I continue to be impressed with the work of the South Milwaukee Theatre Co. under Executive Director Tim Backes, his team and students.
The latest effort: an Advanced Theatre Series “intended to give students the opportunity to take on more mature, complex literature, as well as the opportunity to take a larger role in production.”
Their first show is this weekend: “Rabbit Hole.” Details here.
From the Facebook event …
We are thrilled to present the first ever production of the new SMHS Advanced Theatre Series. This series is intended to give students the opportunity to take on more mature, complex literature, as well as the opportunity to take a larger role in production. Advanced Theatre Series shows will be fully designed (costumes, hair, makeup, lighting, sound, set) by SMHS theatre students.
This year’s production, running June 21-22 at 7:30 PM in the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center, is RABBIT HOLE by David Lindsay-Abaire.
“Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RABBIT HOLE charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.”
*NOTE: This production features some strong language and mature themes. Recommended audience is high school and older.
This production will feature audience seating on stage in a black box style format. There will only be 100 tickets available per night and only two productions, so it is HIGHLY recommended you purchase tickets in advance.
