Raptors up close with REGI of Antigo

Raptors Up Close with REGI   Saturday June 4, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Have you ever met an owl face to face? What about a hawk? A falcon? Meet some of Wisconsin’s common, but rarely encountered birds.  On Saturday night, June 4th at 6:00 pm, we will again be hosting the Raptor Education Group of Antigo, a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for injured or orphaned native bird species, along with public education on wildlife issues.  Discover what a raptor is, hear their stories and learn what you can do to ensure they remain a significant part of the ecosystem. All ages.  raptoreducationgroup.org

Bill Jamerson with an old buddy

Daylight in the Swamp with Bill Jamerson     Saturday, July 9 at 6:00 pm

Upper Peninsula based singer and storyteller Bill Jamerson will return to the Rib Mountain Amphitheater to present a popular musical program about Wisconsin lumberjack history.  With guitar in hand, Jamerson sings traditional lumberjack songs, tells stories and tall tales about life in the lumber camps.  This program has a “laugh a minute” and appeals to anyone who has an appreciation for the woods, whether as a hunter, camper or simply as a hiker.   billjamerson.com

Shakespeare in the Park     Saturday, August 13 at 7:00 pm

Join the Summit Players of Marquette University for a stripped-down, six actor production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” or “As You Like It” to be performed for FREE at Rib Mountain State Park. This theater troupe created a new cutting of the script to make a tight, one hour and fifteen minute show of mayhem, character switches and hilarity. The production is ‘Shakespeare out of a trunk,’ with minimal set, costumes, props and a focus on actors, as per the style of Shakespeare’s time. Performed at the Rib Mountain State Park Amphitheater.   summitplayerstheatre.com

“Playing with Shakespeare: Get Outside with Will” Theatre Workshop     Saturday, August 13 at 5:30 pm (prior to performance)

Shakespeare can be fun for the whole family!

Think Shakespeare is old and boring? Think again! Join the Summit Players for 45 minutes of fun and brain acrobatics! Play some games, work with some text and explore the natural world. Learn how Shakespeare used nature in his plays and why his characters talk the way they do. Shed any iambic penta-jitters, then join us for the show! Meet at the Park Amphitheater. Ages 8 and up.   summitplayerstheatre.com

All programs are free of charge – daily or annual park admission sticker required. Bench seating is provided for all programs but patrons are invited to bring their own comfortable seating.  For information on day of show call the park office at 715-842-2522
