IN MEMORY – BILL FITZPATRICK
Ladysmith Little Theatre is saying goodbye to a former board member who died June 20 2017.
Bill Fitzpatrick was on the theatre board for some time and he also started the Ladysmith Lighp.
A bon Voyage party in Bill's honour in the form of a summer picnic is being held this Sunday July 23 at 3770 Shell Beach Rd on Coffin Point. This will be a fun event with both theatre and town people who are involved in the running of events in Ladysmith.
Everyone is welcome and it is a good way to meet new people.
The event starts at 4:00 pm this Sunday. Bring some food to share for the picnic and a chair, plus something to drink. Coffee, tea and water will be provided.
Come and celebrate a life that, in many ways, transformed Ladysmith for the better and have a fun time as well.
Bruce Mason, President,
Ladysmith Little Theatre

It’s Only a Play by Terrence McNally directed by Mort Paul
Sept 21-Oct 8
It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway. The group awaiting the reviews includes the excitable playwright; the unstable director; the pill-popping leading lady; the playwright’s best friend, who passed up this production for a television series,and a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past. It’s a prime recipe for narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality—and for comedy.
Quartet by Ronald Harwood directed by Mary Lou Reside
Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a home for retired opera singers. Each year there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. Still a diva she refuses to sing. But the show must go on in this funny and poignant play by the author of Another Time, The Dresser and Interpreters..
The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith directed by Josee Duffhues
Feb 15-March 4
Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-accesses cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. Together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!
Once upon a Mattress music by Mary Rodgers and lyrics by Marshall Barer directed by Mort Paul
April-12- May 6
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab. Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar. It wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night. Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking musical spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides side-splitting shenanigans.
IN CONSIDERATION OF THE ACTORS AND AUDIENCE, LADYSMITH LITTLE THEATRE WILL NOT ALLOW ADMITTANCE TO CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE
