Director Terry Thies has announced the cast for the upcoming production of “The Fourth Princess” by Geoff Bamber.
The play, a presentation of Little Theatre of Hazard, will be performed during Summer in the Park, a celebration of the Arts and Bobby Davis Park, on Saturday, June 22 at 7 p.m. Thies also announced that Letha Patterson will be the music director for the play.
This year the group will add more musical numbers to their show and that is only being made possible by Patterson having time to work with LTH this summer. Everyone in the production is very happy to have Patterson on board and are adjusting well to the additional song and dance numbers. Patterson is also running the sound effects for the show.
“The Fourth Princess” brings together actors from age 4 to age 18 to tell the story of a broke kingdom (from paying off the dowries of threeprincesses), their valiant king just home from the Crusades to discover his treasury is no more. His ever faithful Prime Minister Batac concocts an impossible task to bring the country back to greatness.
The cast of the “The Fourth Princess” includes by alphabet: Emile Adams, Dana Bush, Jonathan Counts, Mary Daniels, Alexa Davidson, Ava Dixon, Libby Doll, Mandy Engle, Connor Francis, Raegan Francis, Caitlyn Fugate, Ramsey Hall, Kelsy Howard, Madison Howard, Halle Jo Kilburn, Seth Lewis, Trey Lewis, Madison Miller, Elly Morris, Haley Patterson, Henry Sepulveda, Skyanne Slone, Brock Torres, Sarah Torres, and Lily Williams-Lucero.
The Teen Players will also present a short play, “Among Friends and Clutter” by Lindsey Price. Seth Lewis, one of our originals, is directing with assistants Connor Francis, Rebecca States and Tori Howard. The play is a series of vignettes around the lives of seven people who were in the same First Grade class. The Players in this production are: Alexa Davidson, Connor Francis, Caitlyn Fugate, Ramsey Hall, Seth Lewis, Elly Morris, Skyanne Slone, and Sarah Torres.
