CMN’s Fall Theater Production Will Be a Radio Comedy

 

The College of Menominee Nation (CMN) invites the public to attend a theater production staged on separate nights at the Menominee Indian High School in Keshena and at the Norbert Hill Center in Oneida. This production will mark the thirteenth time CMN has collaborated with the Oneida Nation Arts Program to bring live theater to both the Menominee and Oneida communities. This semester CMN will present three episodes from Cherokee author Thomas King's radio comedy, “The Dead Dog Café Comedy Hour.” Set in the fictional town of Blossom, Alberta, the humorous show features three friends interviewing celebrity guests and performing segments titled "Aboriginal Decorating Tips," "Ask Tonto," and "Blackout Bingo." The production features live acting and music, sound effects, and projected imagery.

 

CMN students involved in the productions include the following: Kelly Bovin, Sabrina Hemken, Andrew Heubel, Catherine Majer, Trenton Miller, Georgie Potts, Catherine Walter, and Joseph Waukechon.

 

Showings both evenings begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free. The Wednesday, Dec. 6, production is in the Menominee Indian High School’s theater, N500 STH 47/-55 in Keshena. On Thursday, Dec. 7, the production is in the auditorium of the Norbert Hill Center, N7210 Seminary Road in Oneida.

 

The show is directed by CMN faculty member Ryan Winn. This is a one hour production.
