It Can't Happen Here

By Sinclair Lewis

Adapted for the stage by Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen

Director Michael Anthony and cast present Sinclair Lewis' now-classic story, newly adapted for the stage from the 1935 novel of the same name. It Can't Happen Here was commissioned and originally produced by Berkeley Repertory Theatre (Tony Taccone, Artistic Director; Susan Medak, Managing Director; Theresa Von Klug, General Manager) in September 2016.

"A cautionary dark satire about the fragility of democracy and how fascism can take hold even in the land of liberty, IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. Witnessing the new president’s tyranny from the sidelines is a liberal, middle-class newspaper editor from Vermont who trusts the system will fix itself—until he ends up in a prison camp. Sinclair Lewis’ eerily prescient 1935 novel gets a fresh update in this adaptation that examines what brings a citizenry to the point of sacrificing its own freedom and how a courageous few can prevail to overcome the fall."
Dramatists.com
"We have adapted this novel with enormous respect and admiration for it's author, Sinclair Lewis. Even when taking liberties with both content and form, we have tried to retain the intent and ambition of the original text.
Mr. Lewis was a singular artist, and his ability to grasp the complexity and underpinnings of American society and to reimagine the world continues to be a source on inspiration. With this play, we hope to sustain his artistic legacy and to translate his overreaching vision into a compelling piece of theatre.

The Notebook of Trigorin, a Free Adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull

By Tennessee Wiliams

Director Katie Olsen and cast are proud to present the Dalton Little Theatre 2018-19 Season opener, written by Tennessee Williams and based off of Anton Chekhov's classic "The Seagull"

"On his Uncle Sorin's lakeside estate, Constantine's new play premieres to disdainful reactions from the family and friends who have gathered: Masha; her future husband Medvedenko; Dorn, a lecherous doctor; Shamrayev, manager of the estate; and his wife Polina. Constantine's mother, the famous actress Madame Arkadina (and prima donna), is not one to suppress her true feelings on her son's contribution to the theatre: She abhors it. Humiliated, Constantine sulks over his life, his art, and dotes on the play's star, the woman he loves, Nina, who is infatuated with Madame Arkadina's companion, the established writer Boris Trigorin. Since Trigorin is the object of affection for Nina, as well as Madame Arkadina, he becomes the object of scorn and jealousy for Constantine. In an attempt to explain his brooding, morbid nature, Constantine presents Nina with a dead seagull, which he has just shot—a sacrificial symbol of events to come. Before the evening is over the characters' dreams, infidelities, and self-deceptions will be revealed: Nina's reluctance to love Constantine; Trigorin's lust for Nina; Masha's love for Constantine and boredom with her new husband; Dorn's insecurities on his aging appearance and his affair with Polina; and Sorin's constant pleadings with his sister Arkadina to accept and encourage his nephew, her son. Two summers later finds Constantine the successful writer; Masha, a drunk, lamenting her love for Constantine; Madame Arkadina, haggard and struggling to hold onto Trigorin; and Nina, returning to the lake after her failed acting career and rueful involvement with Trigorin, seeking sympathy and understanding from the disturbed Constantine, who still loves her enough to take his own life.
Tennessee Williams' fresh adaptation of the Chekhov classic brings to life the story of Constantine, the sensitive young writer, whose quest for love, art and acceptance is larger than life itself."

The Notebook of Trigorin, a Free Adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull

By Tennessee Wiliams

Director Katie Olsen and cast are proud to present the Dalton Little Theatre 2018-19 Season opener, written by Tennessee Williams and based off of Anton Chekhov's classic "The Seagull"

"On his Uncle Sorin's lakeside estate, Constantine's new play premieres to disdainful reactions from the family and friends who have gathered: Masha; her future husband Medvedenko; Dorn, a lecherous doctor; Shamrayev, manager of the estate; and his wife Polina. Constantine's mother, the famous actress Madame Arkadina (and prima donna), is not one to suppress her true feelings on her son's contribution to the theatre: She abhors it. Humiliated, Constantine sulks over his life, his art, and dotes on the play's star, the woman he loves, Nina, who is infatuated with Madame Arkadina's companion, the established writer Boris Trigorin. Since Trigorin is the object of affection for Nina, as well as Madame Arkadina, he becomes the object of scorn and jealousy for Constantine. In an attempt to explain his brooding, morbid nature, Constantine presents Nina with a dead seagull, which he has just shot—a sacrificial symbol of events to come. Before the evening is over the characters' dreams, infidelities, and self-deceptions will be revealed: Nina's reluctance to love Constantine; Trigorin's lust for Nina; Masha's love for Constantine and boredom with her new husband; Dorn's insecurities on his aging appearance and his affair with Polina; and Sorin's constant pleadings with his sister Arkadina to accept and encourage his nephew, her son. Two summers later finds Constantine the successful writer; Masha, a drunk, lamenting her love for Constantine; Madame Arkadina, haggard and struggling to hold onto Trigorin; and Nina, returning to the lake after her failed acting career and rueful involvement with Trigorin, seeking sympathy and understanding from the disturbed Constantine, who still loves her enough to take his own life.
Tennessee Williams' fresh adaptation of the Chekhov classic brings to life the story of Constantine, the sensitive young writer, whose quest for love, art and acceptance is larger than life itself."

An Evening with Tennessee Williams

Dalton Little Theatre prepares to celebrate a famous American playwright in their production of An Evening With Tennessee Williams that opens Friday, July 20th and runs for two weekends. 

Director Jeffery Adair and the select cast has poured their heart and soul into this production at Dalton Little Theater. They began working on their performances in March of this year. Under the umbrella title “The Garden District,” these two Tennessee Williams one-act plays ”Something Unspoken” and “Suddenly Last Summer” opened Off Broadway in January 1958 to much critical acclaim. One critique wrote that the curtain raiser “Something Unspoken” is as spare and elliptical as the closer “Suddenly Last Summer” is ripe and excessive. The strengths of both plays are once again revealed in our production. The shows have adult themes and are both serious well-written and acted dramatic pieces

Judith Beasley and Nancy Broussard perform in "Something Unspoken" as they peel away their characters hostory, layer by layer, to expose the two complex, conflicted women and their relationship. In "Suddenly Last Summer," Jordan Cox, William Brooks, Kristen Douglas, Katie Johansson, Jessica Keith, Karen Keith, and Ashley Larsen tell a horrifyingly dark tale of lust and lies. Chase Parker will host; Caeli Evans is stage manager. Performance dates are June 20, 21, 26, 27, and 28 at 7:00 and June 22 at 2:00. Tickets are available at daltonlittletheatre.com or by calling 706-226-6618.
