Well, here we are at the beginning of the 2015-2016 Lake County Theatre Company season! First up, of course, is next weekend’s Mr. Lake County.
Our Second Annual Mr. Lake County Contest will be on 8at the Little Theater on the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport. The show will begin at 8 pm, and if it’s anything like last year’s show, it’s sure to be a LOT of fun. The show is 18 and over only, so please leave the kiddoes at home. And come prepared to be loud and perhaps a little bit crazy! And keep in mind this is a fundraiser for LCTC, and all proceeds go towards the LCTC Building Fund.
Tickets for the show can be purchased at Pieces Boutique, 155 N. Main Street, Lakeport, right next door to Cheese’s Main Street Pizza, and at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1863446
In addition to the evening’s events, Saturday morning will also be the inaugural Lakeside Car & Boat Show at Konocti Vista Casino. The group organizing the event is donating all proceeds from the entrants to the Lake County Theatre Company, and many of the Mr. Lake County contestants will be present, making this a great way for you to begin your judging of the guys before the show that night!

The Lake County Fair is also on the horizon, if a little further back. As you may recall from my previous missives regarding the Spring Fair, we work customer service, greeting guests and being present for information; this time around, though, we will also be working the parking lots and the back gates and camping areas. In other words, we will need quite a few more people for this event. The fair runs September 3 thru 6. Tim and Laura Barnes will be organizing the work crews, and have already started gathering names. You can contact them in the following ways: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and at 707-533-3406.
And now, for the all-important reminder. LCTC is paid for the services we provide, and this money is essential to our ability to continue functioning at the level we have been. If it weren’t for this money, we would perhaps be able to put on two productions a year, and any large productions would be unlikely.
So, as with the Spring Fair, you can work so many hours for us and have your yearly membership fee waived! Due to the greater need of people at the County Fair, we ask you to work 12 hours in exchange for waiving your fee, and you can do this by working 3 hours a day all 4 days, or 4 hours over 3 days, 6 hours over 2 days, etc. And of course, if you’re in a particularly giving mood you can work even more than 12 hours! Because there will be those of us there multiple days for multiple hours, and we wouldn’t mind the support.
Last but certainly not least, I would like to introduce everyone to our new Board of Directors members! Joining former members Tim Barnes, Laura Barnes, Toni Stewart, and Barbara Clark, along with myself, Barbara Garrett, and Susan Garrett, who were both re-elected, are Tim Fischer, Rod Rehe, Judy Stelljes, Michael Kimbell-Auth, and Nani Phillips.
Our next Board Meeting will be next Monday, July 20, at United Christian Parish Church at 745 N Brush St in Lakeport, between 7th and 8th. The meeting will be at 5:30, following the Play Selection Committee meeting. Feel free to come to either or both; we’d welcome your involvement.
Take care, and I’ll be back early next month!
