Our 2023 Summer Season at 
the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre

Don Quixote art.jpeg
This hilarious retelling of The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha begins in a Starbucks, where playwright Ben Eisenberg is feverishly working on his stage adaptation of Don Quixote, with rehearsals starting tomorrow. But there’s one big problem ~ he hasn’t written a single word. With help/pressure from his agent and possibly a near-lethal dose of caffeine and Xanax, Starbucks begins to transform, with patrons from the coffee shop becoming characters in the rapidly developing story. With 6 actors, multiple characters, windmills, horses, and demons, this fast-paced comedy is sure to keep the audience on the edge of their camp chairs.

Runs June 16th - July 15th.
Gates open at 6:30, show starts at 8pm

Newly retired friends, Marty and Fred, are handling retirement in different ways ~ Marty wants to explore the open road on a new Harley, and Fred is focused on his health by inventing a variety of new ailments. With a little "redirection" from their wives, the guys come up with a creative solution that helps them flex their muscles, work with sharp-pointy objects, and bring excitement back into their lives. Laugh your way through their journey of discovering just how fun, and funny, retirement can be.  

Runs August 4th - September 2nd
Gates open at 6:30, show starts at 8pm
