After two successful summer musicals, BIG and Little Women, Ouachita
Little Theatre will be taking a short break during the month of
September. Due to Covid19 concerns, the monthly Wednesday Night at the
Lyric event showcasing free classic films will be postponed in
September. Hopefully the community response to the Covid numbers will
indicate a safer environment for indoor gatherings for October and the
popular “movie night” can return October 13. Toward the end of
October, OLT’s “Just 4 Fun Players” will present performances of
“The 39 Steps.” Part spy mystery and part humorous
“whodunit”, this fast-paced show will provide audiences with
laughter and suspense. Shows will be at two venues, Mena Mountain
Resort and the OLT stage. Details regarding times and dates will be
Reserve Saturday evening November 13 or Sunday afternoon, November 14,
for a special global event in which OLT will be participating. This
event is entitled “All Together Now” and it is a celebration
sponsored by Music Theatre International (MTI) that will be taking
place simultaneously with hundreds of theaters all over the world.
MTI has granted special permission to schools and local theaters to
locally produce and perform an exclusive musical revue featuring songs
from their beloved shows without having to pay royalties or other
expenses. It is intended to encourage theaters attempting to “come
back” from the darkened theaters of the pandemic.
Directed by musical veteran Judy Kropp, some of your favorite OLT
performers will entertain patrons with fantastic memorable showtunes,
many of which have been previously performed at OLT through the years.
This program is a special fundraiser not included on the OLT season
ticket, and all admissions will be a flat $10 fee per person.
Additional donations will be grateful accepted.

for entertainment in Polk County!
