For the 18th time since the Lighthouse opened its doors, the Lighthouse Children’s Theatre Players lit up the stage for their winter production, “The Magical Land of Oz!” 30 students, age 3-16 performed brilliantly in front of capacity audiences Dec. 2-3 on the stage of the First Baptist Church/Family Life Center. Actors were joined by a robust volunteer staff made up of parents and community members donating their time and talents to help the youth of the community shine through the theatrical arts. 

This production especially was meaningful for the group, as the Lighthouse Children’s Theatre nears its 10 year milestone. LCT would like to thank their Angels; the area businesses and groups whose support help make it financially possible for the Lighthouse to teach drama classes and stage theatrical productions for the youth to proudly represent their community and beyond. LCT would like to take the opportunity to thank their incredible, supportive audiences. Many in attendance have not missed a single Lighthouse show since the program began in 2007. The Lighthouse wishes everyone who helped make “Oz” a successful production, a very happy Christmas and a blessed new year.
