The Foursome PR
THOMASTON – Landmark Community Theatre is reopening with a small cast comedy using some veteran vaccinated actors that are ready to get started. Written by Norm Foster "The Foursome" centers around four old college friends playing a round of golf. Rick, Ted, Donnie, and Cameron are home for their college reunion; a great time to go out for a game of golf
and catch up on each other's lives. Unlike their college days, the conversation doesn't include talk of beer and final exams, but of colonoscopies, home-security systems, alcoholism, Buddhism, and more.
The cast consists of LCT executive director, Jeff Dunn, as “Donnie” the family man. Lou Guertin returns to the Opera House stage as “Rick” the lifelong bachelor. Guertin has been seen in LCT notable shows like; Of Mice and Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Elf. Chuck Stango plays “Cameron” the worry-wart of the bunch. Stango is the immediate past chair of LCT and a regular at the Opera House and throughout the region. His past LCT credits include; Of Mice and Men, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Mamma Mia!, and The Music Man. Scott Stanchfield plays the role of “Ted” the divorcee. An LCT veteran in the Orchestra, this is the first performance on stage for Stanchfield. He has performed as an actor at the Warner Theater and Goshen Players to name a few. This production of The Foursome will be performed for a live audience with social separation. Patrons interested in seeing the show but are unable to attend in person may purchase an online streaming version of the show to watch in the comfort of their own homes. This show is running for a limited time beginning Friday May 7th through May 15th on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm. Additional show times may be added in the event of sold out performances.

Steps taken for reopening
Landmark Community Theatre has been hard at work getting the Thomaston Opera House into shape for a post COVID-19 reopening. It is crucial that the new operations follow all of the COVID safe recommendations set out by the CDC, Department of Health and the state of Connecticut. This includes providing hand sanitizing stations, socially separated seating, temperature checks, cleaning all surfaces and purifying the air.
Through a grant from the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation the Opera House has been refitted with touchless faucets and dispensers in the restrooms. Each entrance and other areas have touchless hand sanitizers. The facility’s HVAC system has been retrofitted with Infrared UV light filters to purify the recycled air. The system also introduces fresh outside air at the same time. Landmark also purchased an ionizing disinfecting sprayer to be used before and after performances to ensure clean surfaces. Other systems have been modified to include a box office system change to automatically create separation of two seats on either side of ticket orders. Landmark has also temporarily removed every other row of seats for further separation. Revisions continue on a house staffing plan to provide instruction for cleaning, social separation and crowd control.
It is a top priority of Landmark Community Theatre to keep its patrons, volunteers and staff safe at all times. All of these precautions take time, money and volunteers to ensure their effectiveness. Anyone interested in volunteering or would like more information, please email: Courtney Deraleau
