The latest stop on our review of community theatre seasons is the Charleston Light Opera Guild, which has an impressive (and challenging) season coming up, although their scheduling seems a bit... odd.
They have four big musicals on tap - one this fall, and the next three squeezed into three consecutive months in 2011. The first three will be presented at the Civic Center Little Theater, and the last one will be at the Clay Center.
Here's the rundown:
- Dreamgirls - the musical hit about a singing girl group will be staged November 5, 6, 12, 13, 14, 19 and 20, 2010.
- The Drowsy Chaperone - the musical comedy will be presented May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21, 2011. Auditions will be held in February 2011.
- Thoroughly Modern Millie - the hit Broadway musical will be presented June 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26, 2011. Auditions will be held in April 2011.
- Hairspray - the hilarious musical will be presented July 29, 30, 31, August 5, 6 and 7, 2011. Auditions will be in June 2011.
