Three Brothers Theatre

At the heart of our organization is the belief that theatres should be driven by artists. We do this by striving to be a place of opportunity, a place where artists can experiment with their craft, and a place that serves as an artistic home for many artists under our roof. Our theatre is driven by an incredible company of actors, directors, designers, and more.

James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts

The JLC is a state-of-the-art facility ideal for showcasing the power and value of the performing arts in Lake County. The Center features three performance spaces to accommodate professional touring events and concerts, as well as college music, dance and theatre department performances and productions.

Visual Arts Community Engagement

CLC's Community Art Engagement & Outreach workshops are part of an arts-integrated community outreach program through the Communication Arts, Humanities and Fine Arts Division. Our outreach efforts include four E.A.S.E. workshops, four A.T.A. workshops, several rotating small exhibits at Lakeshore Campus, and a large art exhibit at the Robert Wright Gallery at Grayslake Campus in May, which all are invited to participate in. Free Art Kits encourage attendees to continue creating and connect to CLC and Waukegan's art community through art, social media, and hashtags. Workshops emphasize creativity, process, and expression over perfection.

Performing Arts Community Engagement

CLC's PACE program creates opportunities for cultural, social, and historical expression and preservation through community engagement in the performing arts activities. The program provides College of Lake County performing arts students with opportunities for real world experience within the community while cultivating mentorship relationships with working performing artists, and aims to broaden and strengthen existing partnerships between the College of Lake County Communication Arts, Humanities, and Fine Arts Division and the Waukegan art community
