Cramer’s Corner: Here We Go … Our 62nd Mainstage Season Is Underway!

Our first Mainstage show of our historic 62nd season opens on Friday, September 14 and runs through the end of the month. The Musical Comedy Murders Of 1940 is a clever, funny mystery. It is NOT a musical, but it IS a comedy.

Our third PIX Flix film of the season is Singin’ In The Rain on Monday, September 17 at 6:30 pm. This film came in at the number one spot in our PIX Flix survey, so don’t delay…get your tickets NOW! This classic musical stars Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Cyd Charisse, and more! All PIX Flix tickets are $5.00, or groups of ten or more for $4.00 each. And of course we have concessions available, including soda, water, beer, wine, cookies, beef sticks, and POPCORN from Pop’s Kettle Corn!

Our Academy at Civic Theatre fall session will start September 24th. Registration is open for all our great theatre arts education offerings through June 2019.

Our current featured artist in the Waukesha State Bank Art Gallery is Carolyn Larkin through October 9.

We still have room on our bus to see Dear Evan Hansen in Chicago on February 27, 2019. If you are interested and want more information about either of these trips, let me know and I can send you the details.
