Living Room Theatre

Donate to the lrt survival fund !!

LRT presents new and classic plays, driven by innovative direction, canny design and great acting. Audiences share in a unique theatrical intimacy that draws each observer into a more personal relationship with the play. 

In the summer of 2012, a production of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull was intended as a 25th wedding anniversary gift between founders Randolyn Zinn and Allen McCullough. After the potent combination of sitting close to the action resonated with audiences and actors alike, a theatre company was born.

 

Making theatre is a collaborative art.

LRT strives to make the world of each play multifaceted by using the outdoors, site specific spaces, found materials, music, movement and unusual staging techniques to bring scripts alive.

We rehearse with good cheer and imagination, exploring characters' needs and conflicts in thorough scene work and improvisation to reveal the depths and breadths of each script.

  Company members install a real cherry tree that was resurrected with silk blossoms for The Cherry Orchard – one example of LRT's dedication to making theatre simple yet specific.
