About Us

Our Mission Statement

Lapeer Community Theatre’s mission is to enrich the community through theatre and to outreach to members of the community in order to promote the arts as well as unity within Lapeer and surrounding areas.

Our Origins

The group began as the New County Players in 1991 under the enthusiastic leadership of the local Episcopalian priest and former actor, Dexter Parish, ably assisted by his wife Darlene. The first play, The Nut Family, fortunately never saw opening night, but the second endeavor, Come Blow Your Horn, was presented in the Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall in June of 1991. Featuring Marilyn Beech, Larry Beeman, John Callaghan, Charlene Gibney, Joe Kotula, and Melody Munro-Wolfe, this play and its cast and crew were the foundation of the New County Players. In 1993, the group decided that they were no longer so "new", and changed their name to Lapeer Community Theatre.
