Not just a community theatre, but a theater community!
It’s A Mystery! is the theme for the our 2018-2019 season, beginning with the classic comedy Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring. The plot involves two spinster sisters who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with elderberry wine laced with arsenic. When their nephew Mortimer discovers their latest dead body in the window seat, he fears he may have to break off his engagement to protect his fiancée from his crazy family. Show dates are November 16-17, 2018 at 7:30, and November 18, 2018, at 2:00. Performances are held at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, 27475 Five Mile Road, Livonia.
Director Pat Hutchison has chosen a cast including several Livonia residents and LCT regulars, and also welcomes new faces to the stage.

Livonia Community Theatre (formerly Paul’s Players) was founded in 2011 by Patricia Hutchison, a retired music and drama teacher. In 2017, the group changed its name to Livonia Community Theater to reflect its commitment to the city of Livonia.
Livonia Community Theater is a non-profit organization whose mission is to offer a quality theater experience that will entertain, enrich, and educate people of all ages.

Broadway Bound is a popular musical theater camp for middle school students.
Kids Camp for elementary students stages a mini-musical and offers fun music activities like African Drumming. The annual summer musical workshop alternates between large musicals casting up to 50 people of all ages, and smaller musicals for high school and college students.
