Yay for stuff to do outdoors and double yay for stuff to do outdoors that's free.  Starting tomorrow is the Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park series.  

The Franklin Park Coalition (FPC) partners with the National Center of Afro-American Artists (NCAAA) and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department's ParkARTS Program to present a free performing arts series named for the founder and director of the Elma Lewis School of Fine Arts.

This year, they present 11 Tuesday shows. The 11 a.m. morning shows run about one hour, and are geared toward children, families and summer camps. Evening shows, hosted by Naheem, run from 6 to 8:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. These FREE, outdoor performances take place at Valley Gates, next to The Playstead, the big field in Franklin Park between White Stadium and the rear entrance of the Zoo, not far from where the original Playhouse stood. Performances take place weather permitting.
