History meets fiction with Hysterical (Historical) Players of Green Bay. Performers of Let Me Be Frank Productions present local history of Northeastern Wisconsin with musical parodies of the times and hysterical family comedy. There is always a little history and a lot of fiction in these all-original shows written by Frank Hermans. Music in all shows is either original pieces or taken from genres of decades past.
This summer, a 3-show season will be presented at Heritage Hill State Park. All shows take place at 1 pm in the Moravian Church at Heritage Hill. Entrance will be through the Education Center; however, the performance will take place a short walk down the hill in the Moravian Church.

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. Tickets for this show can be found by following this link.
Sunday, July 17, 2022, at 1 pm — “The Death of Al/Alice Capone”
It’s a comedy/mystery/musical set in Green Bay in the 1930s. Al Capone takes a little getaway 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. Is it a who-dun-it…could it be you?

Sunday, August 14, 2022, at 1 pm — “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 sawmill in Indian Territory. All original songs from Frank Hermans.
