(Updated at 10:55 a.m.) Two years after being “mothballed” by Arlington County, and less than two months after being saved by the approval of $100,000 worth of repairs, the Lubber Run Amphitheater is nearly ready to reopen.

Amphitheater supporters just released a schedule of performances for the upcoming summer season. The season will kick off on Friday, July 29, with a performance by Blues/R&B singer/songwriter Mary Ann Redmond. Organizers are planning on serving cake to attendees to celebrate the new season — the first since 2009.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without a community that appreciates the unique venue for family entertainment the Lubber Run amphitheater has offered for many years and a caring and responsive County government,” Lubber Run Amphitheater Foundation President Esther Bowring said in a statement. “We are looking forward to the amphitheater’s reopening and to working with Arlington County and the community to bring great entertainment to the Lubber Run stage for summers to come.”

All shows will begin at 8:00 p.m. The complete performance schedule includes:

      I’ve seen Origem and the Grandsons and enjoyed both. Origem plays Brazilian jazz and the Grandsons old time rock and roll.

      Margot MacDonald was featured on this site several months ago. The clip ARLnow posted was really cool.

    All of the Lubber Run performances start at 8pm. ArlingtonArts.org has additional details on all of the performers.

    While Fast and the Furious and Inception are entertaining, the number of F-bombs makes them rather unsuitable for kids. I’m not saying the kids haven’t heard or said those words, but they wouldn’t be shown even in high school so why advertise them to teens?

      Both movies are rated PG-13. Doubt there are that many f-bombs in either.
