Three Couples Make Contributions to Cover the Cost of Our Outdoor Stage

Live Oak Theatre Says Thank You to Patrons for Generous Donations

Live Oak Theatre says thank you to three generous couples:

Chuck Wilson and Terry Weaver of Wilson Technology,
Mark and Stacy Labadia, and
Pat and Yvonne Brewer.

Each of these couples has just contributed one-third of the cost of building our new OUTDOOR STAGE. The stage will be the home of our new “Shakespeare on the Green” series. The first installment will be “The Bard Unleashed,” but more on that will be announced in the future.

At this time, we just wish to acknowledge the generosity and support of these three families. Thank you again.


One of the most exciting projects we’ve been planning is the creation of an outdoor performance space.  We have plans to build an outdoor stage which will allow us to continue to produce and rehearse our fall productions outside (weather permitting) on a stage that is built with the same specs as our indoor stage.  The audience will sit on the veranda and the lawn, allowing us to seat up to 100 people in a safe, socially distanced, outdoor setting that will be comfortable for you and our performers. Live Oak will have chairs available for lawn seating however, those who wish to be seated on the lawn may choose to bring their own comfortable lawn chairs or a picnic blanket instead. Social distancing will be enforced.


We have been carefully monitoring CDC guidelines since we opened for camp this summer.  Temperatures are taken of anyone who enters the building. Hand sanitizer stations are set up throughout the building and we’ve been spraying down seats, ballet barres, bathrooms, doorknobs, and just about everything else that can be sprayed on a regular basis. 

Seating will be socially distanced according to each group’s reservation.  Individual socially distanced seats are available as well. We request that our audience wear masks when standing in line or going indoors. When seated in your socially distanced outdoor seating you may remove them if you prefer! Guidelines for indoor productions will be decided closer to those productions based on how things are going and what guidelines are in place at that time.

 Due to the nature of socially distanced seating, and the limited ticket availability for each performance, all ticket reservations must be made no later than 48 hours in advance of each performance. Payments must also be made in advance either online, by mail or by dropping off a check at the box office.
