We are going to do “Aesop and George” by Claudia Haas for the LMS Spring play!
Performance dates are May 31 (7pm), June 2 (7pm), June 3 (2pm), with a possible matinee on June 2 if needed.
Here is the synopsis:
Aesop–now a mere shadow of himself–wanders the world looking to see if his stories have made an impact over the centuries. When he takes refuge in an abandoned theater during a thunderstorm, he encounters George the ghost and his echoes, all that remain of the building’s past performances. As the ghost and the storyteller square off, stories fly back and forth: Aesop’s tales come thoughtfully with just a touch of silly, and George delivers his side of the argument with all the razzmatazz of show biz. But what is the value of a story? Is it there to entertain? To educate? Can it do both?
Tryouts will be Tuesday March 6th, from 2:30-5pm in the LMS Cafe. Most rehearsals will be Tuesdays and Thursday (beginning March 27), though the first two weeks’ rehearsal will be:
Monday March 12
Friday March 16
Thursday March 22
Friday March 23
