PRO-BONO HELP NEEDED:

The Position: The Loveland Stage Company is seeking a knowledgeable person for the position of Treasurer. Starting not later than October 1, 2020.

Background: The Loveland Stage Company (LSC) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation with annual revenue in excess of $100,000. The organization is dedicated to serving our community by providing quality theater and performing arts experiences. The group has been in existence for over 40 years and operates out of a historic building in the picturesque town of Loveland, Ohio. The group produces 4-5 major plays a year, as well as hosting a summer youth-camp program and a Christmas Show. The all-volunteer company is full of talented, dedicated and fun people who all share a passion for live theater.

The Job Description: The Treasurer is responsible for providing financial direction to and maintaining the financial books and records for the Loveland Stage Company. The Treasurer is an appointed member of the Board of Directors. The preferred candidate will have accounting background and skills. Knowledge of non-profits is a bonus!

As Treasurer, you will have these tasks:

  1. Maintain the financial books and records of the Loveland Stage Company. (QuickBooks is the financial software used, and a copy is provided.)
  2. Disburse funds for all expenses (usually via online banking).
  3. Present financial position of the Company at monthly Board meetings.
  4. Advise the LSC on annual and per-show budgets to maintain sound fiscal stability of the organization as well as accounting and tax related requirements.
  5. Prepare (or assist) year-end filings for Federal and State agencies, as required by law including Tax Return (Form 990) and 1099s.
  6. Maintain banking and other financially related relationships. (Banking – GE Credit Union, Paypal, utilities accounts, etc.)
  7. Check PO Box at Loveland Post Office about once a week.

The Time Commitment:

Generally, the position of Treasurer entails a few hours per week making payments and/or deposits and maintain appropriate entries in Quickbooks. Monthly reports are prepared with the accounting software. Board meetings are once a month and generally take about 2 hours. At the moment meetings are Virtual, but eventually the in-person type will resume.

The current Treasurer will be available to help with the transition and can answer questions about procedures. The position “officially” begins on October 1st of 2020, but the transition can start asap.

Please consider joining our Group. We would love to have you!!

Theater is BACK!

While the Coronavirus pandemic has closed down so many things, Loveland Stage Company found a way to keep theater alive – Radio!  While doing our best to keep social distancing and other good practices in place, our cast brings you The Importance of Being Earnest By Oscar Wilde, Radio Style!   As in the tradition of old-time radio, we will be releasing each of the three acts, one at a time (July 31, Aug. 7, Aug. 14).  The first act is available now on our Current Season page.  You can choose the “Radio Only” version, or the “Video of the Radio Show” version.  Both are compatible with your computer, tablet or phone!  Listen to us on the go!

There are no tickets for sale for these events, so won’t you consider a donation to the Loveland Stage Company?  You can donate on line by clicking the Donate button just above the PRompter on the right side of any page on our site.  Thank you, and…..

Enjoy the show!

***Latest COVID-19 Update – July 2020***

To our LSC Members, Patrons, and Friends:

In an ongoing effort to keep our membership, volunteers, and audiences safe in this uncertain time, The Loveland Stage Company has made the difficult decision to cancel the following productions originally scheduled for our 2020-2021 season.

Little Shop of Horrors
Spamalot
The Who’s “Tommy”

We are still hopeful that we will be able to put on “Mission Possible” in May, 2021.  Please see our Current Season page for more details.

In the meantime, we are actively working on programming that we can bring to you in place of these shows.  In July, we hope to begin a series of online performances in the style of old-time radio shows.  We hope to have a new radio show each month.  They will be posted on our website at lovelandstagecompany.org.  We encourage you all to visit our website and enjoy the shows.  Please feel free to make a donation to support LSC so we can continue to present quality entertainment even during these trying times.

In addition, we are resuming Margie Clegg’s ballet and tap dance classes at the theater on Saturday mornings.  See our announcement below for more information.

That’s it for now… everyone stay happy and healthy.

Dave Marcus
President, LSC

Dance Classes at the Theater to Continue!

Marjory Clegg dance and tap classes on Saturday mornings at the theater will continue for the foreseeable future.  In order to accommodate all who wish to participate, Margie has decided to hold two 90-minute classes rather than one 2-hour class each Saturday.  Each class will still be divided between ballet and tap.  The classes will run from 9:00-10:30am and then from 10:30-12:00.  Sherry Michalak will be circulating a monthly e-mail where participants can sign up for either class. Please remember that all classes will be limited to 10 people and masks are required.

You can make sure you are on Sherry’s e-mail list by writing her at shercasm (at) yahoo.com.

All are welcome!  For more information or to sign up, call Marjory at 513-683-6169
