Performing Arts

Dramas such as To Kill A Mockingbird, Eleemosynary and 100 Saints You Should Know, stimulate our thoughts and may break our hearts. You Ought To Be In Pictures, Spring Fling and Becky’s New Car lighten our souls and urge us to laughter. Performances engage the viewer, creating a connection between actors and patron and patron with the rest of the audience. Live theater: no other experience compares.

Off Premise Events

lscfta cemetary tour

Believing community interaction an important component of our group’s mission, we sometimes leave our facility to benefit the village. The fall Cemetery Walk combines the efforts of LSCFTA, Patterson Library, Chautauqua County Historical Society and Westfield Cemetery Association.

Class Reunion Weekend will find us hosting a Spirit Gathering in Moore Park to recognize Westfield Academy and Central School graduates and staff who have passed. You never know where we might show up during Christmas in the Village or on First Fridays.

Long Term Projects

Mural Project: Hoping to transform some drab areas of the village into refreshed, colorful, and inviting spaces, we are spearheading a decorative mural project. We plan to sponsor the painting of murals on some walls in our community that need refurbishment, yet another draw to Westfield, NY.

A big thanks to all our supporters!
