The performances and activities include Saturdays in the Park at the Acacia Park bandshell; FAC Theatre School summer camp on the outdoor stage; “She Loves Me,” a musical by the FAC Youth Repertory Ensemble, July 29-August 1 on the outdoor stage; “Working,” is a musical based on Studs Terkel’s book of interviews with American workers, Aug. 24-September 5 on the outdoor stage; and “Art & Acting in the Forest,” Bemis School of Art camps for kids at La Foret Conference. Also Retreat Center in the Black Forest.
In fact, approximately 32 feet wide and 20 feet deep stage in the sculptural garden outside the museum at Dale Street and Cascade Avenue is the outdoor stage. Moreover, it will be up throughout the summer. Then, it will go into the fall, before the theater returns to the indoor FAC stage in the fall.
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Depending on the event, patrons will either sit on the grass or in space-out seats.
“To gather safely outdoors, people will be looking for the opportunity. In fact, it’s a chance for us to return to the theater’s roots and origins as outdoors and for the public,” says FAC Director Idris Goodwin. “Moreover, we want a robust, consistent regular series of events from June to the top of October.
