July 15-20, 2014 – Muskie Love 

Muskie Love UWW College of Arts & CommunicationIf Shakespeare had been born in modern-day Green Bay, he might have written Muskie Love, a whopper of a musical loosely based on Much Ado About Nothing.

This fish slapping tale tells of two rival fishing guides, Ben and Bea, both happily single. Despite their sworn hatred, our couple finds themselves bizarrely drawn to each other. Throw in the DNR, the ever-present Wisconsin obsession with the Packers, a few jokes, and a delightful blend of songs – and you’ve got Muskie Love.
