With Mary Ortwein, RLT Office Manager his year our Gala is being held at the DeSoto on Saturday, June 30. We hope that many of you will be there to enjoy the festivities. Your invitations and information letters will be sent soon. Now is the time to plan on renewing memberships for next season. Don't forget that, as a member, you can receive 20% discount on an advertisement in our master program. 30 Years in the DeSoto is our theme for the upcoming 2012-2013 Season. All of us in Rome, GA, owe a huge thanks to the smart, brave group of RLT members who chose to buy the DeSoto Theatre building in 1981. Keith Finley and Joel Jones signed the contract, and after many years RLT paid off the loan. Though we no longer own the building, the DeSoto continues to be our home. So let's celebrate the 30 years we've had here, and enjoy the years ahead of us! RLT congratulations go out to our most recent Maria, Allison Cox, who is getting married to Will Dolbeer on June 23 at Berry College. Best wishes for a happy life together!

We extend sincere condolences to Tammy Childers and all of her family, on the recent death of her mother-in-law. May she rest in God's peace. Glenn Bowman is one of our RLT teens who has been involved with lots of theater in Atlanta. We miss seeing him but are glad that he's continuing to learn. Way to go, Glenn!!! Levi Burdick, who was last seen as our Count Dracula, is rehearsing for Rome Celebrity Dancing Challenge on August 18 . Have fun & break a Leg, Levi! A workday is planned for Saturday, June 16, to finish moving our set pieces and prop inventory to Broad Street. Southeastern Mills (thanks to Coni Carey) is loaning a truck to transport everything we decide to keep. As they say, "Many hands make light work", so please let Ben Peck, Tiff Magruder or Kim Dixon know if you are able to volunteer. ÂŤ

See you at the theatre!

ROME LITTLE THEATRE/HISTORIC DESOTO THEATRE FOUNDATION


he hills around Rome are alive with “The Sound of Music,” and after you have enjoyed seeing EVERY performance of this wonderful, classic musical, there are plenty of other theatre offerings nearby to keep your summer cool. We have enjoyed preparing “The Sound of Music” for your pleasure. And let’s face it, you can only take so much sunshine, and the air conditioned coolness of a dark theatre is a welcome respite from the intense Georgia heat. So come with me on a journey as we explore other theatre options all summer long “Beyond the RLT!” Next up at the DeSoto this summer will be RLT’s fourth edition of our popular musical theatre review, “Broadway Spectacular IV.” I helped cast the talent for this production and you are sure to enjoy the multitude of talented Romans who will be presenting songs and dances from past RLT shows. The show will have performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00, and Sundays at 2:30 for two weekends only (as is usual for RLT,) July 20th-29th. Please note that this is a change from the originally announced dates. Berry College and Shorter University theatre companies are both dark this summer. The Pumphouse Players in Cartersville’s Legion Theatre is a year-‘round theatre, and things are jumping as usual at the Legion. If you receive this in time, you might be able to catch the last few productions of “The Frankenstein Summer,” a play about a group of literary greats who come together to collaborate on writing the classic horror story “Frankenstein,” and it is based on historical fact. The last performances are May 18 and 19 and the play starts Darlington graduate and former faculty member, Morgan McCrary. Next up for PHP is Ken Ludwig’s hilarious backstage farce, “Moon Over Buffalo,” running June 15th-23rd. Their next summer production, “Radio TBS,” is a hilarious new Southern comedy set in a trailer park, and it will run August 16th-25th. www.pumphouseplayers.com Our northern neighbor, Calhoun Little Theatre’s summer production will be at the end of the summer, and it’s the hilarious and RLT favorite comedy “The Foreigner.” This time the production will be for one weekend only, beginning on Thursday, August 23rd, and will run Friday and Saturday August 24th and 25th, 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 26th 3:00 p.m. www.harrisartscenter.com As always, the Fabulous Fox Theatre is teeming with summer productions. By the time you read this, running May 22nd-June 10th, is the return of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical which is still running on Broadway, “Jersey Boys,” the story of the singing group “The Four Seasons.” Reba and I saw this twice the first time it was at the Fox, and I have plans to do so again this year! Don’t miss this production, but be prepared to hear a few “f bombs” dropped – after all, it is about a bunch of young guys New Jersey in the early 1960”s! Later in the summer we are all looking forward to the return of another national tour of another Tony Award-winner, Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” which holds the record for most Tonys won--12! This production comes to the Fox on July 24th-29th. Eternal teenager and amazing Olympic gymnast and singer Cathy Rigby will return to the Fox in her acclaimed production of “Peter Pan,” and you will not believe this 59-year old performer as she gyrates over the heads of the audience and sings gloriously as “the Boy Who Won’t Grow Up.” Cathy will take over the Fox August 7th-12th. Following this is the first visit ever of a recently closed Broadway hit, “The Addams Family,” based on the Charles Addams popular cartoons. The music is hilarious and we are all looking forward to this visit to Atlanta

