Weidner Downtown Series announced | News, Sports, Jobs – The Daily News

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Weidner presents, with their partners at The Tarlton Theatre, the lineup for the 2024 Weidner Downtown Series.

The new series kicks off Thursday, Jan. 18. This ongoing series, now entering its third year, showcases local and regional talent performing fresh and eclectic pieces that feel perfectly at-home in a downtown setting.

The Weidner Downtown Series of Events:

— “Every Brilliant Thing,” by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe, 7 p.m. Jan. 18-21. Performed by Greg Pragel. Directed by Cody Estle.

A boy’s handwritten list to cheer up his despondent mom becomes a surprisingly funny and poignant ode to humanity. The story follows a narrator who takes audiences on a coming-of-age journey that reminds us to pay attention to life’s smallest joys — and to each other. Tickets $20. Dinner and table add-ons available.

— “Man with a Movie Camera,” a screening of the 1929 film, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 29

Presented as part of University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Sharon J. Resch Institute of Music’s 6:30 Concert Series, this film screening of Dziga Vertov’s landmark silent film with an original score performed live by Resch Institute faculty and friends. Event is free and open to the public.

— “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” by Nassim Soleimanpour, 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 13. Performed by Noah Simon.

With no rehearsal, no director, a different actor each night and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed “White Rabbit Red Rabbit,” by Iranian writer Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theater. Pay what you wish at the door.

— “Scarecrow: A Solo Play,” written and performed by Heidi Armbruster, 7 p.m. Saturday, March 23.

A big-city actress lands back at her family’s Wisconsin dairy farm to grieve herself back to life. A look at resilience and renewal. Tickets $20. Dinner and table add-ons available.

All events in series are at The Tarlton Theatre in downtown Green Bay. Tickets and more information are available now at WeidnerCenter.com.

The Tarlton is a circa-1925 Art Deco, draft house cinema and performing arts venue, with a menu of classic and modern American cuisine and craft beverages. For more information, go to thetarlton.com, or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
