Curtain Up Productions


In 1999 a group of community minded individuals saw a need for quality live theatre in the Lockport community. In April of 1999 they formed the production company Curtain Up Productions and produced their first performance Jesus Christ Superstar, which was met with rave reviews.

For the past 23 years, Curtain Up Productions has provided Lockport, and the surroundings communities with exceptional entertainment, raising the bar with each production. Some fan favorites include, Les Miserables, Singing In The Rain, Shrek the Musical, Beauty and the Beast and Young Frankenstein.