BACKSTAGE PASS JUNE/JULY 2012

August 14th-19th. And get ready for the long-awaited return of a new production of Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s classic “The King and I” Sept. 5th-11th. What a summer! www.foxtheatre.org The Alliance Theatre is dark this summer, but we will be waiting breathlessly for the opening show of the 2012-2013 season, a new romantic comedy by Atlantan Pearl Cleage entitled “What I Learned in Paris” on September 5th. More information will follow about the Alliance’s upcoming season in the next newsletter. www.alliancetheatre.org As usual, the New American Shakespeare Tavern is continuing with their offerings of a new show each month. Finishing up on May 27th is “Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales,” and coming up this summer are “As You Like It” May 31st-July 1st (the only Shakespearean play I have been able to appear in!), to be followed by “Twelfth Night” July 5th-29th. It looks like they will be dark in August as they gear up for the completion of The Shakespeare Evolution Series: The Comedies, with their productions in September of “Measure for Measure” and “All’s Well That Ends Well” as the kickoff for their 2012-2013, season which includes The Shakespeare Evolution Series: The Tragedies. The Tavern is lots of fun with its authentic British pub menu and Irish beers, so give it a go this summer. www.shakespearetavern.com I enjoyed the last show of the Theatrical Outfit at the Balzer Theatre downtown so much, “A Wrinkle in Time,” and while there had a chat with Executive Artistic Director, Tom Key, who will be presenting a reprise of his renowned one man show, “C.S. Lewis On Stage” for one weekend only, June 8th-10th for five performances only. Tom is a force of nature and a blessing to the theatre community. I have seen this production before and it is truly amazing. www.theatricaloutfit.org (Continued on page 6)

Thank you! Wayne Jones, RLT Reading Committee Chair

Michael Hillman, Mary Walker, Nancy Dobbs

Annual Membership Meeting, cleverly disguised as a really fun evening! You will also be given a ballot to vote for two distinct things. One is our annual Roman Awards, which are given annually for excellence in all things theatrical over the past season. The other thing you will be given the privilege of voting on is our slate of shows for the 2013-14 season! If you visit romelittletheatre.com, there is a banner with much detail about each show nominated for selection. You can also actually check out one of these scripts through our office manager during business hours, if you want to peruse any of them. My suggestion is that you “do your homework” before voting, and don’t just rely on other folks opinions. The Reading Committee is excited about the slate we have presented, and we hope you take the time to look at these selections and get excited as well. «

