Auditions will take place at the theatre. Lofte Community Theatre Executive Artistic Director, says “Hilda’s Yard is a wonderful example of modern theatrical literature that tells a heartwarming story. It’s a perfect piece for The Lofte, and I am so excited to bring this quaint story to life.” Hilda’s Yard is the 2018 Director’s Choice piece for the Lofte. Set in 1956, it follows the Fluck family through one extraordinary day during which their son loses his job and moves back home, their daughter leaves her husband and moves back home and Sam Fluck, thinking that he and his wife Hilda are empty nesters now and can start to live their OWN lives, buys their first television set. Hilda’s Yard is a poignant and funny look at how family dynamics don't really change much over the years. Those interested in auditioning should be prepared to read from the script. Please bring a complete list of conflicts during the rehearsal period. Hilda’s Yard will be onstage at The Lofte Community Theatre September 7th - 9th, and 13th - 16th.
