Arthur Gilbert and W.S. Sullivan
Pirates! Police! Damsels in distress! Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic comic opera about duty, love and the most honorable buccaneers you’ll ever meet! Join LCT as we look back at this hit show from our past!
Swept to Oz on a cyclone, Dorothy joins with the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion as she searches for home and family. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – A One-Act Play celebrates the importance of mind and heart; courage in facing what is feared; the need to dream, to dare, to ride out storms; the joys of loving, laughing, crying, being lost and found. Faithful to the original book, Virginia Koste’s play creates a fresh framework for Oz.

LCT is proud to be the first community theatre in our region to produce this epic, grand and uplifting show – one of the most popular musicals of all time. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from years in prison to begin the struggle for redemption, pursued by police inspector Javert.
