In the world of little and not-so-little theatre, Ladysmith’s flag bearer will be waving the colours high this year.

Ladysmith Little Theatre is well underway in preparation for a new season featuring some spectacular productions.

Audiences looking for a laugh need to search no further than Ladysmith Little Theatre’s production of Rumours, which is being directed by Gordon McInnes, and opens March 21 and runs until April 7.

The story centres on what takes place after a self-inflicted gunshot wounds the Deputy Mayor of New York. Hilarity ensues as various guests gathered for a tenth wedding anniversary party attempt to get the story straight of what exactly happened.

On March 1 and 2, for the first time, the Theatre will also offer a spring fundraiser production of one-act plays and monologues in conjunction with Vita Theatre out of Duncan.

“It’s mostly focused on actors or members of our theatre who would like to try acting,’ says Susan Carthy, who coordinates the box office and media relations for Ladysmith Little Theatre.

“So this is a new way to get yourself on the stage and overcome some of the barriers that were maybe preventing them from doing this, so that’s why we’re focusing on one-act plays and short monologues.”
