The Pied Piper Players, now the Lakeland Community Theatre, was founded in 1986 to, as its website procalims "provide an affordable, high quality theater experience for the people of Lakeland and its surrounding areas and to provide an opportuity of all ages to develop and showcase their talents in a safe, nurturing, educational environment."
It began with a group of volunteers producing two children's plays per season as a way to introduce children and their families to live theater. Today, the original pied Piper Players has grown into a lively community theater group with a Main Theater season of five productions, plus three youth production and a host of workshops, summer camps and classes. Its partnership with the City of Lakleland has allowed it to call the city owned Lake Mirror Center Theater Complex home for its nearly 200 major productions over more than twenty years.
This small collection of posters for a number of the theater's productions provides some sense of the depth and range of the theater troupe in its efforts to bring live theater to the citizens of Lakeland.
