While many of Festival’s guest artists for the summer are getting ready to leave, this weekend’s shows are not the last you will see of this summer’s artists. Shelley Whitehead, Robbye Lewis and Daniel Olson will be appearing at Festival Theatre this fall. Rehearsals are already underway for the Youth and Family Series production of My Name is Rumpelstiltskin, which includes 15 local youth actors and is being directed by Shelley Whitehead (Mrs. White in Clue and M’Lynn in Steel Magnolias). Robbye Lewis (Ouiser in Steel Magnolias) and Daniel Olson (Mr. Boddy in Clue) will also be returning for roles in this October’s production of On Golden Pond.
While the summer is at a close, Festival’s artists are already hard at work for upcoming shows starting September 9th, and like this summer, are sure not to disappoint.
Auditions for youth roles in A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas and On Golden Pond are taking place this weekend. Interested Youth should contact the Box Office immediately for information about how to register. Tickets for Festival Theatre’s Theatre Series are $13.50 for youth ages 5-25 and $26.00 for adults. Festival Theatre is currently located at the Franklin Square Black Box at 125 N. Washington St, Saint Croix Falls, WI.
