The Summer Arts season is upon us.
Summer Arts you say? Well, yes. The Arts in the county don’t just shut down in May. We have many options to choose from between July and October. Plays, concerts, exhibits and so much more to experience. Check out a few opportunities here.
Palm Beach Dramaworks (West Palm Beach)
Palm Beach Dramaworks has a “Sounds Of Summer” series with three concerts. From August 2nd to 4th come see Jill and Rich In Concert. Get here to see the Morning Lounge duo from Legends Radio 100.3 as well as some surprise guests pay tribute in song and word from the Great American Songbook artists including a centennial celebration of Nat King Cole. For the family join them for Stages Productions Presents “The Ugly Duckling”. From July 13 until 14th see the classic story told about being different but beautiful all along. Perfect for small children. And starting on October 11th until November 3rd, they present the Tennessee Williams classic A Streetcar Named Desire. The dramatic tale of a fragile Southern bell (Blanche DuBois) and her ill-mannered rough blue-collar brother-in-law (Stanley Kowalski) cooped up in a dingy New York apartment filled with tension.
Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens (Delray Beach)
Morikami Museum has a few events to occupy your season. Once a month (check their calendar) they have a Sushi and Stroll Summer Walk, where they welcome guests to take part in a rare opportunity to stroll the gardens at sunset. Enjoy performances by South Florida’s original taiko drummers, Fushu Daiko while sipping on sake and eating from various food trucks. On October 19th, visit Morikami to enjoy the Lantern Festival: In The Spirit of Obon. This festival features Japanese folk-dancing, drumming, street fair and the iconic floating lantern ceremony. Truly a sight to behold! Check out their calendar for family activities and monthly lectures as well.
Coral Sky Amphitheatre (West Palm Beach)
Coral Sky Amphitheatre is an open-air venue located at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. This season you can expect to see and hear many varied concerts.
