What’s Up, LTA? Good News!

By Sara Dudley Brown, Theatre Editor

If you’ve been wondering when or if indoor theatre performances at the Little Theatre of Alexandria will be returning, wonder and worry no more. Beginning with its production in late July of Neil Simon’s Rumors, and then in September with performances of August Wilson’s Fences, LTA plans to open with current Covid-19 restrictions, including masks required for all audience members and limited seating capacity of 145. In January, however, LTA should be completely open with full capacity seating of 215.

In past years LTA did a summer musical, but because of Covid 19 restrictions that didn’t happen this year. However, good news! There will be a musical in the summer of 2022 and it’s going to be the absolutely hilarious and lauded-on-Broadway, Something Rotten!

Here is Little Theatre of Alexandria’s complete schedule as it stands now and subscription orders are open for the 2021-2022 season! For information, email their Box Office Manager, Crissy Wilke, at [email protected].

Sara Dudley Brown is the Theatre Editor of The Zebra Press. She graduated with a music degree in voice from Rollins College Conservatory of Music in Winter Park Florida. After several years of professional singing and acting (Disney World and The Kenley Theatres as well as voice-over and film here in the DMV area), trying and failing miserably at being Barbra Streisand (the post was already filled), Sara decided to take her lifelong love of music and the theatre to create a profession which would use everything she had learned theatrically and musically over the years—corporate event production and management. She began with department store events, working for the May Company putting on events in 18 stores, and went on to found her own corporate event management company. She recently retired after 30 years of mounting mega events internationally and domestically for some of the world’s top aviation manufacturers. Now Sara is once again using her years of theatrical work as well as her musical training to review Metro Area professional theatre productions for The Zebra Press. She thinks this is a much more sane way to live and never tires of the excitement of a theatre opening!
