,'», ' * \ '-'; ·It.' . ' ' fcj OUR TOWN -- A big hit last season was the Little Theatre presentation of*Thornton Wilder's "Our Town." Earl Butler, Mollye Davis, Martha Renick, Nell Bartlett and Clarice Wolloch are shown, left to right aboT«, in a scene from that production. The Little Theatre Has Grown Dp As larger and more enthusiastic audiences are becoming increasing- ly aware, Corpus Christi's Little Theatre has grown up. Gone are the days when a small group of earnest amateurs performed awkwardly before fami- lies and friends. The Little Theatre has grown up into a true community theatre, with skillful and talented actors featured in Broadway plays, pro- duced and presented with a professional touch. Corpus Christi's Little The- atre plays are fun to watch, and they provide a cultural outlet for scores of local people of all ages, players, painters, writers and musicians, who have banded together in a group effort to enrich our community life.
