Shakespeare in the Park starts Friday at bandshell

Summers in Detroit Lakes have long been a time to celebrate spending time in the great outdoors. Detroit Lakes is a also a community that embraces culture and the arts.

With the first-ever Shakespeare in the Park production set to open this Friday, June 26 at the Detroit Lakes City Park Bandshell, the Historic Holmes Theatre and volunteer director Nikki Caulfield are hoping to achieve a perfect combination of both.

Nearly 30 local actors will present the Shakespeare romantic comedy "The Taming of the Shrew," June 26-27 and July 2-3 at 7:30 p.m., and June 28 and July 5 at 2 p.m.

All performances are free and will take place in the Bandshell in the Detroit Lakes City Park, just off of Washington Avenue.

There will be a free will offering taken during each show, but no tickets are necessary.
