J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts

Thank you for visiting Lindenwood University's J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts!

The arts are alive and well at Lindenwood, and we invite you to join us for a season of entertainment that promises to be our best yet! Whether it's the free parking spot adjacent to the Center just moments after leaving the highway, or that with only 1,200 seats our main stage theater lets you see the action like it's in your own living room, you'd be hard-pressed to find a venue as accessible, inviting, and friendly as ours.

It's all "Live at Lindenwood" and you don't want to miss a thing!

A Christmas Carol (Dec. 7-9)

Lindenwood University is honored to continue its yearly tradition of presenting Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This timeless classic follows the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge on a fantastic journey through time and space, forced to confront his past, present, and future through the aid of his spiritual guides. Returning to the main stage Lindenwood Theater for 2017, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit, and to reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas.

This evening promises to be a unique and rare opportunity to see these five stars shine together as one super group, and will be the perfect way to get you into the holiday spirit.

Wynonna & The Big Noise (Jan. 27)

The Irish Tenors (Mar. 17)

Join us for St. Patrick’s Day, 2018, for The Irish Tenors! The Irish Tenors have been the acknowledged Celtic music kings since they burst upon the scene during a 1998 PBS special. With 10 best-selling CDs to their credit, they share company with the likes of The Three Tenors and Andrea Bocelli as the biggest money makers PBS has presented. The Irish Tenors rekindled the love of all things Irish in America, and opened the door for countless Irish music groups to hit the United States.

In 2013, Paul Anka released a 14-song album entitled Duets which featured artists such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Tom Jones, Celine Dion, and Michael Bublé. Duets provides a musical journey through the life and times of Paul Anka and includes heartfelt liner notes written by Anka himself as an introduction to the classic songs he and his collaborators have chosen.

The Glenn Miller Orchestra (May 27)

We are excited to welcome the Glenn Miller Orchestra back to the Lindenwood Theater in May 2018. The 18-member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries. Additionally, it also plays some more modern selections arranged and performed in the Miller style and sound. Make sure to get tickets early, because just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is still the most sought after big band in the world.
