Isadoora Theatre Company Announces 2003 - 2004 Season

Ready to begin its second season as a community-based theatre company in Door County, Isadoora Theatre Company (ITC) announces a full and exciting line-up of performances including works by Sondheim, Mamet, Albee, and Ives.

The 2003-2004 season kicks off with English Zoo Flies. It is an exotic trilogy of one-act plays: English Made Simple by David Ives, Zoo Story by Edward Albee and Time Flies by David Ives. This production opens at Peninsula Art School, Fish Creek Oct 10 and 11 and then travels to Ephraim Village Hall Oct 12 and to Third Avenue Playhouse, Sturgeon Bay Oct 17-19.

ITC's season continues in 2004 with Stephen Sondheim's musical revue, Side by Side by Sondheim, in February.  Side by Side by Sondheim is a perfect Valentine's Day treat bringing favorite and memorable musical selections to the stage.  In May 2004, Isadoora presents David Mamet's much acclaimed Sexual Perversity in Chicago.  This early Mamet work will challenge ITC audiences with its exploration of the 1970s moral maze of American sexual liberation and gender controversy.  Wrapping up the 2003-2004 season on the weekend of Memorial Day, the ITC troupe will reprise their original work Living Up to Memorial Day.

Isadoora recently received a grant from the Peninsula Arts Association and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin to present English Zoo Flies.  With casting complete and rehearsals in full swing, that production will hit the stages in mid-October. In addition to producing the play, Isadoora is currently working on the other pieces of the puzzle such as playbill advertising and audience building.

"Something innovative that we are doing for our advertisers is giving them a chance to have a 'Live Ad' performed during the show. Last year we were very successful at putting these together and received an enormous response," said president Andrew Olson.  ITC designs and produces advertisements that are interspersed between acts of their show.  This type of advertisement often mixes humor with effective live information about the business.   "Another thing we are working on is spreading the word about Isadoora. Right now a lot of people don't know about our small theatre company, we are hoping to change that," continues Olson.  By announcing a full season of theatre, ITC leaps forward in spreading the word about the company and its mission.

The mission of Isadoora 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 Theatre is proud to be a community-based theatre mainstay in Door County. ITC pledges to be a vehicle that encourages the acceptance of diversity by performing works that promote thought and dialogue with its audience. ITC hopes to fulfill its mission by producing an annual season of theatre and offering workshops to community members.
