UNION GROVE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO PRESENT ‘EXHIBIT THIS! THE MUSEUM OF COMEDIES’
UNION GROVE — The first production of the year “Exhibit This! The Museum of Comedies” by Luigi Jannuzzi will be presented at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday in the Performance Center at Union Grove High School, 3433 S. Colony Ave.
In addition to the normal evening performances, the students also will use a portion of this play as competition material at the Wisconsin High School Forensics Association One-Act Competition.
Imagine, if you will, that the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has come to life. The play is a series of fast-paced comedic scenes and monologues based on 50+ real-life exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Paintings, sculptures, antiquities and fertility gods will emerge from their molds and frames. In addition, attendees will see artists, guards, critics, lovers and curators come together for one very special and entertaining night at this museum.
In addition to the actual show, the pieces of art used will be up for silent auction each night. These are works that have been created by students in the Union Grove High School art department, and all proceeds for each painting will directly benefit Union Grove High School’s art department and International Thespian Society troupe 7878.
All tickets can be purchased at the door for $5.
HORLICK THEATER ARTS TO PRESENT CLASSIC ‘PRIDE AND PREJUDICE’
RACINE — Horlick High School Theater Arts students will present the literary classic “Pride and Prejudice” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Nov. 22-23 in the Joseph L. Mooney Theater at Horlick High School, 2119 Rapids Drive.
Fulfilling and capturing the beloved book in a beautiful stage production, “Pride and Prejudice” is delightful and romantic fun. It transports the audiences to Jane Austen’s world of proper manners, determined bachelors, nosy neighbors and embarrassing relatives. Mrs. Bennet is desperate. With no sons, she is determined to arrange profitable marriages for her five daughters. When two eligible men arrive in the neighborhood, excitement and passion begin to rule.
Admission is $7 for adults; $5 for seniors and students. This venue is fully wheelchair accessible.
OBSERVATORY DEDICATED TO HONOR FORMER TEACHER JEROME STUEBER
MUSKEGO — The observatory at Muskego High School will be dedicated in honor of Jerome ‘Jerry’ Stueber at 6:15 p.m. Monday in the library at Muskego High School, W183 S8750 Racine Ave., Muskego.
Stueber was a faculty member at Muskego High School from 1957 until his retirement in 1990. He taught a number of science courses including general science, environmental science, chemistry, geology and astronomy. He was the chairperson of the school’s science department. In 1978, he was named “Wisconsin’s Teacher of the Year.”
Among his many accomplishments was securing funding and directing construction of the school’s observatory. The observatory was used extensively by astronomy students, the school’s astronomy club, other students, faculty and members of the community.
In addition to his teaching responsibilities and work with the astronomy club, Stueber was engaged in numerous other school and community activities. He was a talented photographer and organized a photography club at the school. The photo staff that he assembled provided pictures for the school’s newsletters and yearbook. For many years, Stueber filmed football games, basketball games and wrestling matches for the school’s athletic coaches. He taught night classes in photography at what was then the Waukesha County Technical Institute and was the president of the Muskego Creative Photography Guild.
Stueber and his wife, Marge, organized a group of community volunteers which led to Muskego’s affiliation with the American Field Service. Stueber and his wife were co-vice presidents of the Friends of the Muskego Library.
All members of the public are invited to attend the dedication ceremony.
