First Show of the 2013 Season a Hit

The BLT has once again demonstrated the level of talent that graces its stage. Director Sam Estrada leads his cast in a hilarious comedy that takes advantage of the character-creating gifts of all of the actors who have brought this modern American theatre classic to life to welcome in the new season. Larry Shue’s The Foreigner will continue for two weekends, with performances February 22, 23, 24, March 1, 2, and 3. It promised to be a popular ticket, so make sure you do not miss this latest offering of our area’s leading producer of live theater.

Auditions for Henley Play; Welcome, Actors


Auditions for the next play, the second in the 2013 Baytown Little Theater season, Beth Henley’s dark family comedy The Wake of Jamey Foster, will take place Sunday, February 17, and Monday, February 18, at  7:00 PM, at the theater’s location, 4328 Hugh Echols Blvd. Director Fred White will be looking for a cast of 3 males and 4 females to bring Henley’s “Southern sense of the grotesque and absurd as experienced in daily existence” to life.

Henley was recently represented on the BLT stage with a second production of her play Crimes of the Heart, in the 2010 season,  first produced at BLT in 1996. For more details about the upcoming production, see information at this link.

New BLT Video Hits YouTube. Please View and Share

This past Wednesday night, over 40 active BLT members met at the theater to help us put together a video that describes our work and mission. And it turned out pretty good for an hour and a half of rehearsal and work, a handheld consumer video camera, and a bunch of amateur filmmakers. Check it out and see what you think.

Better yet, come be a part of the cool things going on at Baytown Little Theater.
