POL is a great way to bring poetry alive for both students and teachers.

Accessibility upgrades


The Lincoln Community Playhouse installed a new Induction Loop System in both the Oliver T. Joy Mainstage and Studio Theatre. 
This system allows audience members with a hearing aid or hearing assistive devices that have a “t-switch” or “t-coil” to turn that on and hear direct feed from the theatre’s sound board.
Allowing listeners to hear the performance without having to deal with the background noise and other competing sounds.
“Adding an Induction Loop System to the Playhouse will make a world of difference for many audience members,”

Morrie Enders, Executive Director.
