“Think … “Shakespeare in the Park” meets Shreck meets Monty Python meets the Muppets – only much much more!” So says the playbill on this novel addition to the GLT family of events. Family? Yes, "it is a colorful vaudeville style depiction of Greek theatre and mythology, a fun experience for the entire family."
Admission is free, but Seating is Limited. Come early… Donations welcome…
Coffee for a Buck and snacks available.

Stealing Home, now in rehearsal; Pat Cook’s very funny situation comedy. (same playwright who gave us *Those Crazy Ladies, 2014) This comedy takes place in the reception lobby of Green Meadows Funeral Home, with wacky characters in even wackier situations. The resolution turns on an event 25 years in the past. Co-directors Hal & Janina Shoemaker. Production August 5-7.
Stealing Home Cast

Greatest Generation “Auditions” Ongoing… call 434 656 3637 to be included
Now known as the Greatest Generation, the veterans and families of WWII sang and danced to the Big Band music of the 1940s. Many of the hits of this era are now in the popular American Songbook. Hop down Memory Lane with us as we prepare for a September 9-11 festival of the best music from the 40’s sung by our patriotic and romantic song stylists. This is a “Do-it-Yourself” spectacular. Musicians: choose your music, song, melody, from the “100 Greatest Popular Songs of the 1940s,” rehearse it and bring it to the stage, when you will be incorporated into the festival.
