LITTLE THEATRE OF MANCHESTER ANNOUNCES 2019 SEASON

posted in: Blog, Press Releases | 0

The Little Theatre of Manchester (LTM) announced today its 2019 season. Beginning in February, LTM will produce five popular titles: Ken Ludwig’s THE GAME’S AFOOT, a murderously funny mystery; the Tony and Grammy award-winning musical sensation DREAMGIRLS; the searing Tony award-winning drama THE NORMAL HEART; and THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB, a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships. The final title is international sensation MAMMA MIA!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA.

 

LTM Executive Director Dwayne Harris said of the lineup, “I’m thrilled that LTM’s Artistic Board has again put together an exciting and well-rounded season of high-quality entertainment. From a comedy mystery to an award-winning drama, from a classic Motown musical to a more contemporary musical offering, I think our subscribers and single ticket buyers will be very happy with these selections.”

 

Renewing subscribers will receive their renewal packages in September, and new subscription packages and single tickets will go on sale in October. All dates and titles are subject to change.

 

The 2019 Season

 

Ken Ludwig’s THE GAME’S AFOOT, February 1 – 17, 2019
It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit.

 

DREAMGIRLS, April 12 – 28, 2019
Winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards A sweeping and inspirational journey through 20th-century American popular music, DREAMGIRLS chronicles one Motown group’s rise from obscurity to superstardom. Through gospel, R&B, smooth pop, disco and more, this audience favorite explores themes of ambition, hope, and betrayal, all set in the glamorous and competitive world of the entertainment industry. DREAMGIRLS features unforgettable hits by Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger – including “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “One Night Only” and “Listen.”

 

THE NORMAL HEART, June 7 – 23, 2019
Winner of the 2011 Tony Award – Best Revival of a Play A searing drama about public and private indifference to the AIDS plague and one man’s lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis. THE NORMAL HEART follows Ned Weeks, an activist enraged at the indifference of public officials and the gay community. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease. Hailed by critics as “riveting” (Newsday) and “a great night at the theater” (New York Times).

 

THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB, August 2 – 18, 2019
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

 

MAMMA MIA!, November 1 – 17, 2019
A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!

ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found. MAMMA MIA! is one of the most successful musicals of all time, the eighth longest-running show in Broadway history and one of only five musicals to have run for more than ten years on Broadway.

HARVEY Hops to Cheney Hall in February

Little Theatre of Manchester’s 58th Season Kicks Off

MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT – Elwood P. Dowd has only one character flaw: an unwavering friendship with a six-foot-tall, invisible rabbit named Harvey. The Pulitzer Prize-winning HARVEY is on stage at the Little Theatre of Manchester February 2 through 18.

In this a time-honored, classic comedy, Elwood is inseparable from his best friend and confidant, Harvey. In order to save the family’s reputation, Elwood’s sister Veta takes him to see a psychiatrist.  But when the doctor mistakenly commits anxiety-ridden Veta instead of her brother, it sets off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.

HARVEY is directed by LTM director and actor Shane William Kegler whose previous LTM credits include Twelfth Night and last season’s The 39 Steps. He was last seen on the Cheney Hall stage in last season’s Sons of the Prophet. The cast features Mitch Hess of Vernon as Elwood P. Dowd and Virginia Wolf of Farmington as Veta Louise Simmons, Elwood’s sister.

The rest of the cast includes Mara Pelto of Storrs, Sunny Kirkham of Ashford, Lauren Casola of West Hartford, Scott “Woody” Woodruff of Vernon, Oliver Kochol of Southington, Mark O’Donnell of Windsor, Rayah Martin of Manchester, David Regan of South Hadley, and David Barbour of Ashford.

HARVEY premiered on Broadway in 1944, winning writer Mary Chase the Pulitzer Prize for Drama the following year. Two movies were made, in 1950 and 1972, with James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd, the delightful man whose best friend is an imaginary rabbit. The play was on Broadway with Stewart, later with Art Carney, and in 2012 with Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory. It was revived in 2015 in London’s West End.

HARVEY is sponsored by DNR Laboratories.

FIRST NIGHTER: THE 39 STEPS

posted in: 2017, Blog, The 39 Steps | 0

All you need to know about Little Theatre’s upcoming production!

