Doug - a member of the Canadian Celtic group "Leahy" - and Jennifer - a musician for most of her life - both understand the joy and exhilaration only music can provide. It is no wonder, then, that their children inherited their passion for music. The children are accomplished and multi-instrumentalists performing on the fiddle, cello, French accordion, and piano. The show is bursting with electrifying Celtic-based music, singing, and French-Canadian step-dancing, along with the beautiful carols and melodies of the holiday season.

The Accidental Hero

WWII American officer, Matt Konop, refused to talk about his service in the war. Yet when he died his basement yielded a treasure trove of typewritten accounts, photos, and rare film footage. The Accidental Hero is a multi-media one-man show about this brave serviceman who miraculously liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. It's a remarkably true story of a Wisconsin hero, written and performed by grandson, Patrick Dewane. Dewane brings this archival material to glowing life as an enthralling, humorous, and heartwarming tale of miraculous escapes and astonishing coincidences. This touching show of jaw-dropping coincidences, plot twists, and triumph, runs from belly laughs to tears as Dewane takes on a dozen different roles, powerfully recounting his grandfather's journey from Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and the end of WWII.

Written by the late Sam Shepard and directed by Monroe Theatre Guild Director Nick Hartwig - a hard hitting, emotionally charged dark comedy. Sam Shepard, best known for his acting career was also a skilled, award winning playwright. Shepard's plays often tell the story of families in conflict. Critics consider "True West" to be Shepard's signature piece.

This is the story of two estranged brothers whose paths cross again at their mother's home in the California desert. Austin is house sitting for his mother while she is on vacation in Alaska and working on a screenplay that has caught the interest of a Hollywood producer. Lee, his older brother, a clear loser and petty thief drops in unexpectedly and quickly bullies his way into staying at the house. When the Hollywood producer visits Austin to talk about promoting his screenplay, Lee pushes his way into the situation and is soon pitching his own idea for a trashy western to the producer. Ultimately Lee steals Austin's big break and the sparks fly.

Four local actors portray the characters in this two-act play. Luke Smetters of Monroe plays Lee. Luke is a well-known face at MTG and in other community theatres in the area. Jamie Ertmer of Apple River, IL plays Austin and is making his MTG acting debut. He has been in several community theatre productions in Freeport. Phil Rath of Monroe is also a familiar face at MTG, he plays Saul Kimmer the movie producer. Jennie Lembach of Monroe is quickly becoming a popular addition to the MTG family, she portrays the mother.

Monroe Theatre Guild will present five performances of "True West", March 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 7PM and March 31 at 2PM at the MTG theatre. An Opening Night Reception will be held at 6:30PM Friday, March 22 in the MTG lobby.

An exciting new special feature will follow the March 30th performance with a question and answer session with the actors and director. This new feature will allow audience members to get to know the actors and talk about what it takes to be part of such an emotionally charged production. This play is recommended for adult audiences due to strong language.

Tickets are on sale now on the MTG website at www.monroetheatre.com and at the Monroe Arts Center box office Tuesdays - Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM. Ticket information is also available by calling 608-325-1111.

Written by the late Sam Shepard and directed by Monroe Theatre Guild Director Nick Hartwig - a hard hitting, emotionally charged dark comedy. Sam Shepard, best known for his acting career was also a skilled, award winning playwright. Shepard's plays often tell the story of families in conflict. Critics consider "True West" to be Shepard's signature piece. This is the story of two estranged brothers whose paths cross again at their mother's home in the California desert. Austin is house sitting for his mother while she is on vacation in Alaska and working on a screenplay that has caught the interest of a Hollywood producer. Lee, his older brother, a clear loser and petty thief drops in unexpectedly and quickly bullies his way into staying at the house. When the Hollywood producer visits Austin to talk about promoting his screenplay, Lee pushes his way into the situation and is soon pitching his own idea for a trashy western to the producer. Ultimately Lee steals Austin's big break and the sparks fly. Four local actors portray the characters in this two-act play. Luke Smetters of Monroe plays Lee. Luke is a well-known face at MTG and in other community theatres in the area. Jamie Ertmer of Apple River, IL plays Austin and is making his MTG acting debut.

