UW-Green Bay presents Wilder’s ‘Theophilus North’ as first play
We’ll have a link to full details in our Log Extra later this week, but we’re one week out from the UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance program’s production of the charming comedy-drama Theophilus North, which opens at 7:30 p.m. next Thursday (Oct. 15) in the Jean Weidner Theatre. Performances are Oct. 15-17 and 21-24. Set in 1926 during the height of the Jazz Age, the play follows the character Theophilus North as he quits his teaching position in New Jersey and embarks on a quest for fun, adventure and a place in the world. When his broken-down car strands him in Newport, Rhode Island, he makes do by doing odd jobs in homes of the wealthy. It’s a Matthew Burnett play based upon the semi-autobiographical final work of Pulitzer Prize-winner Thornton Wilder. For ticket info.
