Little Theatre Of Virginia Beach is delighted to present its first entirely online production of its 2020-2021 season: THREADS.  THREADS is the story of six women at various stages of life, from childhood to adulthood, and the connections they make that move them forward. Each woman’s story is released independently and highlights their world and lives at a particular stage of life. Everyday trials and tribulations such as parental troubles, new friends, sleepless nights, milestone birthdays, work, and a longing for brownies inspire their tales of life as a woman, as written by Hampton Roads native, Abbie Korman.

On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Mirelli, the world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Otello. Henry Saunders -- General Manager of the company -- is beyond stressed about everything turning out right, and insists that his assistant, Max -- a nervous, young fellow and secret tenor extraordinaire -- watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing. After a huge fight with his fiery, Italian wife Maria, Tito receives a double dose of tranquilizers through a series of mishaps. Throw in Diana, an ambitious, female co-star; Maggie, Max’s giddy girlfriend; Julia, a flirty head of the opera guild; and a meddling bellhop fighting for Tito’s attention. Together, you have a recipe for comedic disaster. Max navigates the company through one catastrophe after the next -- an angry wife, a presumed death, crazy costumes, secret sex romps, and loads and loads of slamming doors and mistaken identities -- and, ultimately, takes on the role of Otello to great effect. Together, Max and Saunders find a way to save the Opera Company’s big night in grand, farcical fashion.

Music and Lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick
Book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell

The year: 1595. The place: London. The Queen: Elizabeth…the first! The story: brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom have hit, well, bottom, and that dastardly bard, William Shakespeare, dominates the London theatre scene. It would take a miracle to predict the next great hit that will leave Shakespeare in the dust. Enter Thomas Nostradamus, the slightly less talented nephew of the famous Nostradamus, who predicts the earth-shattering notion of “A Musical!” What ensues is musical comedy genius with song, dance, and deceit as the brothers attempt to preempt Shakespeare’s next big hit. These boys are ready to have their moment in the limelight… but maybe London isn’t. All we can say is that the theatre world will never be the same after these two are done with it! "…A deliriously entertaining new musical comedy that is devilishly clever under its goofy exterior. The influences are clear: 'The Producers,' 'Spamalot' and 'The Book of Mormon.' Yep, this is a blockbuster." - The New York Post "...'Something Rotten!' has established itself as Broadway’s funniest, splashiest, slap-happiest musical comedy in at least 400 years." - Time Out "...loaded with crowd-pleasing showstoppers, deliciously puerile gags and an infectious love of the form it so playfully skewers." - The Hollywood Reporter Show rating: PG-13
