Lanesboro Community Theater goes to the MACT festival!

Last weekend we brought a cutting of "Almost, Maine" to the Minnesota Association of Community Theaters Festival in Dassel-Cokato. It was our first time participating. In addition to our performance, we were able to take workshops and watch other theaters from around the state do their shows. On Sunday morning there was an awards brunch. We were so pleased to receive a 3rd place plaque for our show! Not only that, two of our "duos" took home excellence in acting awards. Congratulations to the original cast, the festival cast, and the acting award winners Blake Norby and Barbara Benson Keith and also Ryan Lee and Pete Keith!
