Take a look at the Lake Wales Little Theatre’s 37th season below.
Princess Whatsername (Children’s Theatre) September 19 – 28, 2014
The story begins in the Misty Forest, where a girl is sleeping all alone. But when she wakes, nothing looks familiar to her. She can’t remember anything – not where she’s from, how she got here or even her own name! She embarks on a journey to discover her identity and meets several fairy-tale characters along the way – Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella and Rapunzel to name a few. A rocking musical score adds even more fun to new takes on the stories everyone loves.
It’s A Wonderful Life (Radio Play) November 7 – 23, 2014
This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.
Simply, Divided January 9 – 25, 2015 (special performance January 22)
Ever since the Toyota truck plant opened in Mobile, the men of Simply, Alabama have been packing up and moving away by the hundreds. No one is more alarmed by this trend than the women who spend their days at the Simply Delicious Diner. The four friends spend much of their time in the diner complaining about their failed love lives, past and present, and how the quaint town of Simply will be able to survive without good ‘breeding stock.’ With plenty of verbal jousting, surprising plot twists and a sprinkling of quirky supporting characters, Simply, Divided feels like spending an evening with old friends. Just old friends who want to kill each other.
Squabbles March 13 – 29, 2015
Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not so happy Abe Dreyfus, Jerry’s curmudgeon of a father-in-law. Abe is a funny guy to the audience, not to Jerry. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry’s mother Mildred loses her house in a fire and needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can’t stand each other. This play is one hilarious confrontation after another until the heartwarming finale in which the oldsters discover that, really, each is not so bad.
The Election (Teen Theatre) June 12 – 21, 2015
After an embattled student body president resigns in disgrace, Mark Davenport figures he will cruise to victory in the special election. After all, his only opponent is nerdy Christy Martin, who wants to eliminate football. But when a mysterious Super PAC gives her an unlimited budget, things start to get very ugly. Mark must face total annihilation or accept the services of a slick professional campaign manager with questionable ethics and a million-dollar Super PAC of his own. A hilarious and timely satire on the contemporary political scene
