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 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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
