About the Play
This quirky comedy is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, LOVE/SICK is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.

About the Play
Based on the hit movie, this high-energy musical has fun characters, great songs, and splashy dance numbers! Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While they make sure their boss is "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Adapted by Susan Boulanger
Peformances: Sat. Nov. 12 & Thurs. through Sat. Nov. 17-19 at 7:30pm. Matinée performances are Sat. Nov. 19, and Sun. Nov. 13 and Sun. Nov. 20 at 2pm.
The holiday season will be welcomed in with a brand new stage adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, presented by the Theatre Department at Lake Tahoe Community College. This new adaptation reawakens the true spirit of Christmas as it takes a fresh look at the inspiring holiday favorite. The show will be presented in the Duke Theatre, November 12-18.
Written by Susan Boulanger, LTCC’s Director of Theatre, this quick-paced adaptation tells the Dickens masterpiece with humor and poignancy. With a heart locked up tighter than a cashbox, Ebeneezer Scrooge is taken on a harrowing journey by three spirits for the chance to open up his heart and embrace his fellowman. Scrooge is forced to face his past, present, and future, as he struggles with his own pain and the notion of forgiveness. As he begins to see how he is connected to the world around him, he opens his heart to love and redemption.
Twenty actors, including seven children, play a multitude of characters in this highly theatrical presentation. Local favorite Dave Anderson, of Gardnerville, plays the iconic “Scrooge.” Playing all of the other characters are Chris Scott, Russ Williams, Matthew Lee, Alicia Agnew, Amber Smith, Astraea Marion, Ellen Martin, Riley Mitchell, AnnaMaria Dixon, Tessa Dixon, Wanda Smith of South Lake Tahoe; Fritz Schlottman of Dayton; and the children’s roles are played by Maddy Evans, Sam Evans, Sage Smith, Aspen Smith, Gilberto Aguirre, Kendall Wilson, and Yona Abiko, all of South Lake Tahoe.
