In 1977, a small group of motivated Lorain volunteers organized to form an organization that would provide musical theater opportunities in the summer months for not only school age children, but also adult theater enthusiasts. The intent was to create a quality, educational experience for the participants, while adding cultural value to our local community. This was the inception of Lorain Community Music Theater.
Since that time, Lorain Community Music Theater (LCMT) a 501c3 arts organization, has presented professional quality community musical theater productions each summer to the citizens of Lorain and beyond. From its first show of "My Fair Lady" at the original Lorain High School, area performers and volunteers have diligently worked, with support from local business and citizens alike, to give our area a taste of 'Broadway' each summer.
Literally thousands of people of all backgrounds have been given the opportunity to have an enriched theater experience by either performing on stage, assisting in the production, volunteering as Board Members, or providing general assistance to being our productions to life. This was the dream of the original founders, and it continues ever stronger to this day.
Charter Members: Ann Mesendik Jensen, Sharon Herzer, Marlene Koethe, Clarice Miraldi Larimore, Dr. Charles Nunley, Luis Sanchez.
