Children's Theatre Camp Production

How to Eat Like A Child 
Directed by Sandy Slayton

June 13 - 18, 2011 at The Prizery

Here’s a day camp experience full of fun and laughter, as campers take charge of all aspects of the production, How to Eat Like A Child. Kids and parents alike will appreciate the art of being a child in sketches such as “How to Torture your Sister,” How to Beg for a Dog,” and “How to Stay Home from School.” This musical comedy is a real treat for all ages.


Race Relation Forum Planned

Halifax County Little Theatre will present the play To Kill a Mockingbird in mid-November in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the publishing of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Over the past fifty years, the novel has been credited with being one of the most influential books of all time, inspiring readers with its themes of justice and injustice, courage in the face of overwhelming opposition, and trying to understand other people by climbing in their skin and walking in it.

The director of the play, Michael Freshour, and the president of the local branch of the NAACP, Kevin Chandler, have been talking for several months about some of the more sensitive issues concerning the dramatic version of the novel, especially the racial language used in the play.


The W-O-M-E-N of Smokey Joe's Cafe

Smokey Joe’s Café:  The W-O-M-E-N 
By Becky Donner

Much has been said in lyrics and literature over the years about the power of a woman.

Perhaps no song says it better, however, than Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller’s “I’m a Woman.” 

Who can forget such classic lyrics as, “I got a twenty dollar gold piece says there ain’t nothin’ I can’t do. I can make a dress out of a feed bag, and I can make a man out of you, ‘Cause I’m a woman, W-O-M-A-N…I’ll say it again.”


Smokey Joe's Band

By Jane Sibley

In many religions and cultures, people recognize the magical, mystical, or just plain lucky characteristics that the number seven embodies.  The band that performs the intricate, demanding and high-spirited music for Little Theatre’s upcoming production of Smokey Joe’s Café proves the legends surrounding the number seven to be true.  This septet of talented musicians has been practicing together for months with the objective of presenting a fantastic show for local audiences to enjoy.

The leader of the band is Bob Thomasson.  He serves a dual role in this production as both pianist and musical director.  This play is Bob’s third foray into Little Theatre territory, and he considers himself still to be “under the tutelage of Victoria Thomasson and Raymond Crawley.”  He organized the band and says of the other musicians, “I requested their services, and, thankfully, they all accepted.”
