A Three-Hour Tour? LMBFs Set Sail for Washington Island
First Financial and Diamonds and Gold present Let Me Be Franks all-new comedy musical “Frank’s Washington Island.” Have you ever taken the ferry to Washington Island? Ever have a shot of bitters at Nelsen’s Hall? If not, we are taking you on a three-hour tour of Washington Island. The Niagara Escarpment created Death’s Door and the magical Plum, Detroit, Hog, Pilot and Rock Islands. Well, our three-hour tour gets caught in huge storm and runs around on the uninhabited side of Washington Island (Is there one? Well, we made one up). Will the cast get off the island with the help of a Jet Pack, or the help of the Mosquito’s (The band not the bug)? Come see the shenanigans of the cast and crew of the SS Minnow as they try and escape a gruesome fate upon Frank’s Washington Island. Sure, the professor who can make batteries last forever in their radio but can’t fix a hole in the boat!
Castaways include: The Skipper (Pat Hibbard), Gilligan (Michael O’Malley), Ginger (Amy Riemer), Mary Ann (Amelie Eiding), The Professor (Frank Hermans), Thurston Howell (Tom Verbrick) and Mrs. Howell (Millie Haushaulter).
The show runs Sept. 22 through Oct. 14 at the historic Meyer Theatre in Green Bay, Wis. Shows are Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. with an additional matinee at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 14. An encore presentation will be held at the Capitol Civic Centre in Manitowoc, Wis., on Wednesday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m.