Swiss Movie Night

Turner Hall of Monroe's 2019 Swiss Heritage Series will open its season with its annual Swiss Movie Night on Friday, March 29 at 7:30 pm in the Grand Hall. This year's film, Clara und das Geheimnis der Bären (Clara and the Secret of the Bears) was released in Switzerland in 2013 and garnered several film awards in various countries. Filmed in the Swiss canton of Graubünden and in Bavaria, Germany, 13-year-old Clara, who has a special sensitivity, connects with the spirit of a girl, Susanna, from two centuries earlier. Susanna warns Clara about a curse that falls on anyone who harms bears. Clara and her friend Thomas then find themselves in a dangerous adventure in an effort to restore the balance between humans and nature. The film is perhaps a commentary and lesson on Switzerland's 20th century eradication of bears from the Alps. After the last brown bear was shot and killed in 1904, wild bears did not exist in Switzerland throughout the rest of the century. Only since 2005 have bears begun to reappear in Switzerland, migrating from Italy. In 2016, a bear, from which the name Bern is derived, was spotted in canton Bern for the first time in 190 years. The 90-minute film, which is in German with English subtitles, is comparable to a G rating. Movie popcorn and beverages will be available, and a free-will donation will be accepted for the Swiss Heritage Series. The public is cordially welcome to attend. Turner Hall of Monroe is located at 1217 17th Avenue, and is handicapped-accessible. A trailer from the film may be viewed at http://TurnerHallofMonroe.org/clara.html

38th Annual Bloody Lake Rendezvous

Each year, a group of these living historians host an annual rendezvous event at the appropriately historic Black Hawk Memorial Park near Woodford, WI. The Yellowstone Flint and Cap club has been hosting an annual rendezvous there for over 30 years, now. They invite other historians to come and camp for the fellowship, the raw competition, for the fun of it. Some historians spend those cold winter months, setting by the fireplace, making enough crafts to use as trade goods for the supplies or items they will need in the coming year. The leather worker may make an apron the blacksmith can use in his work or the gun maker will create a beautifully, handcrafted rifle in hopes of trading it for a buffalo hide that will keep him warm. The women tat lace, sew shirts and skirts or trade recipes. Visit the pre-1840 encampment on Saturday and Sunday to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of life 200 years ago.

Schützenverein

Chris Pederson, a military historian for the United States Army, will give a fascinating presentation about Wisconsin Schützenverein - German/Swiss marksmanship societies. The public is cordially invited to attend this free event, which is part of Turner Hall's Swiss Heritage Series.
These traditional marksmanship societies, called Schützenverein, have close ties with the German and Swiss gymnast and singing groups. All these groups worked towards unifying Germany into a Constitutional Monarchy or Republic in the mid-1800s, but these bold marksmen and revolutionaries failed in their fight for freedom, with Prussia being the one to to unify Germany. Consequently, many members of these groups joined our republic, recreating these organizations and societies here in the United States.
Currently a resident of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Pederson grew up both on a farm near Cleghorn and in the city of Eau Claire. He received his bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse in 2003. Upon graduation Pederson was commissioned as an officer in the United States Army and shortly after was living in the German state of Hesse, and then Baden-Württemberg in the old center of the picturesque town of Heidelberg.

Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars

You are invited to spend the evening at Monroe Arts Center for the final Summer of Music concert. The concert is from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the south outdoor terrace (on corner of 11th Street and 14th Avenue) of Monroe Arts Center. The concert is FREE and open to the public. Madison's Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars will get listeners up and moving as they play West African blues, funk, and rhythm music. Tani Diakite is a musical force who has inspired an entire community of artists. With his Kamale n'goni, a West African ancestor to the banjo, and his plaintive singing, he never fails to drop the deepest blues around. The Kamale N'goni is a smaller, more popular version of this instrument. It is the centerpiece of a popular style of music from Mali called Wasulu Music. When you hear the blues played by Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars, you'll understand why it is often said that Mali is the birthplace of the blues. The Kamale N'goni is one of several African instruments that preceded the banjo, so you'll hear similarities to bluegrass music as well. A variety of beverages, including a selection of wines from Bailey's Run Vineyard and Winery, will be available for purchase before and during the concert. The concert will take place as scheduled rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will move indoors to the Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be presented in MAC's Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, August 30, 2019 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm Gallery Talk: 5:30 pm "Jack knife artist" Levi Fisher Ames was a Civil War soldier, musician and maker of musical instruments, carpenter, prolific wood-carver, and animated storyteller. Having acquired his wood-carving skills during the war, Ames hand-carved his own impressive menagerie of over 600 domestic, wild, and mythical animals. Each carving was encased in a glass-fronted, hinged shadow box. In the 1890s, Ames took a selection of his imaginative carved menagerie on a regional tent road show tour as the "L.F. Ames Museum of Art." He exhibited them at regional fairs as a comprehensive sideshow, believing they needed to be seen as an interrelated work and that his storytelling was a central component of the whole. He recounted both tall and truthful tales about his "specimens" to the delight of audiences, tapping into the popularity of the circuses and sideshows that were prevalent throughout Wisconsin. Ames's wooden beasts and bugs, carved from life and legend, outlived their creator and were passed down through Ames's family (with a brief stay at a pawnshop during the Great Depression) until 161 shadow boxes and forty other pieces that belonged to Ames were given to Kohler Foundation, Inc.

Sunday Concert Series at MAC

Pianist David Newman is listed in Who's Who Among American Keyboard Artists. He began playing piano at age 3 in his hometown of Rochester, New York. He made his New York City Lincoln Center debut in 1990 as a visiting Baldwin artist. Other notable appearances include solo recitals at London's Barbican Centre, Chicago's Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, as well as performances at numerous colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and abroad. His Monroe Arts Center performance will include Beethoven's Sonata in D Major, Op. 28 (Pastoral), and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. He has had the opportunity to play with many orchestras and chamber groups, performing Bach's Concerto in D Minor, Beethoven's Concerto in C Minor, the Liszt E Flat Concerto, Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 2 with the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra and, most recently, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue with the Beloit Janesville Symphony. His work in theater is also extensive. His audio recordings of Rachmaninoff were used in Steppenwolf Theater's production of Another Time, while the video recording was studied by Albert Finney, enabling him ot imitate David's style of playing on stage. Mr. Newman holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in piano performance from the State University of New York at Fredonia and Rutgers University, as well as the Concert Recital Diploma and the Advanced Solo Studies Diploma from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England.

Beth Nielsen Chapman

When you go to a Beth Nielsen Chapman concert get ready to laugh and cry and, well, just fasten your seat belt. One thing you can count on is one great song after another and some fascinating stories woven between them. This twice Grammy-nominated Nashville based singer-songwriter has released thirteen solo albums and penned seven #1 hits with songs recorded by Willie Nelson, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Bette Midler, Neil Diamond, Tanya Tucker, Emmylou Harris, Michael McDonald, Trisha Yearwood, Keb Mo', Roberta Flack, Waylon Jennings, Indigo Girls, and Faith Hill's mega-hit This Kiss, ASCAP'S 1999 Song Of The Year. Chapman's songs have been heard on television's ER, Dawson's Creek, Providence, and Felicity, and in movie soundtracks, including The Prince of Egypt, Message In A Bottle, The Rookie, Where The Heart Is, and Practical Magic. Her 2014 album Uncovered features legendary guests from Vince Gill to Duane Eddy. In 1997 her hit song Sand & Water, written in the wake of her husband's death, was performed by Elton John to honor the memory of Princess Diana. In 2016 she was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame. Last year brought the release of, Hearts Of Glass, a powerful collection of songs that dig deep into the place within us where vulnerability meets strength. This is a concert you will not want to miss.

