CLUE RETRO PERFORMS
FINAL SHOWS THIS WEEKEND
Ulrich as Colonel Mustard (right) in 50’s version
It’s been a “long haul”, as Mr. Boddy would put it, but
this weekend marks the final three shows of a sevenmonth project that was Clue.
The idea started during auditions, when director Aleta
Watton remarked how she had more than enough
actors at auditions for two casts for Clue. She also
noticed that about half of those auditioning
were older adults that would work well for a
50’s based show, and about half were younger adults and college students that wouldn’t
necessarily fit a 50’s style production.
The resulting proposal to the LTCT Board of
Directors was a dual show, one being a 50’s
original script and one being slightly adapted
to the 80’s. The plan was that the “Retro”
cast would work backstage roles for the
“Traditional” cast, and then the traditional
cast would flip and work support roles for the
“Retro” cast.
The plan was not
without its bumps,
as schedules became tight for both
actors and support
roles alike and
adjustments had
to be made, but for
the most part the
plan was a success. Actors such as Tracy Ulrich, who performed
Colonel Mustard in the spring 50’s show and Chris
Heinz, who played the Cop for Ulrich’s Mustard,
switched roles.
This is just one example of many of how these two
shows and casts worked together, truly showing what
Little Traverse Civic Theatre is all about; collaboration, good theatre and dedication to the arts in Northern Michigan!
Don’t forget; LTCT NEEDS YOU!
There are lots of volunteer
opportunities for this upcoming
2013-2014 season.
