None of the Above by Jenny Lyn Bader

February 9th, 10th, 16th, and 17th at 8pm

A romantic comedy, Jenny Lyn Bader’s None of the Above tells the story of the relationship between Jamie, a spirited, upper-class private school teenager, and her brilliant SAT tutor, who has worked himself up from a small town in rural New York. In the beginning, Clark regards Jamie as shallow and egocentric, and Jamie regards Clark as socially awkward and insensitive to her personal difficulties. Over a period of six months, though, tutor and pupil develop a relationship of understanding as they work to accomplish the goal of earning Jamie at least a 1600 on her SAT.

Directed by Krys Bailey and starring Mickey Lay and Shelby Lauren Smith

Improv-Getting Out Of Your Head / Organic Initiations w. Rich Talarico

February 23rd at 7pm

When an improviser says “I was in my head up there…” They really mean they were in their LEFT brain on stage. And, what we want is to be in our RIGHT brain when we are improvising. Thinking v. Emotion. Discovery v. Invention. This evening of exercises will get players to focus on present-tense moment-to-moment engagement, playing from their strong emotional core, where they are able to discover WHO and WHERE at the outset of the scene. By tending to the WHO and WHERE in the initiations, players will discover organic games (WHATS) and set themselves up for stronger/longer scene work.

Donate to Le Chat Noir:

Thank you for all your support while our theatre has been closed.  We are a small, family run theatre that operates on our love of performance and a profusion of creativity, but also our ticket sales. In an effort to do our part to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we suspended all of our performances starting in April 2020. We reopened in July 2020 with extremely limited programming and capacity to allow us to continue safe practices during this unpredictable time. Please keep an eye on this events page and sign up for our newsletter to hear about all of our upcoming events! As we work towards regaining our programming, please be patient with us; and any support is immensely appreciated. We miss you all terribly and can’t wait to entertain you again!
