PENINSULA PLAYERS 78th SEASON
Peninsula Players Theatre, America's oldest professional resident summer theater and Door County's theatrical icon announces its 78th season, running June 11 through October 20, 2013.
"Saloon", by Terry Twyman - June 11 - June 30
Set in 1871, this comedy/drama visits the gritty Old West, where in the tough and wild land every horse could be ridderm, every girl loved and there was a silent honot among men. "Saloon" explores the life and camaraderie of cowboys during their time on the cattle trail.
"Once a Ponzi Time", by Joe Foust - July 3 - July 21
A hilarious comedy of fabricated finances. Sly investments and double-dealing abound in this madcap comedy. Can Harold outwit the Russian mob while pulling the wool over the eyes of the SEC agent out to bust him?
"Sunday in the Park with George" - July 24 - August 11
Book by James Lapine, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Pulitzer Prize-winning musical inspired by Georges Seurat's pointillist masterpiece "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."
Seurat's distinctive art and Sondheim's music create a moving, poetic piece of theater which explores how life, inspiration and art are intertwined.
"The Game's Afoot", by Ken Ludwig - August 14 - Sept. 1
From the master of mayhem comes the Wisconsin premiere of a whodunit featuring actor William Gillette, world famous for his stage persona of Sherlock Holmes. When someone is stabbed at Gillette's home, he dons his Holmes stage persona to sidestep danger and unmask the culprit in this murderous romp.
"Miracle on South Division Street", by Tom Dudzick - Sept. 4 - Oct. 20
A heartfelt and hilarious family comedy that is selling out across the country. All heck breaks loose on south Division Street when a deathbed confession shakes the Nowak family to its core, leaving them to unravel a family legend with uproarious results.
