Escanaba in da Moonlight

written by: Jeff Daniels
directed by: Jeff Rogner

When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family's Upper Peninsula camp, forty three-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, Escanaba in da Moonlight spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.

Performance Dates:
Friday, September 26, and Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, September 28, at 2:30 p.m.
Friday, October 3, and Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Murder in the Klondike

written by: Richard Hingst

Please join us for auditions for our next murder mystery dinner, Murder in the Klondike, written by our very own LCT member, Richard Hingst! Auditions will be held on Sunday, September 21st, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Click here for more detailed audition information.

Rehearsals will take place on Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., September 27th and October 4th, 11th and 18th.

Show dates will be Sunday evenings, October 19th and 26th, November 2nd, 9th and 16th at Calvelli's Eatery and Spirits. We will also be performing an additional show on Saturday, November 1st at Canterbury Village.

There are roles for 6 men and 4 women. One male cast member must be able to play the piano, and one female cast member must be able to demonstrate singing ability. The show will follow a script but the real fun comes with the cast interacting with the patrons and improvising with each other. Auditions will be based around improvisational skits (much like the TV show "Whose Line is it Anyway?").

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will all take place at Calvelli's in downtown Lapeer (except as noted with one performance taking place at Canterbury Village in Lake Orion). Click here to see our flyer.

Murder mysteries are a ton of fun, whether you are part of the cast, or a part of the audience. We hope to see you there!

The Christmas Schooner

book by John Reeger
music & lyrics by Julie Shannon
directed by: Lisa Smith
to be performed on: December 5, 6 & 7, and December 12 & 13, 2014

Based on the true life voyages of the Christmas tree ships during the late 1800's and early 1900's, The Christmas Schooner tells of a shipping captain who braves the gales of November on Lake Michigan to deliver Christmas Trees to homesick immigrant families in Chicago. The Christmas Schooner is a heartwarming and powerful story about family, tradition and holiday spirit.
