LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - With the pandemic, many programs have suffered including the performing arts.
The La Crosse Community Theatre (LCT) has had to re-invent itself to bring art to the area.
Jase Sullivan, the Executive Director for the La Crosse Community Theatre, said that with the news regarding our nation's progress with administering the vaccine, it is one step closer to welcoming patrons back to the theatre.
During the pandemic, LCT has hosted a drive-in show at Altra Credit Union and even an online virtual video on demand show called Miracle on 34th Street. Sullivan said it's not quite the same.
He said that inviting people back inside the theatre could involve several things, like wearing a mask, social distancing, or both.
The La Crosse Community Theatre has also formed an HR Committee consisting of community members, HR specialists, and board members to create a new sexual harassment policy.
"We as a whole are looking at inclusion, diversity, equity, and access in all of our programming and hiring," Sullivan said. "We want to make sure that the entire Coulee Region is represented at this theatre. In the past, it hasn't looked that way, and we want to make sure everyone feels welcome, and everyone's stories are being told at the theatre."
LCT is looking to hire someone new for an upcoming position, an Education and Inclusion Director. This individual will be a senior member of the staff that helps staff with hiring methods and making sure inclusion is at the forefront of every program.
