Slidell Little Theatre's 2014-2015 Poster Artists

By Don Redman

We recently unveiled our slate of shows for the 2014-2015 Season, and this year’s contributing artists have done an outstanding job in capturing the essence of each production.

An all-volunteer organization, we rely heavily on people in the community to step forward to offer their time and talent to our little theatre and we have been the beneficiary of many outstanding gifts, including the artistic works of fine artists and graphic artists who have offered up their talents to help promote our productions.

 It is our distinct pleasure to introduce our 2014-2015 Poster Artists (listed in order of the show’s production schedule):
