The Los Alamos Little Theatre has announced a fundraising effort to support the purchase and installation of an assisted listening system in the Performing Arts Center, the facility in which LALT theatrical productions are staged.
“We have heard from many patrons over the years that their enjoyment of our productions would be greatly enhanced with an assisted listening system,” said LALT President Gracie Cainelli. “This system generates a signal that can be picked up directly by most hearing aids. They can be found in many facilities in Los Alamos County, such as Fuller Lodge and the Bradbury Science Museum.”
The system that has been identified for the Performing Arts Center will cost about $3,000 for parts and installation, and will include a limited number of headsets for those without compatible hearing aids.
“Los Alamos National Bank has committed to provide $1,500 toward the purchase of this system, or about half of what we need,” Cainelli said. LANB’s contribution comes through its community reinvestment program.
