The Lexington Theatre Company (“The Lex”) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that presents first-rate, locally produced, fully professional theatre for Central Kentucky. While enhancing the arts and cultural community of Lexington and beyond, we are also a training ground and performance platform for bright young talent – the future of American theatre.
First, by offering fantastic artistic and cultural experiences, The Lex will enhance the community of Lexington and surrounding region. The Lex will provide a product that will serve to further arts appreciation, community involvement, and hopefully have a strong economic impact for Downtown Lexington.
Second, The Lex will offer an educational component for young people. This will be accomplished by several means. These will include professional employment for collegiate actors looking for an opportunity to train in their craft, alongside veterans of the industry; apprenticeships and internships for high-school and college students in all aspects of the theatre industry; outreach programs for younger children to help expose them to the beauty and importance of theatre in their community.