"Jack knife artist" Levi Fisher Ames was a Civil War soldier, musician and maker of musical instruments, carpenter, prolific wood-carver, and animated storyteller. Having acquired his wood-carving skills during the war, Ames hand-carved his own impressive menagerie of over 600 domestic, wild, and mythical animals. Each carving was encased in a glass-fronted, hinged shadow box. In the 1890s, Ames took a selection of his imaginative carved menagerie on a regional tent road show tour as the "L.F. Ames Museum of Art." He exhibited them at regional fairs as a comprehensive sideshow, believing they needed to be seen as an interrelated work and that his storytelling was a central component of the whole. He recounted both tall and truthful tales about his "specimens" to the delight of audiences, tapping into the popularity of the circuses and sideshows that were prevalent throughout Wisconsin. Ames's wooden beasts and bugs, carved from life and legend, outlived their creator and were passed down through Ames's family (with a brief stay at a pawnshop during the Great Depression) until 161 shadow boxes and forty other pieces that belonged to Ames were given to Kohler Foundation, Inc.

Watercolor Mandala/Dreamcatchers at Hawk's Mill

The art of making mandalas is less about drawing and more about slowing down and opening up to your inner creative flow. You do not have to be an artist. All you need to make a mandala drawing is some simple everyday tools and a little instruction. In this class we will start by making several watercolor backgrounds using fun techniques. Then you will be instructed in the basic steps of a mandala. We will return to our watercolor backgrounds and learn our new skills to create mandalas and a fun twist on the project. Class includes all materials and instruction, 2 projects, and lots of relaxing fun.

What do you get when you combine all the smash hit music of the two great American classic rock bands BOSTON and Styx, into one power-packed show? The answer is David Victor formerly of BOSTON - "The Hits of Boston and Styx." Performing a blazing hot rock sound with four- and five-part harmonies, David Victor and his powerhouse band explode with a feel-good night of rock-and-roll hits featuring spotlight vocal performances of instantly recognizable hits like More Than A Feeling, Amanda, Come Sail Away, Lady, and many, many more.

The high-energy virtuoso playing, vocals, and showmanship of this band is unmatched when it comes to recreating these timeless songs, all the while embodying the spirit and energy of what made BOSTON and Styx two of the best-loved bands of the 70s and 80s.

Established in 2002 as a way to feature the new 39-rank, three-manual Berghaus pipe organ at the United Methodist Church of Monroe, the free half-hour mini-recitals are presented quarterly from 12:15 - 12:45 pm, each with a different theme.  The public is welcome to attend the free concert.

What's Funny After 50?

Get ready for a show that leaves baby boomers and the senior set rolling in the aisles. Aging happens to everybody, but when it happens to comic Dan St. Paul, it's hilarious. In this multi-media show, comedian Dan St. Paul shares his experiences about being middle-aged. After turning fifty, he discovered his body changing ("I'm a cylinder now. I can where a belt anywhere on my body.") So instead of moaning about it, he developed a show where he made fun of himself in order to bring laughter to others. Dan St. Paul has been a national headlining comedian at some of the top comedy clubs in the country, chronicling his life on stage for thirty years. He has appeared on NBC, ABC, FOX, Comedy Central, A & E, and VH-1. He has also opened for such celebrities as Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Ringo Starr, Natalie Cole, Hall and Oates, Vince Gill, Clint Black, and even the San Francisco Symphony.

Tom Waselchuk and Jami Lampkins, along with their ace band The Dang-Its, deliver an energetic and moving Christmas concert with a generous helping of Americana heart. Tinsel and Twang features seasonal standards and comedy numbers, songs by country legends Merle Haggard and Patsy Cline, Western Swing renditions of Irving Berlin and Frank Loesser hits, and Charlie Brown's Christmas theme with a bluegrass twist. It's a fun-filled, energetic holiday show that you won't want to miss.
