Jazz, funk, classical — even comedy. There’s something on tap for everyone

Posted

Season tickets are on sale now for the Lakewood Cultural Center’s new season.

The center is bringing what they describe as “an exciting mix of music and theater” to Lakewood beginning in September.

The new season picks up where the LCC Presents series left off, with performances that had to be postponed due to the pandemic. 

LCC administrator Rita Sommers said she was overjoyed to welcome audiences back to the theater in September. 

“The Lakewood Cultural Center is all about people — what we create and what we experience together,” she said. “We are so grateful for the loyal support of our patrons over the past year and eager to see old friends and make new acquaintances.”
