Meet New Staff Member Colt Neidhardt

What are you most excited about working at the LDTC?

I am most excited about creating opportunities for our community to interact with our productions— whether through Panel Discussions, our Prologue & Epilogue series, or our yearly trips to New York City— we are always looking for opportunities for our audience members to get the most out of their experience seeing a production at LDTC.

What do you love most about Summit County?

I love the laid-back energy of living in a mountain town. It takes me 10 minutes to run an errand instead of the 60+ minutes it would take me in Chicago.

What kind of activities do you participate in Summit County?

I love hiking and fishing— I’m also looking for a basketball or kickball league to join— so let me know if you need another teammate!

Why theatre?

Theatre is the best way I have found to communicate universal truths about what it is to be human— the good, the bad, the funny, the chaotic. Theatre can change hearts & minds, raise powerful questions, and create empathy for cultures and individuals we may not have previously encountered— something the world could sorely use right now.

What do you think will be the most challenging and rewarding thing about your new position?

The most challenging & rewarding aspect of my position will be wearing ‘multiple hats’ and making sure I know when to be a teacher, a leader, or a student. I look forward to teaching the awesome young people of Summit County about the amazing power of theatre and seeing what we can create together!
