Imagination Theater (IT!) was founded in 1999 by Lanny Langston and Peter Wolfe. Together, they bring professionally administered, highly creative, youth- and family-oriented performing arts to our foothill community.

With nearly 60 years of combined theatrical experience, Lanny and Peter have led IT! to grow and excel as an award-winning performing arts company. To date they have produced over 45 plays including musicals, comedies, farces, dramas and children shows.

Over the years Imagination Theater has offered workshops covering all aspects of theater. Topics include: acting, directing, costume design, light design, sound design, set design and auditioning best practices. We have conducted three Musical/Drama Summer Camps for youth 13 to 21 years of age and through a generous grant, provide an intern program for high school students.

To tell good stories well, in an atmosphere of Trust, Respect, Personal Growth and Challenge.

IT! is located on the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in an intimate theater that seats 180. We consider our theater to be a cross-generational company which allows adults and youth to work together on stage and back stage in an atmosphere of respect and creativity. IT! has a large volunteer base who contribute in every aspect of running a community theater.

Imagination Theater (IT!) is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Public Benefit Corporation.
