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.
We hope you are well and we thank you for your understanding and patience.
LALT Board of Directors
This is an update to a previous post.
Los Alamos Little Theatre will not be working on the landscaping on May 9. We have suspended all action/decisions until after the governor’s next announcement on May 15.
Stay tuned for more news regarding the next season and our annual meeting. In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy!
Los Alamos Little Theatre needs your help with the landscape around the building. Join us this coming Saturday, May 9 from 9 to 12 to prune, weed, and pick up.
We will respect COVID-19 safety guidelines:
- wear your own mask and gloves.
- bring your own yard tools, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, snack.
- maintain a minimum of 6 feet between you and others while working.
- say hello to your friends from a safe distance and enjoy their camaraderie from afar!
The building will be open for restroom use only, no interior work.
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.
