Beyond the RLT Logo

December, 2016

I am sure that after seeing “Into the Woods” at RLT all six performances that you will be searching for other theatre extravaganzas to keep you even busier during the holiday season.  Lots of holiday offerings are all over, so let’s start with the ones closest to home and ending soon!  Wonderful lives, nutcrackers, nativities, Scrooges and radio shows, oh my!

 

The Berry College Theatre Company will be presenting a show RLT has selected for next Christmas season, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” but their production will only run December 1st-3rd, so hurry if you want to see it.  While their theatre is being rebuilt, they are performing at other venues around campus, so this production will be in the Krannert Ballroom.  Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, with an added 2:00 p.m. matinee on Saturday.  No show on Sunday.  Call 706-236-2263 for reservations.  I understand that Friday night is already sold out!  More information is available at www.berry.edu/bctc/season.

Into the Woods LogoCongratulations to the cast of Into the Woods! Please e-mail Amanda Swendsen at AmandaMBorn@gmail.com to accept or decline your role.  Information about the first meeting will be sent via email within a couple of days.
Thank you to everyone who auditioned. There are many ways that we could have cast this show and each of them would have been comprised of dynamic and talented actors. The truth is that casting is a complicated puzzle and decisions often come down to who has conflicts, who pairs with whom, and at least a dozen other factors outside of the actor’s control.

Let’s rally for the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund!


Jason Endowment Fund

LET”S RALLY!

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established following Jason’s death on September 24, 2013. He was 39 at the time of his death. Almost 4-years earlier, Jason had been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor, and every treatment used over that 4-year period proved unsuccessful in reducing or treating the cancer.

Jason was a supporter of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia, particularly related to community theatre and the preservation of the Historic DeSoto Theatre. Jason was a member of both the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Board at the time of his death. Jason had served as president of the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors from 2009-2011.

In addition to his love of theatre as an actor, director, and producer, Jason was also an avid reader, game designer, singer, and writer. The two organizations to which he was so dedicated continue to miss his creative and intellectual abilities.

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established to not only honor Jason’s contributions to theatre and serve as his legacy, but it will also provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc., both of which are 501(c)(3) organizations.

Your donation to the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund will be held in trust to generate interest and dividends for equal distribution to Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc. to be used in whatever manner each organization deems appropriate to advance the arts in Rome and Floyd County.

Announcing Auditions for You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!


charlie-brown-logo-rlt4

The Production Team for “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” announces auditions to be held Monday, December 12 and Tuesday, December 13.

AUDITION REGISTRATION HERE

The cast of characters is below. Please take some time to familiarize yourselves with the entire Peanuts gang. These iconic characters have distinct personalities and relationships with each other. They are fun to play, and it will be important to bring them to life in a way that honors the history of their story.

While these characters are children, they are meant to be played by adults. Children have a certain way of seeing the world, and part of the fun and challenge of this show is to find adults that can convey that same childlike wonder with humor and sensitivity.

Auditions are open to anyone of any age that can be believable as an adult playing a child. Meaning, the final cast needs to be cohesive in look and appearance as well as chemistry and temperament.

Auditioners are asked to familiarize themselves with the character they most prefer, as well as the song listed below for that character. Portions of the songs below (to be covered at auditions) will be reviewed and performed for the audition. We will not have enough time to thoroughly acquaint/teach each auditioner their chosen song, so prior preparation will be important! Make sure you know the song well all the way through. The 1999 Cast recording is a good version to listen to (Anthony Rapp, Kristen Chenoweth).

The casting committee plans to finalize casting in one audition day (Monday) and one callback day (Tuesday). Please make every effort to attend Monday auditions starting at 6 pm. A callback list will be posted Monday by midnight.  Callbacks will be held Tuesday beginning at 7 pm.

Anyone absolutely unable to attend auditions Monday night will be allowed to audition Tuesday from 6 to 6:45 pm by appointment only.

Should you wish to schedule Tuesday audition, please email Director Mandy Maloney @ mrs.maloney@gmail.com.

 

CAST OF CHARACTERS and THEIR SONGS:

Charlie Brown- “The Kite”

Lucy Van Pelt- “The Doctor Is In”

Linus (Lucy’s brother)- “My Blanket and Me”

Sally (Charlie Brown’s sister)- “My New Philosophy”

Schroeder- “Beethoven Day”

Snoopy (Charlie Brown’s dog)- “Suppertime”
