This week, the Downtown Country cast began rehearsals for the “Stars In Summer Series”, which runs June 14 through August 4.

We have pulled together a phenomenal cast for Downtown Country this season,” said Kelli Doolen-Farmer, Downtown Country director. “With returning favorites and new additions to our line-up, this cast will wow audiences with powerhouse vocals and high-energy music.
