Eurydice

SPRING 2018

Eurydice

Directed by Margot Lange*

Eurydice, March 30, 31, April 5, and 6 at 7:30 pm, Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, 1500 N. University Ave, Waukesha, WI 53186.

Eurydice transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for and is full of dark humor, lyrical beauty, and wit. On the day of her wedding she is ripped from her beloved, the greatest musician Orpheus, and exiled to the Underworld. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living again can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead.

Summer 2018

UW-Waukesha Lunt-Fontanne Ensembe and Lake Country Playhouse present: PIPPIN  at UW-Waukesha, August 17, 18, 24, 25 at 7:30pm; August 26 at 2pm

Directed by Steve Decker and Sandra Renick
Music Directed by Cathy Pfeiler
Choreography by Ryan Cappleman
Produced by Steven Decker
 

Pippin features a troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Player’s chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers.
