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.
