Either way (or even if you are wondering, “What is she talking about now?”), get ready for a season full of flights of fancy and imagination.  Hot off the presses, the Sumter Little Theatre has just released its 2013-14 Season Schedule–and it looks as though it’s going to be a very good year for Sumter’s talented troupe:

The beloved story of a lonely little prince on a planet of his own, Saint-Exupery’s timeless and magical tale returns to SLT to delight audiences of all ages. Inspired by events in the French aviator-author’s own life and made magical by a vivid imagination, The Little Prince is a joy.

The-Old-SettlerFebruary 6-9 and 13-16, 2014
Written by John Henry Redwood

Set in Harlem in the 1930’s, The Old Settler brings us a story of sisters whose lives are changed by the arrival of a new man.  The idea of being an “old settler” is intolerable to Elizabeth, for good reason. . .and she has to find out if this is really her last chance.

Dramatized by Joseph Robinette
Adapted from the story by C. S. Lewis

Join Susan, Peter, Edmund and Lucy as they venture into the incredible and fantastic world of Narnia!  Filled with characters that challenge or help them and an exciting story of strength, determination and responsibility, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is truly magical.

The-39-StepsMay 15-18 and 22-25, 2014
Written by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan

This thrilling adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie will test the skills of four actors, who portray a myriad of characters.  Thrilling 20th century film noir types populate a spine-tingling story of intrigue, suspense and romance. The action will keep you on the very edge of your seat!

For more information, please check the SLT website, or call (803) 775-2150.  And remember that even if you’ve never trodden the boards in your life (and furthermore, you don’t intend to!), this is still a tremendous opportunity to do some rewarding volunteer work and make a lot of new friends.  If you can sew, hammer a nail in, draw a straight line, organize props, or would love to mingle with the public as an usher–it doesn’t matter where your talent lies, the Sumter Little Theatre can probably find a place for you!

A printable online season brochure is also available, complete with pricing and membership information.  (Please remember, the Sumter Little Theatre reserves the right to change a play that cannot be cast.)

Have a great weekend, try to stay dry, and…well, wouldn’t this be a wonderful night to head to the Sumter Opera House for a classic movie?  We’ll see you next week!
