Announcing Jesus Christ SuperStar!


We are so excited to announce auditions for Jesus Christ SuperStar – February 27 and 28th at 6:30pm. Run dates will be March 31st – April 23rd, directed by Troy Nickerson. Actors must prepare a one minute song, not from JCSS, and come prepared to move.

Town Hall Meeting tonight

We were so blown away by the community members that showed up tonight to support and speak with board members and staff of Lake City Playhouse. We know this has been an interesting and difficult transition for many, but the positivity and looking towards the future that were demonstrated tonight gave us so much hope for Lake City Playhouse and the community that we serve. We are so thankful for all of you!
