Paul Simon, Tony Bennett, Bonnie Raitt and Kenny Rogers are among the artists who'll be taking the stage this summer at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.

Wolf Trap announced its summer schedule on Thursday.

Other performers who'll be visiting the venue outside Washington are Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, and pop acts from the '80s and '90s, including Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, Melissa Etheridge and the Goo Goo Dolls.

Programming also includes the American Ballet Theatre's performance of "Romeo and Juliet'' and radio personality Garrison Keillor, who'll make his final appearances at Wolf Trap as host of "A Prairie Home Companion.''

Steven Spielberg's movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark'' will screen for its 35th anniversary, with the National Symphony Orchestra performing John Williams' score.
