History Guymon Community Theatre Spotlight Players began with Dracula Baby directed by Kristy Patterson in 1979. The first 2 plays were presented in what was the little auditorium at Academy, but is now the Alternative School building. Mike and Kristy Patterson started the theatre group and have taken part off and on since the beginning. The group moved to the historic American Theatre building on Main Street and have been presenting quality productions for 26 seasons using all volunteers. In 1983, the group received their Articles of Incorporation and the IRS 501C letter of determination declaring Guymon Community Theatre as a qualified non-profit organization. The theatre building was purchased and remodeling has been on going since the mid 1980s. We extended the stage forward, added a wing to the stage, the 189 padded seats recline as a person is seated, a tunnel was built for the cast to go from backstage to the lobby without going outside around the block, there is a handicapped ramp on one side, the ceiling was lowered in the auditorium and ceiling fans installed. Air conditioning was installed in the auditorium so that it could be used in the summer months if needed. The concession stand and make-up room were divided and upgraded. The restrooms were expanded and are now handicap accessible, the lobby has been remodeled and new carpet installed 6 weeks ago, and the cast now has a bathroom backstage. The stage curtains have been hanging since 1983. Two years ago we took them down to vacuum them and after they were rehung they started literally disintegrating from age and the dust accumulation. We have replaced the side curtains, but now our next project is to replace the back wall curtains and the front stage curtains. We have been receiving grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council for a number of years and without their help, we would not be able to produce the shows that we have. We have also received grants from the Riffe Foundation and Xcel Energy for the bathroom and lobby remodels. In the 27 seasons, we have produced 89 shows: dramas, comedies, mysteries, and musicals. We have also had vaudeville shows, dinner theatres, outside artists performing, and a Wild West Show. We have done two historical radio style shows where the actors are sitting on stage with microphones reading their parts in the different character voices as if they are on the radio. The sound effects were created in full view of the audience as they would have been done in the days of radio. We normally have three to four shows in a season. We have only repeated four shows and they were years apart. "Oklahoma" was done for the Land Run centennial in 1989 and again for the City of Guymon centennial in 2001. "Barefoot in the Park" was the second show of the first season and was repeated during the 25th anniversary season. "Dont Drink the Water", and "Annie" in March 2005. The sequel called "Annie Warbucks" was presented in March 2006. The New York City skyline was painted on the back wall and stayed there for the sequel. With every production, we have first timers to the stage as well as returning veterans. For example, we have produced four of the "Nunsense" series. The primary characters are the same in each production. The stories surround the various fundraisers that the nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent are presenting and of course Murphys Law takes hold and things do not always work out. Joann Andrews has played the part of Sister Hubert in all four productions and Kay Brune has played the part of Sister Robert Anne in three of the four. We took Nunsense I and II to Dalhart and performed at the LaRita Little Theatre. Men on stage has been a problem from the beginning. I guess they are too shy to want to perform. However, in August 2002, Kristy Patterson directed the musical 1776 which had 30 men and 2 women and all had to sing. She started talking, enticing and cajoling the men she knew six months before auditions to have enough men for the
