Lake Superior Theatre presents: Monty Python's Spamalot

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
It is 932 A.D. in England, and King Arthur, joined by his servant Patsy, is “riding” through the land trying to find men to join his Round Table. Arthur is frustrated by several failed recruitment attempts, including one with an awfully resilient Black Knight, but his luck might not stay bad for long. In a near village, Sir Robin the NotQuite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot and Sir Lancelot the Brave decide to enlist in the army, because unlike some other villagers, they are not yet dead (Monk’s Chant/He’s Not Yet Dead). Meanwhile, Arthur continues to look for able-bodied men, and soon finds Dennis Galahad and his mother, both of whom are politically active peasants that doubt Arthur is really a king.

Miner's Revenge Mountain Bike Race

Annual Events
Location: Adventure Mine, Greenland
An incredible 7000 years ago the first humans arrived in the Keweenaw to extract pure copper from the earth, hammering and chiseling at the rock to break the metal free from its grasp. As time evolved the methods for removing the copper became more advanced, eventually leading to drilling holes and blasting the copper out with TNT. Men worked 10 hour shifts 6 days a week carving the metal from the mountain and in 1920 after 70 years of underground mining they abandoned the remaining copper and left the tunnels vacant of their toils. The Miners Revenge takes you deep into the mountain and through the pits of ancient miners who spent their lives chasing the red metal. Some say the men who died still live in the mine protecting their claim, we can’t say that’s true but we can say that anything can happen when you are 300 feet below the surface and there’s nobody to hear you scream. Miners Revenge, they were chasing a dream of riches in the form of silver and copper, you are being chased, and we have just one question, who's afraid of the dark?

Lake Superior Theatre presents: Monty Python's Spamalot

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
It is 932 A.D. in England, and King Arthur, joined by his servant Patsy, is “riding” through the land trying to find men to join his Round Table. Arthur is frustrated by several failed recruitment attempts, including one with an awfully resilient Black Knight, but his luck might not stay bad for long. In a near village, Sir Robin the NotQuite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot and Sir Lancelot the Brave decide to enlist in the army, because unlike some other villagers, they are not yet dead (Monk’s Chant/He’s Not Yet Dead). Meanwhile, Arthur continues to look for able-bodied men, and soon finds Dennis Galahad and his mother, both of whom are politically active peasants that doubt Arthur is really a king.

90th Annual Bell's Beer Bayview to Mackinac Race

Annual Events
Location: Mackinac Island

Since the first Mackinac Race in 1925, Bayview Yacht Club has hosted this spectacular annual fresh water event which has attracted intrepid sailors from around the globe. The first fleet of only nine boats was battered by strong winds and only three finished. Today, Bayview hosts more than two hundred fifty racing yachts for the annual trek from Port Huron to Mackinac Island. Whether sailing the traditional shore course or the longer Cove Island or South Hampton course, it is an exciting and challenging adventure and sailors must face every conceivable type of challenge mother nature can present. From big waves and high wind to black flies and intolerable heat, the sailors press on to finish yet another Mackinac Race.

Lake Superior Theatre presents: Quilters (A Musical)

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
An actress once commented that playing one of the pioneer women in Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek's musical drama "Quilters" is far more difficult than playing, say, one of Shakespeare's court women. With Shakespeare, she explained, at least there's a theatrical tradition to fall back on. What do you have with pioneer women, except mostly bad movie stereotypes? With the retreat of America's wilderness and folk traditions,the struggles and dreams of the hardy women who went West now seem at least as remote as Henry IV's court. Willing "Quilters" to life on stage comes down to pure imagination.

Lake Superior Theatre presents: Quilters (A Musical)

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
An actress once commented that playing one of the pioneer women in Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek's musical drama "Quilters" is far more difficult than playing, say, one of Shakespeare's court women. With Shakespeare, she explained, at least there's a theatrical tradition to fall back on. What do you have with pioneer women, except mostly bad movie stereotypes? With the retreat of America's wilderness and folk traditions,the struggles and dreams of the hardy women who went West now seem at least as remote as Henry IV's court. Willing "Quilters" to life on stage comes down to pure imagination.
