The Board of Directors of the Ouachita Little Theatre (OLT) invite community members to visit downtown businesses on Third Thursday Downtown to shop and eat, and then attend a Christmas movie classic. OLT will be showing Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life on December 15th at 7:30. There will be no admission charge. The movie starred James Stewart and Donna Reed and was initially released in 1946. Since that time, it has become one of the movies shown repeatedly during the holidays…a warm, moving story that is for the entire family.
At intermission, there will be $1 concessions on sale. It is the intent of OLT to routinely show a classic movie during upcoming Third Thursdays as a part of an effort to introduce more people to the theatre. OLT board members, actors, directors, and backstage helpers are all volunteers.
OLT also enjoys collaborating and educating the members of the Junior OLT (JOLT) in the art of theatre and has been providing a workshop each Third Thursday since the Summer for students in the third grade and up. The activity for December will not be a workshop, but will be a Christmas party with the viewing of the Muppets’ Christmas Carol. All young people in the above age group are invited to attend from 4:00 – 5:30 PM on December 15th at no charge. At other activities, JOLT members are always welcome at no cost, and others from third grade through high school can join the JOLT group for $10 per year. Judy Kropp, OLT board member and JOLT adviser, notes that in January, workshops will begin again on the third Thursday of each month, stressing the importance of lines by having the students write their own scripts. Past monthly activities have included stage fighting, auditioning with a script, blocking and performing a short clip from The Outsiders.
Be a part of our heart and come play with us at OLT: Attend It’s a Wonderful Life December 15.
