AUDITIONS START AT 11 – 2 PM, SATURDAY, JANUARY 6th, or by appointment. LATTE hows are chosen based on cast complement, talent, and chemistry. Teens 11 – 19 are eligible for this intensive, acting training program.
SUMMER rehearsals are 12 – 3 Mondays – Fridays. Heck week attendance is mandatory. Adherence to the Actor’s Code is an integral part of LATTE. Frontrunners are Murder on the Orient Express, Comedy of Errors, and Alice in Wonderland.
Nobody does mystery like Agatha Christie.
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.
Enter a world devoted to Shakespeare’s absurd comedy saluting our endless, human errors! Filled to the brim with acrobatic mayhem, the hilarity and hijinks of this Comedy of Errors are larger-than-life. Our cleverly abridged, 90-minute production will have audience members of all ages reeling with laughter – with you at the slapstick, vaudevillian helm in this show. Be part of this a torrent of jokes, puns, and farce, within a frivolous story about the mixing up of two sets of twins.
Everywhere they go, strangers insist that they’re old friends. Mistaken identities abound, but in the end, chaos gives way to clarity in this comedy filled with mayhem and madness, as the entire cast, in high jinx in their characters’ reactions, leads the audience through to the two Antipholuses and two Dromios to know their identity.
Antipholus and his lifelong companion, Dromio, search the world over for a long-lost twin. Everywhere they go, complete strangers insist they’re the best of friends. Is everyone here quite mad? Mistaken identities abound, as one bewildering day in Ephesus makes for a madcap adventure on the stage.
In Lewis Carroll’s most beloved fantasy universe, this version was originally produced and later revived on Broadway, in this most successful dramatic version of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass: a journey into a world of complete illusion, in high comedy and slap-stick comedy.
