Director’s Notes

Lettice and Lovage is funny and wacky with a sneaky heart. This is no surprise when you realize that the part of Lettice was written for Maggie Smith. But these qualities were secondary to why I was attracted to the show. The theme of the stories we tell, both of ourselves and our history, really resonated with me. In my day job, I work for the Office of Historic Alexandria, telling stories from history across our different museums. While thankfully we have more interesting stories than Fustian House, I know the struggle of telling interesting but true histories while managing the expectations of guests. The stories we tell about our past directly impact our present, and future. And this play really gets at the heart of this, as well as the importance of preserving the past.

The other fantastic element of this play is Lotte and Lettice’s relationship. This is a play that focuses on two women without a man in the middle, which is rare. They are also fascinating people who see the deficiencies in their own lives in each other’s strengths. On the surface they are the most unlikely of friends. But the growth of their relationship gets at an element of how people connect in real life.

Enjoy our trip to the intersection of theatre, history and the lives of two very interesting women!

LTA COVID Pandemic Health and Safety Standards

LTA will continue to follow all current health and safety standards set by governmental authorities while the COVID pandemic continues, and we will maintain our full participation in the ALX Promise program sponsored by the Alexandria Health Department and Visit Alexandria. Starting September 1, 2022, LTA will no longer require proof of COVID vaccination or PCR testing (if not vaccinated), for audience admission to our facility, and we will no longer be holding out every third seat for social distancing. However, we will still be requiring wearing a mask indoors, including during a performance. Proof of full vaccination, including boosters, against COVID is required for all cast, crew, volunteers and staff, and for those auditioning at the Little Theatre of Alexandria. This may, hopefully, change later in the season.

Meet the Crew (in alphabetical order)

Hilary Adams (Dialect Coach) is thrilled to make her first credit of 2023 this production of Lettice and Lovage. She is so grateful to Juli Tarabek Blacker for believing in her capabilities as an English dialect coach (all those years of watching Acorn Antiques, Absolutely Fabulous and Sherlock were worth it!) and to this phenomenal cast for making this undertaking a true labor of love. You can catch Hilary next co-producing Mary Stuart, which opens in April. Enjoy the show!

Kirstin Apker (Set Decoration) has filled numerous backstage roles at LTA, including props designer (Rumors, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, The Producers WATCH Award, The Nance — LTA Award, Legally Blonde, Key for Two, Laughing Stock), set decorator (Design for Murder, Legally Blonde, Steel Magnolias — WATCH Award), assistant stage manager (Something Rotten!, A Party to Murder, Plaza Suite, Sweeney Todd) and artistic painter (Heaven Can Wait).

Many thanks to the cast and crew for helping to bring this show to life. Extra thanks to James, who was willing to come play this time.

She was previously WATCH nominated for The Hunchback of Notre Dame (TAP).

Enjoy the show!

Kira Hogan (Co-Stage Manager) is excited to be back at LTA for her first show since pre-pandemic and is delighted to be working with this incredibly talented cast and crew.

She is currently the Chairman of LTA’s Awards Steering Committee, Adjudication Coordinator for the WATCH Awards program and a Girl Scout leader for her daughter’s troop. Special thanks to her husband, Patrick, and her daughter, Riley, for their patience and unwavering support.

Ramah Johnson (Co-Stage Manager) is back for another round at LTA after stage managing Newsies (TAP). She has previously stage managed for Bright Star (LTA) and The Drowsy Chaperone (SMP) and assisted on Prelude to a Kiss (LTA). Ramah would like to thank her partner, David, and daughters, Kendall and Casey, for their enthusiasm watching rehearsal videos and all the love and support!

Chanel Lancaster (Hair and Makeup Design) last designed hair for LTA’s Bright Star. She also did hair and makeup for Wait Until Dark (LTA), The Bluest Eye (DS) and The Revolutionists (LTA). Chanel would like to thank the Lettice and Lovage cast and crew for this wonderful opportunity. Thanks most of all to her husband, Austin, for all his love and support.

Joan Lawrence (Costume Design) is thrilled to be working with Juli again, having costumed Guinea Pig Apocalypse in LTA and TAP’s 2022 Evening of One Acts. She has designed costumes for many community theaters and schools in the DC area.

Also, Manuel is the leader of instrumental contemporary jazz fusion projects that had been featured in the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Manuel is excited for his first show at LTA.

Dan Remmers (Master Carpenter) is glad to be back working in his home theater, with his last LTA production being The Producers in 2019. His most recent sets were Twigs and Bone (Nu Sass) and Proof (Peter’s Alley).

12

Meet the Crew

sheri ratick stroud (Co-Producer) is excited to be back at LTA after a 40-year hiatus. At that time, she was seen onstage in the play Auntie Mame. Sheri has a degree in theatre and has acted, directed and produced around the DMV. Her show Agnes of God (DS) won Best Production and Best Director from ACT. Her film production company, Wonder Pictures, was formed in 2010 and has garnered numerous awards at film festivals. But theatre is her passion, and she is beyond thrilled to be back at LTA.

Griffin Voltmann (Co-Producer) is thrilled to make his debut producing a mainstage show for LTA. He would like to thank the cast and crew for all their hard work enlarging, enlivening and enlightening, and his wife, Hilary, for her unfailing love and support.

Mona Wargo (Set Painting) is a multiple award-winning crew chief, having won awards from both LTA and WATCH. She has been painting theater sets since 1998. Mona has painted for four theaters in the DMV, including DS, FP (now CCDC) and ACCT, as well as LTA. She continues to paint sets, lead and mentor crew, and teach painting classes.

Robin Worthington (Wardrobe Coordinator) has loved providing wardrobe services in collaboration with costumers to many LTA and some ACCT productions during the past 16 years. She couldn’t have had so much fun without her wonderful crew of volunteer dressers, who have shared the joy of helping actors change costumes when they transform into alter egos backstage, frequently several times within a play. She is thankful for her family members who care for her stage-orphan pets at home and understand her passion for playing behind the scenes in plays. Look out, Lettice and Lovage, here we go!

Russell M. Wyland (Rigging) has been an LTA member and volunteer for more than 30 years. During that time, he has worked in several capacities, including seven years as President and eight years as Governor for Production; he has also produced over 25 shows. However, his first love is rigging, the art of masking the stage with drapes and making things fly from above and travel across the stage.

The Council of the Little Theatre of Alexandria is a group of dedicated members who support financial projects for the theatre and provide numerous social events with dinners, receptions, and other member gatherings. The Council promotes and supports volunteerism throughout the theatre to ensure continued success in all areas, i.e., backstage, front of house, box office, etc.; we also provide need-based scholarship funding to support numerous adult and youth educational programs within the theatre. The Council is proud to sponsor the Shakespeare Garden which has become a community favorite with many stopping in just to relax and “waste my time in it.”
