LCC has big plans for theatre season

The 2023-24 LCC theatre season has arrived and the Performing Arts Department has shared a list of productions that promise an entertaining year to be remembered.
Performing Arts Coordinator Paige Dunckel works closely with the cast, the crew, the directors and so on. She said it goes without saying that the anticipation of another year has infected them all, herself included.
“We are always excited to begin a new season, work with new students in performing arts programs and show our community everything we have to offer here at LCC,” Dunckel said.
“In addition to several music ensemble concerts, we have four theatre shows in our season and a couple of additional special shows.”
The play titles on the calendar are “Isaac’s Eye,” “Sense and Sensibility,” “The Thanksgiving Play” and “My Emperor’s New Clothes.”
“There isn't really a theme,” she said, “but each of the plays this season are very unique, edgy and exciting, taking on history, equity and tried and true stories.”
Aside from the full-length plays and musical performances, as mentioned, there will be short-plays, poetry and other performance pieces shared, written by playwrights from around the globe about climate change.
There will also be a special performance by the LCC Jazz Band featuring special guests and choreographed dance pieces set to live music. It’s a must-see for dance fans far and wide!
Dates, locations, times, ticket prices and more in-depth overviews of coming events will be provided by The Lookout at a later date, but everyone should keep an eye out for what is coming soon. To do so, click here.
These efforts to bring art and culture out of LCC students and to the public come at a cost and, as a reminder, donations are always accepted and appreciated.
If your wallet is too thin, remember, spreading the word also helps!
Anyone can donate to the program of their choice through the LCC Foundation Office, Dunckel said. Every dollar counts and every donor becomes a trusted investor and friend to LCC.
Lastly, Dunckel would like to remind the student body that vouchers to see a free show are available and that every student is warmly invited to attend one, some or all of LCC’s productions.
“We want as many students to attend our productions as possible,” Dunckel said. “Sometimes we hear that students didn't even know there was a theatre program. This season, like last season, students can look for season ticket vouchers at the StarZone, library and in our office (GB1222).
“The voucher is good for one free ticket to ANY show this season. We hope students take advantage of these and come see a show!”
