Come join us for some Shakespeare in the Park(ing Lot)!

Saturday June 5 & Sunday June 6

The Lake Harriet Players’ Spring Project, Lost and Found, is a tribute to some of Shakespeare’s best scenes and a testament to life’s complexity, its darkness and its light. After our collective year of wandering, we hope you will find some inspiration from our family-friendly production.

Show location:                Parking lot of Lake Harriet United Methodist Church

                                        4901 Chowen Ave S, Minneapolis 55410

 

Show times:                     Saturday, June 5 at 7pm and Sunday, June 6 at 3pm

Special instructions:     Please bring your own chair or blanket for the show! Also, please park on streets near the church, and not in the church parking lot (that’s our stage and seating area!). Bathrooms will be available for use inside the church (please don a mask if you need to enter the church). 

As you might expect, we will be carefully practicing some COVID rules at our shows. If the weather is good, we’ll be outside, and masks will not be required. If it rains, we will be inside the church, and masks will be required for all audience members. Please note that we will have very limited audience numbers inside the church if we have to bring our show indoors.

Sadly, refreshments will not be available, and there will be no flower sales (booo). However, we will be accepting donations for the Joyce Food Shelf (yay)! We have included a wish list of items below:

-Toilet paper

-Diapers

-Baby wipes

-Tooth brushes and toothpaste

-Dish soap

-Laundry soap

-Monetary donations or Amazon wishlist items (more instructions will be available at the show)

 

And of course, if you are so moved, we always accept online donations (not required for admission!) for the Lake Harriet Players at:

It has been quite a year. Let’s have some fun together!  We hope to see you at our show.

 
 
 
 
 

Once a year in the spring our stage come to life with an intergenerational, dynamic musical. This group offers acting, creative and spiritual growth opportunities to folks of all ages. We welcome those who have a background in acting, whether it’s the high school one-act-play or a lifelong profession, and for those who have no acting background – we open our doors. This is a space to make friends across generations, support and learn from each other and create a musical experience that entertains, provokes thought and brings people together. Lake Harriet Players started in 2001 with their first production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Over the years, Lake Harriet Players has entertained audiences with many family-friendly shows including Fiddler on the Roof, The Music Man, Jesus Christ Superstar, Hello Dolly, Wizard of Oz, Godspell, A Year with Frog & Toad, Annie, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (for their 10th anniversary), Seussical, Once Upon a Mattress and Godspell.
