by 2008 played a total of 20 previews and 5,003 regular performances, making it the second longest-running musical in Off-Broadway history.

    She has big plans for her life, but they are all changed when she meets Jimmy Smith (played by Charlie Herrmann).

  • 'Race to Nowhere' second showing

    In March, Los Alamos High School senior Tessa Snyder doubled her goal of wanting 100 people to attend the film “Race to Nowhere.”
    Many members of the community who were unable to attend the March showing will get a chance on Thursday for a second viewing. The show will be 6:30 p.m. Thursday at UNM-LA’s Jeanette Wallace Lecture Hall.
    A follow up event is planned to discuss community changes for Los Alamos. “The whole purpose of the event was to get the engine started, now we’ll be able to get the wheels rolling,” Snyder said.

  • Mountain School kids act out unique version of 'Cinderella'

    Five classes of first and second grade students performed the musical “Disney’s Cinderella Kids,” last week in the Mountain School gym.
    Each student had a special role whether that was Cinderella, narrator, solo singer, a wheel of the carriage, or something else. There were six students that acted as Cinderella.
    There were about 100 guests that came to watch, including all the other grades and teachers. Families and teachers all worked together to help the students perform this “happily-ever-after” tale.
    The art teachers, Lorri McInroy and Stephanie Rittner, helped make props and backdrops, the parents and grandparents helped with costumes and hanging the backdrops.
    The teachers helped with logistics, memorizing lines and music.
    The students learned about working together, singing (pitch, high/low and fast/slow), what cue lines are, moving, acting, portraying emotions, using props, solo singing and staying focused.
    The students said they loved working on and performing ‘Disney’s Cinderella Kids!’ They were so excited and had a ton of fun.
