Love Letters by A R Gurney


Limelight Theatre is proud to present “Love Letters” by A.J. Gurney, which tells the story of the romantic attachment between two Americans, Andrew and Melissa, from their childhood school days and for the next fifty years of their lives.

The story is told through the letters and postcards that they exchanged throughout that period. Both were born into wealth and position. Andrew is from a close family that live the American dream. Melissa, on the other hand, is from a somewhat dysfunctional family. Their bond with each other, however, remains strong and they ultimately become involved in a brief affair together. But it was all too late. Andrew’s last letter eloquently expresses how much they meant to each other. Though physically apart, they were spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Over the season this will be performed by several “couples” which will provide a different experience each night. Danny Clenott, Yvonne Way, Lilla Csorgo, Ashley Rogers and Barbara Barr are the cast.

To be performed in the newly refurbished black box theatre facilities of the Carterton Events Centre. Tickets are just $20 from Eventfinda.

Wairarapa One Act Festival

Limelight Theatre is proud to host the 2020 Wairarapa One Act Festival “Little Acts”, this is an ideal chance to practice your craft in a supportive atmosphere, with a positive environment for young and new theatre crafters to develop. A chance for mixing with adults and young people, a chance to learn off each other and work together. Productions that incorporate music and dance are eligible. As are first time directors, school groups and unpublished works. Projects from drama class projects can be entered and make great theatre. 

 

Opportunities for Directors

Limelight is assessing options for next year’s programme of full length plays. We currently have reservations at Carterton Events Centre for 3 production seasons:
8th March to 22nd March
21st June to 5th July
21st September to 4th October

We are keeping the March and September seasons open, to give directors looking for somewhere to produce a play, the opportunity to fill these slots. The June/July season is currently allocated, pending casting, but could also be available should we be unable to cast the proposed play.

If you, or anyone you know, is keen to produce a particular play, but has nowhere to perform it yet, then please contact Margaret on info@limelight.org.nz or call or text her on 027 599 9609.

We will want to know details of the proposed play (Title, Author, synopsis, cast requirements, set, lighting and effects required) and a brief summary of your directing experience.

New directors might be asked to accept mentoring from an experienced director.
