NOVEMBER 2018

Nov. 1, 2018 - Dec. 23, 2018: Elf The Musical

Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy is now a must-see holiday musical. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole.  The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true spirit of Christmas. This modern day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf!

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday

Saturdays: 9 a.m. – Noon

A collaboration of faculty and students at four UW campuses (UW-Whitewater, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Milwaukee, and UW-Madison), The Lands We Share initiative includes a traveling exhibition and public dialogue tour that focuses on the intersection of farming, land, ethnic culture, and history in Wisconsin. The exhibit will feature the stories, histories, artifacts, images and sounds of six culturally and regionally distinct farms and farm sites and invites visitors to share their own stories, insights and questions. The featured Johnson Creek farm is the Dettmann Dairy Farm.

Each stop on the tour will include a three-week run at a community-based venue near one of the six sites and a farm-to-table Community Conversation.
