“Great Shows From Local Actors/Directors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

My wife and I love taking in plays at the LCCT, the cast is always lively and the choices of plays are always entertaining. Gala nights offer a meal after the show and a chance to talk with the performers.

“Great Entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is a wonderful little theatre and a great theatre group. It is always nice to see local community people expressing themselves in something they enjoy

“We finally gave up”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We have had nothing but one disappointment after the other with this theater. The shows are poorly directed and poorly cast. Most of the time we can't hear the actors and the movement on stage makes very little sense. The only good thing I can say about this theater is that the sets are wonderful. After that initial moment of amazement when the curtain opens on a great set, the shows fall flat and the stage design ends up being the star of the show. Not a good experience.

“An asset to the community”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

If you like community theater at a reasonable price, this is it. Sometimes the plays or musicals are very light fare, such as the "Nunsense" muscals, but sometimes there is heavier fare, such as "On Golden Pond." The shows are usually well executed and a pleasure to watch. The price is right-- $10 for adults and $9 for seniors. The theater is located in a former movie theater, so there are plenty of seats. I've rarely seen it full. One can get tickets online and even ask for the seating one likes (which, if available, you'll get). It's located on Main Street, which is being redone, bit by bit. This piece of Main Street has been redone, which helps because it used to be hard to get around the construction in the evening. There are refreshments -- cookies, coffee, and soda at intermission (for free or for a voluntary contribution). There is only one stall in the ladies restroom, so at intermission the line can be somewhat long.
