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!
