Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre (MLRT)
MLRT has stayed committed to presenting quality performing arts throughout the pandemic time by producing quality entertainment either in person or online over the past two years.
Their online production of The Jungle Book was placed on Youtube this year and has garnered over 4,000 views from young viewers from all around the world.
During the height of the pandemic MLRT produced “No Problem” a seamless presentation in two different locations via Zoom with the playwright present for a post-show conversation along with producing other virtual productions.
MLRT also partnered with Sierra Classic Theatre two summers ago to produce the first annual Mammoth Shakespeare Festival by producing two Shakespeare productions in repertory at the Woodsite that included an educational pre-show introduction before each performance that explored the history, background, main characters and how each play relates to today’s issues. This presentation was for all ages and deeply enriched their experience of the play they saw.
MLRT also created a pop-up venue by building out an empty 4,000 sq foot office space and turned it into The Annex where the first full-production in-person post-Covid play “The Women” was produced and the Eastern Sierra Mountain Film Festival used it as the location for its screenings.
MLRT also celebrated their 10th year of having Shakespeare Kids Camp this past summer with 19 campers from ages 6-15 performing Macbeth. The kids loved performing the classic tragedy that included battle scenes, murder scenes and death scenes… what more could a kid want in theatre?
