Once we as audience members get past the initial shock and titillation of Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play), we see that the messages from its 19th-century setting remain timeless in 2012—the pursuit of love at its most intimate...

Elm Grove Theatre offers classes for kids from 2 – 18 years of age

By Russ Bickerstaff
As the father of a talented four month old girl, I can’t wait to introduce her to the stage. The First Stage Children’s Theatre is a great opportunity to give kids a chance to develop an understanding of performance firsthand, but Sunset Playhouse also offers classes . . . some for kids as young as 2 years old . . . so if the program is still running in 2013, my daughter and I might find our...

Touring Production of Annie comes December 18 - 19

The Day AFTER Tomorrow, the touring Broadway production of Annie comes to UW-Whitewater’s Young Auditorium. The comic strip, which still runs in a few paper, was born in the 1920’s. In the ‘20’s the strip was an innocent, little bit of humor about a little pupil-less red-haired girl who had been adopted from a boarding house by a wealthy bald-headed gentleman. By the ‘30’s, the strip ...
