Dear OLT Patron,
As we eagerly approach the opening of ” Putting it Together”, our first show of the season, I want to take this opportunity to update you on what has been happening and is about to happen at your theatre.
We just concluded a hugely successful Summer Theatre Program for the 9th season which saw our young theatre enthusiasts undertake intensive three, two-week programs which culminated in a full-scale musical at the conclusion of each program. I want to thank our Education Director Roz McArthur Keys, who oversaw and coordinated the program along with a dedicated staff and student volunteers. This is a tremendous program which was thoroughly enjoyed by all who participated.
Our youth group program is geared up to start and this year and we have an exciting new addition with a program dedicated specifically for young musicians. The supremely talented Miguel Esteban originated the concept, and we currently have 12 young musicians ready to begin. We have room for more, so if you know any young adult musicians who may be interested, then please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Annual AGM will be held soon in October; this year we have revamped our membership options to allow those who wish to more actively support the theatre to do so. This year’s membership structure is as follows:
Student Membership - $20
General Membership $20
Voting Membership $30
Supporting Membership $100
Sustainer Membership $200
I would also encourage anyone interested in running for the Board of Directors to give serious thought to doing so; as a volunteer organization many hands make the work easier and if you have the inclination and willingness to see your theatre to continue to succeed then we certainly need your help. Please keep an eye out for the AGM package in your emails and posted on the website.
Of course, we are very excited for the opening of “Putting it Together” a celebration of the artistry of Stephen Sondheim. Our talented cast consists of Carleigh Frendo-Cumbo, Laura Murphy, Todd Appleton, David Cardinal and Ethan Eastwood. Tickets are on-sale for the show by going to the oshawalittletheatre.com website and clicking on “Buy Tickets”. – I hope to see you there!
As of September 1st we have updated our COVID-19 policies, which you can see here. We will no longer be mandating the wearing of masks for our audience members although we will continue to strongly encourage wearing a mask during performances. Our volunteers and staff will continue to wear masks during the performances while interacting with our patrons. As always, we will do our utmost to keep the facility a safe one for you to attend.
Wishing you a safe and pleasant September.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
PS. Remember to follow us for all your OLT news and updates!
