Apparently, I haven't mentioned the Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park (held in Franklin Park throughout much of July and August 2011) since 2008, so it's high time for a reminder about this historic series. Anyone familiar with Boston knows that there are regular concerts and free movies on the Hatch Shell, Shakespeare in the Park in Boston Common and an array of festivals and concerts throughout the city during the summer months. What a lot of people don't realize, is that there are also events happening in Franklin Park. The Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park has a great lineup of events this summer:
Tuesday evenings at 6PM
July 12th - E-Water Band (your favorite dance music from the 70s, 80s, 90s)
July 19th - We Jazz Up: Frank Wilkins & Friends (great jazz for a summer night)
July 26th - Zili Misik (all women's Afro-Caribbean jazz)
Tuesday morning shows at 11:00am -dance, drums, and music for summer camps and families.
July 12th - Stajez Dance Company
July 19th - Marcus Santos' Grooversity drummers
July 26th -Estrellas Baton Twirlers
August 16th - Children's Festival from 10-2
August Movies on the Big Screen at Dusk (about 8PM)
August 9th - Latino Movie Night!
August 16th -Mayor Menino's Movie Night: Toy Story 3
I'm definitely going to try and at least check out Zili Misik on July 26th because those women are amazing. Hope to see you in the park!
