Isadoora Announces 2004-2005 Season of Theatre

Embarking into its third season, Isadoora Theatre Company announces a full slate of exciting theatrical performances.  The 2004-2005 line up of shows includes Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You and The Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang, The Foreigner by Larry Shue, The Laramie Project By Moises Kaufman, and Living Up to Memorial Day and original Isadoora production.

Isadoora kicks off its third season with Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You and The Actor's Nightmare.  Mark Moede of Theatre M will direct the show. The two one-acts by Christopher Durang are designed for double casting.   Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You is a parody of religious dogma taught in a typical Catholic classroom.   The Actor's Nightmare is a hilarious spoof following the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. The show will open on Oct 13 and run through Oct 17 at Andre's Supper Club of Sturgeon Bay and then continue the next two weekends, Oct 22-Oct 31 at the Fish Creek Village Hall and Third Avenue Playhouse.

The Isadoora season will continue in February with a familiar favorite, The Foreigner, directed by Peter Daniels.  The Foreigner, a winner of two Obie awards, will run from Feb 11 through Feb 20 at the Ephraim Town Hall and at Third Avenue Playhouse. The play demonstrates what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English.

The Laramie Project will be directed by Spencer Milligan and will open May 6 and run through May 22.  The production will appear at the Ephraim Town Hall and at Third Avenue Playhouse.  The Laramie Project is the acclaimed and moving story of Matthew Shephard, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming who was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming.  It is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink, and the heights of compassion we are also capable of.

Isadoora will close its 2004-2005 season with Living Up To Memorial Day, an original work, on May 27.  The annual production pays tribute to the sacrifices of war and honors lives lost.

"Isadoora is proud to be announcing its third season with a full roster of works, directors, and venues," said Artistic Director Ben Meyer.  "We continue to bring a wide array of shows to Door County as a year-round theatre company," he continued. Isadoora will also continue to design and produce "live-ads" that are interspersed between acts of their show.  This type of advertisement often mixes humor with effective live information about the business.

The mission of Isadoora Theatre Company, a Door County community theatre company, is to celebrate theatre through its basic elements of movement, music, story and thought. Isadoora Theatre seeks to educate the community by providing theatrical experiences of intellectual integrity fulfilled by open self-examination and artistic risk.   Isadoora hopes to fulfill its mission by producing an annual season of theatre and offering workshops to community members.
