The Lakewood Cultural Center (LCC) is proud to announce the LCC Presents 2021-2022 season, bringing an exciting mix of music and theater to Lakewood beginning in September. LCC is known for its exceptional programs, offering intimate access to world-class performances in its 320-seat theater.

Create-your-own packages of three or more performances are now available at Lakewood.org/LCCPresents, 303-987-7845 or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office at 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth Boulevard and West Alameda Avenue). Tickets for individual performances go on sale Tuesday, Aug. 3.

After 18 months without LCC Presents live performances, LCC administrator Rita Sommers is 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. 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,” said Sommers. The 2021-22 season picks up where the LCC Presents series left off with performances that had to be postponed due to the pandemic. The other performances in the season bring additional energy and humor to the series along with some familiarity as audiences reacclimate to taking in live performances again.

When a die-hard musical theater fan puts on a recording of his favorite Jazz Age musical comedy, an extravagant fantasy unfolds in his living room. A Broadway starlet and her debonair fiancé, bumbling gangsters, a misguided lover and an intoxicated chaperone create an evening of madcap delight.

The Rocky Mountain region’s only professional period-instrument orchestra presents “Cross-Currents,” weaving together melodies in Baroque stye from Latin America and Europe. New discoveries in Baroque music and traditional favorites promise an unexpected and entertaining evening.

ETHEL’s Documerica | 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 17

Performed with electrifying virtuosity by the indie-classical string quartet ETHEL, this multimedia concert melds evocative imagery from a 1970s photographic archive commissioned by the Environmental Protection Agency with original music by some of today’s top composers for a meditation on America’s relationship to our land, our resources and ourselves.

TAKE3 | 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 4

This crossover trio of violin, piano and cello, led by star violinist Lindsay Deutsch, is genre-defying with a flair for the unexpected.

The Lao Tizer Quartet featuring Nelson Rangell | 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 12

This quartet delivers an explosive mix of jazz, rock, classical, funk and world rhythms. Led by keyboardist/composer and Boulder native Lao Tizer, the band features saxophonist/flutist extraordinaire Nelson Rangell, drum phenom Gene Coye and bass legend Ric Fierabracci.
