  • La Crosse Community Theatre's vision is a continuum, bridging our heritage with our ever-evolving future, where the magic of the theater continues to resonate and illuminate the hearts and minds of our community.

Who We Are

La Crosse Community Theatre has been the Coulee Region's premiere arts institution since 1963 and is currently the primary resident of the state-of-the-art Weber Center for the Performing Arts which is nestled on the beautiful banks of the Mississippi River. Entertaining thousands of patrons each year, LCT now produces four main stage shows in the 450-seat Lyche Theatre, three black box shows in the 100-seat Veterans Studio Theatre, three staged readings, and a theatre for young audiences touring production. We also offer youth performance and education opportunities through our Star Academy, which provides classes and camps to local youth, and The Penguin Project, which invites youth with disabilities to appear in a musical with the support of a peer mentor. LCT is a member of the American Association of Community Theatre and the Wisconsin Association of Community Theatre.
