Members of the Ouachita Little Theatre Board met Thursday, July 20 at the office in Suite B next to the theater lobby. President Rudi Timmerman directed the meeting and discussed several goals for the upcoming season. One of those goals is to have regular set hours for the office in Suite B to be open to make it easier for patrons to purchase advance tickets and sign up for memberships. Also, there will be the opportunity for the public to have their old VHS tapes made into the DVD format by OLT for a reasonable price at this location. Plans also include reviving the Free Movie Night at the Lyric for the public. First show is planned for August 9 . OLT also participated in the Christmas in July program downtown the weekend of July 21-22, as the JOLT production of Tom Sawyer completed their successful performances. The cast for OLT’s fall production of Hamlet, directed by Brad Storey, has been selected and rehearsals will begin in August.
Committees were formed and will be chaired by the following people:
Production (director of current play in production); Box Office, Justin Fenwick; Concessions, Bill Hays; Publicity, Julie Ulmer; Play Selection, Lamar Austin; House, Brad Storey; Costumes, Jane Buttermilk; Programs, Beth McMillen; Finance, Linda Johnson; Membership, Barry Mickelson; Outreach, Amanda Baker; Social, Amanda Baker.
