So, you've probably seen a Shakespeare-in-the-park play at least once in your life. Music in a park is also fairly common, as are kid-friendly puppet shows, school marching bands, and even the occasional poetry reading. But how about comedy? Stevie Ray's Comedy Troupe has been bringing laughs to the great outdoors since 1992. Come a little early and take a walk through the nearby Peace Garden, bring a blanket or a lawn chair, or a picnic basket if you're into dinner theater, and prepare to bust a gut laughing at this family-friendly show. And even if someone's joke is a stinker, at least the park will smell like roses. For more info call 612.825.1832.
Sundays, 5 p.m. Starts: June 7. Continues through Aug. 30, 2009
