Experience life on stage at LCT!

Anyone who ever wanted to act, from those with no experience to the most seasoned actor, is welcome on our stage. Part of what makes LCT successful is the diversity of our participants. Beginning with auditions and ending with the final curtain call, the production team and staff are there to help. Many novices worry about learning all the lines or succumbing to stage fright. Don’t let that stop you! During the weeks of rehearsals, your role and character will become second nature!

 


 An up-to-date resume or list of previous theatrical shows, headshot or photo, and a list of conflicts is requested, but not required to audition. We have a template available to download HERE and bring to auditions. You can also contact us at [email protected] to have them printed and waiting for you the night of auditions.
