Come Audition for ‘Rumors’

Hanover Little Theatre will hold auditions for “Rumors,” the third show of the 2017-18 season, at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 21 and Monday, January 22, at the playhouse, 360 Blooming Grove Road.

Michael Baker will direct the Neil Simon comedy. Just before his 10th wedding anniversary party, the Deputy Mayor of New York passes out from taking Valium after unsuccessfully trying to shoot himself in the head, and his wife is nowhere to be found. Their friends try to cover up the circumstances from arriving guests, but miscommunication and confusion fuel this Neil Simon farce. The show will run April 20-22, 26-29, 2018.

The cast features five men and five women. Adults of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to audition. The audition will feature readings from the play.

If you wish to audition, but are not available, please e-mail info@hanoverlittletheatre.com to make alternative arrangements.

Time to Get Spoiled

The focus on family for HLT’s 69th season continues with the family-friendly musical revue Funny, You Don’t Look Like a Grandmother.

Come laugh as our cast shines a new light on modern grandmothers through humorous and heartwarming scenes. Watch and laugh as grandmothers debate what name they want to be called, their availability as babysitters and much, much more.

Tickets are on sale now. Online ticket sales are available around the clock. You can also call 717-637-5297 to reserve tickets. The show will have 8 p.m. performances on Nov. 10 and 11 as well as Nov. 16-18. There will be 2 p.m. matinees on Nov. 12 and 19.

All tickets are $15 with no fees for tickets printed at home or bought at the door. There will be a $2 charge for all phone orders and a $1 charge for any tickets delivered through the mail.

The cast for director Charlie Beard features many familiar faces. HLT regulars Sally Chase, Bonnie Raubenstine and Suzanne Williamson will be joined by Becky Wilcox as the grandmothers. Dave Zinn will play the gradfather. Mathew Barninger will play the son while the daughter will be split between Sarah Zimmermann and HLT newcomer Debbie Williams.

The theatre will once again raise funds for a local nonprofit community partner in conjunction with the show. The partner for this show is the Hanover Area Historical Society (HAHS).

The theatre will donate $2 to HAHS for every ticket sold to the Saturday, Nov. 11, performance. Sommer & O’Donnell – Attorneys at Law as well as an anonymous patron will match that donation, generating $6 for every person attending Nov. 11. Additionally, donations for HAHS will be accepted at all seven performances.

Since inaugurating this effort in November 2014, the theatre has donated nearly $6,500 to a variety of area groups.
