Welcome to GLAPA.

The Greater Lakes Area Performing Arts (GLAPA) is a group dedicated to enriching local culture through performing arts. Since our inception, we have established a reputation of providing well-received, quality performances.

With performances set for each season, we find talent, and raise funds to underwrite programs. The GLAPA board is comprised of multi-community-based, volunteer members.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Essentia Health for our 2015-16 season!

And we thank our sponsors for supporting the arts in our communities.
