is because of organizations like Little Town Players that we can continue to provide
services that educate others on the lessons and legacy of World War II.”

Little Town Players, along with many Central Virginia theatre organizations, was shocked to hear about the sudden passing of Mark W. Foreman on June 17, 2022. Mark had been a part of our theatre for several years, debuting as Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” in 2009. Mark not only was a commanding presence onstage, he also made indelible contributions offstage. He served on our Board of Directors beginning in 2019 and chaired our Playreading Committee for two seasons. He also directed six musicals here: "Promises, Promises" and "She Loves Me" in 2017, "My Fair Lady" in 2019, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" and "I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change" in 2021, and most recently, "The Secret Garden" which closed less than a week ago. We are forever grateful that Mark gave so much of his time and heart to Little Town Players. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
