Wabeno Area Players Eager to Take the Stage!

After a months-long interval between curtain calls, Wabeno Area Players (WAP) is very eager to take the stage again! And although it’s an extremely short 2021 season with only one production, it’s going to be a brilliant replay of one of WAP’s favorites: Planting Season. First performed in October 2016 and written by emeritus playwright Daniel Boatright, this is a delightful comedy that promises much laughter and levity. Here’s a teaser for you:

Digby Dye is a funeral home operator in Wabeno, whose dream career as a veterinarian was cut short by a petty politician and a barn full of dead racehorses. He and his business partner, Gustav, have unexpectedly found themselves accomplices of a fashionista, who is involved in fashion fraud. Add to the mix a mafia kingpin with an abundance of bodies to hide, plus a Kentucky bootlegger attempting to get his “old family recipe” up to thousands of thirsty Canadians, and you have the perfect prescription for hilarity! Several other characters add to the comedic chaos.

This is a show you won’t want to miss! Performances will take place at the Nancy Volk Auditorium at Wabeno High School located at 4325 Branch St. Showtimes are as follows:

Thursday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m.

Friday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.
