Wabeno Area Players Present… Farce of Habit

November 21-23 at 7:00 p.m.

November 23 & 24 at 1:00 p.m.

Madonna Hall, Wabeno, WI

Don’t miss a chance to enjoy a hilarious night or afternoon out!  This show is non-stop laughter from beginning to end.  It will be in the intimate setting of Madonna Hall.  Drink and beverage table service will be available.  This is the last production of the Players 2019 Season!

Comic fireworks explode in “FARCE OF HABIT,” a Southern-fried romp that takes us back to a fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Proprietor D. Gene Wilburn is looking forward to a peaceful weekend, but there are only two chances of that happening: slim and none.  Why has his wife picked these three days to begin caffeine withdrawal?  Why is his son’s marriage falling apart so fast?  How on earth would D. Gene’s sister get caught up in such a bizarre undercover police assignment? If this isn’t enough to thwart D. Gene’s weekend plans, he’s got a gaggle of nuns who’ve converged on the Inn for a nature retreat. Add to this a nationally known relationship guru whose colossal ego threatens everyone’s sanity; a shy retiree anxious to cut loose and embrace his “inner caveman” and a couple of wild women who may or may not be who they claim to be.  Throw in a storm of the century, and D. Gene has no prayer of baiting a hook any time soon. Oh, and did we mention there’s an axe murderer on the loose? If you love hilarity, then laughing your way through this comedy is one habit you’ll never want to break!

UW-Oshkosh Jazz Ensemble to Perform in Wabeno Area Players Fine Arts Series

The UW Oshkosh Jazz Ensemble, directed by Dr. Marty Robinson, is the premiere jazz group at the university.

The ensemble plays a wide variety of jazz big-band music, from the early swing era to classic 60s jazz to 80s jazz fusion to modern jazz, including everything in between, and prides itself on the ability to switch gears musically and present a rich and wide array of great jazz music, often featuring new composers and arrangers as well.
