'Hang out in park, watch some Shakespeare'

Email News Alerts

When the Detroit Lakes City Park Bandshell was renovated a few years ago, it opened up new opportunities for outdoor concerts and activities -- including live theater.


This June, the bandshell will be the setting for the first-ever Shakespeare in the Park production by the Historic Holmes Theatre. Directed by DL native Nikki Caulfield, the production will be a "play within a play," putting a modern spin on William Shakespeare's classic comedy, "The Taming of the Shrew."
