The SLT community has lost many of it's own members, patrons, and friends this year. We wanted a way to recognize individuals who were part of the SLT Family throughout the years. Often times, family members ask us to receive donations in lieu of flowers. We certainly appreciate your remembering SLT during such a difficult time. 

 

 

In Honor of Kit McKellan

 

 

Kit ‘Kitten ‘ McClellen was an active member of SLT for over 50 years.  She was not just a triple threat – actor, singer, dancer; but also a director and an incredible artist.  Always ready with a bright smile and a friendly word of advice, Kit was a constant sight around SLT. 

She was a mega multi-Ginny award winner.  She won several for leading actress, best director, best show, best set, and best poster art. 

Award winning shows Kit either starred in, directed, set designed, or decorated include:  Fiddler on the Roof, Guys and Dolls, You Can’t take it with You, Hello Dolly, Damn Yankees, Music Man, Brigadoon, Camelot, Secret Garden, Showboat, Brighton Beach Memoirs, The Importance of Being Ernest, Beauty and the Beast, Gypsy, Lil Abner, Mornings at Seven, Little Foxes, Pajama Game, and Oklahoma. 

Kit’s favorite playwright was Neil Simon. She always said his scripts were the easiest to memorize because they were so beautifully written. She was willing to share her techniques and practices to all, especially in the area of set painting. She was an integral part of setting up the paint room when we moved into the current main stage theater. 

Kitten, rest well. We love you and we will miss you.
