Terrace Little Theatre is Sending Out a Casting Call!!!

Baxter Houston is seeking actors for his original play and proposed festival entry "One Side of the Moon and an Umbrella". The festival takes place in Prince Rupert May 26-29th, 2016.

Summary:
It is a play about the reunification of a family, whose lives have been impacted by religion.

Kayla is in her 1st year at university, but falls prey to the seductive call of Peter, a demented and dying old religionist. Her father, Gilbert hires a private eye, Andy to surreptitiously watch over her. In the course of his employment Andy himself falls prey to Peter's seductive cult teachings and finds himself caught between his new-found faith and his, at best dubious moral conscience. Gilbert, Kayla, and Andy know nothing of the strings of history that bind them, or of the strings of history which connect them to the grieving woman, Dorothy who brings them all together.

Roles available:

Dorothy: A 42 year, unmarried a grade school teacher. A kind woman of gentle faith. Forced at 15 to hide her pregnancy and surrender her child, which left her scarred, permanently sad, lonely, and grief-stricken.

Gilbert: A 42 year old businessman; a man of gentle faith and a good father. Concerned about his daughter, he hired a private eye to assure himself of her safety.

Andy: A 28 year old man. Born an orphan, raised street-wise, lives and functions in the morally grey world on the underbelly of society. Falls just short of being an out-right con-artist. Deeply wounded soul. Faithless, though longs for belief.

If you interested in being involved in this project please contact BAXTER HOUSTON at retxab09@gmail.com or contact TLT at info@mytlt.ca.

Terrace Little Theatre Honours Debbie Haynes with a Celebration June 26th!!!

Terrace Little Theatre saw a turn-out for member Debbie Haynes that included not only TLT friends, but friends from her work and others from the community.

There was much reminiscing of her time with the society as well as her many contributions to the Terrace community as a whole. Debbie's enthusiasm and talent will forever leave a lasting impression on those in the TLT and the community. It is a blessing when a member makes such an impact, and potentially even more of an impact when that member leaves to pursue their dream, taking them to another community.

In addition to her honours, a slideshow of Debbie's many acting roles and her activity with the society was created by fellow member Chris Stone, one who has directed her often as well as enjoyed her abilities backstage. Perhaps the highlight of the evening was a musical tribute/roast of Debbie's talent and personality by TLT members Robin Hollett and James Powell, covering her history with the Terrace Little Theatre.

It has been a privilege to have her in our society, and we know, wherever she finds herself, she will be bringing her warm personality and valuable talent to whatever she does. While she is moving away, she has stated that she will not be a stranger. Visit often, Debbie, we miss you already.


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






Terrace Little Theatre Honours a Long-time Member with a Celebration June 26th!!!

Terrace Little Theatre invites you to a celebration to send off one of our long-time members, Debbie Haynes, before she leaves the Terrace community.

With numerous acting roles to her credit, Debbie has also been the vice president of the TLT, along with other executive portfolios. In addition to all that, Debbie has also worked various roles backstage. Her talent and experience has served her, and the society, well in the time she has been with the Terrace Little Theatre. You're contributions have been invaluable, thank you so much!

The celebration will take place at the McColl Playhouse, 3625 Kalum street, at 7:00pm Friday, June 26th. The event will be BYOB, and bring an appie to share.

TLT Life Member Passes Away

Ken Morton, a TLT Life Member who moved to White Rock a number of years ago, passed away earlier this month. Please find below the article about him that his new club, the White Rock Players, wrote about him.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Morton. Ken was a long time member of the White Rock Players' Club, having been an actor, director, producer, president and Theatre BC zone rep. He had a lifelong passion for theatre.

After arriving in Canada he immediately became a member of the Terrace Little Theatre in1969, and remained actively involved with them until 1992. Prior to his arrival in Canada, Ken was directly active with various community theatre groups in Austria, Germany and England as an actor/director and club member with responsibilities for organization including the office of President. While with the British Forces overseas he was responsible for promoting theatre on several Army bases outside of England. He organized workshops and fostered participation in festivals.

In his early days in Terrace he was elected as zone chair of the Skeena Zone in what was then B.C.D.A. and now is Theatre BC. He encouraged groups in the area to become members and promoted Zone festivals. He served on the advisory committee which planned the then new R.E.M Lee Theatre in Terrace built by the local school board. As the first event to be held in the new building, it was decided to offer to host the provincial festival of the then B.C.D.A. The offer was accepted and clubs from every Zone had the opportunity to use this state of the art theatre. Ken served on the committee planning the festival and stage managed the event in 1976. While with Little Theatre in Terrace he directed many plays and won Best Director awards in 1977,1979 and in 1992 and won Best Director at the Mainstage Festival which was held that year in Campbell River. Ken was President of the Terrace Little Theatre and was elected as zone chairperson several times during his stay in the Terrace area. He also served on the board of the Terrace and District Arts Council, being their president for two years.

