Presenting the Reading Committee Selections for the 2016-2017 Season

RLTlogoBEST The Reading Committee has done another wonderful, thorough job this year putting together 3 slates of productions to choose from for the 2016-2017 season. Rome Little Theatre members will receive ballots by mail or email in the next few weeks. Until then, please take some time to look over the selections to help make your voting easier.

At the request of the Reading Committee, show selections are being offered as three distinct slates for the 2016-2017 season, in order to create a balance of production and casting requirements. You will be voting for the entire slate, rather than the individual show.


2016-2017 SEASON SLATE #1 Continue reading

Enjoy the latest installment of Beyond the RLT with Wendell Barnes!

Beyond the RLT Logo

May and Summer, 2015

By Wendell Barnes

RLT’s closing show this season is the hilarious baseball comedy, “Bleacher Bums,” and after you have laughed through this ensemble’s six performances, you are either sure to want to go see a baseball game, or perhaps hide out in a darkened theatre where it’s cool to see even more joy.  There is lots going on all around us “Beyond the RLT!”


But before we go beyond, for sure you don’t want to miss the other two shows that will be performed this summer AT the RLT, the production by RLT Jr. of “Disney’s Aladdin” and the production of the Upstagers Theatre Company of “Cats,” for its third visit to the DeSoto.  “Cats” will be up first, the weekend of June 12th and 13th in Cedartown at 8:00 p.m. at the Cedartown Civic Auditorium, and then the company will move to the DeSoto where they will have three performances the next weekend on June 19th and 20th at 8:00 and June 21st at 2:30.  This is the third time RLT veteran and Honorary Lifetime Member Don Rusaw has helmed the production at the DeSoto, and this cast has been working for months to perfect the show.  The RLT Jr.’s production of “Disney’s Aladdin” will run for two weekends on the usual RLT schedule, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 and Sundays at 2:30 from July 17th-26th.  Call 706-295-7171 for more information and reservations for both of these wonderful shows.
