Annual meeting and potluck Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Annual meeting and potluck Saturday
Baytown Little Theater’s annual general membership meeting will be at 11 a.m. Saturday (April 30) at the theater, 2 E. Texas Avenue
A potluck lunch will follow the meeting – bring something to share
Six board members will be elected to two-year terms. Nominations will be accepted from the floor. The nominating committee has nominated three current board members to remain and three new ones. (See biographies)
Renew your membership A new membership year started Jan. 1, so you will need to renew your membership to vote in the meeting if you haven’t already done so. You can take care of it at the meeting, or online.
Season tickets for the rest of the season will be on sale at the meeting.
We are In!!!
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.
