A dramatic, rigorous, often hilarious, and deeply personal journey examining many of the evasions and unquestioned assumptions that underly some of our most cherished ideas about ourselves and others.  Abby, acclaimed Vermont performer seen in such LNT shows as Judevine and Pride & Prejudice,  is an American with French-Canadian roots who immigrates to Canada, a century after her great-grandparents immigrated in the opposite direction.
She has questions:
What does “francophone” mean?  What’s the deal with the queen?  Why is Jack Kerouac the only Franco-American anyone’s ever heard of? Is Céline Dion a witch?  Find out!

July and August - it's Theater FOR Kids BY Kids time!
During this part of the summer, it's all about our youth programs! Camps, production camps, technical design concentrations, and our two-week musical theater intensive.

in 2022, look for our intermediate students in their production of Pushing Up The Sky on July 1 (directed by Erin Galligan Baldwin). Then, it's the fully produced musical, Frozen Jr!  mounted by our most advanced students, August 12–14th (with musical direction and choreography by Patrick Wickliffe and Taryn Noelle, the team who brought us LNT's 2019 Cabaret).

 

 

September 8–18:  BOTH EYES OPEN: The Annie Oakley Story
by Jeanne Beckwith

Lost Nation Theater commissioned this play especially for actor Maura O'Brien. (Last scene on the LNT stage as Dr. Ruth)
In this entertaining solo show, playwright Beckwith cracks open the legend to reveal the real lady and her fascinating life. Full of humor, heart-break, sharp wits, and white-knuckled determination, Oakley sets the record straight.
Defying death at least three times,  this Little Sure Shot went from the poor farm to dining with Queens and Kings, blazing her own path all the while.
And she always shot with both eyes open.

Carolyn Wesley and Nick Wheeler in LNT's 2017 production of Into The Woods  - cradling their infant child, under a treephoto by Robert EddyOctober 6-23 - Stephen Sondheim Revue

music & by Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein & Stephen Sondheim, Jules Styne & Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Sondheim & Mary Rodgers, George Lapine, Hal Prince, etc

We are not yet allowed to announce the specific title, but the music, stories, and dance of Stephen Sondheim will soar (side by side) on the LNT Stage once again in this fabulous music revue featuring some of the best of the multi-Tony-Winner's work. Songs from such hit shows as Company, Little Night Music, Gypsy, Into the Woods, West Side Story and more are featured. Sondheim is one of the best at telling stories and voicing, with acerbic wit, style, and intricate wordplay, what the characters in his plays and musicals are striving for. He is a consummate storyteller and we are excited to bring the Theater Legend's work to the LNT Stage once again.
