-A A +A

Los Alamos Little Theatre invites interested patrons  and prospective actors to attend a play reading at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Green Room at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar St.

The evening’s reading will feature the eight short plays to be performed by LALT in May. The plays were selected from 22 scripts submitted by New Mexico playwrights.

This production format of short plays provides multiple opportunities for persons wishing to gain on-stage experience and offers a variety of roles and concepts to consider.

Some of the directors who have chosen the plays will be at the reading and can share their thoughts that went into the selections.

This is the sixth time LALT has produced the 8x10 play format. Auditions will be held 1-3 p.m.  March 2, and 5-7 p.m. March 3.

The plays to be performed in May include “A Life,” by Gary Dontzig, ‘DWI,” by Dale Dunn, “Endless Questions,” by Mimi Adams, “For Lack of a Tail,” by John Cullinan, “Patient,” by Caroline Evarts, “Red Licorice,” by John Gustafson, and “Treason,” by Robert Benjamin.

The eighth play is still being determined.

Directors for the 8x10s are John Cullinan, Trish Ebbert, Elisa Enriquez, Ian Foti-Landis, Iain May, Ken Milder, and Patrick Webb.
