LALT is updating and consolidating its general announcements email mailing list. An email was recently sent to all members on the list. If you did not receive this message and would like to be added to our list please send an email to MailListRequest@lalt.org
We hope all of our patrons and members are staying safe and healthy. It is the LALT Board’s intention to assess the season when the Performing Arts Center (PAC) is able to reopen, and allow a three month lead time from announcement to production. In the meantime, if you have a memory or photo of a favorite LALT production, please post it in the LALT Facebook site!
The current Public Health Orders from the State of New Mexico and Los Alamos County still require that the PAC remain closed until further notice. If you have keys, please do not enter unnecessarily. If you no longer need your keys, send them to LALT P.O. Box 211, Los Alamos, NM 87544. Include your name, address, phone number and email. Eric Bjorklund will return your deposit.

To register your Amazon account with LALT as your designated charity go to smile.amazon.com/ch/85-0279625.
The current Public Health Orders from the state of New Mexico indicate that close-contact recreational facilities (including performance venues) must remain closed. This guidance is in effect until at least the end of September. Therefore, the Los Alamos Little Theatre Board of Directors has voted to suspend the 2020-2021 season. When the Performing Arts Center is able to resume operations, we will notify the shows slated for the current season in order to determine which are able to go forward. We hope to allow a 3 month lead time from announcement to first production.
Many considerations went into this decision. Above all we’re trying to be safe and follow state guidelines. We all hope we can resume sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, if you missed the theater, you can take a virtual tour of it with Ken Milder. Jeremy Smith, the Curator and Events Manager of the Los Alamos Creative District hosted a walk through of the Performing Arts Center for Los Alamos Culture on Tap with Ken, Tomas Farish and Eric Bjorklund. You can watch the episode in its entirety here.

In light of New Mexico’s “stay at home order” in effect until at least April 30 and Los Alamos County guidelines and the restrictions associated with the order, the LALT Board of Directors decided at its April 7, 2020 meeting to cancel the remainder of the 2019-2020 season through the end of May.
In keeping with the guidance from Los Alamos County regarding facilities, and in accordance with the Los Alamos public schools closure, the remainder of LALT’s season is on hold until April 6, at which time we will reassess. Hopefully circumstances will be clearer by that date, and we can make decisions regarding the rest of this season and the 2020-2021 season. Thank you for all of your support as we try to navigate these uncharted waters.

Taylor said LALT would refund patrons for tickets already purchased or credit them for another performance date. He said LALT hopes The Glitter Girls will resume performances on March 21. The postponed shows will be re-scheduled at a later date. Taylor emphasized, however, that the situation surrounding the coronavirus is changing dynamically and decisions will be made appropriate to the circumstances.and knowledge available. “We are taking this action out of concern and caution for the health of our patrons, cast, and crew.
