July 3: Theater – “The Taming of the Shrew”
Arnold Park, 17770 SW Blanton St., Aloha, OR 97007
Original Practice Shakespeare Festival employs the techniques of Shakespeare’s time – limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast-paced, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances.
July 10: Concert – 5 Guys Named Moe
Garden Home Park, 8020 SW 83rd Ave., Portland, OR 97223
The 11-member 5 Guys Named Moe is the ultimate dance and show band. Patterned after the big, visually creative bands of the 1960s, 5 Guys Named Moe uses horn sections and dynamic vocalists to create a full sound.
5 Guys Named Moe started out as a 5-piece in 1984 and took its name from Louis Jordan’s 1943 hit. Over the past 30 years, the band has grown into a slammin’ 11-piece show band that is as much fun to watch as it is to listen and dance to!
July 13: Theater – “Side By Side By Sondheim”
Evelyn M. Schiffler Memorial Park, 5475 SW Erickson Ave., Beaverton, OR 97005
The volunteer-run Beaverton Civic Theatre presents the musical revue featuring the songs of Broadway and film composer Stephen Sondheim.

Greenway Park, Access off SW Pearson Court and SW Parkview Loop, Beaverton, OR 97008
