If you love live theatre, Shreveport-Bossier’s performing arts scene has an unusually busy stretch of interesting offerings planned for July 2013. Shreveport Little Theatre‘s got “Company,” a musical comedy from Stephen Sondheim about a serial bachelor and his circle of friends in New York City. “Company” runs, several days per week, June 27-July 14. Marjorie Lyons Playhouse has “9 to 5,” the musical based on the 1980 film starring Dolly Parton, June 28-July 7. Just a week after “9 to 5” closes, Marjorie Lyons Playhouse will present a few stagings of “School House Rock Live,” July 12-14.
River City Repertory Theatre, Shreveport-Bossier’s professional theatre company, will be staging Edward Albee’s classic drama “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” July 3-7, at East Bank Theatre in Bossier City. Directed by local theatre icon Robert Buseick, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” will be brought to life by some of Shreveport-Bossier’s most gifted actors. It should be an incredible show.
Later in July, East Bank Theatre will also host a free, one night-only presentation of Hampstead Stage Company‘s touring production of “The Secret Garden,” 6 p.m., Wednesday, July 17.East Bank Theatre’s website appears to be down; for more information on “The Secret Garden,” call (318) 741-8310.
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, Shreveport Little Theatre and East Bank Theatre are all very different places to experience live theatre. A theatre enthusiast with a bit of spare time in the evenings could experience all three venues this July.