Currently running now through July 1sth at the wonderful Horizon Theatre on Euclid Avenue in Little Five Points is the first of two world premieres this summer. This is a new comedy by Atlantans Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee called “The Waffle Palace: Scattered, Smothered and Covered 24/7/365.” Knowing these two writers and the Horizon personnel, this is sure to be a night of hilarity in a famous Southern iconic restaurant. The second world premiere is a bee bop, hip hop comedy by Atlanta’s own Thomas W. Jones II called “Sheddin’.” Jones is one of the most popular playwrights to premiere his work usually at the Horizon, and often appears in them himself. www.horizontheatre.com Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is back this summer with a stage version of the popular Academy Award-winning movie, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” This show will run July 10th-29th at the Rialto Theatre downtown. www.truecolorstheatre.org The all-musical Atlanta Lyric Theatre has got lots going on this summer. They perform at the beautifully renovated Strand Theatre on the square in Marietta, (and now the only theatre on the square.) First up is their production of “Gypsy,” running June 15th-July 1st. Then July 27th-August 12th will see their fun production of “Legally Blonde the Musical,” which had a long run on Broadway and was even filmed for MTV. In between the two for one night only on July 20th will be the Atlanta Junior Lyric Theatre’s production of “Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.” www.atlantalyrictheatre.com There are no plays or musical scheduled this summer for the Cobb Energy Centre in Marietta, but if you are interested in their concerts and children’s shows, please visit them at www.cobbenergycentre.org. After threat of shutting down like Theatre in the Square Marietta during these difficult economic times for the arts, the Georgia Shakespeare Festival is back with a full slate for this summer. They just ended their performance of Shakespeare in the Park with “The Tempest,” but upcoming are: “Much Ado About Nothing” June 21st-August 4th; “Illyria: A Twelfth Night Musical” June 6th-August 5th; Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” July 5thAugust 3rd; a musical based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen “The Emperor and the Nightingale” July 14th-August 3rd and be looking for their production of “Macbeth” in conjunction with the National Black Arts Festival October 4th-28th. Glad to see they are busy and up on the boards once again! www.gashakespeare.org A little further out in Lawrenceville, the beautiful Aurora Theatre is closing their season with an hilarious comedy centered around golf called “The Fox on the Fairway,” by Ken Ludwig of “Lend Me a Tenor” and “Moon Over Buffalo” fame. But hurry if you want to see this because the last performance is May 27th. Coming up August 2nd-September 2nd is the first show of the 2012-2013 season, the blockbuster musical comedy by Neil Simon, Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields “Sweet Charity.” Reba and I saw the last revival of this on Broadway with Christina Applegate a few years ago, and it really held up even today from the original production in the ‘60’s. www.auroratheatre.com Don’t forget that you can find out more about all of these shows, and others, including half price tickets, at www.atlantaperforms.com. Even further northeast, the Holly Theater in Dahlonega is active this summer. They list “The Sound of Music Mellow Drama” as their upcoming show May 18th-27th, but I have been unable to determine if this is the standard show we are rehearsing now and presenting soon or if it is a variation of that. I tried to call but they only have regular office hours and I haven’t been available this week. So try your luck at 706-864-3759 to get more information. The web site shows a synopsis of the actual show we are doing, so not sure where the “Mellow Drama” part in the title comes from. Their next show is Beth Henley’s comedy, “The Miss Firecracker Contest,” about a Southern beauty pageant, and it will run June 8th-24th. www.hollytheater.com Greenville, SC is one of our favorite places to visit, and the beautiful Greenville Little Theatre is always a highlight of each visit.

GLT will be presenting Meredith Willson’s classic “The Music Man” June 1st-23rd, to be followed in late summer by a production called “Shake, Rattle and Roll!” and all I could figure from the web site is that the latter show is something about Elvis. www.greenvillelittletheatre.org And as always, I end my tour with the details at the professional Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, TN, where you can see as many as four shows in one weekend! Playing now through May 26th, “Driving Miss Daisy has been extended. “The Moving of Lilla Barton,” about a pastor’s widow refusing to leave the parsonage, is running now through May 24th. The musical “Cowboys” is running again now through July 20th prior to its general release to American theatres. Opening May 18th and running through June 16th, is “Bob Gunton in Walking on Water: an Evening of Musical Theatre and Song.” Bob got his start at CCP and has starred opposite Patti Lupone in “Evita” on Broadway and is well known as the warden in the movie “The Shawshank Redemption.” Don’t miss this event! Opening May 31st-August 17th is a new comedy called “See Rock City,” about the folks at home in the south during World War II. June 7th-August 10th marks the return of the bluegrass/gospel musical, “Smoke on the Mountain” for its 19th season at CCP. And “The Music Man” will also be playing at CCP this summer, June 22-September 1st. A new musical about Ginger Rogers called “Backwards in Heels: The Ginger Musical” will open July 27th and run through the fall into November. Most exciting of all, at the end of the summer, a new Bluegrass musical comedy, “Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge” will make its debut at CCP August 23rd and will run through October 26th. The musical is written by Peter Mills and his wife Cara Reichel, a native of Rome, GA!!!! Cara was here in Rome for two summers with her Prospect Theatre Company, including performances of “The Pirates of Penzance” and “Kismet” here at the De Soto, and is the daughter of Sharon Reichel and the late Charles Reichel, dear friends of mine, and I had the pleasure of appearing in Prospect’s production of “…Pirates…” at the DeSoto! Can’t wait to see this show. So as usual, there is lots going on, so get out there and support it. And thanks for supporting “ The Sound of Music,” and live theatre here and “Beyond the RLT!” «
