LANTERN THEATRE REHEARSALS UNDER WAY
Rehearsals have begun at the Lantern Theatre, Downtown’s live theatre venue on Van Ronkle.
The play is “All the King’s Women,” the story of Elvis Presley as told through the eyes of 17 women.
Liz Parker says: “This fast-paced series of monologues and scenes depicts events in the King’s life such as the story of the woman who sold him his first guitar, the three White House secretaries who were working when Elvis met Nixon, and even the events backstage at the Ed Sullivan show.
”You don’t have to be an Elvis fan to enjoy this one!”
Congratulation to the cast, Wendy Shirar, Arlene Biebesheimer, Christy Thompson, Haley Martin, and Josh Miller.
Information on performance dates and reservations is forthcoming.
The 2013 brochure has been published and there will be an opportunity to purchase season tickets.
That’s a good idea, as almost all performances were sold out. Amazing.
Somebody did their homework in thinking Downtown might be a great spot for live theater.
It took a lot of hard-working folks to make it happen.
Cathie Matthews, director of the Arkansas Department of Heritage for 15 years, has retired.
Gov. Mike Beebe named Martha Miller, 60, currently Deputy Director for the Department of Arkansas Heritage Museums, to the position.
