Thursday

'Two Gentlemen of Verona':A company of student actors will work and prepare this Shakespearean comedy in a manner referred to today as 'original practices.' Some people believe that in The Bard's day much more of the show was the creative and technical product of the individual actors than today's practice of director- and designer-led cohesively conceptual performances. With very little time for group rehearsals, the performances take on an added intensity and energy resulting in truly unique, onetime events. This show goes on at 7:30 p.m. in the Raabe Theatreon the Wisconsin Lutheran College campus, 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. General admission tickets cost $5. Visit wlc.edu and click on 'Upcoming Events' to buy tickets.
