Watch for more information about the Theater's storm damage and sign repair. The Lucas Theater has installed a new sign for the front of the Theater to replace the existing wood sign with a metal sign with Lucas Community Theater, funded in part by the Russell County ED/CVB. The hail storm on April 24th damaged the neon and chasing light sign that said THEATER, so it has been taken in for repair. The neon sign has been repaired and reinstalled. The front of the theater has been repainted and the green strips of pvc that the Kids For Christ youth group painted last fall have been attached. New speakers were installed along downtown main street just in time for the Adam's Apple Festival parade on August 29th and the Sunflower Visual Arts Festival on Oct. 24. We are currently fundraising towards two electronic signs for movie and theater activities advertisement to replace the current changeable letter signs on each side of the front theater sign. The Lucas PRIDE Committee is also looking for funding to replace the community sign at Main and First Streets with an electronic sign.

Lucas Area Community Theater, Inc. (LACT) currently consists of a group of eleven people who have renovated the old ISIS Theatre. The 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 4000 hours of volunteer labor. Musical and theatrical performances, cinema productions and educational arts are a few of the multipurpose uses planned for the theater. Completion of the project was December 16th of 2000. Watch for upcoming show dates and live productions!
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 powerpoint presentation or DVD movie. The community room can be opened up out onto the stage area for larger dinners for 100 people.
