In 1941, Mississippi author Eudora Welty wrote a short story that became one of her most popular pieces. It was inspired by a photo that Welty had taken of a woman ironing clothes in the back of a small Southern post office.
It’s a vivid one-woman show of ‘Sister’ – the postmistress of the teeny tiny post office in ‘China Grove, Mississippi’ - telling the story of her very very Southern family: Papa-Daddy, Stella-Rondo and Uncle Rondo. She explains all about her trials and tribulations with her mad-capped folks.
LLT alumni Christy Liverett will be playing ‘Sister’ for us – and she’s already started learning all those lines so she’ll be ready for the funny one-act one-hour long winter performance.

A love story of an aged couple – cantankerous tart-tongued retiree Norman Thayer, and his supportive wife Ethel – living out their golden years as they spend summers at their peaceful Maine vacation home on the shores of Golden Pond.
Their daughter brings her wise-cracking ‘too cool’ soon-to-be stepson to stay with them – and the comedy, the teen angst and the drama all begins.
LLT faves Catherine & Steven Nowicki will play the Thayers. All other roles will be open at auditions on February 1st and 2nd.
The 1979 Broadway production won both Tony and Drama Desk awards. The well-received 1981 movie version with Henry Fonda, Katherine Hepburn and Jane Fonda garnered ten Academy Award nominations and three Oscar wins.
Sweet, funny, affectionate and moving – it’s not to be missed!

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 at LLTLaurelMS@aol.com.
