Facts and Figures

Have you ever wondered which ALT production drew the largest audience? Well, wonder no more. The Goddard Center opened in March, 1970, and Ardmore Little Theatre presented their first show in their new, permanent home on Tuesday, April 14. 1970. It was called Don't Drink the Water, ran for five performances and drew a total of 983 ticket buyers. However, this was not the largest crowd to ever see a play at the Goddard Center. Below are the top twenty non-musical plays in order of attendance. For shows that have been repeated, the original productions are in italics.

Number 15, The House of Mose was not part of a regular season, but was an original one act play written by Charles Warthen. Charles had appeared in many ALT productions in the 1960's, and wrote The House of Mose in conjunction with acquiring his masters degree in theatre. ALT asked Charles if we could enter his play in the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association play competition. Charles agreed but asked that the actors have a chance to perform at least once in front of an audience before being judged. Although the play did not win, one of our actors, June Holden, received an award as one of the best actresses in the competition. Charles later became the head of the theatre department at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant.


Next time, we will look at the top musicals in order of attendance.
