Special "August Surprise" Performance

The Lamp-Lite Players will be presenting  a special "August Surprise" performance of The Dixie Swim Club, a lighthearted comedy by the same trio of  writers who created the hysterical East Texas trailer park comedy, "Doublewide, Texas."

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends, which span a period of thirty-three years.

Performances will be held on the weekends of August 18th and August 25th.

SFA Big Event on April 8

Lampliters, we need your help! SFA has their Big Event next Saturday, April 8th, and we will have a large group of students coming out to the Theatre to help organize and toss stuff from the pole barn and from underneath the Theatre.  This is a major community service opportunity for students, who will do all the physical work.

What we need are folks with trucks/trailers to help transport the stuff to the landfill, as well as people to loan us their garbage bills or city water bills that will allow us access to the landfill for free. 

If you have a pickup truck or, even better, a truck with trailer, please contact Brian Oswald by email at boswald@sfasu.edu.
