Mark your calendars today for LCC Theatre’s exciting season full of insights and laughs, timeliness and tenderness.
Isaac’s Eye by Lucas Hnath, directed by Andy Callis, running October 6-8 and 13-14 in the Black Box Theatre. Isaac Newton is center stage in this creative collision of intelligence and intuition, dreams and desires, exploring powerful visions and the lengths competing scientists will go to achieve them.
Sense and Sensibility by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen, directed by Mary Job running November 10-12 and 17-19 in the Black Box Theatre. A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable.
All Good Things Must Begin – Climate Change Theatre Action, part of the global Climate Change Theatre Action festival, produced by Melissa Kaplan running one-night only at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1. The evening will feature short climate-themed plays by playwrights from around the world, poetry, displays and special presentations.
The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse, directed by Black Bowen, running February 23-25 and March 1-2 in the Black Box Theatre. Absurd assumptions abound in this wickedly funny satire as a well-meaning troupe scramble to create an elementary school pageant that celebrates both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month.
My Emperor’s New Clothes by Larry Shue, a musical play for children from a story by Hans Christian Anderson, directed by Paige Tufford, running April 5-6 and 12-13 in Dart Auditorium. A colorful, brightly comic and truly delightful treat for young audiences. The playwright has transformed the famous original children’s story into a fresh and lively theatre piece filled with funny lines, hummable songs and fast-paced action.
