“I was born and raised in Portland and I didn’t think there
was any place else I wanted to live until I came over here with
my late husband Larry. On the way home I said, “you know,
I could live here,” and I think Larry nearly drove off the road
he was so happy. Now, I wouldn’t go to Portland at all if my
daughter wasn’t there.”

Wallowa County Chieftain
Director of the MidValley Theatre Company
Kate Loftus of Lostine is the long-time director (and cre-
ator) of the MidValley Theatre Company, located in Los-
tine. She has lived in the county since July 1994 –– and
put on a production that fi rst year. Now, after more than 20
years of success, and various theater locations provided by
the generosity of the community, she and her merry band
This appeal is will be heard on a Limited De Novo basis,
reviewing the issue of standing only; however, meetings and
hearings are open to the public. Those interested in attending
are encouraged to do so. For questions, please contact
OFFICE AT 426-4543, EXT. 130.
“Theater has always been an interest. I’d been working
with children all my life, I babysat for 19 years and had 21
foster kids for 10 years in Gresham and then became a youth
pastor for 28 kids. I’m very organized. I fi nally went back to
school at Mt. Hood and Portland State in 1986 and fi nished
up at Eastern Oregon University in 2008 to get my theater
degree. I married Larry in 1987 and by Christmas of ‘94, we
put on our fi rst play in Wallowa County.
What has Wallowa County taught you?
“Community! It’s such a giving place. Everybody is a
neighbor. We have a very diverse group of people but ev-
eryone gives everything they have. Larry and I said, ever
since we came over the fi rst time, “We’ve died and gone to
heaven.” The synergy you get from all these people is just
amazing. I’ve seen 28 people on the stage who have taken
each other into their lives – all because of theater.”
