Enjoy a Good Murder Mystery? Coming October 27-29. -

Lakeland BoxOffice - Wednesday, October 04, 2017
How better to end a long hot summer and begin a cool fall season; A good murder mystery, of course. Add a little comedy and some really good food and you have a recipe for a most fun time. Come and try your skills as a detective at the Lakeland cabaret theater. 

Come meet a wealthy southern family with a not so secretive agenda to acquire the wealth of their beloved.. Well, maybe not beloved family patriarch, by any means necessary.

Our narrator (Will Skinner) will guide you thru a web of lies surrounding Fat Daddy (Tony Hall) the family Patriarch. The ones to watch include his lovely Wife Sweet Mama (Tia Bedwell), Daughter Hyacinth (Mandy Outman Matthews), Son Earl (Andrew Hyman) and wife Savannah (LaVontae Wilson), and of course the farm hand that’s just like family, Clete (Brian Waugh) in his First Lakeland role. 

This bunch of characters are out for blood and there’s just no telling what they might do next. But don’t worry, in case they get out of hand, we will have local law enforcement on standby, Officer Bainbridge (David Lashley) has agreed to be our security for the evening.

Church Basement Ladies - Group Rates -

Lakeland BoxOffice - Friday, August 25, 2017
Lakeland Theatre & Cultural Arts Center cordially invites you and our Church family to join us for our production of Church Basement Ladies.
Church Basement Ladies, a celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and the problems of a rural Minnesota church. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, the book and music give us a touching, funny look at their lives as we see them handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fundraiser, and a steaming hot July wedding. 

They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they begin to see the Church year unfold from below the House of God.

Lakeland offers special rates for groups:
-groups of 15+: $14.00/person
-groups of 30+: $13.00/person
For every 10 tickets sold as a group, your church will be entered for a chance to win a BRAND NEW Maytag freezer (15 cu. Ft) valued at $550.
