O Romeo, Romeo

Wherefore art thou Romeo

In Montgomery Parks of course


Throughout the Summer season, Montgomery Parks is hosting Parks Playhouse — a series of free, live performances to celebrate the artistry of great local bands, troupes, and groups.

The summer lineup includes themed comedy shows like a PRIDE stand-up and an all-Spanish language stand-up, classic Shakespearean and vaudeville theater, and many live bands. Performances will be rolling throughout the summer at different park locations, so be sure to explore the calendar below for a complete lineup and check back in the coming weeks for more information about each event.

Audience members are encouraged to bring their own blankets and chairs for seating. Stop by a local Montgomery County restaurant on the way and pick up some yummy snacks to make it a picnic. Food and drink will be provided at a limited number of events.

Clear your schedule in August for the Parks Playhouse finale week at the Cabin John Amphitheater. There will be a free performance each night starting on Tuesday, August 15, and ending on Friday, August 18. Performance content will vary from kids’ music to adult comedy to family-friendly concerts, so plan your evening agendas accordingly.

For little art lovers, Montgomery Parks is also hosting Parks Playhouse Junior — live performances geared to kids ages two through twelve. These events will consist of puppets, ventriloquists, music lessons, sing-a-longs, and more. Be sure to check out that performance lineup by exploring the Parks Playhouse Junior page.