About THE 39 STEPS By David Garnes

The original Alfred Hitchcock film, on which this spoof is based, was one of the movies made during Hitchcock’s early career in Britain, where he had a distinguished run as a film director. The Hitchcock filmography goes back to the days of silent films. His take on Jack the Ripper, called The Lodger, is probably the best of these early movies. Two talkies, The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes, were very successful on both sides of the Atlantic and made him famous in the United States. As war broke out in 1939, Hollywood beckoned, and over he came to America under a contract with David O. Selznick. Thus began his amazing career, which lasted for decades.
The 39 Steps has had several incarnations—originally as a book in 1915 written by one John Buchan, author of many novels and historical works and later a successful politician who became governor general of Canada. Twenty years later, in 1935, we have the Hitchcock film, which was enormously popular.
Then, in 1995, a stage adaptation—really a spoof—was written by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. It had modest success and toured around England in small venues. Little Theatre of Manchester’s 39 Steps follows the text of a re-write of the play by Patrick Barlow. Barlow, a writer and actor who has appeared in small roles in many films, including the fairly recent Notting Hill, Nanny McPhee, and Shakespeare in Love. But The 39 Steps made his fortune, playing for nine years in London and becoming the fifth longest-running play in the West End.
It’s had a couple of runs on Broadway, but it was first premiered in the United States by the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston, then in New York by the Roundabout Theatre. Its eventual run on Broadway played nearly 800 performances, and it was nominated for six Tony Awards, winning two for Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design. (This is interesting in terms of indicating the importance of these two factors in the play, and we’ll mention more about that).
So, as to the play itself: The cast consists of four actors, one of whom plays one character only; a second takes on the role of three women; and two actors play a multitude of roles, including, at times, inanimate objects. They are called “clowns” in the credits. The play is fast-moving and funny, and once it begins the momentum never slows. Although its ultimate effect on the audience is far different from that of viewers of Hitchcock’s often scary, certainly nail-biting films, there is much that is typical of him in the play, for example:
  • The average, though sometimes world-weary and dapper man, so to speak, finding himself in increasingly extreme circumstances is a device used by Hitchcock many times
  • The Hitchcock blonde, typified in the original movie by the actress Madeleine Carroll and all the way up to the 50s by Grace Kelly and Tippi Hedren, Eva Marie Saint and Kim Novak in other films. Even Doris Day found herself in The Man Who Knew Too Much
  • The often bizarre and improbable locations where the action takes place
  • The Hitchcock wit, which is sometimes overlooked in his films because of the drama and suspense, but is certainly in abundance in the play
Some of the things to watch out for as you watch this production:
  • How props are dealt with
  • The “costume” changes that occur—shall we say, more than once. Notice what constitutes a costume
  • The dialogue, including some racy lines that are taken directly from the Hitchcock film. Hitchcock was sly in his filmmaking and this play takes full advantage of that aspect of his scripts. This play is much more like the script of the movie than the narrative of the original novel
  • The sound and light effects—very important
  • And, finally, for Hitchcock aficionados, the reference to other Hitchcock movies— see if you can spot some when you see the play (Hint: think Psycho, North by Northwest, Rear Window and Vertigo and a few others.)

A Note from the Director

“There is something more important than logic: imagination.” -Alfred Hitchcock
A man once wrote a book, another person adapted it into a movie, then another person adapted it into a play, which another person further adapted into this play. And here we have what is the hysterical chaos of The 39 Steps. As Hitchcock said, imagination is more important than logic, and we take great comfort in that.
Hitchcock has given us a great blueprint for this show. Not just with his film The 39 Steps, but with all of his films. I, the cast, and designers all took time to watch a selection of Hitchcock films in preparation for this project. We have countless homages and throwbacks to his films with our sets, sounds, costumes, props, and acting choices. I have immensely enjoyed my time on this project and I can’t remember another rehearsal process where I broke down laughing every day as with this one.
Sit back, relax, and discover the secret that is…The 39 Steps!
Shane William Kegler
Director
“The theater is an empty box and it is our task to fill it with fury”

Press Release: HITCHCOCK SPOOF STEPS ONTO CHENEY HALL STAGE

HITCHCOCK SPOOF STEPS ONTO CHENEY HALL STAGE
Little Theatre of Manchester Presents THE 39 STEPS
MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT – Little Theatre of Manchester (LTM) continues its 2017 season in August with the high-speed spoof of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy movie, Patrick Barlow’s THE 39 STEPS. Directed by Shane William Kegler, this comedy runs from Friday, August 11 to Sunday, August 27.
Featuring a cast of four actors who breathlessly and hilariously reenact hundreds of characters, locations and famous scenes in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller of the same name, THE 39 STEPS is packed with nonstop laughs, an on-stage plane crash, and some good old-fashioned romance!
“Everyone loves a good murder mystery, and they love a good outrageous comedy,” says Kegler (of East Hartford). “There is nothing too deep about this show; it’s just a bizarre romp through some of Hitchcock’s favorite elements: mistaken identity, an icy blonde with a mysterious past, an innocent man on the run from the law, and an over-the-top murder plot that only he can stop.”
Hitchcock’s movie was based on a novel published in 1915. John Buchan’s The Thirty-Nine Steps pits the hero Richard Hannay, against a network of German spies preparing to storm Great Britain. Buchan called his novel a “shocker, where the incidents defy the probabilities and march just inside the borders of the possible.” Hannay is portrayed as an average guy who pursues a deadly plot at his own peril out of his great loyalty to his country; the events of the novel are outlandish and Hannay shouldn’t be able to survive the ordeal, yet he perseveres against incredible odds.
The 1935 film was considered Alfred Hitchcock’s first masterpiece. Though the film maintained the lead character of Richard Hannay, Hitchcock radically altered the novel by including Madeleine Carroll as Pamela, a beautiful blonde British bombshell romantically linked to Robert Donat’s Hannay. Following the success of The 39 Steps, Hitchcock moved to Hollywood, where he produced his most famous films, including North by Northwest, Psycho, Vertigo, and Rear Window.
The four-person cast includes:
  • Shawn Procuniar of New London as Richard Hannay
  • Christine Voytko of East Windsor as Pamela and others
  • Ed Bernstein of West Hartford as Clown 1
  • Michael King of Manchester as Clown 2
THE 39 STEPS is sponsored by the Manchester Chapter of UNICO.
