Sundays Without Scenery series continues in April.
County Community Theater, the resident theater company of Damariscotta’s
Lincoln Theater, is pleased to announce its new series "Sundays Without
Scenery: Actors, A Script, and Your Imagination.” "Sundays Without Scenery,”
which will usually take place on the final Sunday of each month, will offer a reading of a contemporary play,
which may or may not go on to become a full scale production at the
theater. The actors will have rehearsed,
a stage manager will set the scene, and the audience's imagination will fill
in the rest as they listen to the spoken text. LCCT’s goal is to provide opportunities for more actors and directors to
"hit the boards” without requiring our hard-working but limited stage crew to
have the responsibility of mounting each piece as a fully-staged production.
Each reading will be followed by a "talk-back” with the actors and the director
to allow discussion of the play and to assess interest in whether we might pursue
a full-scale production.
Sunday, April 19 @ 2 and 7 PM
Grey Gardens, the award winning musical, under the direction of Aaron Robinson, will be our next Sunday without Scenery offering with two performances on Sunday April 19 at 2 pm and 7 pm.
