Welcome to Little Theatre of Norfolk

Script Club

Script Club

Presented by Little Theatre of Norfolk and Peninsula Community Theatre

Script Club is like a book club for theatre lovers! We will read play scripts instead of novels. Some plays may be considered for future seasons, while others have elements limiting the ability to produce them locally.

Upcoming Scripts:

  • The Crucible by Arthur Miller
  • Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  • Rosencrantz and Gildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

Each play follows its own schedule of virtual meetings.

Is there a play you would like for us to read? Let us know at info@ltnonline.org.

THE CRUCIBLE by Arthur Miller

Facilitated by Christopher Bernhardt

The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 during the Salem witch trials. The play is a fictionalized version of the trials and tells the story of a group of young Salem women who falsely accuse other villagers of witchcraft.

ROSENCRANTZ AND GILDENSTERN ARE DEAD by Tom Stoppard

Facilitated by BA Ciccolella

Part Shakespearean tragedy, part Laurel and Hardy comedy routine, Tom Stoppard’s masterful debut play calls fate, free will, art, reality, communication, and the very constructs of theatre into question, all the while leading two most honorable, adventurous, brilliant, and inept characters on their path to their unfortunate, unavoidable, infamous fate.
