Our Summer Musical, "The Sound of Music" is cancelled

Dear Friends,

Due to the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home order and the challenges it presents, it is with a saddened heart that the LCT Board has decided to suspend our summer musical at this time.  We feel it is in the best interests of the health and safety of our volunteers and community and wish to do what is responsible to shorten the hold this virus has on our nation.  

We are hopeful that we will be able to present THE SOUND OF MUSIC as our Summer 2021 production.  Thank you so much for your loyalty, support and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you in the audience next year!  

In the meantime, we wish you all continued health, light, and love.

We are excited to reveal the cast for our Winter play, The Dixie Swim Club:

Sheree:  Michelle Rowley

Lexie:  Val Tindall

Dinah:  Sandy Webb

Vernadette:  Bonnie Hulsing

Jeri Neal:  Shawn Gorder

From the Director: "Everyone did such marvelous work during the auditions. There was such a wonderful openness and freedom displayed in the theater games and such a range of character readings. This was a very difficult casting because all of the auditioners showed an adept ability to play two or more characters! This is a very happy dilemma for a director to have!"
Congratulations to all!

December 16

6 pm - 8 pm

Discovery Faith Community, Lanesboro  

Show Dates:  

February 21-23 

February 28, 29 & March 1

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships.  The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.  As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them.  And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of “teamwork,” rally ‘round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.  A hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

We’re looking for 5 Adult women to play an age range from 40s to 70s.  Ability to speak with a  Southern accent is desirable.  No preparation is needed, but please come prepared for a brief session of theater games.  Please bring your calendars to note any conflicts.  If you can’t make the auditions, please contact the director at to schedule another time.  Rehearsals start in mid-January.  See below for cast list and downloadable audition form.  Copies of the Audition form will also be available at the audition.

Cast List

Sheree: The spunky team captain desperately trying to maintain her organized and “perfect” life and continues to be the group’s leader.

Dinah: The wisecracking overachiever and a career dynamo.  But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.

Lexie: Pampered and outspoken, she is the epitome of the Southern Belle.  She enjoys being married—over and over again—and is determined to hold onto her youth by any means possible.

Vernadette: Self-deprecating and ascerbic, she is acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life and has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos.

Jeri Neal: Sweet and eager to please, this former nun is capable of a few surprises of her own.

For all of these roles, the ability to speak with a Southern accent is strongly encouraged.  The ability to play a variety of ages through physicality and movement is desirable as is the willingness to wear makeup.
