CenterStage in Lake Forest. For more than 45 years, a Lake Forest treasure.

Our Mission

CENTERSTAGE IN LAKE FOREST is a not-for-profit community theatre group founded in 1971 which offers the opportunity for families and individuals of all ages to participate in every aspect of fully-produced theatrical presentations of classic Broadway musicals and plays, theater for young audiences, and community based talent shows. CenterStage is a collaboration of amateur and professional performers, musicians, directors, artisans, and audiences who are rewarded with an inspiring artistic and educational experience.

Take a look…

…at some of our past shows. They may fill you with a thrilling memory of a night in the theater….right here in Lake Forest.

Or….you just might be amazed at what you have been missing. Right on Illinois Road, just east of Western Avenue, in the Gorton Community Center.

Get to know us. We’ve been here for more than 2 generations.  And with your help, we may stay 2 more.