To further his own theatrical education he attended credit courses at UBC, taught drama and gave workshops to students and teachers. He encouraged high schools in the Terrace area to participate in Zone festivals.

Since retiring from his job as a teacher he was very active in the White Rock Players' Club having been their President during the time when the theatre was closed by the City of White Rock for failing to come up to code for public performances. He worked hard for the theatre to raise the money needed to carry out the necessary renovations to the White Rock Playhouse to meet the standards required. At that time the Vancouver Zone was not very active and needed a much needed shot in the arm. Ken again became zone chair and helped to further the fortunes of the Zone. He was appointed by the then President of Theatre BC Jim Warner as a member of the board with a special responsibility for the Vancouver Zone and served for one year attending board meetings. He was awarded the Zone Recognition Award both in the Skeena Zone and later in the Vancouver Zone. He remained a dedicated believer in strong and active Community Theatre as was shown by his keen interest in Theatre BC.

A celebration of Ken's life will be held at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd White Rock, from 2 - 4 pm on Saturday March 3rd.

Here is a list of the plays that Ken Morton was involved with while with the TLT:

and an article in Surrey Now:

Theatre community says goodbye to Ken Morton
BY MELANIE MINTY, SURREY NOW FEBRUARY 23, 2012

Live life with passion. Immerse yourself with what you love to do. Sure, you can gripe about not having enough free time, or funds, to keep you in the lifestyle you would prefer, etc. Go ahead, I'll give you a minute or so to vent. In the end, you do realize that there is no free time. Time costs - maybe not in dollars and cents, but it is important to use our allotted life time doing something we love doing. OK, not 24/7 - that would be a big burnout, for sure.

I devote my time to dance and theatre. Love it. And I am not alone. Ken Morton was one of those individuals who squeezed out a lot of theatre time.

Ken recently passed away, and the entire community theatre world will certainly miss him, one way or another. Ken was a long-time member of White Rock Players' Club, having been an actor, director, producer, president and Theatre BC zone rep. He had a lifelong passion for theatre.

Ah yes, there is that passion thing again. Ken arrived in Canada in 1969 and immediately immersed himself in Terrace Little Theatre. Before Terrace and Canada, Ken was directly active with various community theatre groups in Austria, Germany and England, as an actor/director and club member - a doer, rather than a watcher. While with the British Forces overseas, he was responsible for promoting theatre on several army bases outside of England. He organized workshops and fostered participation in festivals.

Ken encouraged local community theatre groups to get involved with what is now Theatre BC. His participation in theatre is almost legend; he taught in addition to his many other roles. He became very active with White Rock Players after he retired, and was president of the club during the difficult time when its playhouse was closed by the city, as it did not meet code.

He worked hard for the theatre to raise money needed to do necessary renovations to the theatre.

At that time, the Vancouver zone was not very active and needed a shot in the arm.

Ken again became zone chair and helped to further its fortunes. He was appointed by Jim Warner, then-president of Theatre BC, as a member of the board with a special responsibility for the Vancouver zone. He was given recognition awards for his work in the Skeena zone and, later, in Vancouver. He remained a dedicated believer in strong and active community theatre, as was shown by his keen interest in Theatre BC. Well done, Ken. I hope you can hear us giving you your last round of applause.

Christmas Show Volunteer Actor Needed

The Pacific Mist Chorus (Sweet Adelines) are coming up to their Christmas Show and are looking for an actor willing to perform at our show. The chorus always ties their songs together with a script and this year we are using the device of having an audition. We need a male actor .30+ to lead the script. No memorization required, as you'll have a clipboard, with the script on it.

The actor would also be asked to MC the second half (i.e. introduce the Xmas songs.)

2 performances - Nov. 26 and Dec 4 (the second one in Rupert). We would be responsible for picking you up and driving you to Rupert and getting you home.

There is also a tech rehearsal for Nov 24 and I would ask if you were able to come to one or two evening rehearsals - Thursday nights for about an hour each of 2 or 3 nights.

Please call me at 635-5463 if you are interested and I'll let you see the script.

Many thanks
Karla Hennig

Volunteer Actors Needed for Summer Camp

Diana Falardeau is looking for any TLT members would be interested in volunteering time to assist us with a summer camp project that is done in partnership with the local RCMP detachment. The project is called Kids N Kops and it is designed to introduce children to the RCMP (and other community helpers) through role plays, demonstrations and other fun activities. We need people to act out parts of "criminals" in the community in pre-arranged role plays, such as a shoplifter in one of our local stores. This gives children an interactive way of learning/behind the scenes look at police work. The children are junior detectives assisting with the investigations and earning points towards prizes and other items during the camp. The roles don't require scripts, experience or a lot of time commitment (1-2 days scheduled to run in July). If you would like more information or are interested in volunteering please contact me at 250 635 4232 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 250 635 4232 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or by email bbbs@tdcss.ca.

Exciting News - Reno's at the TLT

Exciting News - Reno's at the TLT!

