We'll open our 57th season this coming summer with a return of one of our biggest hits ever! We first presented JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT back in 1995 and then revived it in 2009 with both productions selling out to full houses.
Long-time LLT alumni Wess Hughes will be back once again to direct this spectacular musical, and Jonathan McKenzie will also be returning for his third run in the title role of 'Joseph'
Auditions for all other parts will be held at our downtown Arabian Theatre on June 5-6 at 7pm, and rehearsals will run three nights a week in June and four nights a week in July.
The production will feature a huge cast of 30 adults (with high school and college ages included in the adult roles) and 30 students (of elementary and junior high ages).
Shane Cockrell will be the musical director, Coco Caldwell will serve as the choreographer and
Laura Cooley will be the assistant director.

America's favorite comedy writer based this on his own life as a 1930s Brooklyn teen. Coming of age may not be easy - but it sure can be funny! The three things always on his mind? Girls, Yankees baseball, and becoming a comedy writer!
This funny play is not only Simon's greatest, but also his most moving. As a critic said, "I laughed, then I cried, then I laughed again because I cried."

A deliciously hilarious show about a dizzy group of actors staging a new comedy - but they just can't get their "act" together. Mix in lots of slamming doors with offstage romance and intrigue, and you have what's called the "funniest farce ever written."
First you see them acting the show ON the stage, but then the set turns and you see what's going on BEHIND the scenes - and that's even crazier!
SILENT MOVIE SPECTACLE!!!

NEW THIS SEASON - A SILENT MOVIE NIGHT! The Arabian Theatre's opening day was in April 1927. Our recent 90th birthday party was so enjoyable, we've decided to make it an annual event - and admission is included as a FREE BONUS for our season ticket holders!
We'll have another 1920's costume party (costumes optional) showing Charlie Chaplin's masterful comedy THE GOLD RUSH. His hilariously famous "Little Tramp" is a gold prospector that becomes trapped in a deserted cabin during a snowstorm, and it features the comedian's most beloved bits and silliest moments. It's on the American Film Institute's "100 Greatest Movies" list. WHAT A FUN NIGHT!
