Personal Note:
When I was a little girl the Lensic was a movie theater. I loved going to the movies there. Even at a very young age I was in awe with the architectural detail and wondered what it would be like to sit in one of the box seats on either side of the stage. Just before the movie would begin the ceiling lights were turned off and small up-lights were turned on at the base of large pots in alcoves in the midnight blue walls. The ambiance made me feel as though I was in another world. The heavy red velvet curtains on the stage would open, one to the left, the other to the right, and the movie would begin. It was wonderful! My fathers mother and only sister lived on San Francisco Street, three blocks from the Lensic theater, for 50+ years. When we were young my cousins and I often spent the weekend with them. One particular winter weekend a cousin and I were visiting my Grandmother and Aunt when I came down with the flu. My aunt became very concerned with my loss of appetite and knowing that I loved the buttered popcorn from the Lensic Theater she decided to get some for me. Everyone was already in their pj's but that did not matter to my Aunt. She took my cousin, both still in their pj's, and sent her into the Lensic Theater to buy buttered popcorn! My cousin was twelve years old at the time, talk about embarrassing! This special personal note is in memoriam of my aunt, who loved all of her nieces and nephews dearly, and left us with many fun (sometimes embarrassing) memories.

James A. Little Theater (TheaterWorks)
THEATERWORK defines itself in terms of its commitment to the cultural aspects of community life. Theater should be a gathering place, a place of ideas, stories, reflection and dialogue...a place of culture. A lively theater sees its community as producers and creators of culture, not consumers. A lively theater addresses a community that is moving out with its sleeves rolled up, strength in its hands. It sees a community that is ingenious, funny, competent, resilient, lovely.
