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

announced shortly.

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.

Watch this publication for details on all these great opportunities

for entertainment in Polk County!
