Welcome to the 2021-2022 touring series at the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts at Lindenwood University! Since we last opened our doors to you, we have undergone exciting changes. We have some new faces, a brand-new ticketing system, and a theater that meets the highest standards of cleanliness and safety. We are ready to welcome you, because no matter what positive changes we have made, it all means nothing without you in the theater!
This season was designed to appeal to a wide variety of audience members; there’s a little bit of everything for everyone, and performances for all ages. Being with family and friends is a very important component for quality of life and this season is meant to appeal to everyone in the group. Our season opener, Masters of Illusion®, will delight and awe all members of the family and The Haggard Brothers will bring you back to a simpler time of country western in their musical tribute to their dad, Merle, along with special guest EmiSunshine – one of Rolling Stones “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” The Southern Fried Chicks will be one big laughfest; so, plan a girls’ night out, have fun and let loose. A Very Electric Christmas will be a special holiday treat for all with their amazing technological storytelling. Pull out your dancing shoes because Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party is coming to Lindenwood! If you have never experienced one of their shows, you will not be disappointed. Cirque Mechanics will bring their feats of engineering and acrobatics to the stage in “Birdhouse Factory.” Terry Fator will delight with his mastery of ventriloquism and the incomparable music of Tower of Power will literally bring you to your feet. Last, but not least, one of the most influential and revered jazz masters, Branford Marsalis, and his award-winning quartet will close out the season.
We are also pleased to offer another way to purchase tickets this year: pick-a-pack. By picking at least four shows, you’ll earn a discount without having to commit to every show!
I hope you are excited about these incredible artists and the opportunity to see them live in our intimate, beautiful theater. Share the joy of live performance with your loved ones, and we look forward to seeing you at the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts soon.
