"West Side Story in Concert" goes up at the Thunder Bay Theatre in Alpena from July 14-16.

School is letting out, and it's time to plan your Michigan summer getaways. No matter where in the state your vacation takes you, there’s probably a theater production not too far away.

As part of our ongoing series Theater Talk, David Kiley of Encore Michigan detailed upcoming shows at Thunder Bay Theater, Barn Theater, Mason Street Warehouse Theater, as well as this year’s Broadway shows at the Fisher Theater in Detroit.

Fans of the Broadway hit Hamilton will have to travel outside the state if they want to see it this summer. But if you can hold out a little longer, the musical is scheduled to make it to Detroit in early 2019, according to Alan Lichtenstein at the Fisher Theater. 

Listen above for the whole list and a preview of the shows.

Support for arts and culture coverage comes in part from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
