White Rabbit Red Rabbit
by Nassim Soleimanpour

An OHS Fringe Fundraiser

7:30 p.m. Jan 15-17 & 22-4 2015 
4 p.m. Jan 18 & 25, 2015

Tickets: Adults $15  (General Seating - only 200 seats available per show)
Service Fees May Apply

The OAC's 8-performance engagement of White Rabbit
Red Rabbit follows Soleimanpour’s rules: A script
waits in a sealed envelope. The audience arrives and each night
a different actor steps on stage, opens the envelope and for the
first and last time, reads the script aloud. No rehearsals. No director.
No set. A different actor for each performance.  

“In a brilliant paradox, Soleimanpour exerts deliberate and
near-total 
control over an actor and an audience from his own
isolation in Tehran.” 
—Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

All ticket sales will go toward the 2015 OHS Player Fringe Festival trip to Scotland.

"Painted Pairings"
Artists featured from Splash Studio, a Milwaukee painting bar

January 9 - February 7, 2015

Reception: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 16, 2015
prior to The Cabaret Cafe's "Copper Box" show at 7 p.m.

Painting Pairings celebrates Splash Studio’s mission ‘to offer a unique
social environment in which people can explore 
their creativity while
supporting the local artistic community.’

Each painting in the Splash Library has been commissioned from a
local artist, with the goal of creating a diverse yet accessible portfolio
of paintings that reflect the current trends 
of the Milwaukee arts
community. As such, many of the Library paintings are based on the
original artist’s own 
personal style and this show highlights the best
examples of this. By pairing a painting commissioned for the Splash
Library with an original work of art from the same artist, the exhibit
offers an insider’s view of how a Splash painting 
comes to life.
Enjoy this unique ‘peak behind the curtain.’

"Unforgettable" A documentary film on Brad Williams
- dubbed as a human "Google"
By screenwriter/filmaker Eric Williams 

7 p.m. Friday, January 31, 2015

Tickets: $10 (General Seating) 
Service Fees May Apply

Unforgettable tells the fascinating story of Brad Williams. Featured on
60 Minutes and dubbed “the Human Google” by Good Morning America,
Brad is only the second person ever studied for Hyperthymesia (also
known as superior autobiographical memory), an uncanny and detailed
recall of his entire life. 

Screenwriter/filmmaker Eric Williams (Mad City, Lip Service) follows his
brother Brad’s journey through one eventful year, as media coverage
of Brad’s rare mental gift makes him an unlikely celebrity, vaulting him
from small-town anonymity to sudden midlife notoriety.

Unforgettable is an intimate and humorous portrait of an exceptional 
individual and an intriguing exploration into the mysteries of the
human mind.

A Q & A with Brad and Eric Williams will immediately follow the 
film’s screening.

110 Stories
by SarahTuft

Presented by The OHS Players

7:30 p.m. April 30, May -12, 2015 and

(Reserved Seating)
Service Fees May Apply

110 Stories captures the grief and resilience of New York City in the
wake of September 11th through the words of 
those who experienced
it directly—not only the firefighters and police, but the ironworkers,
chaplains, K9 handlers, 
nurses, photojournalists and the homeless 
who witnessed the horrific events and saved lives that day, too.
Together these 
unflinching first-person testimonials offer catharsis
by revealing the hope, humor and compassion that emerged in the 
midst of this tragedy.

Memorializing 9/11 by sharing the stories no one saw on the news,
this play is a powerful and 
humanizing account of New York City’s 
darkest day—nearly 15 years later.

“Instead of exploiting the despair of that day, 
this production captures the moments afterward,
when survivors found 
strength they didn’t know they had.”
- The New York Post

$2 from every ticket sold will go toward the 2015 OHS Player Fringe Festival trip.
