In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. By Barbara Robinson

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. By Barbara Robinson

STORM - A Marine Concert

  • Riverbank Theatre

Storm is one-part history lesson and one-part rock concert recounting the famous shipwrecks of the Great Lakes. The show fuses actual eyewitness interviews, spellbinding underwater video, and contemporary music that creates a unforgettable history lesson. Storm remembers the terrifying gales, and the survivals of sailors who were caught in the tempest. Over 300 years of exploration and navigation are unveiled to the audience, from French fur trading ships to modern cement boats that currently ply the lakes. Ric Mixter, who has been featuring on the History and Discover channels as an expert on Great Lakes storms will narrate the stories, and Dan Hall will provide the melody and lyrics derived from historical accounts of survivors. With an estimated 5,000 shipwrecks on the lakes, Storm will always be a new experience.

Written Off

  • The Mariner

http://marinertheater.net/products/written-off-saturday-july-8-7-00-pm-0706

Grippingly honest personal journals reveal the secrets one man worked so hard to conceal as an innocent prescription for painkillers leads to a 10-year struggle to escape opiates and the stigma that surrounds his addiction.

Synopis:

Matt Edwards grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, where the winters are long, they call the mosquito the state bird and his hometown was so small that it didn't have a single store. His first high came from pills prescribed by a doctor for a botched toe surgery.

Matt was driven by a desperate need to get a fix. To get what he needed he spun a web of fiction. He was a magnificent liar - smart, creative, persuasive - his lies fed his addiction as much as the actual drugs.

But Matt told the truth to himself in two spiral bound journals. He chronicled his daily drug use - sort of like the Bridget Jones of addiction but in cc's, milligrams and dollars instead of pounds, drinks and cigarettes. His journals also tell the story of his countless attempts to quit

How does a smart, loving, promising kid go from acting in the high school play to putting a needle in his arm? Written Off reveals that journey, in Matt's own words - with a twist - the commonly held assumptions are all wrong. He isn't weak - only someone strong could survive an addiction like his for ten years. He isn't getting high to party - he's avoiding the wrenching pain of withdrawal. He isn't shirking responsibility - he blames himself for everything. Behind the addiction, there is a person - all at once lovable and despicable, funny and pathetic, destructive and aware of his failings. Like the early days of the HIV crisis, blaming the victim is the first thing that needs to change. Written Off can do for addiction what Philadelphia did for HIV.
