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!
Based on the 1988 movie Heathers, Lindenwood University presents Heathers The Musical, a darkly delicious tale of a young teenage girl grinding her way through high school, dealing with newfound love, and navigating the complicated and powerful clique the Heathers of Westerburg High. Heathers is a funny, honest, and occasionally homicidal new show based on one of the greatest teen comedies of all time. In this laugh-out-loud comedy we get an unflinching look at the highs and lows of high school, the familiar trials and tribulations of growing up, and a moving love story. By Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy
