The experiment will run from Wednesday until Sunday, September 21-25, 2011, with shows at 6:30pm and 8:30pm from Wednesday through Saturday and at 2:00pm on Sunday. The experiment is being conducted in the UWMC Center for Civic Engagement Black Box Theatre. To get to the Black Box, go in the main doors on S. 7th Avenue, go straight ahead, past all the Main Stage entrances, and turn right.
You read that last paragraph, and all the words, individually, were fairly understandable; but they didn’t seem to say anything cohesive, right? There was some light, and a baby, and some neo-something or others, and an experiment, and a box, and the box might’ve been black, and blah, blah, blah…Wanna go ride bikes?

The University of Wisconsin – Marathon County Theatre Department is seeking accommodations for their artist in residence from September 8, 2011, until September 22, 2011. For two weeks, you could play host to one of the most prolific playwrights on your block.
As you may recall, UWMC will open its 2011-2012 theater season with The Return of the Neo-Futurists and Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind. Chicago’s theater troupe The Neo-Furturists are the brainchild of writer, director, and performer Greg Allen. Their signature show, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (30 plays in 60 minutes), has been in continuous production since December 2, 1988. For perspective, that was the year you voted for Mike Dukakis. Or not. Allen is also the founder of the New York Neo-Futurists, whose production of Too Much Light… has been running since 2004.
Allen is also going to be UWMCs artist in residence for two weeks in September. He’s coming to town to assist with the UWMC interpretation of Too Much Light… and will be needing a place to crash when he’s not at the theater working with the production. That probably won’t amount to a lot of time, but even great artists appreciate a place to sleep and shower.
If you have some extra room and think it might be cool to have a playwright hanging out for a few nights in the fall, please contact Professor Sarah Rudolph at the University of Wisconsin – Marathon County Theatre Department via phone at 715-261-6290 or email at email@example.com
The University of Wisconsin – Marathon County Theatre Department’s 2011-2012 season has a little bit of everything. A little bit of Monica in my life, a little bit of Erica by my side, a little bit of….
Sorry. That won’t happen again.
Things open in September with The Return of the NEOFUTURISTS and TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKES THE BABY GO BLIND, a sort of theatrical free for all made up of short vignettes that got it’s start here this past fall. The new version will feature scripts written by UWMC students, adding another dimension of intrigue to an already intriguing theatrical experience. In November, they’ll take on nineteenth century Norwegian morality with Henrik Ibsen’s 1882 play, Ghosts. Of course, there’s a reason we’re still staging 19th century shows, and there will certainly be much more on that here when the time comes. With Stop Kiss in February, the UWMC Theatre Department will take on twentieth century American morality with this 1998 show about sexual mores and the human condition.
The season will close in April with a world premier Read Full Article −>
