Welcome TO American Folklore Theatre Ahoy, and welcome to AFT’s 2013 Season! We are so pleased that you’ve joined us for another year of original musical theater. All three summer shows, set between 1876 and the present, have Lake Michigan and Green Bay in common. From courageous merchant sailors on Lake Michigan to women shipbuilders in Sturgeon Bay to local fishing guides on Green Bay, our trio of musicals celebrates the rich maritime culture that pervades Door County. Loose Lips, which premiered in 2001, returns as a tribute to America’s Greatest Generation, focusing on the women who took over in the shipyards in Sturgeon Bay when the men were called to defend us overseas. Muskie Love, commissioned in 2004, is a loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, with competing fishing guides carrying out the hijinks. Our world premiere this season, Windjammers, was done in partnership with the Academy for New Musical Theatre. The project began in 2008 with an idea for a revue of Great Lakes folk material and has since morphed into a compelling story of life on a schooner with fully realized characters. This five-year transformation happened through the New Works process at both AFT and ANMT, funded largely by the Fred Alley New Musical Fund. There are certain AFT shows that light a fuse and are immediately launched into the canon of favorites. Victory Farm, which premiered last summer, certainly rocketed into that category. This lovely, funny show will be presented in the Door County Auditorium as our fall offering. We’re pleased to offer this quartet of musicals and grateful for your attendance. Enjoy the show! Jeffrey Herbst Dave Maier Artistic Director Managing Director

Greetings

from the Chairperson of the Board

We’re delighted you’re joining us for AFT’s 2013 Season! Whether you’re a first-timer or you’ve seen all 48 shows AFT has presented in the past twenty-three years, we promise you’ll enjoy tonight’s performance. The Door County Visitor’s Bureau recently released a report regarding tourism in Door County. Not surprisingly one of the top reasons people come here to vacation has to do with Door County’s natural beauty. Water, trees, rocks, sky. They have all shaped the history of the county through shipbuilding, the lumber industry, the geology of the escarpment and the nights that allow us to see the stars. This year these elements play a key role in the plays that we are producing. AFT tells stories celebrating our Wisconsin heritage – sailing, fishing, cherry growing – stories of growth, love, loss, redemption. All nurtured and impacted by the beauty and resources of Door County, land and water. Thank you for joining us tonight; we hope you will return to Door County for many years to come to enjoy the peninsula’s natural beauty and the stories that you will find here.

Fred Alley (AFT co-founder, writer) collaborated on over 20 original shows at AFT. He wrote the book and lyrics for Lumberjacks in Love and Fishing for the Moon, and was a contributor to Bone Dance. Fred also wrote perennial AFT favorites Guys on Ice and The Bachelors with composer James Kaplan. Fred’s work has been celebrated throughout the country and in particular at both Madison and Milwaukee Repertory Theatres.

Windjammers Book by Robin Share

Music by Clay Zambo

Lyrics by Robin Share & Clay Zambo

Every ship has a story. Men wrap their lives about it, and women their loves, and in so doing it makes fiction appear dull in comparison. Dana Thomas Bowen, Lore of the Lakes, 1940 From the end of the Civil War to the turn of the century, thousands of ships crisscrossed the Great Lakes, bearing their cargoes of wheat, lumber, coal and iron ore from port to port. In fact, Great Lakes shipping enabled the rapid industrialization of the United States, as half of all freight that moved across the country was transported via the inland seas. Later, hulking steam-powered freighters would dominate, but during the golden age of Great Lakes sailing when our story takes place – 1860-1890 – the sturdy wooden schooners, built from northern white pine by master shipbuilders from Oswego to Manitowoc, were the stars of the lakes. Powered by wind, sails and muscle, these were the Great Lakes windjammers. Like our Captain Jackie, many sailors on the freshwater lakes had been born to that life. Sailing families passed on the knowledge father to son, uncle to brother. These “freshies” knew where the shoal beds and rocky coastlines were, how to read weather signs and harbor lights. They knew too well what perils they faced. (Current estimates number ships at the bottom of the Great Lakes at seven thousand - over three thousand in Lake Michigan alone. And the number of lives lost in the lakes is calculated at over 30,000.) So when a greenhorn joined the crew, like our young ship’s boy Boyo does for 1876 season, the freshies quickly teach him the ropes – and put him in his place. Being a competent Great Lakes sailor was not simply a matter of pride – it was a matter of keeping yourself and your shipmates alive. Greater than concerns over threatening storms or dreadful living conditions was the sailor’s melancholy. While on water, a bond grew as sailors toiled together, sharing knowledge, humor and lore. Thus, our Boyo – with the help of Nathaniel’s good-natured spirit – grows up before the mast. But for many, the ache for loved ones left behind – like Boyo’s Ma or our Edwina and Nancy left back on shore – was ever-present. And others, like our Fred, find themselves adrift and unmoored, even on shore. In the end, the story of Windjammers is the story of a life so powerful and so compelling that despite the dangers and loneliness, these sailors returned to their Windjammers season after season, sailing our nation into a new century. And sailing into our hearts a little too.

