WILLIAMS BAY — The historic Belfry Music Theatre, Wisconsin's oldest summer stock theater that began in 1932, has announced two fundraising concerts Aug. 28 and 29.  

Will Kruger is nationally known for his “Tribute to John Denver” show and his work as a songwriter for films, including “God, Where Are You?,” which will be released later this year by Lazarus Films. Kruger and his band will present a family friendly evening of Denver's music along with that of Gordon Lightfoot, Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor and Paul Simon at 7 p.m. Aug. 28.   

At 7 p.m. Aug. 29, Lisa Weyerhaeuser, of Gurnee, will host a praise and worship concert at the Belfry. Weyerhaeuser is teaching at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, as an adjunct professor in the psychology department. She also is part of a community dedicated to helping other artists on their own musical pilgrimages through called StrongTree Productions. Over the years, she has enjoyed playing music alongside amazing artists and musicians.  

The Belfry Music Theatre was home for summer stock theatre from the 1930s into the 1990s. Alumni include Paul Newman, Harrison Ford, Gary Berghoff and Ron Livingston. The theater has been purchased by Transformative Arts Inc. a nonprofit organization, and has begun raising funds for restoration of the theater. Those attending these concerts will have an opportunity to learn about membership benefits and volunteering. Tickets are available online at BelfryMusicTheatre.com.

The Belfry is located on Wisconsin Highway 67 about one mile north of the of Williams Bay, and just south of Wisconsin Highway 50, across from Mercy Hospital.
