It’s always nice to see a fundraiser for a theatre company also serve as its own form of performance art. Fools For Tragedy’s debut show is a remarkably promising new Shakespeare mutation that will be raising funds for Soulstice Theatre. Looking forward to that one, particularly after taking a look at who is in the cast.

A little over a month before that show opens in late August, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre will be hosting a nice little environmental presentation in an outdoor bonfire atmosphere. In a residential garden on the edge of Whitnall Park in Hales Corners, Chamber will be presenting a “performance event” featuring historian Victoria Temple Boensho. The cast includes Jacque Troy as Eleanor of Aquitaine and Alecia Annacchino as Alais.

The show starts at 8pm.

The bonfire starts at 8:30.

Hors d'oeuvres and such will be presented at 7:30pm.

Here’s what the performance space looks like:

(Pretty cool)

 

 

 

The fundraiser will go to help the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, which appears to have a really tight 2011-2012 season coming-up. Tickers are $35 per person. Interested parties should RSVP with Amy Geyser at 414-276-8842 x117

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
