Correction: When this post was originally published, the show times for Friday and Saturday evening were incorrectly listed as 7:30 pm. The correct show time for both evenings is 7:00 pm.
Little consolation, to be sure, but the author drove out to Edgar on Friday evening, only to arrive 15 minutes after curtain rather than 15 minutes before, as planned. Heavy sigh. Return trip planned for Sunday…

It’s a new school year, and the drama departments at Wausau West, Wausau East, Edgar, and DC Everest are all gearing up for their fall shows. Through a variety of styles and time frames, all four are performing comedies. Conveniently, if you want to catch them all, the productions are on consecutive weekends.
The East End Players hit the stage first, and they’re taking us back to the roots of comedy with William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, a lovely counter-point to UWMC’s recent production of Shakespeare’s tragic Romeo and Juliet. The following weekend, Edgar Theatre Company (ETC) jumps into the 1940s with their production of Mary Chase’s classic, Harvey, the first production to be staged in Edgar High School’s brand spanking new auditorium.
Hitting the fast forward button again, Wausau West brings us the 2005 nouveau classic, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a musical comedy performed in one act. Finally, DC Everest Drama goes forward and backward in time with a 2006 show that centers around a fictional 1928 Jazz Age musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, leveraging a variation on the show-within-a-show device that worked so nicely in Wausau East’s spring production of Kiss Me Kate.

The Wizard of Oz is a musical based on the 1939 film, which is now essentially etched, frame by frame, into the genetic code of all higher forms of life. This is the ACTUAL story of the Wizard of Oz from L. Frank Baum; not that second rate, derivative, back-story thing with the weak second act that’s been making it’s wicked rounds in theaters. This is legit.
The real story here, though, isn’t the show. The real story here is Read Full Article −>
