Lakeside Little Theatre is a self-sustaining, not-for-profit organization, providing Theatre Arts to Lakeside residents. Since its inception in 1965, with the exception of gardeners, bartenders and maintenance workers, all officers and staff are volunteers, and each production is directed, staffed and performed by volunteers.
Now proudly in their 52nd Season, the Lakeside Little Theatre is the oldest English-speaking theater in Mexico. Unless otherwise specified, tickets to individual performances are $200 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.
