Lady Smith’s Little Theatre has changed its name to the Ladysmith Theatre and co-founders Judi and Terry Whittaker are retiring. The theatre’s Marketing Director Marie Witt says: “Although Judi and Terry will be truly missed, their commitment to providing our community with quality theatre will carry on in the hands of the many volunteers who continue to dedicate their hard work.” Witt reports that the theatre has plans to introduce a new website and new online ticket purchasing options. The old website www.ladysmiththeatre.com is currently down but should be back soon
