LALT announces 2014-15 season

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Little Theatre announces a slate of five shows for its 2014-15 season.
“Tower of Magic,” by local playwright Tess Light, explores the search for one’s true self amidst the chaos of an idiosyncratic family — a woman with near-magical creative talents, an obsessed ornithologist, a compulsive mezzo-soprano, a murderous chef, a mostly mute savant, a twinned linguist, and just to stir the pot a visitor who is a, yawn, civil engineer.
“And Then There Were None,” by the ever-popular Agatha Christie, in which ten guilty strangers, trapped on an island, are one by one accused of murder and die. Agatha Christie last graced the LALT stage in the 2010-11 season with “Go Back for Murder.”
“Murdered to Death,” by Peter Gordon, turns Agatha Christie on her head in a spoof led by the inept Inspector Pratt. The audience may be left wondering if laughter is the murderer.
In the realm of classics, “Mr. Roberts,” by Thomas Leggen and Joshua Logan, returns to the LALT stage after a 60-year span (last performed in the 1953-54 season). Set in World War II, this is a comedic tale of a group of American sailors aboard a Navy cargo vessel in the Pacific, the skipper they all hate and the lieutenant they all respect.
In collaboration with the Dixon Community Players, LALT will perform “Avenue Q,” an R-rated musical that addresses the anxieties experienced upon entering adulthood. The play is performed with a combination of live actors and puppets — think Sesame Street for adults!
Tickets for the 2014-15 season are $14 general admission and $12 students and seniors.
LALT productions are in the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar St.  More information on LALT, its history and its upcoming season is available at lalt.org.
