Christmastime at Ouachita Little Theatre is always extra fun for our patrons. We offer live family entertainment that people of all ages will enjoy.
First up is “A Seussified Christmas Carol,” a lively Junior Ouachita Little Theatre production performed by young people of all school ages. Directed by Makayla Ortiz and Lexie Payne, these young women are rehearsing with their large cast to produce a play that is written in the distinctive Dr. Seuss rhyme and pentameter. Costumes and sets reflect the nostalgic Dr. Seuss whimsical style we have all come to love. Bring the family to one of five performances which have recently been rescheduled to December 9th, 10th, 11th, 17th, and 18th. The Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 PM and Sunday matinees are at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $10 each and are already available online at oltmena.com for advanced reserved seating. You may also purchase tickets at the door. Season tickets are accepted for this show.
On December 14, OLT will have the last Wednesday Night at the Lryic for 2022. We will be screening the classic film “White Christmas” starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen. Back by popular demand, this musical favorite is sure to put you in the holiday spirit, especially joining your friends and family in the classic old Lyric Theatre. The experience is complete with hot popcorn, candy, hot chocolate, and soft drinks. Join us at 6:30 PM; as always, admission is FREE, and the concessions are cheap!
Also easy on your wallet is our final offering for the holiday season. On Friday, December 16 at 7:30 PM, OLT is pleased to once again host the musical family group, Harmony. They have been delighting our audiences with their Christmas show for the last few years. Admission is by donation, so just put what you can afford in the donation jar. It’s one of the best ways to enjoy the holidays with musical entertainment that is a tribute to the real reason for the season. No reservations necessary, just come and enjoy!
