The new Baytown Little Theater at 2 E. Texas Avenue got off to a great start with a hugely successful run of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple,” directed by Gordon Gallatin.
Box office guru (and BLT’s newest Lifetime Member!) Dawn Daily reports that four of the six performances sold out and more than 500 people saw the show.
… but not quite finished
There’s still a lot to be done. Risers are expected this summer, after “The Cemetery Club,” while the theater is empty during “South Pacific” production at the Lee College Performing Arts Center.
If you can put in some time helping out as landscaping and inside work progress, check out our volunteer opportunities.
There are also a lot of things needed to make our new house a home – many of these are included on a wish list.
And, of course, contributions are always welcome, either online or by mail.
