Director Applications Open for She Loves Me!

The Livingston Theatre Company is now accepting applications to direct our second main-stage production of the season, She Loves Me.

Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don't see eye to eye. After both respond to a "lonely hearts advertisement" in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves... and of all the twists and turns along the way!

Interested applicants must reach out to the Artistic Director and Managing Director no later than October 11th at 11:59pm. Please send your expression of interest to info@rultc.org for further instructions

Between The Notes: A Sondheim Score Study

The Livingston Theatre Company will be hosting the first of our “Between the Notes” workshops. To tie in with the first show of our 2019-2020 season, Sweeney Todd, this first event will be a Score Study Workshop focusing on the music of Stephen Sondheim.

Come out and learn what it takes to understand and teach the musical stylings of the Broadway legend known for his lyrical mastery, modern use of harmony, and speech imitating songs. Lead by current and former music directors from The LTC, this workshop will take a look at the various elements and challenges of a Sondheim score by using Into the Woods as an example and will also go through the process of teaching works of this length and difficulty in a music directing position.

When: Thursday, Sep. 26th at 6:30pm

Where: Marryott Music Building Room 118, at Mason Gross School of the Arts

This workshop will last approximately 1.5 hours including a Question & Answer period with our experienced musical staff. For more information or questions, feel free to reach out to our Music Coordinator, Kira Harris, or our Artistic Director, David Dizdari, by emailing music@rultc.org. We hope to see you there!

Call to Audition: Sweeney Todd

The Livingston Theatre Company invites you to audition for their first mainstage production, Sweeney Todd, with music and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim and book written by Hugh Wheeler. The LTC’s Sweeney Todd will be directed by Caleb Barron.

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!
