Local. Seasonal. Organic. Pastured. Unprocessed. Unpackaged.

From lunchtime repasts to post-performance nibbles, delicious meals nourish LRT artists.  

Our focus on food began with rehearsals for The Seagull. Randolyn brought lunch for the cast every day, then orchestrated a picnic for a scene that doesn’t appear in the play: Konstantin’s 12th birthday party. Rocky (Masha) baked traditional Russian cookies (Kostya’s favorite) and wrote a poem. Mike (Konstantin) penned a short play. With wine, a basket packed with Russian cheese, black bread and grapes, a tasty tradition began.

Sharing food is caring and promotes a strong social bond. Good meals spur conversation. Eating real food grown in local Vermont farms fills us with light. Eating together is an embodied experience that translates to our work onstage.
