Mummers Wanted!

Call for mumming team actors and/or dancers for Nov. 28 and beyond!

Did you get to see the mummers during last year’s holiday season? This old British winter traditional rhymed drama is done by folks in villages all over the British Isles. Each village  has their own version. Ours was combined with Morris sword/stick dance last year, thanks to Tom Barnes' morris dance experience. Jane Peck was on a mumming team for 20 years in Mpls. Loved it! 
We will rehearse twice before our first street performance which is Saturday, Nov. 28 , 11-1 pm, Winter Windows in Lanesboro. We will go door to door a couple of nights during the holiday season in Lanesboro, or other towns if the group decides. We will decide rehearsals and performances together. 
Maybe rehearsal Sunday sometime and Tuesday evening?

Contact Jane Peck, ASAP, revels  or 612-823-0776

2016 Season Announcement!

We are so excited about our 2016 season! We hope you can join us behind the scenes, on stage, or in the audience.

Winter: We will be doing a series of Short Plays and we are looking for people who would like to dip their toe into the water and give directing a try. The plays would be short and you would have support to let you know what directing is all about. We need about 6 directors. If you are interested, please reply to this email very soon. We'll be reading through some plays in the next week or two. Give it a try! You'll be glad you did! 
Summer: We will be doing a musical in the summer. For all of our shows we will need people to find props, costumes, sewing, builders, graphic designers, stage managers, people to run the spotlight, lights, sound, producers, intermission, etc... Please let us know if you would like to get involved with LCT by replying to this email. Thanks!

Fall: We'll be doing the Silent Movies in September again and will be looking for people to become new movie makers! All training provided for this great skill free of charge. It's a lot of fun! Reply to this email if interested.

Silent Movie Thank You!

The Silent Movies in the Park After Dark 2015 was a success! You can view some photos HERE. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see the movies, to everyone who made movies, to everyone who helped set up for the movies and to everyone who was in the movies!! DVDs are for sale at the arts center. THANK YOU!!
We plan on having a new crop of movie makers again next year. Maybe you? Reply to this email if you are interested in making a movie. 

LCT Player Highlight - Olivia Obritsch

Olivia Obristch is a wonder! She and her sister, Sara, and her mom, Julie, have been involved in several plays with us including Leaving Iowa, Fiddler on the Roof and Mary Poppins. In Poppins, Olivia also choreographed a song. Not only that, she was one of our movie makers for the Silent Movies this year. We are so proud that this teenager has stepped forward into these leadership roles and done such an outstanding job with them! Here she is getting interviewed about the silent movies by the PBS arts and culture program "Off 90". Thanks, Olivia!
