After its groundbreaking 2019 season, the Los Alamos Theatre Group has announced that its next original production will be “Trash, A Musical About a Very Untidy Death,” to be produced in April at its new permanent home in The Depot Mall and Bar in the heart of Los Alamos.
“The outpouring of enthusiasm and support from the Los Alamos community has been amazing. We’re thrilled that our partners at The Depot Mall and Bar have enabled us to have a permanent theater in Los Alamos so we can continue to present new original works for our audience,” said writer-director Jeffrey Bloom. “We appreciate Ana and Dan Thompson’s (owners of The Depot Mall and Bar) support in providing us with a beautiful home.”
A wholly volunteer group, the Los Alamos Theatre Group (LATG) donates all the money from ticket sales to local nonprofit organizations. To date, that amount is more than $12,000. The group’s first 2020 production will open with a cast of 14 local actors. Part murder mystery, part courtroom drama, and large part comedy and music, “Trash” will be LATG’s most ambitious project. With 10 original songs, music is composed by Connie Rhode and Lee Stanchfield.
The group has presented three original productions in less than two years. Carole and Jeffrey Bloom, the husband and wife writer/producer/director team who started the group, moved to Los Alamos from Hollywood eight years ago. Jeffrey Bloom, who writes and directs the plays, is also a photographer who has produced a book of portraits of local residents, entitled “Characters.”
