BRIGHTON — Wisconsin-based traveling theater company Summit Players Theatre is returning to live, outdoor performances and will be performing Shakespeare’s "The Winter's Tale" from June 12 to Aug. 22 in 24 different Wisconsin state parks.

The first show is at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12, at Bong State Recreation Area, 26313 Burlington Road. All free performances will be preceded by a 45-minute educational workshop with the Bong workshop beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The Winter's Tale" is like Shakespeare's take on a fairy tale — there's love, there's loss, there's magic and music.

The group’s educational workshop, “Inside Shakespeare's Story: The Winter's Tale,” is new this year and offered before every show. It serves as a way for the audience to get comfortable with the play, Shakespeare’s language and the way nature played into his works. Participants take part in Shakespeare games and exercises culminating in performing a short scene.

When Andrea Beaugrand-Jorgensen was diagnosed with colon cancer in February at the age of 39, there were things she did not have, like health insurance.

Working part-time, she did not have $800/month to buy into her employer’s benefits package.

However, as is typical of people who are genuine and kind, she was rich in people who loved her.

Beaugrand-Jorgensen’s friends and family did not want to just talk about supporting her, they wanted to do something really meaningful to ease her situation.

The first effort, a GoFundMe page, was launched in late February by Malacara and has raised about $23,000 to date, helping cover medical costs and also a trip for Beaugrand-Jorgensen to take to Disney World with her daughter.

And that was just the start of it.
