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

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.
