“The Wake of Johnny Blood”
Johnny Blood was a polarizing figure of Green Bay Packer lore. We take you back to a train ride to Los Angeles in 1929. When one of his gal-pals parked on the railroad track so Blood wouldn’t miss the train, is Johnny dead, or just dead drunk? Curly does a quickie funeral to get back on the track. Music from the 1950s.

“The Life of Ebenezer Childs”
Ebenezer Childs was one of our forefathers of La Baye, or Green Bay. He loved to tell everyone of his many accomplishments even if they weren’t true, but these were! He made the first ox yoke for plowing in the territory, built a store for Daniel Whitney, was the first plaintiff to win a trial in Wisconsin, built
the first road east of Green Bay to Kaukauna, built the first frame house in Wisconsin for Judge Doty and built the first saw mill in Indian Territory. All original songs from Frank Hermans.

It’s a comedy/mystery/musical set in Green Bay in the 1930s. Al Capone takes a little get away on the Chicago Northwestern railroad to the Northland Hotel. Unbeknownst to Al, three other gangsters are on the same train; John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, the insignificant character and Elliot Ness. It’s a who-dun-it…could it be you?
