Lakewood Theatre Company

    About Us


    Over thirty-five years ago a popular acting troupe know as The Lakewood Theatre Company did their performances in unusual locations, such at their first production of “Our Town”, which was produced along the banks of the Cumberland River. This talented group of actors needed a home. Soon they found the old Becker’s Bakery, located in the heart of the Old Hickory Community and positioned in one of the oldest buildings in Davidson County, had closed its doors. But in 1983, Lakewood Theatre Company renovated the old building, gave it new life and opened those same doors to the world of theatre.

    A young architect who is visited by Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam.  Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party.  However, Rick's awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles.  It becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd" - a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact.  And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence.  A dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.
