Signs of spring can be found all over Wisconsin these days. Trees are sprouting leaves, tulips are preparing to bloom, and cars are being swallowed whole by potholes all over the state. Another indicator of more pleasant weather comes Monday when tickets for the summer season at American Players Theater go on sale to the general public.
The venue outside Spring Green, Wisconsin, is billed as the second largest outdoor theater in the country, welcoming over 100,000 visitors for performances from June through November each year.
Nine traditional plays from different eras will be performed over the course of their season. It’s a great opportunity to see what you remember from the classics you read in high school, like Romeo and Juliet, the story of two young lovers who go on a multi-state crime spree during the Great Depression before dying side by side in a hail of gunfire. Or something like that.
The outdoor amphitheater is situated on 100 acres of hilly woods and meadows, so even if you’re more of a jock who isn’t really into plays and stuff, you can still enjoy some time in the beauty of nature while scoring points with somebody you love.
