.

Ole Olsen Memorial Theater is presenting “Showstoppers Love: Are You In or Out?” for their third production of the season.
Directors Lynn Weil and Kelly Voss said the production is sure to be a crowd pleaser this year.
“We wanted to do a special Valentine’s Dinner Theater this year in addition to our usual dinner theater and show weekends,” Voss said. “So we decided the theme of the show based on that. I think audiences are going to have a lot of fun with this show.”
The show, which is sponsored by Peru Miami News, Smitty-McMusselman’s Pub and Grub, Roberts Law Firm, with Patrick Roberts and Sharon Brietenbach, Rush Law Office, with Brandon Rush, and Taurus Rose Salon owned by Stacey Prather-Rose, will have number from a variety of shows including Chicago, Rent, Company, Chorus Line, Spamalot, Phantom of the Opera, Hairspray, Porgy & Bess, Fiddler on the Roof, Shrek, Beauty and the Beast, Cats, Guys and Dolls, Carousel, Orchestra Wives, and more.
The dinner theaters on Valentine’s Day and again on February 26, are being catered by Boondocks and there is a special Italian menu planned in keeping with the “Love” theme. The menu includes: Stuffed Mushrooms, Caesar Salad, Lasagna, Garlic Bread Sticks, and Tiramisu.
“The Dinner Theater would make a great date night with the one you love,” Weil said. “It is a show that is packed full of funny moments. It is a show that brings together new love, old love, broken love and has an extremely talented cast.”
The show is being assistant directed by David Makin and Brandi Murphy, with Makin providing sound and Thomas Cavanaugh providing lighting for the show.
Choreography was done by Kelly Voss, Brandi Murphy, Courtney Voss, and Caitlyn Maiseroulle.
The cast also includes: Barb Cooley, Sunny Holtzlander, Sarah Holtzlander, Kris Kraning, Kendra Kraning, Takyia McCord, Caitlyn Maiseroulle, Courtney Voss-Hamblin, Nolan Vent, Rachel Bates, Joe Pyke, Stu Sullivan, Kelly Mathias-Williams, Tyler Rose, Zack Eckert, Debby Myers, Alan Meyers, Stacey Prather-Rose, Brandi Murphy, Maleigha Myers, Lynn Weil, Duane Flaherty, and Tom Gustin.
The set, a Garden of Love, was designed by Kelly Voss and built by Kelly Voss, Lynn Weil, Brandi Murphy, Shanna Medley King, Courtney Voss, Craig Hamblin, Colbey Voss, Sunny Holtzlander, David Makin, Caitlyn Maiseroulle, and Taylor Harmon.
“I am very excited about this year’s performance,” Voss said. “I think we have selected some great numbers. We have things that bring in nostalgia, combined with new, fresh songs and dances. I hope audiences will be applauding from the start to the end and leave with smiles on their faces.”

51 Looks Good on Us

As we enter our 51st season, we are working on a “facelift”. Nancy Dice has graciously refinished all the woodwork in the Depot (Gorgeous!) and is working on new window coverings as well.

We have upgraded the womens restroom, installed a new door, and will be getting dormer work done soon.

Sadly, several Depot windows were victim to vandalism last month and much to our distress had to be replaced.  We encourage you to be diligent in reporting any suspicous activity around our little theatre.

Stop in and see us.
