Once again, our annual summer Kids’ Camp production is included in our season so that our season ticket holders can use a punch to see it!
LLT is one of the very first community theatres from around the nation to be approved to present this junior version of THE LION KING, which is now the 3rd longest-running show in Broadway history!
Based on the hit Disney animated film, this stage musical features the beloved score by Elton John and actors in inventive costumes that includes puppets.
When it opened in NYC, it received 22 Drama Desk and Tony Award nominations and was the Tony winner for Best Musical that year.
Our annual Summer Kids' Camp is an intensive one-week workshop where over 100 students have a memorable time learning the audition and rehearsal process, and then t hey’ll end the week with five magical performances of DISNEY'S THE LION KING JR!
Join Mufasa & Scar, Simba & Nala and Timon & Pumba in "The Circle of Life," and you'll see just how much the 100 kids from our annual Summer Kids’ Camp will make you smile…and laugh…and cry.

We'll open our 57th season this coming summer with a return of one of our biggest hits ever! We first presented JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT back in 1995 and then revived it in 2009 with both productions selling out to full houses.
Long-time LLT alumni Wess Hughes will be back once again to direct this spectacular musical, and Jonathan McKenzie will also be returning for his third run in the title role of 'Joseph'
Auditions for all other parts will be held at our downtown Arabian Theatre on June 5-6 at 7pm, and rehearsals will run three nights a week in June and four nights a week in July.
The production will feature a huge cast of 30 adults (with high school and college ages included in the adult roles) and 30 students (of elementary and junior high ages).
Shane Cockrell will be the musical director, Coco Caldwell will serve as the choreographer and
Laura Cooley will be the assistant director.

SOME EXCITING CHANGES THIS SEASON
After many years of requests from our audiences, the annual Kids' Camp production will once again be a part of our 4-Punch Season Ticket and not require a single ticket purchase for season members.
And...for our patrons, this coming year, instead of a one-night-only patron party that was always difficult for everyone to attend, LLT will be offering our patrons a complimentary drink (beer, wine or soft drink) at every performance they attend.
And there's another great big new perk for patrons - a section of reserved seats will be set aside at every performance that will be held just for the patrons to choose from.

REMEMBER LLT IN YOUR GIFT GIVING
As a non-profit organization, LLT has always depended upon "the kindness of strangers." We've survived and thrived for five decades thanks to the great support of everyone in the community.
We're very proud of our historic 1927 Arabian Theatre, but we have to constantly work at keeping the facility maintained, and we have big plans to add the new Pinehurst Room extension in the next year or so. That addition will run along the south side of the Arabian exactly where the old Pinehurst Hotel stood. And, YES, ladies, there will be brand new restrooms so you won't have to stand in that long line anymore!
We'll need the help of our friends and families and even strangers to raise the funds to complete this. Remember us in your annual gift giving and in your wills and estate planning. So many of our beautiful old buildings in Downtown Laurel have disappeared - help us to ensure this one continues to thrive. We're planning a Wall of Honor in the new Pinehurst Room that will memorialize your name or the name of those you'd like to remember. Mail to LLTLaurelMS@aol.com for more info.
We're always looking for folks that would like to help backstage on sets, props and costumes. Do you sew ? Like to help slap some paint on a wall? Do a little hammering? Drop us a line.
