Summer Youth Production

Bridge to Teribithia

A Play with Music by
Katherine Paterson and Stephanie S. Tolan
Music by Steve Liebman
July 24-26, 2014 - 7:30 p.m.
July 27, 2014 - 2:30 p.m.
This powerful adaptation focuses the humor, warmth and emotional intensity of Katherine Paterson's Newbery Award winning novel. Jesse, alienated from the pragmatism of his family and rural Virginia culture, draws and dreams of becoming something special. Leslie, the new girl from the city and the ultimate outsider, opens a world of imagination, art and literature for him. Together they create Terabithia, a fantasy kingdom where they are safe from those who don't understand them. Their friendship grows as Jesse's world expands. When tragedy strikes, the strength gained in Terabithia takes Jesse forward on his own and lets him share the magic of his dreams.

Ticket Information

audition notice

Auditions for the first show of BLT's 74th season, King O' The Moon by Tom Dudzick will be held on Sunday and Monday, August 17-18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Butler Little Theatre. The play is a sequel to Dudzick's Over the Tavern, which continues the funny and poignant story of the Pazinksi family. Set in 1969 Buffalo, New York, the cast includes three males in their early 20's, one male in his 50's, two females in their early-mid 20's, and one female who is in her 50's. No prepared readings are necessary. Show run dates are October 3-5 and 7-11, 2014. Jerry Johnston, who directed Over the Tavern at BLT in 2005, returns as Director, with Karen O'Donnell as Producer.

The Stone House, an original one-act play by Kevin Lukacs, will be presented by the BLT Group at The Old Stone House, located at the intersection of Routes 8, 173 and 528, approximately 12 miles north of Butler. Show dates are August 29-31, September 5-7 and September 12-14, 2014. The play will be directed by Dustin Furman and produced by Connie Donovan.

Set in Butler County in 1836, this comedy tells the story of American soldier Jack returning home from service in Florida. Jack makes a new friend in the traveling English gentleman, Sir Basil, and the two attend a mysterious show that evening. The star crossed night is fated to bring romance, hilarity, danger, and a rather hefty piece of stove wood. How will the story end for our local hero?

BLT will once again join the North Side Cemetary Association and the Butler County Historical Society for the Echoes From Our Past Historic Cemetery Walk, scheduled for September 27-28, 2014. Tour times are 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday and are approx. 1.5 hours. A limited number of tickets may be purchased at www.butlerhistory.com or at the Historical Society Office from August 20-September 24. $14.00 for the general public, $10.00 for BLT season ticket holders.

This year we will be remembering six distinguished ancestors of Butler County: Captain Ira McJunkin, Thomas Rainey Hoon, Rolland Lee Spaide, Thomas Wharton "T.W." Phillips, Bertha Laing Wise, and Jane Kearns Potts. Through vignettes, actors will portray these ladies and gentlemen for groups of guests as they stroll through the cemetery grounds.
