Sep. 6, 2018 - Oct. 28, 2018: Grease

An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals, along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals. Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950’s. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the sound track of a generation.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday.

The Fireside Dinner Theatre, 1131 Janesville Ave, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538, USA

Oct. 27, 2018: Cambridge Halloween Costume Parade

Halloween costumes are so much fun, they should be worn on more days than one! Dress up in your favorite costume and join us for a Halloween costume parade in Cambridge on Saturday, October 27th!

Children of all ages (and their families) are invited to show off their Halloween costumes as we parade around Veteran’s Park in downtown Cambridge, followed by a “Trick or Treating Trail” where kids can trick or treat downtown businesses!

Want to get in on the fun? Meet in the parking lot behind Badger Bank (102 W. Main Street, Cambridge) at 2:45pm to line up to walk in the parade. The parade will begin at 3:00pm, starting from the Badger Bank parking lot on Spring St, heading to North St, and then Park St. The total parade route is about 2.5 blocks long making it an easy distance for little legs and kiddos eager to get their hands on some candy!

At the end of the parade, kids will pick up a “Trick or Treating Trail” map letting them know which downtown businesses are participating in Trick or Treating, and then they’re off! Enjoy the rest of the time visiting and trick or treating downtown businesses in any order you’d like.

Not interested in dressing up? We could use some spectators, too! Come on out and line up along the perimeter of Veteran’s Park to cheer on our little superheroes, goblins, princesses, and ghouls!

This Halloween Costume Parade was an idea sparked by Kate Rogers, a third grader at Cambridge Elementary. She thought it would be fun for kids to have a chance to wear their Halloween costumes more than just on Halloween night. We hope you think so too, and we hope to see you there!


Veteran's Park, Cambridge WI, 102 W. Main Street, Cambridge WI 53523
