Scotty Jenkins will direct the next OLT/Just 4 Fun Players production, “Farce of Nature” written by Hope, Jones, and Wooten. This trio of playwrights is known for their self-described “madcap comedies” in which characters are memorably eccentric and find themselves in hilarious situations. OLT has produced several of these comedies in the past, including “The Dixie Swim Club,” “Southern Hospitality” and “Christmas Belles.” All were very popular with local audiences.
The following members have been cast: Nancy Lands as Wanelle Wilburn, Tim Hesse as D. Gene Wilburn, Tara Cornelius as Jenna Sealy, Janelle Barnes as Maxie Wilburn Suggs, Mike Moe as Carmine DeLuca, Paul Miner as Ty Wilburn, Jackie Baird as Lola Barbosa, Will Hose as Sonny Barbosa, and Beth Coogan as Roxanne Thorne.
Amanda Baker will serve as Assistant Director to Jenkins, Sharon Hose is Costumer, Linda G. Johnson is Props Manager, and McKayla Ortiz Kenyon is Stage Manager. Lights will be run by Abbie Baker and Sound by Cory Hilton.
“Farce of Nature” opens at Mena Mountain Resort as a special Valentine dinner show on February 14. Special reservations for that showing can be made by calling the resort at 479-394-3110. All other performances will be held at the Ouachita Little Theatre on February 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, and 24th. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7:30 PM, Sunday matinees are at 2:30 PM.
