LWR Communities is proud to announce the formation of the “Sights and Sounds at Waterside Place” performing and fine arts series.
The program is meant to introduce arts and culture into the rich array of lifestyle offerings at The Ranch, which will help expand the relationships between these organizations and the residents, and the arts’ patrons and contributors.
The series is part of Lakewood Ranch’s signature programming, led by Nicole Hackel, events and resident experience manager for LWR Communities. “With performances to be held at the pavilion at Waterside Place, Sights and Sounds will bring arts and organizations that are part of our Cultural Coast to Lakewood Ranch,” Hackel said, “which will be a mutually beneficial partnership for our community and the local arts organizations.”
It began as individual events, which were successful with both audiences and the performing arts groups, and morphed into a permanent series, with events scheduled into next year.
Upcoming performances include Easterseals “Rock the Spectrum” in July, West Coast Black Theatre Troupe in September; the Sarasota Ballet Studio Company in October, Asolo Repertory Theatre in November, Out-of-Door Academy’s group concert featuring sounds of the season from chorus, band and orchestra students in December; and Jazz Under the Stars in February of next year … with more to be announced.
The events are free and open to the public; there is limited seating at the Plaza, but attendees are welcome to bring their own seats. Food and beverages will be available from numerous Waterside Place merchants.
