Madam Mirabella's Improv-Comedy-Murder Mystery

Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 South High Street, Chippewa Falls, WI 54729
Are the dead walking among us in Chippewa Falls? What has been causing the flickering lights, rattling windows and randomly flushing toilets at Heyde Center for the Arts? Who is the restless soul who wanders the halls unseen moaning ghostly songs? Must this spirit INSIST on only singing show-tunes, especially ones from Annie Get Your Gun over and over again - always just a little off-key until everyone has been driven completely batty? Seriously, it has GOT to stop or there is going to be heck to pay. With your help, silly psychic Madam Mirabella will answer these questions and more in a family-friendly, frighteningly funny and interactive night you'll never forget. Be ready to laugh, but beware...you just may be tickled...TO DEATH!

Out of the Current by The Swampers

Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 South High Street, Chippewa Falls, WI 54729
William F. Kirk (1877-1927) was an internationally loved poet, humorist, syndicated columnist and baseball writer who grew up in Chippewa Falls. He began his career at the Chippewa Herald and Milwaukee Sentinel, then moved to New York City as a writer for William Randolph Hearst. In his later years, he moved back to Chippewa Falls to live among friends in the community he loved. He is perhaps best remembered for his lumberjack poems in Scandinavian dialect. Jerry Way has selected a variety of poems from Kirk's published books to set to music "Swampgrass" style. The Swampers are proud to celebrate Pure Water Days 2014 with stories, songs, and projected visuals commemorating the life and times of William F. Kirk, the "Poet Laureate of Chippewa Falls."
