Lexington’s Village Square Theater celebrating 60th Diamond Anniversary with Musical Revue

Lexington, SC 01/31/2022 (Paul Kirby) - Sixty years ago, a small group of Lexington citizens got together and decided to bring some artistic culture to the community. It was such a different place back then with Lexington State Bank on Main Street, Addy Dodge on Columbia Avenue, and a store called Wal-Mart still an unheard-of entity. This group started by performing plays at the old Lexington Elementary School Auditorium.


Since then, the Lexington County Arts Association has grown. In the process, George Boozer began a tradition of putting on regular musical revues! Later, a Junior Arts program was born thanks to folks like Charles Alexander, Phil Smith, David Swicegood, and Dolores Gatch.

Many years later in 1987, the only movie theatre in Lexington at the time came up for sale. With generous donations from the people of Lexington, the Village Square Theatre became the small troupe’s new home. Since then, The Village Square Theater group has produced full seasons of musicals and plays. They Junior Arts program has evolved and grown year after year!


As a part of their 60 years anniversary, Debra Leopard is directing a musical revue tribute to Lexington’s version of Broadway in your Backyard. It celebrates the Village Square Theatre and the Lexington County Arts Association’s 60 years of stage productions. The review runs from February 3rd through 13th 2022.
