Schedule has something for fans of every type of performance


The Lakewood Cultural Center announced its 2022-23 season, which will bring a mix of music and theater to Lakewood beginning in September. LCC is known for presenting vibrant performances in an intimate venue where the furthest seat is just 12 rows from the stage.

 The 2022-23 season offers a celebration of diverse cultures, up-and-coming vocalists, holiday favorites and performance art. Highlights include performances by SALT Contemporary Dance premiering works by Micaela Taylor, Olivier Wevers and SALT's Joni McDonald, fresh productions of familiar favorites by The Acting Company and a light-painting exhibition paired with jazz music.

LCC administrator Rita Sommers said she wants to invite audiences to come experience something new.
