Musician Mendeleyev will be the first performer in a new virtual concert series presented by Santa Barbara's Majorie Luke Theater beginning September 18th. The shows are streamed for free on the theater's website, www.luketheatre.org

A historic South Coast theater is one of many in the region closed by the coronavirus crisis.  But, Santa Barbara's Majorie Luke Theater is now being used to create performance webcasts, with its first production premiering this week.

It's one of a series planned for the eight decade old theater, which is on the Santa Barbara Junior High School campus.

KCLU's Lance Orozco talks with the theater's Rod Lathim.
