The last year has provided so many lessons and an opportunity to reflect and discern the importance of the values already within our reach. We saw how important love and connection is to the human existence. We gained a deeper appreciation of resilience and adaptability in the face of the unexpected. Not only that, but we recognize the grit and determination of those who chose to forge a path forward when the odds were against them.
After an unorthodox season and carving out an existence in unprecedented times, we challenge that it is time to get back to normal — rather, time to get back to what matters. Join Kernersville Little Theatre as we embark on our 2021-2022 season, “Light the Way.”
We will kick off our season by welcoming you to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist.
One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream ..
In November, we continue our season in Truvy’s salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana — the go-to place for a beauty fix with a hearty side of gossip in Steel Magnolias. Along with her overeager assistant Annelle, Truvy pampers her small-town clients with hairdos, manicures and all kinds of unsolicited advice.
Anybody who’s anybody is a regular: There’s the doting M’Lynn and her soon-to-be-married daughter, Shelby, the moody Ouiser and the well-to-do widow, Clairee. Through witty banter and wisecracks, this hodgepodge group of women form friendships as strong as steel, which they are forced to lean on when tragedy strikes.
Next up is our annual Bring a Book to Life Production. Sherlock Holmes is missing, and the streets of London are awash with crime. Who will save the day? The Baker Street Irregulars — a gang of street kids hired by Sherlock himself to help solve cases.
Now they must band together to prove not only that Sherlock is not dead but also to find the mayor’s missing daughter, untangle a murder mystery from their own past, and face the masked criminal mastermind behind it all — a bandit who just may be the brilliant evil Moriarty, the man who killed Sherlock himself! Can a group of orphans, pickpockets, inventors and artists rescue the people of London? The game is afoot!
And last but not least, the third time is the charm! Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®- nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost.
Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past — and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion.
