the best in community arts!


 LCA was born of the vision of two Lamoine women, Carol   Korty and Mary Henry.  Carol's backgrond includes   professional dance, directing, performing and writing.  She   is a retired profesor of theatre from Emerson College in   Boston.  When she retired to Lamoine, she shared her gifts   with the community first by developing summer Children's   Theater opportunities at the Lamoine Baptist Church (LBC).   Subsequently, Carol teamed up with Mary Henry of the LBC   to direct two church sponsored Dessert Theater events as   fundraisers.  Local residents enjoyed the opportunity to act   in these events, and from this Lamoine Community Arts   was born in January, 2008.  Since that time, we have   produced a major Fall Production each year and a Readers'   Theater production every spring.  We hold monthly   recreational readings over the winter months.  We   encourage and support Children's Theater at the Lamoine   School.  We have participated in the Maine Association of   Community Theater's Festival five times.  In 2011 we hosted   a Fiber/Fabric Arts Show and Demonstration at the Grange.   We are currently holding four Open Mic Nights a year,   where people come and share original or favorite poetry,   songs or improvisational pieces.  We are also planning a   variety of musical and theatrical events throughout the   year, including an MLK Day singalong and Black Box   Theater in the summer.  Our plays cover a variety of styles   and genres.
