‘Wonder of the World’ to open this week at UW-Green Bay
UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance presents ‘Wonder of the World’ Feb. 22-24, Feb. 28-March 3.
GREEN BAY – The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Theatre presents the play Wonder of the World by David Lindsay-Abaire at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22 to 24 and Feb. 28 to Mar. 3, 2017 in the Jean Weidner Theatre of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. The play is recommended for mature audiences.
Nothing will prepare audience members for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that the heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
