For the Antigo Times
If you missed last year’s production of Wabeno Area Players The Hallelujah Girls, don’t miss Funny Little Thing Called Love. The girls are back in this new Janes Hope Wooten comedy. You will laugh, cry (because you laughed so hard) and might even pee your pants! Don’t worry, you won’t be the only one.
The Wabeno Area Players have teamed up with The Christian Food Pantry in Townsend and the Wabeno High School Band for this production. Please bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Christian Food Pantry. Each item you bring gives you a chance to win tickets to the July production of The Dastardly Doctor Devereaux. We are also raising money for the Wabeno High School Band. You will be able to purchase tickets to win an amazing basket worth over $700! The basket contains amazing fragrances (Valentino and Prada just to name two), relaxation items to please anyone and so much more. Come to the show and support several causes at once! Tableside beverage service and free popcorn before each show and at intermission. Afterglow party following Friday’s performance at the Big Easel Bistro.
This funny comedy is all about that four-letter word: L-O-V-E. Under a full moon on this unpredictable night of romance, these four rollicking tales take you on an around-the-globe journey of unexpected and hilarious twists and turns:
A slick, successful used-car-selling Romeo in Dallas, Texas, believes he’s answering Cupid’s call, only to realize too late that he’s wandered into a life-changing trap set by three fed-up Juliets.
On an island getaway, The Hallelujah Girls, a group of fun-loving gals from Georgia, say aloha to their wild sides as they accidentally crash a Hawaiian honeymoon in progress. These five women—and Waikiki—will never be the same!
In a rooftop London bistro, sparks fly when two strangers surprisingly start to connect, only to be thwarted by a hyperactive American tourist who’s determined to be the center of attention, and the unpredictable antics of an ancient waitress who wields a wicked sousaphone.
And finally, in Manhattan, a man tries to battle his way out of a mid-life crisis with an ill-advised and elaborate marriage proposal. Unfortunately, it all goes wildly off-track when his caterer passes out, a tap-dancing singing telegram girl breaks into sobs rather than song, his ex-wife saunters in wearing nothing but a bathrobe and a smile, and a cowering superhero inches nervously across his twelfth-floor window ledge. So, open your heart to romantic mayhem and come join the fun! By the time the evening is over and the moon works its magic, love will conquer all and your sides will ache from laughter!
