Join us for our 2018-2019 theatre season: Decisions Determine Destiny.
Milwaukee playwright, Liz Shipe’s Bonny Anne Bonny
Anne Bonny was a real-life female pirate from the early 18th century who traveled with her friend Mary Reade around the Caribbean.
Anne having disguised herself as a man to serve under Captain Blackbeard is discovered with her husband Calico Jack. Blackbeard feels betrayed, but Mary Reade saves the day by burning the ship and all of Blackbeard’s crew jumps ship. Left on their own, the three friends head to port to find a new crew and a new ship.
The new crew is a tapestry of women: Anne’s longtime partner, Mary Reade; Lila, a dreamy adolescent and Magpie, and a feral sprite; an abused housewife, Posey and a mousy servant, Jenny; an aging barmaid, Sally and the woman she serves, Jane.
This new crew must face off against an unlikely trio. Blackbeard wants revenge, De Corazon wants his wife, Jane, back. So the two pirates join forces with British Captain Pressley to bring down Anne Bonny and her crew.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid
Mermaid princess Ariel is fascinated by the world and lives of people on dry land and longs to someday join them, though her father, King Triton forbids contact. When she falls in love with human Prince Eric from afar, she makes a deal with her father’s sister and enemy Ursula: she is temporarily transformed into a human and may remain so if she wins the kiss of true love from her prince within three days. The dangerous mission leads to a showdown between good and evil forces which only love can remedy. Will Ariel save the day or will she forever become sea foam?
Sometimes we don’t feel right in our own skin, sometimes we need to change. Join us for an amazing story about finding your own away and who you are in a new skin and different world.
This Disney Theatrical-produced musical is based on the 1989 Disney film and the 1837 fairytale penned by Hans Christian Andersen.
William Shakespeare’s Macbeth

The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
