C.........attends the American Players Theater

In the beautiful, southwestern rolling hills of Wisconsin near Spring Green, lies an amazing theater. At an outdoor venue, off in the woods, the American Players Theater, a stellar repertory group, presents classic plays during the summer months. Camille, my daughter, son-in-law, David and I had the great pleasure of seeing "Ah Wilderness!", the only comedy written by Eugene O'Neill, at the theater on the evening of July 11. We have been in a terrible rainy season here in Wisconsin and we were concerned that it would be rained out, but after a brief but severe thunderstorm, the skies cleared, and we walked up the long hill, through the deep woods to find our seats. Ushers passed out paper towels and the audience cheerfully wiped off the seats and settled in to a most delightful production. The talent of this troupe never ceases to astound me and this was certainly up to our expectations, and more! You can see Camille with my program and ticket, and overlooking the set before the play began. Perhaps she'll accompany us again next year!
