BY JUDY THOMPSON –
The Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy, Dearly Beloved, opened this past weekend to laugh-filled audiences. Final performances will be Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20 at 7:30 PM and the Sunday matinee, February 21, at 2:30 PM. Admission is only $8.00 with seniors 60 and over and students paying $5.00. The admission costs for most OLT performances have been kept this low so that it will be very affordable entertainment for the community.
