About Us


Welcome from Main Street Theater Productions With Oliver!

Main Street Theater Productions begins its second full season here in western Loudoun County. We are so pleased that you are able to join us for this performance.

We are so thankful to everyone who made a first year such a success. Main Street has grown from just the two of us to everyone who participated in our productions, built sets, painted, and otherwise helped in myriad ways. Our audiences have grown from those who saw our inaugural Take Two show last year to you today at this performance. We thank those of you that entrusted your children to us at our camps over the last two summers. We look forward to doing it again next summer.

I am often asked, to my surprise, whether our productions use local talent, or if we import talent from elsewhere. In my mind, community theatre is just that – from and for the community. I am constantly in awe of the level of talent we have right here in our own community of western Loudoun County. We are pleased to be able to present some of that talent on stage for you today.

I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to acknowledge our Artistic Director, the creative genius behind Main Street Theater Productions, to whom I am very lucky to be married. Karlah Louis shares what she has learned from more than 30 years on the professional musical stage. She does it all, from directing, to set design and construction, lighting design, costume design, sewing… The list of jobs goes on and on, and she does them all. I can’t say enough about what goes on in this amazing lady’s head, and how she keeps us all on track to produce the show you see before you today. Am I gushing? Well maybe just a little bit, but Karlah deserves it!

We’re at home on Main Street.
