This will be the featured production of the Wisconsin Association of Community Theatre Conference being held in Wabeno at the Wabeno High School and Nancy Volk Auditorium. The conference will focus on workshops devoted to community theatre or high school theatre. Workshops are led by experts that have or are working with community/high school theatre in many areas. These workshops are for those with experience, little experience, or no experience in producing a theatrical production. The workshops are open to adults and students as well. Anyone interested or involved in theatre is welcome to attend. These workshops would include: acting, directing, stage management, improvisation, sound & lights, volunteerism, AACTFest, and state community theater networking. This is also a great opportunity to get to know other theatre people from around the state, share ideas, possibly exchange costumes or props, and have a great time.
A little about Play On…
This is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
