After a “dark” month at Ouachita Little Theatre in January, the stage lights will burn bright again on February 13 and 14 when “Love Letters” is performed live by Robby and Gini Burt. These veterans of the stage will bring life to a reader’s theatre style show that is perfect entertainment for Valentine’s Day weekend. This is a touching story of two lifelong friends whose complicated relationship is told through letters written to one another over decades. It is brilliantly written and beautifully executed by two of the finest actors featured at OLT.
CDC guidelines, including masks and limited audience size, are still in effect. Consider purchasing your tickets early at the OLT office, 610 Mena Street which is open on Fridays from 10:00 am until 2:00 PM. The Saturday evening performance will be at 7:30 PM, and the Sunday matinee at 2:30 PM.
The monthly “Movie Night Party” will return on Wednesday, February 10 at 6:30 PM. The next two classic films will feature a salute to the work of Neil Simon, who authored these selections that have both been produced on the OLT stage with great success.
The first film stars a young Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in “Barefoot in the Park.” This delightful comedy from 1967 is a romantic story of a two “opposite but passionate” newlyweds and their hilarious adjustment to ordinary married life. On March 10, OLT will show Simon’s famously hilarious work, “The Odd Couple” starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Mark your calendars, and don’t forget to wear your mask. And you might want to bring a couple of dollars for fresh hot popcorn!
