To Entertain, Educate, and Elevate!
The mission of SummerStage is to provide unique ways to present performing and visual arts experiences, arts educational experiences as well as unique community outreach programs. This will be accomplished by using multiple venues throughout the calendar year.
The Summerstage Theater venue is an outdoor facility to be used for cultural, educational, and community outreach purposes. The current setup includes a stage in a natural amphitheater setting just off one of the hiking trails in Lapham Peak State Park which is located in Delafield, Wisconsin.
