The Rome Little Theatre has enjoyed their return to the stage at the Historic DeSoto Theatre in downtown Rome. Auditions were held early last week for the first show of the 2021-2022 season, themed “Together Again”. The show, “The Marvelous Wonderettes” is slated to take the stage August 20th thru 29th. Auditions will be held in July for a couple of roles in the second show of the season, Ken Ludwig’s “Leading Ladies”. This is a show that was supposed to have been part of the 2019-2020 season, but was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Some of the original cast members will be part of this show, according to Chris Davidson, RLT’s Executive Director, who adds that two more actors are needed to fill a male and a female role; auditions are set for July 12th. Details are available online at www.romelittletheatre.com or via the RLT’s Facebook page. Show dates are October 1st thru 10th.
Special events will be held in addition to mainstage shows as part of the RLT 2021-2022 season, which will conclude next May with “The Wizard of Oz”. Visit the website for complete information.
The RLT Academy Summer Workshop for local students that have completed grades 1-12 will take place next week at the DeSoto.
Davidson encourages the public to mark their calendars and plan to attend a Homecoming and Open House at the theatre set for July 31st.
