"Wisconsin and Afar"
July 11 - Oct 3, 2015

Artists: Anne Raskopf and Heidi Hallett

Reception: 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept 19, prior to Tom Wopat performance at 7:30 p.m.  

The exhibit, Wisconsin and Afar, will explore Wisconsin’s
heritage 
through the facades and faces that surround us and through the distant influences on our buildings and way of life. The paintings will offer hints of those that came before us and the cultures they brought along with them. Much can be told through our unspoken images, and these images may recall nearly forgotten stories enabling them to be shared
anew.

Suitcase Dreams - An OHS Fringe Performance
7:30 p.m. Friday & Saturday, July 24 & 25, 2015

The OHS Players present Suitcase Dreams, the play they will be taking to the Edinburg Fringe Festival through the American High School Theatre Festival. Oconomowoc’s theater program was one of just 40 schools  selected from more than 2,200 high schools from the US and Canada. Only 10 schools from Wisconsin have performed at the Fringe and OHS is one of just four schools in the state to be invited to the festival twice in the last 20 years.

Unpacking stories of great and small adventures, brave departures, wrenching farewells and the things that travelers choose to carry, Oconomowoc High School Players weave drama comedy, absurdity, and fantasy with a physical style of storytelling combining both live and recorded music.

Suitcase Dreams was created by Tony Award-winning actress Karen Olivo, acclaimed New York City Directory Tyler Marchant, nationally produced playwright Gwendolyn Rice and co-artistic directors of Theatre LILA, and Wisconsive natives, Jessica Lanius and Milke Lawler. This can't miss new play will showcase the best theatrical talent Wisconsin has to offer. 

General Admission Tickets will be available at the door
Adults $15 / Students $10

SummerStage presents A Day for Grace
7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept 10, 2015 

Written and Performed by Doug Vincent
Original Music by Sam Llanas (formerly of the BoDeans)
Music Direction and Directed by Gary Tanin

A Day of Grace is a heartwarming play of hope and triumph over adversity. The play deals with alcoholism, bullying, drug addiction, dysfunctional families, mental illness and suicide. Vincent began writing the play after his father ended his life. Coincidentally, everyone involved in the production also lost a family member in the same tragic way. This will be a powerful performance! 

Tickets can be purchased online at summer-stage.org, at the SummerStage downtown Delafield office or at the OAC one hour prior to the event. 

Tickets: $10 - Tickets are NOT available through the OAC Website or Box Office

Joseph Lecher 
Autumn Preludes
7 p.m. Saturday, Oct 3, 2015

Distinguished pianist Josephy Lecher started his instrumental career at age 11, but his professional studies began when he was age 20. He credits the 2002 Roman Polanski film The Pianist as the impetus for reengaging himself in the study of the piano after high school and a few directionless semesters at a local university. He enrolled in private lessons at Hartland Music and met Margarita Kontorovsky who started his true education of music. She offered profound insight into the great works of the master composers and pushed him to pursue his academic pathway. Join him in this professional concert, celebrating classic composers and the season of fall.

The program includes: J.S. Bach - 6 Little Preludes, Beethoven - Piano Sonata 17 in D minor “The Tempest” Op. 31 no. 2 and Chopin - 24 Preludes, Op. 28.

Reserved Seating
Adults $15 / High School & Younger $10
