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.

And sometimes, a healthy arts environment just plain improves our quality of life in ways that you can’t put a dollar amount on. The 2011 graduating class of Wausau East High School has graciously provided a case in point.

Wausau East High School’s East End Players will be performing the Cole Porter classic, Kiss Me, Kate at the Wausau East High School Theater on April 15-17, 2011. Shows will be at 7:00pm on Friday and Saturday evenings and at 1:00pm on Sunday afternoon. Tickets are $8.00 for adults, $7.00 for students and seniors, and will be available at the door.
Kiss Me, Kate is classic musical theater on a number of levels. In 1947, Cole Porter’s career had been suffering. The music he was writing for Hollywood films was profitable, but the shows he was writing for Broadway were not well received by audiences or critics. Following a series of lukewarm shows, Read Full Article −>
