2009/10 Season

Venture Theatre is proud and excited to announce the slate of shows for our Fifth season of providing all original, locally produced theatre to Northeast Wisconsin.

Movie Game
September 18th – October 10th, 2009
written by Adam Humel; directed by Maria Bartholdi
Jack Goldberg loves movies. He loves them so much he can’t keep a job and still lives with his parents. His mother forces him to see “The Shrink To The Stars” whose idea of therapy is to have Jack play the leading man in his own romantic comedy. Things spiral out of control with an over-the-top director, his crazy family, his best friend Samantha, and the romantic interest – the beautiful, but engaged Maggie, with whom Jack has fallen head over heels in love. A feel-good romantic comedy.

The Big Idea
November 6th – November 28th, 2009
written by Jon Bruinooge, John Egan, and Ken Goltz; directed by Matt Worzala
This is the story of two business people who come up with the greatest idea EVER… and the struggle that ensues with their boss and his minions who will stop at nothing to take it, and all the credit for it.

One Act Theatre Festival
February 5th – February 27th, 2010
written and directed by many
Venture Theatre’s One-Act Theatre Festival returns for a fifth year to delight audiences once again with another eclectic anthology of comedy, drama and romance. Don’t miss the chance to see original short plays that you can’t find anywhere else!

APS: Aerial Port Squadron – The Stageshow – CANCELLED
April 9th – May 1st, 2010
written by Joe Abrahamson; directed by Tessie Micke
Its nearing the end of the enlistment for two Airmen in the United States Air Force. In order to keep their “legacy” alive they take a brand new Airman under their wing to show him the ropes. At the same time, the show explores the social life of military members during peace time and tries to have as much fun as possible. Based on semi-true events, lightly peppered with fiction.
