Lehman Stages at Lehman College is a unique organization in CUNY. A hybrid of sorts. Not simply a producing or presenting entity - it is a community of professionals who are dedicated to nurturing the emerging artists here at Lehman and the Bronx. Not simply a rehearsal or performance facility - Lehman Stages serves as a bridge for the Lehman student between the academic and professional worlds of performing arts. Not simply a production services company - Lehman Stages creates opportunities. Opportunities for the community to come together. Opportunities for your organization to grow.
Who We Are
Lehman Stages is a professional component of the School of Arts and Humanities at Lehman College. Our mission is three-fold: to manage and develop the performance facilities operating under the auspices of the School, to create original cultural programming and initiatives that benefit the students of Lehman College and the Bronx community, and to provide comprehensive production services to our vital Theatre and Dance Programs at Lehman College.
What We Do
A part of the Bronx for over three decades, the facilities that comprise Lehman Stages have served as an invaluable cultural resource for the Bronx and the larger New York City community. Lehman Stages provides rehearsal, performance and conference space for arts, civic and government organizations throughout New York City and beyond.
The facilities are The Lovinger Theatre, The Studio Theatre, The Student Experimental Theatre or “S.E.T.” and The Dance Lab @ Lehman.
Lehman Stages provides professional training to the Lehman student and alumn through The Bronx Repertory Company, a theatre company in residence at Lehman College, Herbert H. Dance, a dance company and The Children’s Theatre Company at Lehman, a professional children’s theatre company that has performed for thousands of children throughout the Bronx and beyond. We also provide training and employment for student stagehands and technicians through our apprentice programs.
Lehman Stages looks to the future with a clear focus on its CUNY mandate to serve the people of the City of New York with professionalism and pride.
