The Central Wisconsin Area Community Theater (cwACT) 2011-2012 season is about to get under way.
They open in October with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Jeffrey Lane, the 2005 musical adaptation of the 1988 film of the same name, which, unofficially, is in turn based on the 1964 David Niven film, Bedtime Story. Next up, in February, will be the classic romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story, written in 1939 by Philip Barry specifically for Katharine Hepburn and adapted by Barry into the 1940 film of the same name, again starring Ms. Hepburn.
