Terrace Little Theatre thanks everyone Who Came Out to the Playreading of "One Side of the Moon, and an Umbrella"

We would also like to thank everyone who came out to the play reading of Baxter Huston's play, "One Side of the Moon, and an Umbrella". It was an fun-filled evening full of humour and drama.


.............................................


TLT will be Hosting a Play Reading of "One Side of the Moon, and an Umbrella" by Baxter Huston

Be sure to check out the play reading of Baxter Huston's "One side of the Moon, and an Umbrella". The play reading will take place at the McColl Playhouse, 3625 Kalum street, at 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 31st.

This is a one-act play consisting of 5 soliloquies, and ending with an (approximately) 3 minute conclusive scene.

It is a play depicting the struggles and wounds inflicted on various, but relatively average individuals by the mere act of living in this world. It depicts the heroic nature of the human heart to be able to (but doesn't always choose to) pull triumphant spiritual growth out of the despair that the natural order of the universe is programmed to inflict on us.

It shows how a family's collective needs are seen to by the mysterious hand that could be God or could be just the mechanical nature of this world, or both.

It is a play about the triumphant re-uniting of a brutally shattered family.

A Playreading of Gerald Sibleyras's "Heroes" to be held on February 1st

Terrace Little Theatre is having a play reading of "HEROES" by Gerald Sibleyras on Saturday February 1st, 2014 at 13.00 hours in the green room at the McColl Playhouse.

In "HEROES", we meet three World War I veterans who pass their monotony-filled days in a military hospital by engaging in verbal battles of long-forgotten military campaigns, grumblings about the staff, and reflections on their lives.

Henri is afflicted by a gammy leg, Gustave suffers from agoraphobia, and Philippe passes out because of a piece of shrapnel lodged in his brain.

Their cantankerous camaraderie becomes strained when Gustave conjures up an escape plan. Looking over the cemetery to the poplars beyond, they dream of freedom. Will today be the day they finally make it to Indochina or perhaps only as far as the top of the hill?

This is a comedy-drama set on the terrace of a home for veterans in France. There are roles for three older men, and one stone dog.

Come out to this event and bring a friend. The play is being considered for our spring Festival production, so stay tune for additional information.

Play Reading of Larry Guno's Visionary Script "Bunk #7" Sees Large Turnout.

The October 6th reading of Larry Guno's emotionally charged script "Bunk #7" drew an impressive number of interested people. The play about the experiences of aboriginal people in Canadian residential schools has strong ties in this community as well as elsewhere in Canada. The message the play brings is one of courage and hope which, it is hoped, will ultimately become a theatrical production that can be used to spread its important message. It is no longer a question of whether the play will be performed, but when. Stay linked to this website for further updates.

Play Reading - "Bella Donna"

This coming Wednesday, September 29, the TLT is reading "Bella Donna" by David Copelin at the McColl Playhouse at 7pm.

This adult comedy may be produced in the new year, and we would love to have some new faces to play in this fun event. We need a young woman of 15 or 16 or someone who can play down to that age. Also needed is a young man 20 to 25 or someone who can play that age. The three other roles need to be played by older actors. All roles are dynamic and vital parts of the story. There are no small parts in this play.

The story is set in Renaissance Italy. Copelin's clever and darkly funny script about the sexual, political, and religious intrigues surrounding history's notorious Lucrezia Borgia gets a new production directed by Chris Stone. Excommunicated by her father's successor as Pope, weary of her husband's infidelities, Lucrezia finds passion with Giovanni, a young soldier she meets while both are in disguise. As war looms, the irony of unintended consequences reveals a long-buried secret that tests everyone in the play. Sharp, satiric, full of hot-blooded characters, David Copelin's "Bella Donna" dramatizes a world where religious faith takes surprising forms, lies fuel history, and gossip might as well be truth.

The play was the winner of the 2005 Fringe Festival Best Play Award.

Backstage help is needed and particularly some help with costumes. We really need help. Please come to the play reading and meet us. You will be made very welcome.

If you need any more information please contact Chris Stone at 259-635-3334.
