Announcing show and audition dates for the Rome Little Theatre 2015-2016 season



RLT RLT JR LOGO

We are very excited to announce the show and audition dates for the Rome Little Theatre 2015-2016 season!

Drinking Habits
August 21 – August 30, 2015
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, June 1, 2, 3, 2015

Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on the trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

Addams Family the Musical
October 23 – November 1, 2015
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, July 20, 21, 22, 2015

The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams, must do something he has never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

White Christmas the Musical
December 4- December 13, 2015
School Shows: Tuesday, Wednesday, December 8, December 9, 2015
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, August 24, 25, 26, 2015

Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander.

The Secret Garden
January 29 – February 7, 2016
School Shows: Tuesday, Wednesday, February 2, February 3, 2016
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, October 26, 27, 28, 2015

This joyous story about the growth and blossoming of the earth and the human spirit is a garden of delight for the ears and the imagination. Mary and Colin, whose natures have been badly warped, thrive with the discovery that selflessness opens a secret door to happiness. They are encouraged by the warmhearted Yorkshire maid, Martha and her brother Dickon, who understands the language of birds, animals and flowers; the crusty gardener, Ben Weatherstaff; and, of course, the robin who leads Mary to the garden that changes her life. Colin’s reunion with his father touches all of us deeply.

Noises Off
April 1 – April 10, 2016
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, December 7, 8, 9, 2015

Noises Off, Michael Frayn’s Tony award winning comic masterpiece is not one play, but two. The hilariously horrible, British sex farce, Nothing On, and the comedic nightmare that ensues backstage.

Second Samuel
June 3 – June 12, 2016
Auditions: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, February 1, 2, 3, 2016

It was a simpler time in the late 1940s, especially in South Georgia and specifically in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. What had been called the Great Depression was quickly fading into memory. The war had been won, the election was now over, and “Give’em Hell Harry was still president. It had been an exciting time for sure, but folks in Second Samuel were ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except – this was the summer Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep dark secrets were about to be revealed. Nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if anything would ever be normal again!
