Tickets for SLT’s Oldest Living Graduate go on sale Feb 15

Tickets go on sale February 15 for Shreveport Little Theatre’s comedy-drama, The Oldest Living Graduate, by Preston Jones and directed by Mary Joris.

The play is set in Bradleyville, Texas, in 1962 where Colonel Kinkaid, a crusty World War I veteran is now confined to a wheelchair. He regales anyone who will listen. His son, an aggressive wheeler-dealer, learns that the Colonel is the oldest living graduate of M. B. Lamar Military Academy, and when the school comes forth with the idea of holding a celebration in honor of the old man, the son persuades them to do so in Bradleyville —hoping to benefit from the resulting publicity.

The veteran cast includes Meade Patton, Jennifer Carsillo, Brittainy Williams, Alan Mathison, David Brown, Jeff Lowe, Ken Murray, Debbie Posey and new to SLT’s stage, Elliot White.

The production crew for the play include, director Mary Joris, stage manager Alan Mathison, assistant stage manager Martha Vanchiere, technical director and set designer Derek Shiplov, lighting designer Julie Edwards, lighting board operator Keri Kennon, sound designer Barry C.
