Develop skills, discover fun, enjoy the performing and the involvement. Community theatre is an exciting and wide open world of many disciplines and infinite possibilities.

There is an almost infinite depth and possibilities for creativity and involvement in theatre that it’s hard to put it into words, though words are certainly a part, as is art and performance and engineering and sound and set design and set construction and working together and so much more.

While we are just in the beginning stages of organizing a Community Theatre (if you are interested let us know!), we do have an ongoing monthly:

Readers Theatre Group

Get together with others to read a play script. No rehearsals, no memorizing, no experience needed. All you need is the interest and willingness to "play a role" while seated in a chair reading your part. The "stage" will be in our minds and imagination, as will the characters, costumes, and sets. The only audience will be your fellow participants (who will be very understanding and helpful!). This is for fun, not fame, so don't worry if you "don't know how"; we learn as we go.

** next Readers Theatre: Tuesday, May 8, 6:30 pm.

Play: Arsenic and Old Lace - Joseph Kesselring

Contact:  Georgia Peitsch - Email theatre@LakeEffectArts.org, or phone 341-0042.

LECA RT is open to anyone interested. If you would like to be on the email list for upcoming plays and information let us know. Usually we meet the 2nd Tuesdays of the month at the Manistique/Schoolcraft Welcome Center on US2 (the building with the Paul Bunyan statue in front of it). Plays are often in PDF format emailed to participants. Contact Georgia if you are interested in participating.
