Now proudly in their 53rd Season, the Lakeside Little Theatre is the oldest English-speaking theater in Mexico. Unless otherwise specified, tickets to individual performances are $250 pesos; season tickets are also available. Many retired people here were show-business professionals, but can´t keep the greasepaint out of their veins. They continue to perform, direct or work backstage, thus passing their knowledge along to others.
Show times are evenings at 7:30 pm, except for matinees at 3:00 pm on the first Saturday, and both Sundays. There is no show on the Monday after opening night. Reminder: Opening night is Friday.
Season tickets are 1300 pesos (cuota de recuperación). A Season Ticket includes a reserved seat at each of the six Mainstage shows. Season Ticket holders are automatically members of the theatre.
Individual show tickets are 250 pesos each, with the exception of the musical, which is 300 pesos.
