The PHS Theater Department Brings The House Down in Laughing Stock By Charles Morey. PEWAUKEE, WI, November 1, 2018 – This fall, the Pewaukee High School Drama Department is proud to present their production of Laughing Stock. Come to visit our charming New England Barn were our shows will make you laugh until you cry. There is no better way to spend the night than watching the process of putting one three shows in rotating rep from setting the season to closing night, where things will go right and hilariously wrong. As they build a show they also build a close-knit family that cares for each other and grow together. We hope you join the Cast, Crew, and Directors for a wonderful evening of entertainment and delight. Laughing Stock tells the story of a small struggling theater working to get through the year putting on three shows in rotating rep, Charley’s Aunt, Dracul Prince of the Undead, and Lear ... ummm ... nevermind they are doing three shows Charley’s Aunt, Dracul Prince of the Undead and Hamlet? (what do you mean Hamlet?) okay, it’s now Hamlet. Our artistic director Gordon Paige (Anthony Desidero) and guest director Susanaha Huntsman (Lila Kothari) put together a tight talented group of actors. Some old members of the Playhouse like Daisy (Natalie Picard), Richfield (Jamie Davis), and Tyler (Gavin Long) and new actors like Mary (Molly Bogie), Victoria (Katie Bogie) and Jack (Benjamin Buhager). This group of actors rehearses these there shows for months and at the end of a long season or rehearsal they put them all on without a hitch, well maybe a few hitches ... ok there were some major catastrophes involved but through some morphing and cantaloupes it all eventually worked out. From the bright eye new members of the playhouse our interns Ashley (Lily Keller), Sydney (Lenna Angle), Karma (Izzy Fowler), and Carol no wait for Cheryl (Heather Sunderlage) to our awesome staff Cassidy (Meg Berice) and Helen (Megan Wallenfang). This family will make you laugh to no end as they perform their story.