After many years of fund raising, much needed renovations and improvements to the McColl Playhouse are finally taking shape. Drive by the McColl over the coming weeks and you will notice that we're getting a facelift! New siding is being installed. We are also adding insulation - no more long cold hours of rehearsals. This should also help keep our energy costs down.

And watch for the beginnings of a new on-site warehouse. The slab will be poured within the next few weeks and construction of the actual warehouse is expected in the early fall. Soon it will be time to move everything over from the old warehouse to the new so watch your emails for an opportunity to help us out.

New Auditorium Risers

Big thanks to Norm and Garnett for their planning, craftsmanship, and hard work in putting together the new chair-risers for the auditorium. Another big thanks to Garnett's nephew Beau for his help, and to Patrick for keeping everybody hydrated and fed in what turned out to be a long day.

Pride of Hockeyville Needs a Co-Captain or "Self-Help" is cast, but we need a Stage Manager

For over forty years the Terrace Little Theatre has been entertaining Terrace and the surrounding region with top-notch theatre performances and has represented Terrace in style and pride at too many provincial and regional festivals to count.

If you want to be an integral part of BC's longest running and most successful amateur theatre troupe, this is your chance. We have chosen our spring show and it's cast. All we need now is someone to help steer the ship.

We require a Stage Manager and back stage crew members. The Stage Manager is the number two in the system. He/she helps the director with the everyday managerial tasks that can sometimes take him/her away from focusing creatively on bringing the best product possible to the stage. The SM eventually takes the reins at Dress Rehearsal and takes the directors vision and makes it reality by ensuring the lighting and sound cues are performed properly and that the backstage crew (or ASM's) are doing their jobs so that the actors can focus on putting their best work ON the stage for the audience. He/she also works closely with the producer and TLT executive board to bring the show to the stage.

It sounds like a lot of work, but it's also very rewarding and in the end when the run is over, you've helped bring joy to hundreds of people, made a bunch of new friends in the process, you'll have been bitten by the theatre bug and want to do it again and again and again. Plus you'll get to see one of the most hilarious shows we've ever done FOR FREE!

If you're interested in SM-ing or ASM-ing or if you think the technical end of things (lighting and or sound work) is right for you, please call Chris Stone at (250) 635 3334 or email to christone@citywest.ca.

Terrace Screening of "The Way Home" - March 3rd

Dear Friend,

Today, between 10,000 and 15,000 British Columbians are homeless. They are our neighbours, our sisters and brothers, our sons and daughters.

I want to invite you to attend the presentation of a new film on homelessness I will be hosting in Terrace on Tuesday March 3rd, 7pm, McColl Playhouse (3625 Kalum St.).

Last year I traveled to 22 towns and cities across BC and spoke with hundreds of homeless people, service providers and local government officials. Two young film makers, Kevin Fitzgerald and Louvens Remy, followed the tour and did hundreds of hours of additional filming. The result, "The Way Home", is a moving, thoughtful and informative film. We promised then to return to each of the towns we filmed in to show the movie, and on Tuesday, March 3rd we will keep that commitment.

British Columbians are caring and decent. We want to work together to end homelessness. This film showing is a chance for us to learn more about homelessness, and to speak with one another about what we can do to make our province a better place for every British Columbian.

I look forward to seeing you there.

David Chudnovsky
MLA Vancouver-Kensington

Script Library

Our Script Library includes close to 600 titles amassed over the years. Some of these were purchased by Terrace Little Theatre, but most have been donated by members.

What if I have scripts I am willing to loan out?

Skeena Zone Clubs and individual members who are willing to loan scripts from their personal libraries, please email info@mytlt.ca or fax 638-0211 a list of your titles (including playwright and publisher) and how you wish to be contacted by loanee's. We will gladly do the rest.

How do I go about borrowing a script?

TLT scripts are loaned for 2 weeks in-town, and 4 weeks out-of-town. Script pick up and return details will be worked out on a case by case basis. To submit a request to borrow script, simply use the email link in the 'Owner Contact Info' field of the script record.

The TLT script library consists of only published scripts. We do not have any scripts available in electronic format. Copyright laws restrict us from electronically reproducing or copying scripts. Scripts, in the printed format as provided by the publisher, will only be loaned to Theatre BC and Skeena Zone members and individuals associated with a theatre group in Northwest British Columbia.

NOTE: In the case of scripts not owned by TLT, it is up to each owner to track loans and negotiate return dates.

Database Tips

Our Script Database is self explanatory and very easy to use, thanks to a very smart design by TLT member Patrick McIntyre of Web North Marketing and Design. However, to ensure you make use its features as quickly as possible, here are a few tips:

Single click on the play Title to display the full script record, including description and owner contact info.

To sort by column, single click on the column heading.

When sorted by Title or Playwright, use the Filter to display only records starting with the same first letter. To turn off the filter, set it back to None.

Go To The Terrace Little Theatre Script Database

IMPORTANT: Under copyright laws, scripts may not be photocopied or used for production purposes. Please contact the applicable publisher to secure production rights.
