Tuesdays with Morrie closes tonight. Curtain is 7:00pm sharp at the Imperial Calcasieu Museum, 204 W. Sallier St., LC. We’ve had a great run at the Museum in the main Gallery. Under Joy Pace the fine space has been converted into a thrust stage setting. Lighting really has added many glows, thanks to Norman McKnight’s professional design and operation. There is plenty of foot-tapping music, and plenty of room for laughter and even a tear, or two. The setting is not realistic, but it is perhaps more fun! Tickets are $15/$10 for students. There is one intermission. Join our inspired cast and crew for one final visit with Morrie Schwartz and his beleaguered former student, Mitch Albom.
You can now buy tickets for our production of Tuesdays with Morrie on this website. Cost is $15/$10 for students. If you wish, reserve your tickets by calling 436.6275, and then, pay at the door. But, when you do that, you run the risk of losing your tickets if we have a sold-out house. That is because we release all reserved (but unclaimed) tickets 15 minutes before showtime. Showtime is 7pm, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 13-15 at Imperial Calcasieu Museum, 204 W. Sallier St. in Lake Charles. See you at the show!
For one March weekend only catch our Itinerant Theatre production of Tuesdays with Morrie, the endearing, irreverent play by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom. Thursday, Friday & Saturday, March 13, 14 & 15 at the Imperial Calcasieu Museum, 204 W. Sallier St., Lake Charles. Don’t miss it! You’ll walk away thinking and also smiling. Carolyn Woosley directs Michael Goldman and Michael Muffuletto. IT thanks ACTS of Lake Charles for the Lake Charles premier of this production and Orange Community Players for its recent production of this same case. Tickets will soon be available for purchase on this website or reserve at 337.436.6275. Cost is $15 or $10 for students. Curtain is 7:00pm.
We have some theatrical talent in this town, and it’s on display this season! Continuing this weekend and next at The Lake Charles Little Theatre is “And the Rain Came to Mayfield”, directed by IT’s own Joy Pace. The acting and set are sound, and the theatrical experience, satisfying. The play’s theme takes one by surprise. Lead actors are Cameron Scallan and Gabe Brown. Both young men pull out all stops in portraying their finely painted characters. Treat yourself to this short, intense journey to Mayfield, Mississippi 1962 in the hot summertime. Or, if you have children and enjoy Disney and musicals, don’t miss The Children Theatre Company’s “Tarzan”, on stage this weekend only at Central School. The young cast has worked months to bring this musical to life. Meanwhile, closing this weekend in Orange, Texas is “Tuesdays with Morrie”, directed by IT’s Carolyn Woosley and garnering standing ovations each night. (IT soon brings “…Morrie” to LC for one weekend only Thursday-Saturday, March 13-15.) Support local theatre this weekend! The choices are there for the taking
Carolyn W. is guest director of “Tuesdays with Morrie” which opens tomorrow, Feb. 13 at Orange Community Players, 7:37pm, 708 Division st., Orange, TX. Closing matinee: 2:37p, Feb. 23. Then, same great cast, same director brings this endearing, witty, irreverent play to Lake Charles as an Itinerant Theatre production, March 13-15 at Imperial Calcasieu Museum 204 W. Sallier St., 7pm curtain. What will be different: the shape of the stage, the proximity of the performers to audience, the lighting design (!!!) and the black angels (crew who perform in all black as spirits). Join us at both productions!
Itinerant Theatre is excited to confirm dates, times & location for Tuesdays with Morrie in Lake Charles, as 7:00pm Thursday, Friday & Saturday March 13-15 in the intimate setting of the Gibson Barham Gallery, Imperial Calcasieu Museum. Michael Goldman is Morrie; Mike Muffuletto is Mitch. Carolyn Woosley is Director, and Joy Pace & Carolyn are producers. IT’s three-night run follows close upon the heals of a 2-week run of the same at Orange Community Players in Orange, Texas, Feb. 13-23. Stay tuned! Cast & crew are hard at work to ensure that this will be a good show!
