We really enjoy Theatre Lawrence - the plays, actors, and venue all add up to a fun theatre experience. We especially enjoy the musicals. Their new building is just a gem - great lobby, displays and seating. Do try to catch a play when you are in town.

Theatre Lawrence is a beautiful new addition to the city, with a great line-up of shows each season, a fantastic cast of volunteer actors and actresses and great directors. The ushers and backstage crew are very helpful and dedicated, as well. Set design and technical/sound/lighting is all volunteer, too, with just a few paid staff positions and a board of... More

I've seen quite a few performances at Theatre Lawrence (including Footloose, Ragtime, and the Wrong Window) and I have never been disappointed. The scripts are of a high quality, the acting incredible, and the entire atmosphere of a thrust stage entertaining and comfortable. The facility itself is beautiful. Exquisite artwork is displayed in the main lobby, which is also graced... More

Very cute production. Loved the theater in the round concept, very Shakespearian. felt a little bit like a HS auditoriu outside. I think they could have done more to make it feel more like a real theater. That was the only downside.

I just saw "Ragtime" at this new theater, and it was wonderful. The setting was very intimate; you won't find a bad seat. The second floor seating is easily accessible by the elevators or stairs. The interior lobby area was very new and modern, had lots of funky local artwork, and they offered great themed refreshments (of both kid and... More
