Iroquois Amphitheater's Summer Season Underway

The last weekend in May saw the opening of Iroquois Amphitheater's summer season with a performance of "Songs of the Sixties" by the Louisville Chorus.

June 16-19 and 23-26 Music Theatre Louisville returns to present "1776," the first of its three musicals. "Cinderella" moves in July 14-17 and 21-24, with "Anything Goes" scheduled for Aug. 11-14 and 18-21.

Rounding out the month of June are Ballet Espanol (June 4-5) and an Evening of Magic and Illusion on June 10.

The Strictly Bluegrass Festival, formerly held in Central Park, moves to the Amphitheater this year for a two-day run, Sept. 9-10, and will feature the "Father of Bluegrass Music," Kentucky's Bill Monroe.

Grants from Brown-Forman Corp., the Greater Louisville Fund for the Arts and the Kentucky Arts Council help make the season possible.
