An Evening to Celebrate 150 Years of Live Theatre in Dalton, including a reading of The Green Mountain Boy

An Evening to Celebrate 150 Years of Live Theatre in Dalton, including a reading of:

The Green Mountain Boy

written by J.S. Jones

Directed by Jennifer Jones

The production will consist of two acts. The first act will be a walk down memory lane, reviewing the history of theatre in Dalton and several performances by familiar faces from the DLT family.

The second act will be a reading of The Green Mountain Boy, the first documented stage production in Dalton, which was performed on October 4th, 1869.

The Green Mountain Boy synopsis:
Mr. Tompkins has money. Mr. Wilkins has a title. If Mr. Tompkins marries off his daughter, Ellen, to Mr. Wilkins, then both will have both. But Ellen has other plans. So begins this comedy filled with down-home humor, false identities, and a mix of quirky characters ranging from Joe Shakespeare, a self-professed poet, to Jedediah Homebred, who thinks he "knows a little something about grammar," and has "an inexhaustible supply of homespun sayings."

Originally premiering at Park Theater, New York City, March 19, 1833, The Green Mountain Boy: A Comedy in Two Acts was performed on October 4, 1969 by the Dalton Amateurs, the theater group who, after several decades and generations would come to be known as Dalton Little Theatre. October 4, 2019, 150 years to the date, will be the opening night of DLT's performance of this same play as a staged reading. It will be the second half of an evening celebrating DLT's 150 year birthday. The celebration event will be repeated on October 5th.

The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project

Directed by Will Schmerge

In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Due to the subject matter, this play necessarily contains both adult and graphic language, and some mature themes.

Divorce, Southern Style

Dalton Little Theatre is excited to be bringing Divorce, Southern Style to the DLT stage!

Written by Jennifer Jarrett

Directed by Ronald King

Produced through a special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, INC.

An established favorite with stock theatres, this fast-paced, wildly funny farce centers on the zany schemes of a middle-aged divorcee who decides that the time is ripe to get back together with her ex-husband. Divorced for fifteen years, and running low on cash, Eleanor Bander decides reconciliation with her ex-husband (whose second wife died the year before) is her best hope. To lure him within striking range, she tells him that their daughter is about to be married—hinting that it is a forced situation—when the truth is that the daughter is merely engaged again (for the fifth time) to her long-standing fiancé. The ex-husband, Walter, not only arrives but brings along his current flame, a former classmate who was Eleanor's competition from high-school days. As the plot thickens, which it does with growing hilarity, Eleanor's friends and neighbors become involved in the action, culminating in a sur-prise birthday party where the truth, at last, comes out. But Walter is pre-pared to forgive and forget, and falls easily into Eleanor's trap. So easily, in fact, that Eleanor is the one who now has second thoughts—deciding that it is better, after all, to stay single and broke than to resume the bickering that drove her away from Walter in the first place.

Produced through a special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, INC.

An established favorite with stock theatres, this fast-paced, wildly funny farce centers on the zany schemes of a middle-aged divorcee who decides that the time is ripe to get back together with her ex-husband. Divorced for fifteen years, and running low on cash, Eleanor Bander decides reconciliation with her ex-husband (whose second wife died the year before) is her best hope. To lure him within striking range, she tells him that their daughter is about to be married—hinting that it is a forced situation—when the truth is that the daughter is merely engaged again (for the fifth time) to her long-standing fiancé. The ex-husband, Walter, not only arrives but brings along his current flame, a former classmate who was Eleanor's competition from high-school days. As the plot thickens, which it does with growing hilarity, Eleanor's friends and neighbors become involved in the action, culminating in a sur-prise birthday party where the truth, at last, comes out. But Walter is pre-pared to forgive and forget, and falls easily into Eleanor's trap. So easily, in fact, that Eleanor is the one who now has second thoughts—deciding that it is better, after all, to stay single and broke than to resume the bickering that drove her away from Walter in the first place.

Bruce and Prudence are deeply into therapy. Prudence’s macho therapist is urging her to be more assertive, while Bruce’s wacky female therapist wants him to meet women by placing a personal ad. She does not fully comprehend that Bruce has a male lover who is not pleased by Bruce’s desire to date a woman. Bruce doesn’t know how to handle poor, nervous Prudence, and Prudence doesn’t know what to make of her unpredictable new boyfriend. They do learn to live beyond therapy in this delightful Off Broadway hit that moved successfully to Broadway .
