LTOB was formed in 1947 as a radio theatre and continued as such for several years before branching out into theatre productions. The group met and performed at several local locations until 1958. LTOB then rented the old Liberty Theatre until the early 1980's.
A contract was drawn up for the purchase of the building. An extensive remodeling of the upper balconies and light booth was then completed. In the spring of 1996 the contract was paid off and the “mortgage burned.”
The By-Laws state the mission and ultimate goal: “This shall be a non-profit organization for the purpose of discovering and developing local talent and producing theatrical performances for the entertainment and cultural enrichment of the general public.” In addition the group has evolved by partnering with local schools, civic organizations, and other non-profit entities to educate and benefit the community.
Annually during July and August, LTOB has the Little Opry on the Bay. The
