Daniel Perez, the technical director and scenic designer, guided a set of steps onto a second level as he helped construct the stage for Summerfest in the Arboretum on Alumni Dr. in Lexington, Ky., Tuesday, June 11, 2013. This year, the Kentucky Conservatory Theatre Summerfest series will present two productions- Peter Pan will be presented July 5 - 7 and July 10 - 14, and A Chorus Line will be presented July 24 - 28 and July 31 - August 4 in the outdoor setting.  It began about twenty-eight years ago as The Lexington Shakespeare Festival, and in 2007, under a new Board of Directors and staff, became Summerfest. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
