Lakewood Theatre Company History of Plays Presented 1952 - 2016: 

Lakewood Theatre Company originated in 1952 as the Oswego Players and later changed its name to Lake Oswego Community Theatre. After the acquisition of the Lakewood School the company again changed its name in 1990 to Lakewood Theatre Company.

Lakewood Theatre Company is a professional theatre dedicated to the study and presentation of drama in all its forms; the training and development of actors; and the creation, maintenance, and operation of a theatre in which to present plays and other forms of entertainment. Lakewood Theatre Company is the oldest continually operated, not-for-profit theatre company in the Portland Metropolitan area. It annually provides more than 400 theatre artists the opportunity to learn and display their craft and attracts more than 40,000 people to its shows.
