OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS

OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS

September 7th, 2017 - September 24th, 2017

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his beloved (but annoying) grandparents every Sunday for dinner. When he announces that he’s been offered a dream job that will take him away, the news doesn’t sit so well. How could he betray his family’s love to move to Seattle, for a job? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best to stop him, and that includes inviting to dinner the lovely–and single–Caitlin O’Hare.

Eccentric Manhattan socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once declared, “people may say I can’t sing, but no one ever said I didn’t sing.” And, oh, did she sing – often and loudly, but rarely on key. Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Her story was recently told in an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep. Time Out calls Souvenir “a memorable illustration of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold.” Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.

Artifacts

September 16th, 2017

Discover  the grit and character of Milwaukee in the living dioramas of  Artifacts. Nestled among the concrete and corrugated steel of the Riverwest Creative District, the Goat Palace will be transformed into a wild space of dance and theater by Artistic Director Debra Loewen and theatrical collaborator Tony Horne. From an abandoned car to the loading dock, from five distinct settings in warehouse bays to a sparking fire pit, site-based vignettes and installations unfold for a memorable experience. Sound artist C. Olivia Valenza mixes clarinet, whirring fans, ambient noise and chiming goat bells for a touch of whimsy.

 

Advance ticket purchase recommended. General $22, Student/Senior $18
