MAY 2020

May. 1, 2020 - May. 3, 2020: Youth FACT presents “Blather, Blarney, and Balderdash”

Fort Atkinson Community Theatre and Youth FACT are proud to present “Blather, Blarney, and Balderdash” cast with children in 2nd through 7th grade. Audition information coming soon!

The story: Three hilarious and action-packed Irish folk and fairy tales collide in raucous laughter when a trio of wild and crazy leprechauns try to help tongue-tied shepherd Fin O’Grady learn to tell a story and win the hand of his one true love. Assisted by the wee folk of Ireland, Blather, Blarney, and Balderdash enact ’The Hunchback of Knockgrafton,’ in which a simple man’s gentle nature wins him an unexpected prize and a cruel counterpart learns that it’s not a good idea to mess with little people. In ’The Griffin’s Feather,’ young Aidan bravely encounters a sneezing girl, a frenzied farmer, and a bombastic boatman before snatching three feathers from a hen-pecked griffin in order to cure a sleeping beauty. In ’The Bird, the Mouse, and the Cricket,’ a courageous lass and three magical animals risk their necks to help a sour prince regain his lost laughter. At last, the shy Fin discovers that a story is a treasure that increases the more you share it. This uplifting comedy combines clever dialogue with slapstick humor the whole family will enjoy.

The Second Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas is the largest volunteer monitoring effort ever to take place in Wisconsin. Come and learn all about what a breeding bird atlas is and how it was done, what birds are breeding in our local area, what the atlas results tell us about how birds are doing in Wisconsin and beyond, and what you can do to help birds.

Then, later that week on Saturday, May 9 at 1 pm, talk attendees and any other interested nature lovers are invited to join us for a free guided bird hike at the Adam Birding Conservancy ( This privately-held nature sanctuary near Cold Spring sits along the Bark River and is home to hundreds of bird species. Bring binoculars, waterproof footwear (rubber boots strongly recommended), and a water bottle if it’s warm. Also note there are no restrooms on site. Questions can be directed to
