Echoes of Radio WHT this summer and two one-night-only performances next year

By Russ Bickerstaff
    Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre continues to produce some really fun retro-comedy programs. Actors play actors playing characters in the golden age of radio. It's fun stuff.

Vampires, Zombie Puppets, Murder and the Ghost of Hamlet's Father

By Russ Bickerstaff
Halloween is probably the most theatrical of the holidays. More costumes are bought this time of year than any other. People go off to parties in character.
