KWLT salutes the cast and crew of Poona the Fuckdog and Other Plays for Children

By on

KWLT is incredibly proud of the cast and crew of Poona for a hugely successful run. We entered Poona for Out of Festival adjudication, which means that the travelling adjudicator saw and assessed the show, but we did not submit this year's show for consideration to enter the Festival in March.

Now, in the wake of the Western Ontario Drama League general meeting, we want to congratulate them for such a fantastic showing at the awards presentation.  

The Travelling Adjudicator, Sandy Macdonald, made the following awards:

Auditions: March Madness 2016

March Madness is an annual theatrical competition hosted by the Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre (KWLT). Production teams are given a short script one night, audition their actors the next day, and then perform a week later. It’s a night of theatrical mayhem, with one play seen through some very different artistic lenses.

Join this zany production as an actor. Auditions are held 12PM-4PM on March 5th. You will need to have availability during the evenings of March 5-11, plus all day on March 12.

Spotlight: Robertson Davies comes to Kitchener

By on

One major supporter of the Little Theatre movement in Canada in the early days was Robertson Davies.  His first novel (1951’s Tempest-Tost) takes a community theatre product of The Tempest as its background, affectionately satirizing some of the personalities and preoccupations of the amateur stage.  We know of two occasions when Davies visited KWLT, both in the 1940s: once at the beginning and once at the end.

Just one more night of auditions for Hunting Cockroaches!

By on

Two down, one to go. If you are interested in being a part of the next show at KWLT you should come by the theatre on this final night of auditions! Just because it is audition night doesn't mean you need to be an actor. Come by and talk to the crew to volunteer in another capacity! For all the details on the auditions themselves check the event page.
