Restoring Oconomowoc’s Orchestral History

The Chatfield instruments were donated to the 
Oconomowoc Area School District by Frank Chatfield
in 1937. They were comprised of two violins, one viola 
and a cello. Chatfield, a long-time city planner for 
Oconomowoc, took up the hobby of building and repairing 
stringed instruments, most notably, violins, violas and cellos.

He harvested wood for his instruments from trees in the
Lac La Belle area, and 
some of that wood, which still exists,
will be used to repair the instruments. The 
donated
instruments were used by students for several decades
until 
they fell into disrepair and were eventually put in
storage.

In 2015 OHS Principal Joseph Moylan had a decision to make,
whether to dispose 
of the instruments or preserve them. He chose to
save the instruments, to save the instruments, but not 
just for  museum status. After
consulting renowned luthier, Scott Sleider of 
Wauwatosa, it was determined tha the
instrument could be restored to playing condition.

The first instrument to be completed will be the cello in early 2018 with the
others to follow shortly thereafter. 
The four instruments will be featured in a
special concert in late spring of 2018 at the conclusion of the 
OAC 10th
anniversary season.

BASKERVILLE

MA Sherlock Holmes Myster by Ken Ludwig

Feb 23-25

7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb 23
7 p.m. Friday, Feb 24 

2 & 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb 25 

This year's senior directed play is Baskerville,
a Sherlock Holmes mystery written by the 
hilarious playwright, Ken Ludwig.

Directed by Oconomowoc High School seniors
Peggie Alexander and Ian Smith, this play is based 
on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous story, "The 
Hounds of the Baskervilles. "It tells the story of 
Sherlock Holmes' and Dr. Watson's greatest case
yet! When Sir Charles Baskerville is murdered
and suspected culprit appears to be a demonic 
hound, Sherlock and Watson are there to investigate.
They are quickly interrupted by the heir to the 
Baskerville estate, Sir Henry, an American from
Texas. According to legend there is a demonic
hound that is rumored to kill again.

In a turn of events filled with red herring, British
accents, love affairs, and the genius dynamic duo
of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Ken Ludwig
creates an exciting, fast paced and hilarious 
comedy.  

Tickets can be purchased during OHS' lunch period
from 11:05 to 11:40 a.m. 
starting Wednesday, Feb 1,
just outside the OHS Library. Tickets are also available

We hope to see you at the show. Thank You!

Silver Lake Intermediate School presents
Rodgers & Hammerstein's G2K

CINDERELLA

Music by Richard Rodgers
Book & Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Adapted by Tom Briggs

March 9-11

7 p.m. March 9-11 & 
2 p.m. March 11 

Each year, one of the Oconomowoc
Area School District’s Intermediate
Schools has the opportunity to produce,
perform and experience a live
performance on the OAC’s Neudecker
Main Stage. For the 2016/17 school year,
Silver Lake Intermediate School will
present the timeless and magical fairy 
tale, Cinderella. The story is reborn with
the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks
of originality, charm and elegance.
Initially presented on television in
1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers
& Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the
most widely viewed program in the
history of the medium. Modified for the
stage, with great warmth and more
than a touch of merriment, the hearts
of children and adults alike still soar
when the slipper fits.

The Getting 2 Know (G2K) Series was
created by the Rodgers & Hammerstein
Company specifically for youth
performers to produce the classics
of musical theater and introduce
them to a young audience members.

The CRUCIBLE

By Arthur Miller

7:30 p.m. May 14-16
2 p.m. May 16 

The year is 1692. Evil is lurking within
the devout community of Salem,
Massachusetts, and no one is beyond
suspicion. A farmer, his distraught wife,
and a dangerous young woman are caught
in a flash of hysteria that forces them all to
face the ultimate test.

Based on the Salem Witch Trials and
serving as an allegory to the infamous
Red Scare of the McCarthyera 1950s,
Arthur Miller’s masterpiece remains
one of the most powerful and thrilling
plays of our time. Never before has this
play felt more relevant--as accusations
are thrown, religion is defended and the
end results prove how very little we seem
to have learned from our past. The Crucible
is not-to-bemissed, pulse-racing,
theatrical magic!

ARMED FORCES DAY USO SHOW

7:30 P.M. Saturday, May 20

Act 1: THE ACCIDENTAL HERO
Starring Patrick Dewane

The Accidental Hero is a multi-media one
man show about a WWII American officer
who miraculously liberates the Czech
villages of his grandparents. The officer,
Lt. Colonel Matt Konop was from
Stangelville, Wisconsin, a town  near
Appleton.

It’s a true story, written and performed by
his grandson, Patrick Dewane. This heart
warming tale of miraculous escapes spans
the gamut of tears to laughs, survival and
coincidence. The show  utilizes found
treasures including vintage video, photos,
sound clips and writings that were once
stored in a basement and are brought to life! 

Act 2: THE RADIO ROSIES
Musical Tribute to the Songs of WWII

Allow yourself to be drawn back in time as
the pure, sweet harmonies of The Radio
Rosies recall the nostalgia and
enchantment of jazz, boogie-woogie and
swing. Charming  songs such as
“Sugartime,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”
and “In the Mood” will really spin
your hat, while old wartime tunes "We'll
Meet Again” and “Apple Blossom
Time” will remind you of times when
sweethearts waited for their soldiers to
come home.

Join us for a night of reminiscence and
timeless delight as The Radio Rosies
perform the unforgettable numbers from
the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s.
