The Muskoka Seven: Things to Do from August 8 to 14, 2011

Will the wolves be howling this week at Algonquin Park? (photo by White Wolf Photography)

1. Learn about the ecology of wolves at Algonquin Park’s “Wolf Howl.” Attend a slide talk about a wolf’s life history then travel to a designated location where wild wolves may answer to imitations by the park staff. (Weather permitting.)

2. Head out to Annie Williams Park in Breacebridge for Prism Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. The classic comedy is suitable for all ages and opens on August 9.

3. Looking for a laugh? Check out the Cottage Country Comedy Festival featuring a full schedule of comedians performing on August 12 and 13. The line-up includes Mike Wilmot, Gilson Lubin, Kathleen McGee, and many more!

4. Like the Osmonds and the Partridges, the Dodingtons are a multi-generational singing family. The Power and Glory of Music: The Dodingtons in Concert takes place on August 13, with a repertoire of classical songs to current Broadway hits.

5. Juno-winning singer-songwriter Jimmy Rankin performs at the Algonquin Theatre on August 13. The East Coast musician is slated to perform his timeless hits as well as songs from his new album “Here In My Heart.”

6. Don’t miss the last Music on the Barge show of the summer, featuring music from the The Good Brothers, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary in the music business.

7. There’s still lots of summer left to enjoy on the golf course. May we suggest a round at The Ridge at Manitou?
