LCTC Takes “Beauty” to Both Sides of the Lake
Lake County Theatre Company Is bringing its next production to both sides of the lake. Why? “So that everyone can see “Beauty is a Beast!” without traveling too far,” offers co-producer Liz Jackson. “We figure that bringing a full length production to The Moose Lodge in Clearlake Oaks and the Senior Center in Lakeport will give our audiences a lot of fun while still keeping their gas costs down. A great night of theatre, air conditioning and a close venue. You can’t beat it!”
“Inexpensive fun is our theme for the ticket prices, as well”, states co-director, Suna Flores. “Ticket prices are low, $10 for general seating and $12 for reserved. Even the Saturday evening dinner show is only $25 for both the show and the dinner (which features tri-tip in both places!). We are working hard to produce a quality experience at an affordable cost. That way, everyone can enjoy it.”
And what will they enjoy? “A great comedy produced by a wild cast and crew that helps each other and laughs a lot. “It’s a comedy.... Of course they’re laughing,” adds William Mc Auley, student director. “I am amazed at the way we all work so well together even when we’re cracking up.”
“Although the show is not technically a musical, it’s full of music,” states sound man/ musician, Randy Hare. David Neft has put together a great musical score. “You can’t have a good show without music,” offers Neft, “and I am glad I can provide it.”
”There is no doubt that Neft’s music is essential to this show,” agrees Hare. “My part is to put together David’s sound so it really adds to the originality of this production. We are training a student sound and light crew, Joel Thompson and Mary Bosse and they are attacking their jobs like pros. It’s pretty impressive.”
“Beauty is a Beast” is scheduled to run June 13, 14 and 15 at the Moose Lodge in Clearlake Oaks (998-3740) and June 20, 21, 22 at The Lakeport Senior Center in Lakeport (263-4218). Show times are 6:00 pm on Fridays, 5:30 pm on Saturday evenings for the dinner shows and 2:00 pm on Sundays. Tickets can be reserved or purchased by calling or visiting either venue or Cheese’s Game Shop in Lakeport (262-5824). For additional information, feel free to call 279- 2595.
