Little Lake Theatre’s Fully Produced 74th Season, Seize the Play!

The 74th Season at Little Lake has a nice array of a dozen shows, carefully picked by their former Artistic Director Jena Oberg, curated to “make you laugh, cry, dance, and cheer.”

(Jena resigned her position with Little Lake to pursue a graduate degree in Speech Therapy, but will be back to direct Captain Louie which Little Lake is producing in conjunction with the Western PA School of the Deaf. )

  1. Little Lake board of directors, Melissa Struzzi as president, claim that the set design, lighting, AND sound for each show only takes 20 hours per week of work. The compensation for the technical director (doing the above mentioned necessities for a production) is ONLY for 20 hours per week and that INCLUDES show time. Makes me wonder what the board does with their budget…or if Ms. Struzzi understands the theater world at all.

    • 20 hours for a 4 show week is not unrealistic for the run portion, in the world of community theater. How that works out during Tech and build could be on the light side. The Little Lake in-the round staging doen’t allow for much if anything in the way of a typical set.

      • They expect a lot but refuse to pay. Such a tragedy that one person, Melissa, can ruin the morale of the entire production crew and cast members. GO BUILD THE SET MELISSA. But remember, there’s always someone rehearsing so don’t show up until 11pm to get started! Good luck!

      • He has ONE WEEK to build it all . If there are shows that weekend, there goes the 20 paid hours because showtime is included. no time left to build! If anyone wants to work for low pay, go to Little Lake.
