Please come out and join us for this legendary, cultural arts series. Founded in 1966 the Elma Lewis Playhouse in Park has hosted magnificent musical acts such as Duke Ellington, to Billy Taylor Trio and others alike. This family oriented venue has events for all ages. In the morning dance events get everyone up and moving, and in the evening; concerts showcase talents from the local communities and neighborhoods.
Enjoy a night in the park with music that will make you get up and dance. Bring your lawn chairs, a picnic supper (or grab from the food trucks) and lots of friends! Join MC, Amanda Lady Emcee Merricks and Radio station 98.1fm, Boston Rhythm Riders leading line dancing at intermissions!

How to Find the Playhouse:
If traveling by car, drive down Circuit Drive (the main road through Franklin Park) and exit onto Pierpont Road towards the back entrance of the Zoo. Look for signs! The stage will be on your left and there is plenty of parking available. There is also a dirt parking lot located on Circuit Drive next to Pierpont road across from the golf course.
If traveling by public transportation, take the Orange Line to Green Street. Exit the station and turn right. Walk down Green Street, cross Washington Street, and walk up the hill into the park. Green Street turns into Glen Road. Follow Glen Road and stay on the paved pathway until you see the Playhouse stage. The #16 bus also travels through Franklin Park on Circuit Drive and stops directly across from the Playhouse stage.
