Sunrise Beach Little Theatre Group was organized in 1964 by the late Lillie Root to raise funds to support the Easter Pageant “He is Risen!” by performing skits, etc. for local civic organizations. The production was originally staged by White Masque Players in Kansas City, and was introduced to the Lake of the Ozarks Community April 14, 1968. The pageant is still reenacted every Easter Sunday now by the West Side Ministerial Association supported by area churches. The Sunrise Beach Little Theatre, Inc., a not for profit organization, now owned and operates the Sunrise Beach Community Center and produces two dinner theatre productions, a children’s play and summer fest production each year at the Community Center. SBLT is marking it’s 50th year by producing many new and exciting events at the Community Center this year. The Summer Fest Musical Production, “Ting Pao’s Chinese Laundry” was introduced this July and will be followed by the 50 Year Jubilee, a Car Show/ Book Signing, an Original Play Production to be presented in a Bohemian Cafe venue, a Haunted House and a Trunk or Treat.
