As it was previously announced to the public, because of the Random Lake School District’s major reconstruction project, Lakeshore Productions, Inc, has postponed its summer 2024 musical, Fiddler on the Roof. As a way to stay active and in front of the community, some LPI alumni will be performing at Music in the Park during the bands’ set breaks.

On July 4th , during Tommy Odetto’s break, Roy Schwab will be performing.
