Newsmakers: Lesher Speaker Series will spark debate and inspire; provoke as well as entertain.  All points of view are sought and diversity of topics is a priority.  We hope you will become part of the discourse and join us for the 2021-2022 Season.

Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all guests age 12 and over, and face coverings are required to be worn by all guests age two and over when visiting the Lesher Center for the Arts.
