Studio X: Griffs Got Talent

Whaaaat? A variety show a week after the musical?! Crazy, right?

But this is no joke! Studio X: Griffs Got Talent is tomorrow at 8pm in Palisano! There will be food, drinks, and you get to watch your LT friends be judged on their talent, all in good fun of course! Highlights include the presentation of the 4th Annual Eltee Awards, the announcement of the 2014-2015 E-board, and a hearty goodbye to the seniors! We’ll see you there!

Welcome Back to a Clean Clubroom!

Little Theatre is back for another year and has a lot in store for the 2013-2014 season!

To start things off, we did some housekeeping in the clubroom and the theatre to make finding things a whole lot easier. Let’s just say we filled a number of dumpsters along the way…

The start of the semester also brought in a number of new faces at our General Body Meeting on August 28th.

We are very excited to see what the new members have to offer and we can already tell that they will be an invaluable asset to the club!

LT invites everyone to come visit us during the week in the clubroom to say “Hi!”, hang out, or find out what we’re all about.
