The Dali Follies: Seven short plays by seven different playwrights – all world premieres written with Salvador Dali as the primary inspiration.

 
The Dali Follies will be the theater’s eighth short play festival.  If you’ve been to any one of them, you know what fun they are. If you’re new to TCL’s short play festivals, you’re in for a treat!   Past festival themes have included J. Edgar Hoover, Wayne Newton, Frankenstein and Sputnik.
 
Why Dali this time?  “His art was groundbreaking and iconic, and he was also one of the first artist celebrities, explains Artistic Director Madge Montgomery.  “I realized that we could capitalize on Dali’s own sense of the absurd and also bring in other “Dollies” such as the Dolly Parton, Dolley Madison, and even the Dalai Lama.

Yes, you are in for a punny good time!   Rated PG for some language.

Theater Company of Lafayette is proud to announce this year’s collaboration with Longmont Theatre Company’s Taste of Shakespeare:
untitled
All’s Well That Ends Well, directed by TCL’s Don Thumim
July 8-31.  Times and locations vary.
Performance at the Mary Miller Theater, July 24 at 2:00 p.m.
Helena has married her husband, but he’ll have none of her. She sets out on a campaign to win his heart and his bed, aided by powerful friends. We’ve set this production in the Old West, to bring this classic tale closer to home. You’ll find the show full of people in disguise, broad buffoonery, and a satisfying, happy ending.

While the shows are free, we do accept donations at the end of each performance, and we appreciate your generosity to help us continue this work.For outdoor performances, bring seating, water, sun screen, bug spray, and anything else you might need for a couple of hours outdoors.
