Since its start in 1995, the Lex-Ham Community Theater has striven to achieve its mission of producing quality theatrical experiences by and for the residents of the Lexington-Hamline and surrounding neighborhoods in St. Paul. The company has enhanced the local theatrical scene by - Selecting lesser-known works by noted playwrights, such as Soul Gone Home by Langston Hughes, The Vegetable by F. Scott Fitzgerald; and Motomorphosis by Vaclav Havel. - Giving the regional and world premieres of works by local authors, such as There's Talk in Town by John Solensten and Bullets and Beauties by Urban Landreman; - Reviving wonderful classics such as The Women by Clare Boothe Luce, Under the Gaslight by Augustin Daly, and All My Sons by Arthur Miller; and - Winning awards for Outstanding Performance by an Actor (Shad Cooper) and Sound Design (David Lind) at the 2003 and 2005 Minnesota Association of Community Theatres Play Festivals. The theater offers many opportunities for people to get involved at any level or time committment. Opportunities range from attending an evening reading of a play written by Shakespeare or which won the Pulitzer Prize in Drama to enrolling in a beginning or advanced acting class.
