NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS (KETK) — In the oldest town of Texas there’s the Lamp-Lite Theatre in Nacogdoches. The theatre is celebrating their 43rd season.
“We do rehearsals for 5 or 6 weeks a month and then in the day time people are at the theatre making sets,” said Sarah McMullan, Theatre Director. She says there’s so much history the curtain.
It’s a non-profit theatre, the people of Nacogdoches make it come to life by volunteering and donating a piece of their life to the stage from props to photos and hand-built work.
The play “The Rainmaker” is occupying the stage until Sunday before Merry Christmas Darlings” auditions begin on Tuesday.
A retired army vet Les Balty is looking for actors; teens and adults for a play her wrote and will be directing and it’s based on his army experience. “It’s set in 2007 with an army reserve unit that is in Iraq, they have a Christmas day teleconference this is before Skype and all the kids decided to put on a show for their loved ones overseas,” said Balty.
The folks of Nacogdoches want to see entertainment continue in their town filled with artistic talent.
“There’s something about the thrill of live theatre, we love the movies, we like TV but to be here with other people and experiencing this in the dark together… people laugh, cry and have a wonderful time.
