Big weekend for Sutton, Rough Draft, Sutton’s plays
Prof. Brian Sutton and his band Rough Draft have a going-away gig, of sorts, this Friday (May 18) from 7 to 11 p.m. at A’s Restaurant and Music Café in De Pere. It’s the farewell performance for vocalist Shelbi Cox, who is moving from the area after graduating last weekend. Bigger than that, however, is opening night this Saturday (May 19) at Venture Theatre, 353 Main Avenue, De Pere, for Sutton’s paired one-act plays: “Running Mates,” a romantic comedy, and “Can I Buy You a Drink?”, a music revue featuring 12 of his original songs. The plays will also be performed May 25-26 and June 1. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
