Meet our new Movie Makers!

Meet our eight new Movie Makers for 2015! They will each direct, shoot, and edit a movie for "Silent Movies in the Park After Dark" Sept. 12 and 13 in Sylvan Park at dusk! (This activity made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.)

Thank you!!

A HUGE thank you to the Root River Valley Friends of the Arts, who has gifted LCT with a new spotlight! We will make very good use of it, but we are sad to see such a wonderful organization disband. Thank you!   http://www.rrvfota.org

Volunteers needed to sell pop at Art in the Park for LCT's annual fundraiser

We will be doing our annual fundraiser of selling pop in the park during Art in the Park. We need volunteers to help staff the booth and also to dress in a costume to promote our summer show. Some supplies are also needed. Here's the info:
Sunday, June 21
Lanesboro Community Theater will be selling pop in the park again. The sales from this benefit the general programming of LCT. Can you help for two hours? It's usually a fun, relaxing, social day to spend in the park.
Set up: 9am - 10am 2 people Eric Decker and Barb Keith
Shift 1: 10 - 12 noon 3 people Eric Decker, ?????? and ?????
Shift 2: 12 - 2pm 3 people Eric Decker, ?????? and ??????
Shift 3: 2 - 4pm and closing 2 people Eric Decker and ????
I enjoy working all shifts for the LCT, but would appreciate brief reliefs for 15-20 minutes throughout the day, maybe when you stop by and say hello?
People in costume can stop by anytime to pass out flyers. In fact, you can stop by and pass out flyers even if you aren't in costume! 
Tubs needed NEED FOUR (Tom????)
Cash/change ???? (lots of ones and fives - Bill???)
Please reply back directly to ericjohndecker@yahoo.com, volunteering for the question marks.

Two Actors Wanted (paid positions)

TWO ACTORS WANTED (paid positions): The Minnesota Shorts Play Festival has been growing in popularity since 2009. Playwrights throughout the state and across the nation enter the competition, hoping their short play will be chosen out of the hundreds submitted for a place in the festival. For the third year in a row, a play written by Ruth Furan was chosen to compete. Two years ago her play "Wiener Dog Worries" received the "Best of the Fest" award and last year, "The Dog Park" came in second. She hopes to be able to continue this winning trend by contending strongly this year with her piece, "Food for Thought." Ruth is looking for two actors who would love to join in the competition by taking a part in the production that will play in Mankato either September 10th or 11th in the evening. The characters are "Cosmo" an evil alien leader (think Anthony Hopkins, Silence of the Lambs type character) and "Jack" the Captain of an intergalactic vessel (Jack could also be "Jackie" played by a female). Each player will need to commit to a few weeks of rehearsals- as well as working together with Ruth to design a minimal set, costumes and props for the competition. A $100 stipend is awarded to all plays that contend and Ruth will give each actor half of the stipend for participating. A $100 prize is awarded to "Best of the Fest" winners and if "Food for Thought" would win, Ruth would also give each of the actors half of that prize because of their total awesomeness. Let's bring Lanesboro to Mankato and show them how it's done! Contact Ruth if you are interested, or email bkeithdesigns@yahoo.com and she will pass the message on. Thank you!
