About this Exploration:


 
Lucas Area Community Theater building had sat vacant for eighteen years until March of 1999 when LACT began renovation. Within eighteen months, LACT and several volunteers had gutted and remodeled the exterior and interior of the theater building with over 4,000 hours of volunteer labor and $100,000 in donated funding.
 
Musical and theatrical performances, cinema productions and educational arts are a few of the multi-purpose uses planned for the theater. Completion of the project was December 16 of 2000.

The theater has movies at Friday and Saturday at 7 and 9 p.m. is operated by volunteers.
 
In October of 2005, the Lucas Area Community Theater began work on the dressing room/community room addition project through the Kansas Department of Commerce KAN STEP grant. The project was completed in June of 2007. The addition consists of a basement with storage, dressing rooms, bathrooms, utility room, and dance studio. The main floor/community room has bathrooms and kitchenette along with a community room that would hold 50 people for a meeting with equipment to show a power-point presentation or DVD movie. The community room can be opened up out onto the stage area for larger dinners for 100 people.
 
The theater is in the process of upgrading to digital 3D equipment in June of 2010.
