Abrams theater announces 20th season

Theater trying to increase sponsors to raise $30K for roof renovation project

Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. will present two musicals and an original comedy in its 20th anniversary season.

The ASPI season opens with the musical “Gypsy” March 16-19 and March 23-26. “Gypsy” is the tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success, while secretly yearning for her own. Tickets are on sale now at www.abramstheater.com or by calling the box office, 920-826-5852.

ASPI also seeks volunteers to construct sets, sew costumes, work backstage and fulfill other roles. To volunteer, contact the box office.

“Lustful Youth,” a two-act comedy written by Mike Eserkaln, will be performed June 8-11 and June 15-18. A fast-paced farce, “Lustful Youth” tells the story of a television statistician who is contractually obligated to write an evening soap opera. With the help of his muse, he pieces together an out-of-control romp known as “Lustful Youth.” Eserkaln, the artistic director of Comedy City in De Pere, is an ASPI performer and director.

In the final show of 2023, youth will be the featured performers in the musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr.,” scheduled Nov. 30, Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 7-10. The show takes the audience on a fantastic musical adventure with a magical car.

Season tickets for the 2023 shows are now available at www.abramstheater.com or 920-826-5852. All performances take place at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St. Abrams.

ASPI has an exciting goal for its 20th season. By the end of 2023, ASPI seeks to obtain 100 new Spotlight Sponsors: Silver ($100), Gold ($250), Platinum ($500), or Corporate ($950 per show). With the help of its sponsors, the theater hopes to raise over $30,000 for a new roof for its facility, a 100-year-old former church.

All sponsors receive early access to tickets and recognition in show programs. Gold and Platinum sponsors receive two or four tickets, respectively, to each show. To become a Spotlight Sponsor with a tax-deductible donation, visit www.abramstheater.com and click “Support.”
