For local Bard enthusiasts, summertime means a full slate of Shakespeare in parks throughout Wisconsin, thanks to the Summit Players. The Milwaukee-based troupe has been performing Shakespearian plays at an ever-growing roster of Wisconsin State Parks for four seasons.
Lake Effect's Mitch Teich goes 'on set' at Havenwoods State Forest to talk with Summit Players Executive Director Hannah Klapperich-Mueller and Havenwoods conservation biologist Beth Mittermaier.
"It's fun to have friends and family from Milwaukee ... [be] immersed in this natural setting while we're doing our performance," said Klapperich-Mueller. "It just has a magical feeling."
The Summit Players is performing the Twelfth Night through Aug. 12.
