Tacoma Little Theater Selected for Regional Theatre Competition!
Tacoma Little Theatre is honored to be representing Washington State at the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) Regional Festival in Boise, Idaho with their performance of last season's hit, Second Samuel, written by Pamela Parker, and directed by Chris Serface.
It was a simpler time in the late 1940's, especially in South Georgia in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. The Great Depression was quickly fading into memory, the war had been won, and "Give 'em Hell Harry" was still president. 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. Would anything ever be normal again?
This production features Aaron Mohs-Hale (B Flat), Kerry Bringman (Frisky), Jermaine Lindsay (US), Bob Yount (Mansel), Tom Birkeland (Mr. Mozel), Diana George (Omaha), JILL HEINECKE (Jimmy Deeanne), Neicie Packer (Marcela), Megan Saunders (Ruby), Michael Dresdner (Doc), and Marc Carvajal (June).
SECOND SAMUEL will present a special public performance prior to the festival, on Tuesday, March 28th at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $10.00 per seat for these special performances and they will be held at Tacoma Little Theatre. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre.com, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
