UW-Whitewater hosts "Lumberjacks in Love" for summer laughs

July 15, 2013

"Lumberjacks in Love"

"Lumberjacks in Love" is the hilarious musical opening this week at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

The life of five lumberjacks is not an easy one. They don't bathe, don't want to get older, are afraid of women, and one of them is secretly a girl. And what happens when you throw in a mail-order bride? "Lumberjacks in Love," is the hilarious musical opening this week at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Directed by Jim Butchart, a theater professor, the musical is part of UW-Whitewater's Summeround theater program.

Student cast and crew members get keen insight and understanding of what it takes to put on a play. "The students design the costumes and the set," Butchart said. "It gives the students a chance to perform in a small setting and link with the audience."

The event will be performed at the Hicklin Studio Theater in the Greenhill Center of the Arts July 16-20 at 7:30 p.m., and July 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the Greenhill Center Box Office Monday-Friday 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. or by phone at 262-472-2222.

Tickets are $12 for the general public, $10 for people over the age of 65, $7.50 for those under the age of 18, and $4.50 to UW-Whitewater students with a valid ID.
