On October 22, 2016, the Little Theatre of Manchester will host our 2016 fundraising gala: OH, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL EVENIN'. In honor of our final show of the season, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA!, we will offer a country-western theme and menu.

The Little Theatre of Manchester at Cheney Hall is a cultural center for the people of Greater Manchester and beyond. We strive to introduce our community to great works of theatre arts, instilling within them an appreciation of the humanities, including the arts, music, and literature. Proceeds from the evening will allow Little Theatre to continue this work.

In celebration of OKLAHOMA!, guests are invited to come dressed in your best festive country western attire or cocktail casual!
