LSC-Montgomery Visual & Performing Arts

Lone Star College-Montgomery offers a wide range of visual and performing arts programming for our students and the surrounding community. The Theatre Department’s season includes a diverse array of Mainstage and Black Box Theater productions such as classic, family fare, musical theatre and devised shows. Come hear performances by the Music Department’s choirs, bands, and orchestra, as well as weekly afternoon recitals by music students and visiting artists. Each spring, we host a dance showcase featuring performances by students in our Dance Department. And in December, join us for our Holiday Benefit Concert bringing together all the performing arts. The Mary-Matteson Parrish Art Gallery hosts monthly exhibitions from a variety of national and international artists with associated receptions where the public and students can meet and ask questions of the artists. The Art Department also puts on a series of lectures and workshops from professionals in the visual arts, curatorial fields, and the humanities.

Arts & Culture

Updates about our season will be posted through our social media accounts. Make sure to follow us on: 


Classes in studio arts and design – including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and photography. Students have the opportunity to exhibit their work at LSC-Montgomery's Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery.

Participate in a variety of vocal and instrumental performing ensembles, including operas, major choral works, string ensemble, symphonic band, jazz ensemble, and solo repertoire from diverse genres.

Training students in characterization, movement and vocal production. In addition to theatre classes, students may participate in a variety of full length productions – dramas, comedies and musicals – at LSC-Montgomery's Mainstage Theatre.


The benefits of learning and experiencing dance extend beyond the technical development of physical skill. Dance enriches, enhances and enlightens. It can foster discipline and instill confidence with a sense of accomplishment.

Live entertainment technicians enhance live performances by affecting the audience's senses - using audio, video and lighting technologies appropriate to the production and its environment. LSC-Montgomery is the only school in Texas to offer an associate degree in live entertainment technology.
