Must-See Summer Performances at the Lakeville Area Arts Center

For a fun and memorable summer, art, creativity, and spontaneity should be in abundance! Here are three upcoming theater performances that you must see this summer at the Lakeville Area Arts Center.
Snow White*
Presented by: Prairie Fire Children's Theatre
Camp dates: July 11-16
Performance dates: July 15-16
Why you should see it: A beloved fairy tale, the story of Snow White will be reimagined with the talented and creative minds at the Prairie Fire Children’s Theater. This theater classic depicts the story of Princess Snow White, a young girl cast away by a wicked and devious step-mother. Finding friendship with seven hard-working dwarves and love with a charming and handsome prince, Snow White must make her way home.
Register here.
Arsenic & Lace
Presented by: Expressions Community Theater
When: August 5-7 at 7:30 p.m., August 11-14 at 2 p.m.
Why you should see it: This classic black comedy is centered on Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must face his two homicidal spinster aunts, an older brother who believes he is a Teddy Roosevelt-reincarnate, and another murderous, plastic-surgery loving brother who has disfigured his own face to hide past crimes. Mortimer Brewster also has to decide if he wants to marry the woman of his dreams or move on to a life of bachelorhood. It’s hilarious, it’s unconventional, and it’s a must-see show.

Jack & the Beanstalk*
Presented by: Prairie Fire Children's Theatre
Camp dates: August 15-20
Performance dates: August 19 & 20
Why you should see it: “Fee-fi-fo-fum!” And thus begins the most exciting tale of a giant who lives in a castle in the sky, a towering bean plant, magic beans, and a boy named Jack. This classic English fairy tale will transport you back to an enchanting, charming, and simpler time.
