With only one show opening-up in Milwaukee this weekend, there’s quite a lot opening up in the area next week . . . UWMFirst Stage and Milwaukee Chamber all have shows opening next weekend. There’s also a comedy at the Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove . . .if that wasn’t enough, UW-Parkside opens its theatre season next weekend as well.

UW-Parkside Associate Professor of Theatre Lisa Kornetsky directs the Classic 18th Century Oliver Goldsmith comedy She Stoops To Conquer. Something of a comedy of manners, something of a romantic comedy, and something of a comedy of something more, the show was a big hit when it debuted in England a little over three years before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The comedy has since become a favorite of English lit courses on both sides of the Atlantic. The plot circulates around and arranged marriage and other somewhat farcical social difficulties.

UW-Parkside’s production of She Stoops To Conquer runs October 16th – 23rd on the campus of UW-Parkside at 900 Wood Road in Kenosha. 



The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
