SummerStage of Delafield

Just a short drive from Waukesha Pewaukee is the Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest and a very unique outdoor theatrical venue: Summerstage of Delafield.

The entertainment season at Summerstage of Delafield begins in July. In 2021 they will be featuring two plays:

July 15-17, 21-24 & 28-31 • The Nerd •  7:30 pm

About the show: Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment, but his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick has no social sense, little intelligence, and less tact. His continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another.

August 19-21, 25-28 & Sept. 1-4 • Crimes of the Heart •  7:30 pm

About the show: In Hazlehurst, MI, the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest, is thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, is back home after a failed singing career; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband. The sisters escape the past to seize the future, on a journey that’s touching and hilarious along the way.



Enjoy “dinner and a show” in Lapham Peak’s unique outdoor setting, where picnicking and beverages are welcome and insect repellent is recommended!

The organizers of SummerStage encourage visitors to bring blankets and lawn chairs. A limited number of chairs are available for rent, and if you want to minimize what you have to carry, there is a concession stand.

You will need to pay the $5 per vehicle entrance fee to get into the Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest (unless you already have a Wisconsin State Park pass). Summerstage is a 300-yard walk from the parking lot to stage area.
