Dear Theater at Latitude 58 Families,

We hope you are enjoying the winter break and a little time off between fall and spring productions.  Several of you have been asking about the audition schedule for our spring shows and January will be here before you know it!  As you can see from our attached season poster, we’ll be doing an Intro to Theater workshop and 2 plays.  We are pleased to announce that Janice Hurley will be teaching our Intro workshop, David Brooks will direct The Phantom Tollbooth, and Karen Allen will direct She Kills Monsters.  All rehearsals and workshops will take place in the Mendenhall Mall Annex (enter through the State Farm entrance and look for signs to the left) and performances will take place at McPhetres Hall downtown at Holy Trinity Church.  Here are the details:
