For the fourth season in a row, the Milwaukee-based Summit Players will visit Door County as a part of its 17-stop Wisconsin State Park tour. At each stop, the seven-member troupe will engage with the audience in a 45-minute workshop to get people familiar with the artistic stylings of William Shakespeare before performing “The Twelfth Night.” The Summit Players’ A.J. Magoon says the idea of taking actors to tour the state parks actually started with a visit by executive director Hannah Klapperich-Mueller to Potawatomi State Park with her family.
The performances are free with state park admission. The Summit Players make their Door County stop on August 5 at Whitefish Dunes State Park. The workshop begins at 1 p.m. with the performance starting at 2:30 p.m.
