The Historic Holmes Theatre presents: Concerts and Shakespeare in the Park, Patsy Cline tribute and much more
All summer long, the Detroit Lakes City Park Bandshell will be the setting for concerts perfectly suited for the outdoors as Tuesdays in the Park kicks off with the Lakes Area Community Concert Band on Tuesday, June 5, at 7 p.m. in the DL City Park Bandshell.
Then each Tuesday night at 7 p.m. through Aug. 28, there will be free concerts featuring some of the best area talent, brought to you courtesy of the Historic Holmes Theatre.
And before each Tuesday concert, from 6-7 p.m., Habitat for Humanity is grilling up hot dogs and burgers for a picnic dinner, so there's no need to pack a basket.
The 4th Annual Shakespeare in the Park production, the classic romantic tragedy of "Romeo & Juliet," will be presented on June 29-30 and July 1, 6, 7 and 8 in the DL City Park Bandshell.
Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday performances will be at 4 p.m. All shows are free, though free will donations will be accepted at intermission. A complete cast list and other show details are available online at shakespeare.areavoices.com.
Be sure to join Cassie & the Bobs on Friday, June 8, at 7 p.m. for "Imagine That: The Music & Magic of Patsy Cline," as they take you back in time to the early '60s to a concert featuring the biggest female singer in the country... Patsy Cline!

Keep the fun going and see area students perform Missoula Children's Theatre's "Rumpelstiltskin" on Friday, June 29, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 30, at 10:30 p.m. After a week of rehearsing, they'll bring this classic tale to life on stage.
Area students are invited to participate in the week-long Missoula Children Theatre's workshops June 25-29. We've added additional workshops this year so kids can add to their overall theatre experience that week.
Students are also invited to join in Youth Theatre Camp, Monday- Wednesday, Aug. 22-24, as they present local playwright Carol Anne Hough's "Garden Adventures." This intensive camp teaches ages 6-12 all they need to know (& make!) about the artistry and craft of producing a theatrical show.
The camps don't stop there -- we've got additional opportunities to let the creativity flow! From Ceramic & Glass Camp to two different Craft Camps with The Glass Lady, kids will really get their creative juices flowing.
