NEXT UP ON OUR STAGE
SILENT MOVIE SPECTACLE!!!
THE GOLD RUSH
April 7 at 730pm
Reservation line opens March 29 and answers 24 hours a day at 601.428.0140
Laurel's Arabian Theatre had its grand opening day in April 1927. It operated as a movie house for 50 years, and then after closing, Laurel Little Theatre bought the building and saved it to become our own performing arts theatre.
To celebrate the 91st Birthday of the last remaining downtown movie palace, LLT will have a one-night-only 1920's costume party (costumes optional) showing Charlie Chaplin's masterful silent movie comedy THE GOLD RUSH on April 7th at 730PM.
Chaplin's hilariously famous "Little Tramp" is a gold prospector that becomes trapped in a deserted cabin during a snow storm, and the movie features the comedian's most beloved bits and silliest moments.
It received several Academy Award nominations, and it’s on the American Film Institute's "100 Greatest Movies" list. THE GOLD RUSH was the number one movie of the 1926-27 movie season, and the film is still in the Top Five of the highest-grossing silent films of all time.
Admission is free for LLT season ticket holders (no punch will be taken, you just show your season ticket) - or single admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.
The movie runs just an hour and a half, and this silent film features a lush musical score. Wear your favorite 1920's look if you'd like - and join in. WHAT A FUN NIGHT!
LLT's reservation line only answers the week of each show - 24 hours a day at 601.428.0140.

Beauty is in the eye of the ogre!!! It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.
It's a super funny musical that's also very romantic - perfect for the whole family. Come and see just how much the 100 kids from our annual summer camp will make you smile...and laugh...and cry.
The registration period is now open and continues until the camp max of 100 is reached and registration is closed. Camp is open to students that will be entering grades 1 through 10 next fall. Our annual summer camp always fills up in advance and gets closed off at some point, so make sure you get your student registered early so you don't hear the dreaded "sorry, but we're full."
Registration this year is online.

Everyone registered will be in the production, but director Brenda Shows will hold auditions for most of the leading roles on April 29-30, and then some supporting roles will be cast the first day of camp. Auditions for speaking roles are only open for registered campers.
WORKSHOP & REHEARSALS:
The students will attend eleven days of workshops and performances running May 24th - June 3rd. Due to the local schools having to cover their 'snow days', our first day of camp on May 24th will run from 4PM-8PM and we'll provide pizza for the campers' break. Then from May 25th until May 31st, those seven days of camp will be in the afternoons from 1PM until 5PM (that includes all of Memorial Day weekend).
Camp wraps up with five exciting performances: May 31st and June 1st at 730PM, June 2nd at both 2PM and 730PM, and then a Sunday matinee on June 3rd at 2PM.

REMEMBER LLT IN YOUR GIFT GIVING
As a non-profit organization, LLT has always depended upon "the kindness of strangers." We survived and thrived for almost six 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.
