If you are a fan of live productions like the ones that you find at the Lawton Community Theatre, then today's announcement is a welcomed one!  After a year of quarantine, and social distancing, the Lawton Community Theatre announces it's 70th Season for 2021-2022.

Productions from the theater’s 70th season will include “Aladdin Jr.,” “Annie,” “Clue the Musical,” “Nunsensations,” “Steel Magnolias” and “The Wizard of Oz.”

LCT's Executive Director Chance Harmon says the LCT Board are thrilled to be able to put on productions for this new season.

“After a year of being in intermission, we are thrilled that we finally feel comfortable announcing a season and we are elated to be moving forward,” he said. “When looking at shows for the theater’s 70th season, we wanted to keep things happy and light-hearted, focusing on the sun coming out tomorrow.”

Lawton Community Theatre will continue to be mindful of health concerns as the new season begins, and will continue to monitor conditions very closely, and productions are subject to change.  Rather than offering Season passes, just in case situations change, they are offering Flex Passes.  You can get 6 of them for $115 that can be used throughout the season.

“Although we are so close to the light at the end of the tunnel, the theater will continue to keep the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and patrons our topmost priority,” Harmon said. “We ask the community to continue to be mindful of the health pandemic as well and to work with us on keeping everyone safe while enjoying quality local theater.”

Audition and production dates for Lawton Community Theatre’s 70th season will be announced at a later date. All information will be made available on the theater’s website, www.lawtoncommunitytheatre.com.

Lawton Community Theatre is the longest continually running community theater in the state of Oklahoma. LCT has produced high-quality theater productions since 1952 with a mission to promote live theater and enrich the quality of life in Southwest Oklahoma.
