Presented by Lakeshore Players Theatre

After much thought, planning, creating, and discussion on how we can continue to bring the arts to our phenomenal community even though we currently cannot gather at the theatre, Lakeshore Players Theatre is proud to present QUARANTINE CABARET!

Join us every Friday at 5:00 pm for a new episode of QUARANTINE CABARET to be released on our Facebook and Instagram pages, along with our YouTube channel and website. These episodes will feature performances by some of our favorite LPT Community Members. We've got singing, dancing, sketch comedy, and who knows what else!

In addition to our QUARANTINE CABARET, we are also launching our LPT Artist Fund to help support our artists during these difficult times. If you are interested in donating, you can do so by following this link: https://bit.ly/LPTArtistFund.

We are so excited for you to watch the amazing talent we have lined up. We look forward to seeing you here at 5:00 every Friday for some entertainment and community! #LPTCommunity #LPTQCab
