The gathering place in the heart of our community where people connect, converse, learn, listen, play and perform. Gorton Community Center is one of the only a few privately-funded community centers in the United States and serves as a unique partnership between community volunteers and the City of Lake Forest. The newly renovated John & Nancy Hughes Theater is a state-of-the-art performing arts venue that has become the signature of Gorton Community Center. Gorton has been proud to enrich the lives of residents through cultural arts, education and charitable services.
