Now Playing: The Secret Garden!


Secret Garden Poster WEB

Lindsey Chambers portrays the spirit of Lily Craven looking on at her niece Mary Lennox (Trisha Dobson) pushing Colin Craven (Grant Sikes) through the gardens of Misselthwaite Manor in Rome Little Theatre’s “The Secret Garden.”

This enchanting classic of children’s literature is re-imagined in brilliant musical style. Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers”, spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

RLT’s “The Secret Garden” to Bloom with Powerful Emotion

Lauren Jones, RLT VP of Public Relations

When a little girl with an old, rusted key unlocks the door to an abandoned garden, she unlocks the secret of breathing life and color into a grim, dead world that was once overshadowed by grief.

Rome Little Theatre’s production of The Secret Garden opens January 29th and runs through February 7th, and the powerful musical is one that flows strongly with hauntingly beautiful themes of finding life and meaning after a heavy loss. Based on the enchanting literary classic, the musical is re-imagined in a bold and brilliant style.

Let’s rally for the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund!


Jason Endowment Fund

LET”S RALLY!

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established following Jason’s death on September 24, 2013. He was 39 at the time of his death. Almost 4-years earlier, Jason had been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor, and every treatment used over that 4-year period proved unsuccessful in reducing or treating the cancer.

Jason was a supporter of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia, particularly related to community theatre and the preservation of the Historic DeSoto Theatre. Jason was a member of both the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Board at the time of his death. Jason had served as president of the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors from 2009-2011.

In addition to his love of theatre as an actor, director, and producer, Jason was also an avid reader, game designer, singer, and writer. The two organizations to which he was so dedicated continue to miss his creative and intellectual abilities.

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established to not only honor Jason’s contributions to theatre and serve as his legacy, but it will also provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc., both of which are 501(c)(3) organizations.

Your donation to the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund will be held in trust to generate interest and dividends for equal distribution to Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc. to be used in whatever manner each organization deems appropriate to advance the arts in Rome and Floyd County.

Rome Little Theatre and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Gifted with $100,000 Endowment Fund


Jason Endowment Fund

We are very pleased to announce the creation of the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund.

Gifted by an individual who asked not to be identified, the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established to honor the memory of Jason Fordham, who passed away September 24, 2013, following a 4-year battle with cancer.

Jason was a supporter of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia, particularly related to theatre and the preservation of the Historic DeSoto Theatre and was a member of both the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Board, serving as president of the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors from 2009-2011.

The designated purposes of the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund are:

(a) to honor Jason Fordham’s contributions to theatre;

(b) to serve as Jason Fordham’s legacy; and

(c) to provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation.

The income from the investment of monies in the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund will be equally divided between Rome Little Theatre and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation to be used in whatever manner the individual organizations deem appropriate in support of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia.

In addition to the $100,000.00 initial donation to establish the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund, both Rome Little Theatre and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation gladly accept donations to the Endowment Fund to honor Jason’s legacy and his many contributions to theatre as well as provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation.

Donations earmarked for the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund may be safely made  HERE or mailed to the Historic DeSoto Theatre, 530 Broad Street, Rome, Georgia 30161.
