American Folklore Theatre has UWGB ties
The American Folklore Theatre can now add “award winning” to its long list of accolades. American Folklore Theatre was awarded the inaugural Wisconsin Department of Tourism Award for Arts, Culture and Heritage at this week’s Wisconsin Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Green Bay. American Folklore Theatre, headquartered in Door County, is the resident theatre troupe at Peninsula State Park. The organization has strong UWGB ties, getting its start with University outreach in the 1970s. Folklore Theatre mainstay Fred Heide is a UW-Green Bay grad. We have mentioned him many times over the years in our alumni magazine, click here.
