Little Church Theater plans busy summer schedule

HOLDERNESS — Unique doesn't begin to describe the location and mission of The Little Church Theater on the shores of Squam Lake in Holderness.

The theater's home was originally the Sacred Heart Chapel, built at the end of the nineteenth century for summer worship. Church goers could catch a ride to church aboard a ferry run by the Asquam Transportation Company that went out of business shortly after the automobile was invented. The church was purchased in 2003 by George and Austine Howard who renovated the building, adding a stage and seating for 144 people. A cross still sits at the tip of the roof above the front door and stained glass windows filter the summer sunlight. The space inside, however, has been transformed by the creative energy and dramatic voices that echo down the aisles during summer performances.

The Little Church Theater celebrates its 11th season this summer with three months of performing and visual arts, all open to the public. Art shows, youth acting workshops, original plays, a green fashion show and more are on the 2014 schedule:

June 4, 4 - 6 pm: Annual High School Art Show with Silent Auction. Exhibit of students' work from Holderness, Plymouth, New Hampton and Interlakes High Schools.

June 24 & 25, 7 pm; Women at the Well by Grace Bauer, Adapted for the stage by Sharon Rae Paquette

July 7 - July 18, 9 am - 2 pm, Young @ Art Performance Workshops for Middle & High School Students Production on Friday, July 18

Thursday, July 24, 7:30 pm, Project Greenway, Inspired by the TV show, Project Runway, this is the 5th Annual LCT battle of the green designers.

July 31, August 1 & 2, 8 pm, Picasso at the Lapine Agile., By Steve Martin; Directed by Sharon Rae Paquette

August 21, 22, 23, 8 p.m., Goldfish Girl, Finding Love in a Fishbowl, an original play by Monique Devine
