FEELIN' GROOVY AT CAMPANILE (Minocqua)
May 7, 2015 - May 7, 2015
Campanile Center for the Arts corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Minocqua, WI
FEELIN' GROOVY AT CAMPANILE - THURSDAY MAY 7th 7:00 P.M.
On May 7 at 7:00 p.m., the Campanile Center brings you Feelin' Groovy. Jim Witter returns to the Campanile stage - by your request - but with a different show. He delighted our audiences last year when he played the "Piano Men" concert featuring the music of Billy Joel and Elton John. The show we bring you this year focuses on all of the music of Simon & Garfunkel from the 60's.
You are in for a groovy trip down memory lane with Jim Witter, as he brings to life the music of Simon and Garfunkel! Jim has been performing nostalgia shows since 2001 and remarks, “This is the music I really love. Stepping on stage every night and playing these songs is a great honor and privilege”.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel formed the group "Tom and Jerry" in 1957, and had their first taste of success with the minor hit "Hey, Schoolgirl". As Simon and Garfunkel, the duo rose to fame in 1965, backed by the hit single "The Sound of Silence". They are well known for their close vocal harmonies and sometimes unstable relationship. They were among the most popular recording artists of the 1960s; among their biggest hits, in addition to "The Sound of Silence", were "I Am a Rock", "Homeward Bound", "A Hazy Shade of Winter", "Mrs. Robinson", "Bridge over Troubled Water", "The Boxer", "Cecilia", and "Scarborough Fair".
Whether it is his country music, the music of Billy Joel and Elton John, the Beatles, or Simon and Garfunkel's famous hits, Jim's versatility as an artist has allowed him the opportunity to reach out and share his music and his infectious personality with audiences of all ages across Canada and the United States. His unique approach and comfortable rapport makes each member of his audience feel as though they are a part of a private concert in the comfort of their own living room. His golden tenor at the grand piano will easily transport you back to the '60s....
The Campanile Center for the Arts is located in downtown Minocqua at the corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Tickets are Adults $20, and Students $10 and may be purchased by visiting our website: campanilecenter.org, by calling 715-356-9700, or at the door. Auditorium doors will open at 6:30 PM.

Denim & Dessert Readers Theatre presents the comedy "Red White & Tuna" (Presque Isle)
May 8, 2015 - May 9, 2015
Presque Isle Community Center off County B on School Loop Road Presque Isle
If you enjoyed Denim & Dessert's zany production of "A Tuna Christmas", then you'll love this next chapter in the lives of the wacky residents of Tuna, TX.
Denim & Dessert Readers Theatre presents the comedy "Red White & Tuna" at 7 PM Friday May 8 and Saturday May 9 at the Presque Isle Community Center, off County B on School Loop Road, free, donations gladly accepted.
Written by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams, with the permission of Samuel French Inc., this installment in the Tuna quartet of shows takes the audience on another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the kooky citizens of the Lone Star state's third smallest town.
Along with cast favorites, some new characters burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School class reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.
For those of you who are familiar with the Tuna saga, since we left Bertha and Arles dancing in front of the Christmas tree, did their romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any "cosmic" communications from R.R.'s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be answered in this side-splitting spoof.
Ably directed by Tom Erickson, the cast of thousands includes Charley Helfert, Grant Birmingham, Sharon and Bob Bridges, Pam Eschenbauch, Babs Bolduc, Judy Erickson, Dave Vogt, Dick Smith, Becky Jirikowic, Callie Bates, Barbara Just, Cela McGinnis, Cody Cator and Tess May. Carol Hartman will design the set, and everyone in the group puts in their volunteer time to entertain you with costumes, wigs and props.
No reservations are necessary; doors open at 6:30 PM, first come first get the best seats, and there will be a wine, beer and water cash bar. Call 715 904 9063 for any questions or to join this lively troupe of Northwoods players.

The agents of MISSION IMPROVable Comedy Team are just a few audience suggestions away from creating a brand new and original production that�s all about whatever you tell them!
This fast-paced and exciting new form of comedy is a combination of MTV's Wild-N- Out and Who's Line is it Anyway? but there is a bit of a twist. Just like in the old TV series Mission Impossible, the Chicagoan actors in Mission IMPROVable pretend to be agents. The audience members are the co-agents and participate in the hilarious theater games or missions by yelling out suggestions. The on-the-spot randomness provided by the audience makes each mission truly unique and very often hysterical.
Tickets available online at tlcfa.org

River City Rhapsody will begin at 7 p.m.; with the gates opening at 5 p.m. Tickets for the performance can be purchased in advance at rivercityrhapsody.com/wausau.php, or by calling 507.269.8280.
"The return of a regional drum corps show to the Wausau area is something people have been asking for and the Blue Stars are pleased to be partnering with local music programs to make it a reality,” said Gary Tollers, event coordinator. “Drum corps is the kind of entertainment that everyone in the family will enjoy. It is inspiring and exciting what these young people do on a football field."
Each corps consists of a hornline, drumline, front ensemble and colorguard. The 150 young men and women in each of the corps are 14 to 21 years old. The corps travel over 12,000 miles each summer, going daily from city to city competing in over 35 events in two months.
While in north Central Wisconsin, each corps will be housed at an area school and spend rehearsal time perfecting their summer programs which conclude in mid-August at the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis.
"These talented performers come from all over the United States and various other countries with many furthering their musical careers as music educators, dance directors and professional performers,” said Tollers.
North Central Wisconsin was once home to several Drum and Bugle Corps including Wausau Story, Wausau; Bells of St. Mary, Rhinelander; Zephyrs, Wisconsin Rapids and Maria, Stevens Point.
Various sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available for River City Rhapsody. Anyone interested should contact Tollers at 507.250.2776.
Support for this project is provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency, the Community Foundation, and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation.
