BY RUDI TIMMERMAN – OLT PRESIDENT –
The spring production at the Ouachita Little Theatre will be “Eyes of the Apostle” written by Donley Hesse. It will hit the boards starting March 20, 2015. This passion play will be told using the Biblical accounts as viewed by the Apostle John. “Eyes of the Apostle” will usher in Easter celebrations a week after the show closes.
A production of this magnitude, having as many as 50 in the cast, will require a level of dedication above and beyond what is normally expected from the production crew. OLT is excited and proud to announce the show will be directed by Scott O’Rear. Scott is the preacher at Hatfield First Baptist and he and his daughter, Katie, have appeared in a number of OLT productions. You may recall him from Bell, Book and Candle.
Scott will have help from others at OLT. Brad Storey will be the Assistant Director, with Lamar Austin and Lorraine Timmerman providing script oversight. Marilyn Brown has accepted the job of costume director. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help Scott will be welcomed with open arms.
Exact audition dates will be announced soon but will fall in the middle of January. Watch the OLT web site for details (oltmena.com). “Eyes of the Apostle” promises to be a great community event for young and old alike. Consider auditioning or at least mark your calendar to attend this great show.
