furry friends

If you are strolling down Olive Street and you pass number 29 you might be greeted by these feline friends from the safety of thier porch. If they aren't napping at the time.

Part of the Lakewood Theater history, and very much the present, is the Lakewood Inn Resturant. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food is amazing, the staff very friendly! A wonderful place to dine before an evening at the theater or for a weekend brunch. 

And they open this weekend! Please call ahead for reservations at 858-4403 and visit thier website for a sample menu and other information.  www.lakewoodinnrestaurant.com

special guest

A very special guest will be staying at the Sugar Tree Cottage for a few weeks this summer: we are delighted that MJ Clifford (and one of her cats, Willow) will be using the cottage while MJ is performing in the first two plays of the Lakewood Theater season!

MJ is very well known at Lakewood, as one of the founders of Curtain Up Enterprises and a member of the Cornville Players, taking the stage during more than thirty seasons! When she wasn't on the stage, she was quite often the one taking your tickets and welcoming you as you entered the theater. 

She will be reprising her role in But Why Bump Off Barnaby? during an encore run of the 2020 production, and also appearing in Four Old Broads, and Who's in Bed with the Butler? at Lakewood Theater this season. 

"Wee Willow" is the name under which MJ creates colorful cross stitch, and you'll find a selection available for sale in the Lakewood Theater lobby,  through the Wee Willow facebook page and some will be gracing the walls of these cabins on Olive Street!

My current personal project is turning the little artist room into a temporary bedroom, and then the Sugar Tree Cottage will be able to say a Lakewood Theater legend "slept here!"
