UW-Waukesha Winter's Children Play-The Tortoise And The Hare Race Again!

Jan. 13, 2011

UW-Waukesha Announces Children’s Play The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again!

 

WAUKESHA– Producer Jeff Smerz, West Allis, is leading a UW-Waukesha Winterim class production of The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again, a play for all ages, on Friday, January 21 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The 45-minute show is being presented by a UW-Waukesha Winterim class in conjunction with the Waukesha and Pewaukee Parks and Recreation Department. Students play a crucial role in every aspect of production from choosing the story to building sets, creating costumes and, of course, directing and performing in the final show. It is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc.

 

Written by Dan Neidermyer, The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again recreates the classic fable with a contemporary twist. "If only..." has been the story of the Rabbit's life ever since he lost that race to the Tortoise. He's sure he could win if they raced again with the help of his forest friends!

Appearing in the ensemble production are:

Carly Malison, Milwaukee, as Rabb

 

Caitlin Thiele, Oconomowoc, as Squeak

 

Brenna Thiele, Oconomowoc, as Diode

 

Charlie Waite, Waukesha, as Woody

 

Caitlin O’Malley, East Troy, as Smickers

 

Josh Dieball, Delafield, as Tort

 

 

Directors and Production Crew are:

 

Wendy Newburg, Oconomowoc

 

Caitlin O’Malley, East Troy

 

Shannon Smith, New Berlin

 

Charlie Waite, Waukesha

 

The performance takes place in the Lunt-Fontanne Theater, located on the UW-Waukesha campus in the Fine Arts Center on campus at 1500 N. University Dr. Tickets for The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again are $5 general admission. The box office opens one hour prior to each performance. For ticket information, phone (262)-521-5494.

 

The UW-Waukesha Lunt-Fontanne Ensemble presents a wide variety of productions. As a college theatre program, education is the primary goal, and shows are produced in a variety of genres. The upcoming spring production is Columbinus, a drama written by Stephen Karam, Sean McNall, and P.J. Paparelli, and will be performed April 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. and on April 1 and 3 at 2 p.m.
