Children’s Theatre and Music Man Make for a Big Summer at LCT 


(Le Mars) – If you are someone who has been interested in getting involved with theater in Le Mars, there’s plenty of opportunity with the Le Mars Community Theater at the Postal Playhouse this summer.  Youth are invited to participate in a the 2nd Annual Children’s Theater production as part of the Ice Cream Days line up at the the Olsen Cultural Events Center Stage Saturday, June 18th. The show they will be performing is The Internet is Distract—OH LOOK A KITTEN! By Ian McWethy, a comedy that mocks the internet as a wacky place where boxing cats, Facebook lurkers, and pig-throwing games threaten to take over a student’s schoolwork.  Children from ages 4 years old through High School can help with performing a variety of tasks from acting, directing, costume, stage management, prop assistance, and technical support.  Rehearsals will kick off with a family information meeting on Tuesday May 31 at 6:00pm at the Le Mars Public Library meeting room. Visit the LCT website at to register.

And for young and well seasoned thespians alike, auditions are coming up for the Le Mars Community Theatres production of Meredith Willson’s The Music Man.  This classic, crowd pleasing, Iowa loving musical will feature 20-25 performers ages 8 and up and will be performed late July/early August.

Audition times are:
Monday May 9th: 7-9pm for kids ages 8-16 only.
Tuesday May 10th: 7-9pm for kids and adults.
Monday May 16th: 7-9pm, adults only.
Tuesday May 17th: -7-9pm, adults only.

Le Mars Community Theatre is a volunteer organization.  There are many jobs, large and small, that need to be done to make productions like these come together for the community to enjoy.  If you don’t wish to be on stage, the board of directors at LCT says they are always looking for volunteers to help with sets, lighting, sound and more.
