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, concert choir and Collegiates. The Historic Ramsdell Theatre, in downtown Manistee and the Ludington Area Center for the Arts in downtown Ludington, offer a variety of performances.

Because of the restrictions imposed due to COVID-19, many events have been affected. Please check with the venues prior to planning to attend.
