Performances in West Michigan

Everyone enjoys a good play or concert, and our communities along Lake Michigan are blessed with talented actors and musicians that entertain us throughout the year. Center Stage Theater at West Shore Community College is the venue for many interesting plays and performances, plus they have their very own wind symphony, jazz band, and concert choir. The Historic Ramsdell Theatre at the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts, in downtown Manistee and the Ludington Area Center for the Arts in downtown Ludington, offer a variety of performances. The Stage Left Theatre Company offers a variety of shows at different venues each year. And this is just to name a few of the venues West Michigan has to offer.
