Trying to get the feel of their Diva status are the women of “BEEHIVE:  The 60’s Rock Musical.” Little Theatre’s spring musical opens on April 25, and patrons are encouraged to purchase their tickets early by calling The Prizery at 572-8339.  Rehearsing are Vecentia Williams, Kelly Worley, Carolyn Dunn, Victoria Palmer, Cecil Hazelwood, Tasha Dyer, Ashley White, and Sharron Garrett. 
Everyone has heard of Clark Kent, a “mild-mannered reporter by day for a great metropolitan newspaper” who can turn into Superman in a moment’s notice. But there are women amongst our community who are also living a double life. Who are they, and how does a BEEHIVE fit into their lives?

Paul Streeter, Sandy Slayton and Jeremy Duffer sharpen up their swordplay skills for the opening of The Complete World of Sports (Abridged), opening Friday, Feb. 21. The show is very physical and comic, and with all the props, someone might be put on the bench with an injury! Tickets are on sale now at HCLT.org and at The Prizery box office, 572-8229
As the old adage goes, ‘success is ninety-nine percent preparation and one percent perspiration’. The same could be said about acting. It takes a great deal of preparation, mixed with a little bit of perspiration, to make a stage performance worthy of a top prize.

Nothing incomplete in the Complete World of Sports

Whether you love them or hate them, no one can deny that sports occupy a large amount of television time. There are preview shows, the sporting events themselves, postgame wrap-up shows, and morning sports talk shows.

HCLT bringing back Beehive

Little Theatre doesn’t bring many shows back for a revival, and when they do, it’s because the show was a huge hit or there are a lot of requests to see it again. And that’s exactly the case with BEEHIVE: The 60’s Rock Musical! It’s coming back, and auditions are just around the corner. Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 13 and 14, auditions will be held at The Prizery at 6:30.
