People want to tell their story, interpret their times, write and act with beauty and truth…for the stage & before their peers. Itinerant Theatre, Inc. (IT) wants to make that possible. IT’s mission is to provide an affordable, professional forum for the performing arts so as to generate broader audiences for theatre, professional opportunities for performing artists & productions for artistically underserved communities. IT will build on its Board members’ collective experience of presenting, producing, directing, acting & writing for the theatre & other performing arts, all on a shoestring budget.
In June 2012 IT began with Bicentennial Year celebrations ”The Firsts ~ They Made a Difference”, four one-woman plays by Carolyn Woosley.
In early October 2012 IT premiered a fifth Bicentennial production, “Cleoma ~ A First” and host an evening of SWLA music with “The Magnolia Sisters”.
In November back by popular demand IT produced three one-woman plays from Woosley’s Louisiana Women: ”The Writers” (Maggie, Kate & Rosa).
December 13th IT inaugurates “The Play’s the Thing” — its play reading series of the classics — with Candida by George Bernard Shaw. Candida is Shaw’s comedy on the clash of expectations in love. Joy Pace is Director.
Stay tuned as It cultivates & showcases the talents of young & old in front of, & behind, the curtain.
