Special FREE Touring Production from

Great Lakes Theater

A World Premier Production Written and Directed by David Hansen

Dreams become reality when one man's magical experience, while performing on a replica stage of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre during Cleveland's 1936 Great Lakes Exposition, inspires him to rebuild the original playhouse on the River Thames. From London to the shores of Lake Erie and back again, what's past is truly prologue in an inspiring tale of three Globe Theatres that are forever united by history.

American Enterprise

The dramatic story of industrial genius George Pullman's soaring idealism in confrontation with the effects of recession on workers in 19th century Chicago. A timely tale of capitalism, unions, and politics, and the toll they take on the lives they touch.

Our mission is to entertain, enlighten, and educate the diverse community in which we reside, by producing plays through the unique collaborative effort of community volunteers and the Theatre Department of Lorain County Community College.

Through this mission LCCC Theatre desires:

  • To serve the community by offering a diverse series of arts events, aimed at expanding the communities' awareness of the arts of many cultures, the accessibility of classic literature, and the many different forms of performing arts.   
  • To educate the college students and staff by providing exposure to the many different genres of theatre and affording them the opportunity to produce theatre themselves; in addition to working with more experienced professional faculty and staff.
  • To support the theatre community by providing serious and meaningful performance opportunities necessary to their development as artists.
