Next Season at Lamp-Lite Theatre

We are still finalizing the lineup for next season, but we have settled on four of the six plays we will be performing during the 2019-20 season.

  • Nunsense II — A hilarious musical comedy that was last performed at Lamp-Lite during the 2011-12 season
  • Finding Christmas — a heartwarming Christmas story written by Lamp-Lite's own Pat Harris that debuted on our stage two seasons ago and played to standing-room-only crowds.
  • What We Need — a new play by SFA professor and longtime Lampliter Ken Untiedt. This will be Ken's second play to debut on the Lamp-Lite stage, following this year's delightful comedy, Yes, We Deliver.
  • Much Ado About Nothing — a spirited adaptation by Pat Harris of one of William Shakespeare's most popular comedies, Much Ado About Nothing.

Please arrive 10 min early for registration.

The Tennessee Williams classic, A Streetcar Named Desire,  was performed by The Lamp-Lite Players during the 2012-13 season. List of Past Performances

Upcoming Performance

Talking Pictures

Native son Horton Foote’s drama, Talking Pictures, will close out the season.

The story takes place in 1929 and tells the story of Myra, a piano player for the silent movies, who is about to lose her job as "talking pictures" take the country by story. How will she support herself and a young boy? Will she take another chance on love? What will her landlords, the Jacksons, do as they are being forced to move by the railroad system of promotion? "The times, they are a changin'!"

The outstanding cast for this production includes Wanda Schenk, Kent Johnson, Lisa & Trae Norman, Katrina Hawkins, Joshua Hall, Olivia Dean, Hanna Bryant and Joe Ballenger.
