OLT and Just 4 Fun Players Team Up with Mena Mountain Resort for a Night of Mystery!
Looking for a fall evening with live entertainment that is full of fun and suspense? Mark your calendar for the performances of 39 Steps, a hilarious “whodunnit” comedy with just the right mix of murder mystery and humor.
The first of the shows will be performed on October 22 and 23 at Mena Mountain Resort. Doors will open at 6:00 PM and the show starts at 7:30 PM. This is a dinner theater with a twist; you bring your own “brown bag” dinner! There is limited seating, so please make reservations by calling MMR at 479-394-3110. You can also get ticket information at this number for these two shows.
There will be a reprise of 39 Steps on Halloween weekend at Ouachita Little Theatre, 610 Mena Street. Three shows will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 29-30, at 7:30 PM and Sunday October 31 at 2:30 PM. Your OLT season ticket will get you into either location. If you would like to purchase advanced tickets, you may visit the OLT office on Thursdays and Fridays between 2-6 PM or on Saturday between 10 AM and 2 PM.
Just 4 Fun cast member Tim Hesse describes the play as a parody of Alfred Hitchcock’s early thriller, “The 39 Steps.” He states, “It is set in London in 1935 and centers around a large cast of characters all played by four actors. Our hero runs deeper and deeper into pre-WWII espionage, Nazis, and even murders. What’s fun about this play is that the actors are actually encouraged to adlib and do whatever it takes to get a laugh. It reminds me of when I was a kid and came home from a movie and acted it out for my parents.”
Ouachita Little Theatre is concerned for the health and safety of our performers as well as our patrons. We will not require our OLT audiences to be masked, but we respectfully ask you to do so to assist in protecting each other from Covid19. Since the interactive dinner theatre at Mena Mountain Resort contains a stage that protrudes in the audience area, the tables will be limited to 4 people and placed to allow for social distancing.
Thank you for your cooperation and hope to see you for 39 Steps!!!
