Lakeland Singers: Looking for Singers!
A Message from the Director (Summer 2010)
Why Community Theater is Important
All shows are subject to availability from the royalty houses that own the rights and/or ASCAP, who owns rights to the music that we employ in non-musical presentations. Lakeland does not produce or condone the production of any shows where royalties and rights are not acknowledged and paid for by the producing organization prior to its presentation.
Glorious! - One weekend left! - 3 shows, June 18, 19, 20
The Lakeland Arts Centre build, features architecture that is a site to behold. Designed by Architects Bournemouth and built by Berkshire Builders. Feel free to come down and take a look at our fabulous building and join in with our community theatre activities.
A special addition to Lakeland’s 2016 Season is happening in June! Peter Quilter’s hilarious and touching story of Florence Foster Jenkins, “the worst singer in the world” is called Glorious!, and it will begin on the Lakeland stage on June 11th, running for two weekends, bringing warmth and humor to our audiences.
The joyful Florence Foster Jenkins had a passion for singing, but a voice of disastrous proportions which left audiences crying with laughter. Spinning from her bizarre recording sessions, unbelievable recitals and an ultimate triumph at New York's Carnegie Hall - this is a true, heart-warming story about a group of eccentric friends who lived their dreams. The triumphant West End production starred Dame Maureen Lippman and was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award as Best New Comedy. In addition we plan to put on a range of other entertainment to ensure our guests have a night to remember.
"A delightful, blissfully funny hit."—Daily Telegraph
"Hilarious and touching."—Daily Mail

The Music Man, Jr. - Opens Friday, July 16
A production of The Young People’s Theatre Workshop and Kids' Summer Theatre Camp.
An affectionate tribute to Small Town U.S.A. of a bygone era, The Music Man, Jr. follows fast-talking Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying band instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. This despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the Librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall. With many well known and favorite tunes such as, “Ya Got Trouble”, “Goodnight My Someone”, “Seventy-six Trombones”, and “Lida Rose”, you’ll be humming as you leave the theatre. The Music Man, Jr. opens July 16 and runs for two weekends, July 16, 17, 18, 23 and 24, with the 18th being a Sunday matinee.
