PAST SEASON HIGHLIGHTS
Children of Eden & Suesical Kids.
Our main stage musical, Children of Eden, was written by a very well-known writer, Stephen Schwartz, who is famous for such great shows as Wicked and Godspell. It was a visually and musically spectacular show. We used new technology, including laser lighting and video scenery to enhance the audience experience. Though the music of the show was challenging, ranging from opera to rock to gospel sounds; our amazingly talented cast performed it all perfectly! When we added the touch of terrific costumes and masks, it was truly a wonderful show that “wowed” our audiences!
Our Children’s Acting Workshop participants created the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss with their performance of Seussical Kids! Our second through eighth-grade actors did a great job of bringing the familiar characters to life with the help of creative scenery and fun-filled costumes. They spent their two weeks in our workshop learning lines, dances, songs, and teamwork. Their outstanding final performance brought their parents to their feet with a standing ovation.
The Music Man & The Music Man Jr.
Not one, but two Harold Hills wowed audiences and brought the house down in 2022. Matt Doherty, band director and activities director at Lemont High School, reprised the role of Professor Harold Hill, which he played 20 years ago while a student at LHS.
2021: Our Covid Comeback
Godspell & Wizard of Oz Jr.
When Little Mountain Community Theatre postponed its 2020 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we - along with every theatrical venue in the world - hadn't a clue what the future would hold. But we stayed positive, got creative, and came up with an outdoor solution that would circumvent almost any possible roadblocks.
We transformed Stephen Schwartz's incredible GODSPELL to work on the outdoor stage at The Forge, invited guests to bring a lawn chair, and proceded to "Sing About Love." For our Children's Workshop, we went ahead with the Wizard of Oz, Jr. in masks. No wicked virus was going to stop our fun in 2021! Please enjoy these highlights from the wonderful summer of 2021.
Mamma Mia! & Peter Pan Jr.
In 2019, we celebrated a story of friendship, acceptance, and love through our main stage production of Mamma Mia! Our Children's Acting Workshop participants put on a fabulous showing of Peter Pan Jr.
Barnum & The Lion King Jr.
Our main stage feature for 2018 took audiences on a multi-stage adventure into PT Barnum's world of humbug and flimflam while our Children's Acting Workshop participants dazzled audiences with a performance of The Lion King Jr.
