Since Johnny Carson Theater is being used for a dressing room, it will not be available for pickup.  At the end of the show, please pick up your dancers at the Johnny Carson Entrance or other preplanned meeting place.  Thank you!

Happy Nutcracker………We finally made it to the Stage, Hallelujah! Merde’, and Happy Showtime to all! This is well deserved, and attributed to all that persevered! So, thank you to all dancers, families, LMBC Board, Volunteers, LMBC Guild, LMBC Staff; both Artistic & Technical Staff for making the effort, determination, sacrifice, bringing your time and talent to keep believing in “THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!” We did it.
