Meet the Directors for the Lubbock Community Theatre 2021-2022 Main Stage season.
Heather May (LCT’s Executive Director) will be directing “Clue” for our opening production (Sept. 17-19, 24-26). As you may remember, we were one week away from opening “Clue” before Covid shut everything down, so we felt that it was a no-brainer to open with this show. (Get it—“no-brainer”—solving grisly murders!!) Heather has directed many productions for LCT, including “9 to 5: The Musical”, “Legally Blonde” , “The Addams Family Musical” and “Over the River and Through the Woods”
Zachary Kocurek-Gentry is directing “The Cake” (Oct 15-17, 22-24) for LCT. Zach is the theatre director at Lubbock High School and his most recent production placed 3rd at 5A State UIL one act play competition. For LCT, Zach has directed “Matilda: The Musical”, and most recently directed a one-act play version of the moving “26 Pebbles” for a UIL one act play workshop sponsored by LCT.
Patrick Alan is directing his first production for the Lubbock Community Theatre—the hilariously exciting Hitchcockian thriller “The 39 Steps”(Jan 28-30, Feb. 4-6). Patrick is currently an MFA Performance and Pedagogy student at Texas Tech with a strong interest in directing.
Jay C. Brown is the Artistic Director at LCT and will be directing “For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday” (March 25-27, April 1-3) this season. Jay has directed numerous productions for LCT including “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, “Other Desert Cities”, Godspell” and most recently “The Diary of Anne Frank”.
April Langehennig will be directing “Pipeline” (April 15-17, 22-24). April has just begun a new position this year as head of the Theatre Department at Howard College in Big Spring. In the past, April directed “Anne of Green Gables” and “Crimes of the Heart” for LCT and has served as technical director on numerous productions.
Dea Young-Smith will be taking on Seymour and Audrey (all the Audrey’s) when she directs “Little Shop of Horrors” (May 20-22, 27-29). Dea directed “The Complete History of Shakespeare: Abridged” for LCT and has directed and costumed many productions in numerous theatres.
New Home. New Season. New Beginnings.
