Happy Birthday Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre

I imagine you are as surprised as we are to find out that TODAY is the official 80th Birthday of Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre.  This fact, along with many other wonderful ones that we will be sharing with you shortly, were uncovered as we plan for our 80th anniversary season.

On the night of February 24th, 1935 members of the community gathered at the YMCA in downtown Kitchener to discuss the formation of a community theatre group; by the end of the meeting an executive had been elected and plans for the first production were in motion.

Join us next Saturday February 21 at 8pm for a staged reading of a classic Vaudeville farce, A Mad Breakfast by Isabel McReynolds Gray. Directed by Adrienne Dandy.

In a boarding house, practical jokers Mr Jones and Miss Brown tell each of the Guests that wealthy visitor Mr Long is especially interested in their individual hobbies. They also tell Mr Long that the boarding house is a lunatic asylum. 

Admission is by donation. After the reading, we'll have a discussion about the play and the performance. Find the facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/800677499981505

Finding Your Conduit - Acting Workshop (The Genesius Project)

This workshop comes out of the ground-breaking research and exploratory work of Professor Leslie O’Dell, as recorded in her book The Charismatic Chameleon. A conduit can be described as the best means for you to access your creative and natural gifts, as an actor. This workshop is also good for directors to learn different ways to communicate with actors that are beneficial to the production.

KWLT is proud to host Write Before Valentine's Day!

The fine folks at 30 Seconds to Improv are putting on their first show, and we are hosting! Write Before Valentine's Day is an improv show that uses written material provided by the audience to launch comedic improvised scenes. The show will be presented ONE NIGHT ONLY at the Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre. They are kindly running this show as a pay-what-you-can fundraiser for KWLT's roof replacement fund.

Wait, you haven't heard of 30 Seconds to Improv? Well, that's about to change. The group behind the project, is made up of experienced improvisors who have performed locally for many years. They hope to engage both the local writing and theatre scenes in one show held on Valentine's Eve (which should be a thing, but isn't really yet.)

More details are available at the event's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/942989165711921/  and by clicking "Read More" below.

Message from the President: A Change in the Board of Directors

Posting on behalf of the President of Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre, an announcement about the Board of Directors:

Hi Everyone,

I’m writing today to let you know that Douglas Morton has made the difficult decision to resign from the board. For the past two and a half years, Douglas has served in the difficult position of Executive Producer and has ably served the KWLT community. Her work on behalf of KWLT has been greatly appreciated by the Board. We wish her all the best and hope that we’ll see her on stage or volunteering again soon. Thank you Douglas, for all your work and contributions to KWLT.
