In 1991 a small group of people purchased the community theatre hoping to preserve it and make it a viable cultural centre. The same year on October 11 "The Langenburg Arts Council Inc." (LAC) was formed. At this time, the council joined OSAC, the organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils. Since then the main focus of the Art's Council has been to ensure the viability of the theatre.
In 2005, George Layh, a retired farmer from Langenburg, gifted the Arts Council with $300,000 to renovate and build on to the existing old theatre. With strong community support, the Council raised another $100,000 to make the dream come true. The result is The George Layh Theatre, which truly is a centre of the arts in our community.
Right now The Langenburg Arts Council has 7 standing committees and 40 community members and is very well-known in Saskatchewan as
a vibrant, successful organization. Jan Layh, the president of the LAC, has been invited to speak at the annual OSAC conference about their success.
Over the years the LAC offered all kinds of art events and now offering:
- At least six performances in "Stars for Saskatchewan" series every year;
- Every second year presents musical or drama productions such as; Chicago, Annie, Little Shoppe of Horrors
- Organizes annual Adjudicated Art Shows as well as two travelling visual exhibits;
- Offers classes and workshops for adults and children;
- Organizes 3-4 movie nights per month.
