About LARTC

We are a 501c3 non-profit corporation dedicated to educating and enriching our mountain community. We believe that a theatre needs to be more than just a venue for entertainment. So we are dedicated to raising awareness of important local issue and local concerns to light.

Our classes focus on teaching our company members how to have their artistic voice heard, by producing works that are important to them. We help them bring these pieces to life on stage and on film.

 

In Lake Arrowhead, we are very involved in community issues and organizations, such as Youth Hope which helps get homeless youth off of drugs and back working into society. LARTC is also partnered with Mary Putnam Henck Middle School to create an Anti-Bullying program for it’s students. It was such a huge success that we hope to take this program statewide. LARTC has helped create the READ PROGRAM, a literacy program at Valley of Enchantment Elementary School and does a continuing literacy program at the Blue Jay Library. We  directed the plays and musicals for Rim of the World High School from  2009-2013.  We have also been working  in many ways with the Mountain Rotary's  Inland Regional Center, Career Institute and the Boys & Girls Club.
