The Little Sisters of Hoboken are in dire need of emergency funds after a culinary disaster nearly wipes out the convent. The nuns pull out all the stops in a fundraising variety show featuring tap dancing, habit humor, an audience quiz and a special appearance by convent cook, Sister Julia, Child of God. The clever story has an unabashed desire to make you laugh. With songs and comic interludes paced at break-neck speed, it’s a must see musical adventure!

From the much-loved playwright of The Foreigner comes a new production of one of the funniest plays ever written. When Willum has an unexpected party guest, who turns into an unwanted houseguest, he executes an elaborate plan to rid himself of the wacky nuisance. Aided by a rag-tag team that includes friends, a would-be lover and an oblivious boss, creative acts of desperation quickly dissolve into utter mayhem. The twists and turns of this madcap comedy lead to an ending that leaves you feeling happily hoodwinked!

Present Music

Milwaukee’s holiday season truly begins with Thanksgiving and Present Music’s annual musical celebration!

November 17th at the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist, come experience something new as Present Music’s Co-Artistic Directors David Bloom and Eric Segnitz continue the over twenty year long tradition of celebrating friendship and togetherness through a concert of new music.

This year, the program will continue several longtime traditions such as the massive community friendship song led by The Bucks Native American Singing & Drumming Group, angelic choral works reverberating throughout the immense Cathedral, and a plethora of community members joining in for the performance. The ensemble will perform music by well-known women composers such as Reena Esmail, Caroline Shaw, Shelley Washington, Cass Elliot (of the Mammas and the Papas), and special local young composer Lauren Barta, an alumna of Present Music’s Creation Project student composition partnership with MPS’ Ronald Reagan High School.
Present Music ensemble is joined this Thanksgiving by Hearing Voices Ensemble, the Bucks Native American Singing & Drumming Group, Ronald Reagan High School Choir, the Ukuladies, members of the Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra, and more!
