High School Matinees

During the 2014-2015 season, the UW-Whitewater Department of Theatre/Dance is offering a number of matinee performances for high schools.

Talk back sessions are scheduled at the conclusion of each performance, allowing your students to ask the cast, crew and designers questions about the production. Due to teaching and class schedules not all members may be available at the talk back session.

Please register your school early; seating is sometimes limited.

Questions? Contact the Theatre/Dance Office 262-472-1566 or email andersom@uww.edu

Come Back - Tuesday, October 7

A special matinee of Come Back, by Neil Haven (a UW-Whitewater Theatre/Dance Alumnus), will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 7, 2014, in Hicklin Studio Theatre.   Angela Iannone will direct this drama. 

  UW-Whitewater alumnus and playwright of Who Killed Santa?, Neil Haven, is back with his latest witty adventure, Come Back. Sky has been asked to do some pretty crazy things by Erin but nothing this crazy. After Erin's death, Sky is requested to go on a whirlwind journey from state to state to find Erin's final resting place. But if Sky refuses to go on this once in a lifetime journey a pretty hefty donation to the Nazi party in Sky's name will be the punishment. Throw in a lawyer, a distraught parent, and a grieving bird and you create an adventure like no other as the characters and audience explore what death is and where it lives. This production will feature two different casts, alternating roles each night for this non-gender specific play.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.  Space is limited since the production is in Hicklin Studio Theatre, so please register your school group early!

Clybourne Park - Tuesday, December 2

A special matinee of Clybourne Park, by Bruce Norris, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 2, 2014 in Barnett Theatre.  Jim Butchart will direct this drama. 

(Clybourne Park may contain language and situations that some people may find offensive.)   Act one takes place in 1959, Act two in 2009, fifty years apart but the concerns are still the same. This outrageously funny play shows what the effects of race and real estate can have on a community. The location, Clybourne Park, once made famous by Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun, makes a new appearance in Bruce Norris's acclaimed play Clybourne Park which won a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award for Best Play.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.     

The Furies - Tuesday, April 28

A special matinee of The Furies, by Aeschylus will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 28, 2015, in Barnett Theatre.   Angela Iannone will direct this classic Greek drama.

  The murder of a parent is one of the primal, unforgivable crimes and punishable by death and eternal torture by the oldest of the gods, The Furies. Considered the first courtroom drama, The Furies focuses on Orestes, the son of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. When Clytemnestra strikes down her husband Agamemnon in vengeance for his sacrifice of their daughter, the god Apollo demands that Orestes kill his mother. Orestes is caught between the wrath of the vengeful Furies and the new order of law proposed by Apollo, who demands that a trial take place in the sacred temple of Athena. Angela Iannone's new adaptation of The Furies by Greek dramatist Aeschylus will feature dance, pageantry and passion.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.
