LAKESIDE — Lakeside Chautauqua’s Hoover Auditorium, one of the cultural hot spots on Lake Erie, hosts a variety of musicians, comedians, illusionists, dancers and bands nightly.

Daily fun and family entertainment await guests of all ages.

This week’s entertainment includes:

Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood “Scared Scriptless”

These two stars of the original Emmy-nominated TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” will entertain and provide interactive improvisation in a performance titled “Scared Scriptless.”

Their amusing, PG-rated family show includes variations on many of the games showcased on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” including “Sound FX” and “One Word Expert.” Mochrie and Sherwood remind audiences at the beginning of each show that the scenes that make up the act are entirely unscripted.

Family Night in the Park: Upriver Music

Upriver Music plays a mixture of traditional and original folk music in the Celtic and Appalachian traditions. Musicians Dan Moorefield and Teresa Morrison blend their vibrant sound with stories and legends to deepen the audience’s understanding of these rich musical heritages.
