 Want to Get Involved?

    From planning and auditions to collecting tickets on opening night it takes a village to put on a show. It's more than just actors. The producer starts putting a team together once the show is approved by the LRCT Board of Directors.
     Next come the auditions to fill the necessary roles and begin rehearsals 8 to 12 weeks prior to the show opening depending on the complexities of characters and staging.
    Meanwhile, a stage manager is enlisted along with technicians to handle lighting and sound, make-up, and set changes. A costumer is hired to outfit the cast in appropriate attire. The producer will also work with the set designers to build and dress the set. So much to do and so little time. It all comes together in a matter of a few weeks.
    Almost all of the cast and crew have full time jobs or are full time students so they donate their time and talent to LRCT because they love theater and yes they love the applause of a live audience. So please, look for our next production and please bring your family and friends to the show and support local theater in the Lake Region.
    Come join the fun!
