Welcome to the 30th Anniversary of the Lively Arts Season!

Throughout the years, the Lively Arts Series has brought the most amazing artists to your community here in the heart of Montgomery County. With our unique suburban setting, you can conveniently enjoy a season of world-renowned stars together with fresh, emerging talent without the hassle of traveling.

We are excited to present our 2016-2017 season to you—one of our best ever—which includes an array of genres spanning from jazz favorites to the satirical comedy of the ever-popular Capitol Steps to passionate dancers of the Koresh Dance Company. You will be amazed when you see self-taught jazz pianist and child prodigy Joey Alexander, who has played for Herbie Hancock and Bill Clinton, perform in our theater.

As always, it is our mission to not only bring the performing arts to the community, but also to enrich the youth at our local schools through our Young Arts Explorers programs. And, with our new Family Series, we offer shows for all ages, so you can enjoy special family time together. Please join us for this inspiring Lively Arts season! 

I look forward to seeing you at the performances!