Loose Lips Sink Ships Book & Lyrics by

Jacinda Duffin & Laurie Flanigan

Music by

James Kaplan

We stared work on Loose Lips Sink Ships in 1998 over a card game in a Milwaukee hotel room. The original inspiration—an “E for Effort” pin that Laurie’s grandfather earned in a Beloit foundry during the war—sparked a brainstorming session, and from that moment on, the idea grabbed hold and wouldn’t let go. Fast-forward to our fourth AFT production, and the initial excitement is still there, with our wonderful director and an all-new cast, new orchestrations, and a new audience of kids, parents, and grandparents to fall in love with our story. We have always been grateful to the legions of people who helped us in the researching of this piece. When we set out to write this show, we put the word out that we wanted to do first-person interviews with people who lived through the era or worked in the shipyards. We were blessed with an abundance of riches, and we once again offer our thanks to the people we spoke to in the writing of this piece, some of whom are no longer with us: Murial Anderson, Anne and Paul Brown, Kerm Cannon, Nancy Davis, Marguerite and Tom Flanigan, Anne Hauser, Emily Hickey, George and Barbara Larson, Agnes and Ted Kubicz, Gretchen and John Maring, Dottie and Eddie Mancheski, Dorothy Mosgaller, Ellsworth Peterson, Fred Poor, Mary Louise Poor, The Rusty Hinges Swimming Class, Marion and Roger Schuster, Eunice Schlintz, Elsie Tischler, and Marguerite Zak. Truth is stranger than fiction. Chicken in the mail? True story. No Work, No Woo? Straight out of the Leatham D. Smith Shipyard newspaper, which we found on microfiche (Google it) in the Laurie Room at the Sturgeon Bay Library. And yes, there really was a Roxie Tachovsky. She taught high school English and Drama at Gibraltar High School, and is remembered fondly by her students. She never worked in the shipyards, and her story line is pure fiction, but because she loved theatre, her family thought it a fitting tribute for us to name a character after her. With our deep affection and gratitude, we offer this whole production as a tribute to those who served in WWII, both in the service and on the home front. The Sturgeon Bay shipyards were some of the most important shipyards in the nation during WWII. If you want to know more about the important role Sturgeon Bay played in the national war effort, the Door County Maritime Museum is a great place to go. And please, if you have a grandparent or a friend who lived through challenging times, ask them about their experiences. Almost every interview we conducted began with our subject saying something to the effect of, “Oh, I don’t have much to tell you…” and ended several hours later with laughter and tears. It is important to ask questions, to remember, and to honor those memories with your listening. Who knows—you might be inspired to write something yourself. Enjoy the show! Jacinda Duffin, Laurie Flanigan Hegge, and James Kaplan

Muskie Love

Music by

Book & Lyrics by

Paul Libman

Dave Hudson

When I started writing my first show for AFT, I read about a woman named Lynn Frederick who was a fishing guide in Door County. As I started pondering the obstacles she might have faced, entering a mostly male-dominated profession, I envisioned this strong, independent woman who might have a nemesis in the form of a male fishing guide. The more I sketched at the initial ideas, the more I realized that Shakespeare had already written the story I wanted to tell - and so I took the general story of Much Ado About Nothing and started adapting it into Muskie Love. Shortly thereafter, I was happily connected with Paul Libman and we had a great time writing the show together. We are now working on our 7th musical, but Muskie Love still holds a place in our hearts as our first professional production and we are always delighted to revisit Ben, Bea, and the rest on the wonderful outdoor stage of AFT. - Dave Hudson

Head Carpenter STEWART DAWSON Once again, I am astounded beyond any semblance of belief that AFT has asked me back again this summer to be their Resident (albeit, innocent) Bystander. Although this is a talent that I have become very good at over the years, and is an indispensible position, it is always a privilege and an honor to feel personally wanted and needed. In my copious amounts of spare time, I am developing my writing skills and hope that someday soon you all will be able to say, “Yeah, I read that...” Have a great time tonight and have a wonderful summer!

