A playwright, actor and director, Keith Enloe has portrayed more than 50 different roles on stage during the past 35 years, many of them for The Little Theatre of Jefferson City (TLT).
Talk to people in the community, and several productions stand out, including his role as the king in “The King and I” for TLT and “South Pacific,” a benefit for the Hospital Foundations, where he served as artistic director, scene designer and performer.
A graduate of Jefferson City High School, Enloe said he started in theater through musicals and continued performing while earning a bachelor of fine arts in theater at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.
As an amateur playwright, he has had several scripts produced and staged locally and directed and designed more than 30 theatrical productions. A mayoral appointee to the Capital Arts Council, he has also served in executive leadership positions for the Missouri Association of Community Theaters and TLT.
“The Little Theatre is one of the oldest continuously existing community theaters and adds to the cultural fabric of the city,” Enloe said. “We present a show each year to eighth graders, including many kids who would never get a chance to attend a live performance.”
“Our audition process is open to the community and we provide an outlet for people who have the talent and artistic desire to be part of a theatre company,” he said.
