Theatre to present ‘Censored on Final Approach’ beginning Feb. 27
Coming off a popular and award-winning run of Avenue Q: The Musical, UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance is preparing for its next mainstage production, premiering Thursday, Feb. 27. Censored on Final Approach is the tale of an elite group of female World War II fighter pilots who were selected to serve as Women Airforce Service Pilots, or WASPs. The women were championed by pioneer American aviator Jacqueline Cochran, but were not embraced by their male counterparts and therefore struggled for acceptance on a daily basis. The play brings to life a dark time of bigotry, sabotage and the consequent cover-up of an all-but-forgotten chapter of American history. Guest directed by Chicago-based director, designer, actor and dancer Shifra Werch, the show runs Feb. 27-28 and March 1 and 5-8 in the Jean Weidner Theatre at the Weidner Center.