Holly Feldman

Holly has been camping in Peninsula State Park watching performances on the AFT stage since as far back as she can remember and yet, she still occasionally gets lost on her way to the theater. It can’t be helped. She likes to wander. Holly began her career working as the Marketing Director of American Folklore Theatre more than 10 years ago. Though she spent some time away adding her own three children, Georgia, Elliott, and Scout, to the newest generation of AFT fans, she has always known that her wandering path would lead her back to the place that holds her favorite childhood memories. In addition to her behind-the-scene contributions, Holly has also been seen singing on stage with Doc Heide, Jimmy Kaplan, Craig Konowalski and Eric Lewis. She also recently picked up the guitar, which she lovingly named Gertie.

Carol Heil

Carol recalls her first trip to Door County in 1989. Taken by the natural beauty and outdoor and cultural opportunities, she dreamt of living here one day. In 2011, Carol and her husband, Richard, made that dream a reality, moving into their “rightsized,” sustainably built home in Ellison Bay. Initially, Carol enjoyed AFT as a show patron, then as a volunteer, and now as a box office representative, “While still having fun as an AFT volunteer,” she stresses. When the stage lights go out and Door County’s enters the quiet season, Carol enjoys weaving, hiking and snowshoeing, and visiting sons who live in Virginia and Oregon. “We always look forward to family time in Door County, though. Nothing else compares.”

Victory Farm is a story with roots deep in the soil of a Door County cherry orchard. It’s 1944. With a war raging overseas and a labor shortage on the homefront, Edna and her daughter Dottie aren’t sure how their farm will make it through – until help arrives in the most unexpected way. Written with humor and tenderness, Victory Farm is an uplifting tale of family, forgiveness, and the fruits of our labor. World Premiere: Summer 2012 “Top Ten List” - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Victory Farm Book & Lyrics by

Music & Orchestrations by

James Valcq

In the early 1940s, Door County residents built their lives around the close ties of their small communities, the bountiful fish in Lake Michigan, and the cherry trees they planted in the region’s rocky soil. When World War II began to rage in Europe, the county’s delicate economic balance was threatened: between the large number of Americans fighting overseas and nationwide rations on rubber and gasoline (which prevented migrant farm workers from traveling north), Door County faced a severe labor shortage, especially in harvesting the peninsula’s annual cherry crop. As a result, many Door County cherry growers made a daring, unlikely choice: they participated in a government program that assigned German prisoners of war to work on farms throughout the United States. All told, about 370,000 German POWs came to the US between 1943 and 1946, including about 2,000 who came to Door County. At many of the farms where they worked, the POWs literally saved the cherry harvest, but this was not their most lasting legacy. Though their relationship could easily have been antagonistic, many of the POWs and American farm families found common ground with one another. Especially in Wisconsin, where German ancestry was particularly prevalent, local farmers often ate the same foods, knew the same songs, and, in some cases, even spoke the same language as the POWs. The Germans assigned to farms were not Nazi sympathizers (separate high-security camps were reserved for them) but men who were drafted or otherwise caught up in the war, many of them against their will. In Door County, just like so many visitors before and after them, the Germans took comfort in the beauty of the lake and the kindness of the people, even as they were so far from home. Now, almost seventy years later, we once again find ourselves in a time when the actions of a violent few have made us suspicious of people who look and sound different from us. Perhaps we can all take a lesson from the characters in Victory Farm, who make an effort to see beyond barriers and treat one another, as we all should, as fellow human beings.

Volunteers of American Folklore Theatre Do you love theatre? Do you love the outdoors? Do you enjoy sharing that experience with others? If your answers are “YES”, then we have the perfect opportunity for you! AFT offers many different ways to get involved with the theatre experience – in addition to ushering, selling concessions, guiding parking and assisting our disabled guests, there are opportunities to help with poster and rack card distribution, assisting with bulk mailings, preparing the amphitheater in Peninsula State Park so it is ready for the summer season, and assisting with the many special events that AFT has planned for this summer. Volunteers can choose what job they would like to do and their hours – no matter what you enjoy doing and when you enjoy doing it, there is a task for everyone. If this sounds interesting, we’d love to hear from you. No experience is necessary – just a willingness to help and a desire to be part of something original in Door County. Please call Ann Birnschein, AFT’s Volunteer Coordinator, at the AFT Office, (920) 854-6117 ext. 101 or e-mail the office at volunteer@folkloretheatre.com.
