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!


The Nick of Time Players (Mar. 25)

The Nick of Time Players are Lindenwood University's resident Improv Troupe. Make sure to check out their performance on March 25, as well as their complete schedule throughout the year!

The Threepenny Opera (Apr. 5-7)

Brecht and Weill turned to John Gay's 18th-century 'The Beggar's Opera' to fashion this savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality. Set in Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of the predatory outlaw known as Mack the Knife.

Spring Dance Concert 2018 (Apr. 19-21)

Our Dance Concert series concludes with an entertaining arrangement of pieces that highlight the talent and artistry of our Lindenwood dance community. The Spring Dance Concert will feature several senior thesis projects, along with new choreographic works from faculty, guest artists, and the Lindenwood University Dance Ensemble.

Spring Chamber Series (Apr. 20 - 30)

All Spring Chamber Series events will be presented in the Emerson Black Box Theater, and are free non-ticketed events, with the exception of the Voices Only performances.

Spring Fashion Show (April 21)

Experience the art and intricacy of fashion in a New York-style runway show. The show features designs by select upper level students showcasing a variety of landmark fashions ranging from ready-to-wear to avant-garde. The collections of these aspiring designers hit the runway blending complexity and innovations. This is a night you don’t want to miss.

Frankie Avalon (May 19)

Join us on May 19, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. as we celebrate over 60 years of incredible music by Frankie Avalon. One of America’s most popular entertainers, Frankie Avalon went from 50’s teen idol to a national and international star. In addition to his popularity as a top recording artist, Frankie became a motion picture star, appearing in over 30 movies.

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.

Blithe Spirit (June 8-24)

Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noël Coward. The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.
