See a summer play at Lakewood Theater

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Lakewood Theater

Lakewood Theater in Madison has been presenting shows since 1901 on the western shore of Wesserunsett Lake. The season runs from late May to mid-September and includes musicals, dramas, comedies and shows for kids. On a historical note, the theater’s first life was as an Indian campground, then it became an amusement park until a gent named Herbert L. Swett took the reins with a different vision. “The Private Secretary” was its first play, back in June in 1901. If those old walls could talk, the stories they could tell. Become part of the history with a visit of your own.
