COVID-19 Response

Dear Patrons and Volunteers,

As a not-for-profit community theatre, our primary concern is always for our volunteers and audience. Life in the age of the COVID-19 virus is tumultuous and unsettling – and changing hour by hour. 

To ensure the best possible experience for everyone, The Marvelous Wonderettes will be moved to June, replacing the production of Oliver, which will be rescheduled in November 2020.

Current ticket holders for both shows do not need to do anything at this time. There are hundreds of orders that will take some time to adjust. We will contact you.

As you can imagine, these restrictions on our operation will have a significant financial impact. If you are unable to use your tickets please consider donating them back to the theatre as an in kind donation to lessen that impact.

HLT understands this situation is of great concern to everyone involved and we will communicate updates as necessary. We encourage you to keep informed of developments through official CDC (www.cdc.gov) and WHO (www.who.int) updates. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Sincerely,
Management

 
Vanessa Logsdon, Theatre Manager

The con is on! With plenty of wit, charm, and double entendres galore, the musical comedy ‘DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS’ is one enjoyably silly romp.  A couple of con men have taken to swindling the riches off of easily-seduced women in the French Riviera. Suave ladies’ man Lawrence Jameson, whose seemingly opulent lifestyle and Brit phrasing act as an enticingly posh smokescreen for his ability to romance women from their cash. Freddy Benson is a younger, less-sophisticated yet still brilliant con man who tugs on women’s heartstrings of sympathy to gain their trust. The men devise a bet: the first man to successfully swindle $50,000 from the newly-arrived “soap queen” Christine Colgate wins the right to stay in town. With rousing musical numbers, a few outrageous sequences, and, of course, goofy antics, the comedy stylings are a lively musical comedy bust-your-gut laugh-riot.
