From clowns and magicians, to Emmy-awarding winning musicians and puppeteers, the Summerfest Family Theatre has brought high-quality entertainment to Frederick youngsters for over sixteen years!
From a modest beginning highlighting three programs throughout the summer, the series has grown to feature seven, full-length performances by some of the most sought-after children’s performers in the region. Kids’ sensations Laurie Berkner and Milkshake have both been part of the series, exposing more children than ever to the magic of the performing arts.
Lawyers by day. Kids’ musicians by weekend. That’s just how husband and wife duo Kelly Donohue and Jon Babu rock and roll.
The DC area parents have successful law careers and lead their very own kindie band, Here Comes Trouble - and after performing for years, the band released their very first kids’ album in 2015.
Here Comes Trouble performs irresistibly catchy songs that kids love…that parent’s end up loving, too! They are trained conservatory musicians that firmly believe that music shouldn’t be watered down for little ears. Here Comes Trouble’s songs are an eclectic mix of pop, jazz and hip-hop, sprinkled with traces of rockabilly, samba and punk. Influences include artists from many genres, including Medeski Martin & Wood, Jimi Hendrix, Shel Silverstein and practically anything from the 1980s. The group of five band members strives to bring a love of learning to children through high energy songs and dance.
Here Comes Trouble will put on a spectacular show for both parents and kids at the Baker Park Bandshell on August 5, 2021!
