Our 60th Anniversary Season!

HCLT 2016 season2

 

Halifax County Little Theatre is 60 years strong! Since 1955, HCLT has been a vital part of our community, performing in elementary school gyms, the high school auditorium, various outdoor locations, restaurants, and for the past 10 years in the beautiful Chastain Theatre at The Prizery. For its 2015-2016 season, HCLT will showcase the Power of Theater with three productions that educate, enlighten, and entertain.

 

The November season opener will be a joint production with The Prizery in honor of The Prizery’s 10th Anniversary. HCLT and The Prizery will work together to bring back the first show produced in the theater: Alan Menken's musical version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. This holiday classic is a must-see tradition with a large cast, haunting music, and a story that inspires.  Director Chris Jones is excited to begin work; auditions are set for August 17 and 24 at 7:00 pm at The Prizery.  Director Chris Jones is looking for actors and singers of all ages to fill this large cast of characters. Limited roles are available for children age 8 and older, including Tiny Tim, angels, and ensemble parts, and many roles are available for older children, teens and adults.  Those auditioning are asked to be prepared to sing 16 bars of a song of their choice. Rehearsals begin August 31

 

In February, Becky Donner will direct a powerful piece that showcases a turbulent moment in American history. Four Little Girls: Birmingham 1963 brings into focus the realities of the Civil Rights movement by telling the stories of the four girls America mourned. As these four girls share their everyday lives, the audience will come to know these girls as young people with hopes and dreams and names.  This moving drama hopes to bring the community together in a dialogue of peace and respect.

 

Finally, for HCLT's spring production, they are very excited to bring SHREK THE MUSICAL to the stage! Directed by Kasey Rising, this Broadway adaptation will bring great entertainment for the entire community. Adapted from the movie version, this play has all the fantastic characters you remember: Lord Farquad, Princess Fiona, Donkey, Pinocchio, The Gingerbread Man, and many more. Everyone loves this ogre! The music is joyous, and the jokes will keep the theatre full of laughter.

 

HCLT is proud to have been a part of Halifax County life for 60 years. They look forward to many more years of fostering a love for the arts, providing creative opportunities for young and old, and bringing great stories to life on stage. Community support is vital to these efforts in the form of volunteers, financial contributions, and attendance at productions. Season brochures will be available in just a few weeks.

HCLT is proud to present scholarships each year to deserving high school graduates who have worked with us during their high school careers. This scholarship is funded through concessions sales and 50/50 raffles at our productions. This year's recipients of the Dot Crews Memorial Scholarship is Christian Roach. Christian began his experiences on stage in our very first show produced at The Prizery: A Christmas Carol. SInce then, he's been involved with one production or another just about nonstop. He is  passionate about performing, and plans to continue working towards an acting career as a freshman at NYU this fall. 

HCLT presented an Honorarium to Emily Hansen,  another talented young actress who has participated in several of our productions. Emily plans to continue her education, studying to be a nurse pratitioner.

For the first time this year, HCLT honored a student who has worked with us throughut his high school career, but is not going ot college right away. Instead, Michael Berry will be joining the Navy. We adopted Michael Berry as our "Hometown Hero." When he leaves for basic training, we'll send care packages to him to show our appreciation for his service to America.

Volunteer!

In the Community

  • HCLT in the Community
    HCLT is proud to contribute in many ways to the good of our community. For many years, we have awarded scholarships to several graduating seniors through the Dot Crews Memorial Scholarship Fund. All money we make from the sale of concessions at every production goes into this fund. Traditionally, we award multiple scholarships yearly, based on applications which can be found in the guidance department at HCHS. Students who have participated in HCLT productions and HCHS productions, both on stage and back stage, are encouraged to apply.
