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.
Mr. Jon and Friends make family music that is all about fun, movement, and laughter!
Singer/Songwriter Jon Lewis spent a decade playing shows in coffee houses, recording CD’s, and having opportunities like being on a T.V. show, being a finalist in a national song writing competition, and enjoying international radio play from Belize to Ireland.
In 2008 Jon and his wife Carrie started a family, and the following year Jon started working with kids at the downtown library in Frederick MD. These two events started something new for Jon – songwriting for children and performing for them regularly. Jon & Carrie went on to record their first album for kids and their families called “Mr. Jon & Friends” at Grammy Award winning studio Acacia Recording & Production. After it’s release, their CD quickly became a top seller on CDbaby.com, and also won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award.
Now Mr. Jon plays over 200 shows a year for kids, sharing the stage with bands like The Pop Ups and The Imagination Movers. Mr. Jon’s new album “Rock & Rhyme” is also a top seller on CDbaby.com, and has just won a Parents’ Choice Award as well.
