Special and Community Events

Lindenwood University and the J. Scheidegger for the Arts are dedicated to not only enriching our campus population, but also our community members in St. Charles and St. Louis counties.

Since 2008, the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts has played host to an impressive list of artists, entertainers, and touring productions, including Jay Leno, Willie Nelson, Bernadette Peters, Amy Grant, The Beach Boys, and the national tours of CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Movin’ Out. Our 2016-2017 season is no exception. From laughs to legends to Broadway, there is something for everyone, and it’s all Live at Lindenwood!

 In addition to our touring and academic events, several community groups use our facilities to offer exciting entertainment throughout the year, that information can be found here. If you are interested in rental opportunities, please contact Kathleen Eads, Director of Theater Operations.
