February Fun at Mena's Ouachita Little Theatre

February Fun Scheduled at OLT


Who says nothing happens in February? Not Ouachita Little Theatre! Come join us for the following activities.


Opening night for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is Friday, February 21. Performances run through the weekend including February 22, 23 and again on February 23, 29, and March 1. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 PM and Sunday matinees are at 2:30 PM. This play is a joint venture with the University of Arkansas at Rich Mountain. Come see one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies onstage with brilliant costumes, sets, and superb acting under the direction of Robby and Gini Burt. Advanced tickets for reserved seats are on sale now at the OLT office Monday-Friday 10:00 am to 2:00 PM, and tickets are always available at the door.

Auditions for the spring musical “BIG” directed by Jessica Kropp with Judy Kropp serving once again as musical director will be held late in the month. “BIG” is a Broadway musical that is based on the movie starring Tom Hanks about an adolescent boy who has a strange encounter at a fair that results his body turning into an adult, although his mind didn’t make the transition. Results are funny, at times poignant, and in this case, also musical! There will be parts for all ages. OLT musicals are well known for their excellence, and this one is sure to be a memorable one. Auditions will be held Wednesday, February 26th from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM and Thursday, February 27th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Tryouts will be at the OLT unless otherwise announced. Performance dates are May 14,15,16,22,23, and 24.

OLT Movie Night will feature “Groundhog Day” on Wednesday, February 12 at 6:30 PM. This hilarious comedy starring Bill Murray is the perfect choice to celebrate the second most popular holiday in February. It also has a romantic side to please our Valentines. Admission is free, donations welcome, and concessions are cheap! We will even have hot chocolate on hand to take the chill out of a wintry evening. Hope to see you there!
