Lakeside Players Inc. (LSP) is a non-profit community theatre group formed in 1973 in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The Rhode Center for the Arts, which is owned by LSP Inc., provides the community with increasingly ambitious theatrical productions and other forms of live entertainment. The Rhode Center is home to two performance venues, the Donna Wolf-Steigerwaldt Auditorium and Skinner Hall, as well as The Pollard Gallery.
A full season of comedies, dramas, and musicals is presented as part of the LSP Mainstage Series, the all-ages Family Theatre Series, as well as adults-only performances in the Stage Noir Series.
This community-minded and volunteer-driven organization is also host to a variety of arts events produced in association with other creative groups and organizations throughout the year.
The Rhode Center for the Arts hopes to be your next creative outlet and your source for live, local entertainment.

It is unlikely that we will cancel a performance due to inclement weather. However, if the downtown area is not accessible for vehicular traffic, if street parking is banned, or if the Rhode Center venue is without power for an extended period; we may have no choice but to cancel. In the unlikely event that a performance is canceled, an announcement will be displayed on our website two hour prior to the event start time. If you have already purchased tickets to a canceled performance, you will receive a message to the email address associated with your order. Generally, paid admissions are transferred to another performance of your choice for the same production or, in some cases, to another production. Paid admissions can also be converted to tax-deductible donations. For additional assistance, contact our Box Office at email@example.com
