The Village Players

Miracle on 34th Street

The Mukwonago Village Players are proud to be producing Miracle on 34th Street for its Christmas show.

The holiday season is in full swing when a cultured gentlemen with twinkling eyes, ample belly, and a snowy beard is hired as Macy’s department store Santa. He claims his name is Kris Kringle, and soon fills everyone with Christmas spirit – except for his boss, Doris Walker, who’s raising her daughter Susan to not believe in Santa. When Kris is declared insane and put on trial, everyone’s faith is put to the test as old and young alike face the age old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus?

Breaking Legs

The Mukwonago Village Players are proud to announce our next show – “Breaking Legs”!

NOTE: This is a comedy that is intended for an adult audience.

The action occurs in an Italian restaurant owned by a successful mobster and managed by his beautiful unmarried daughter. When the daughter’s former college professor arrives to ask for financial backing for a play he’s written about a murder, the fun begins. The three main Mafiosi’s are intrigued with the idea of producing a play. The daughter becomes enamored of the playwright, who is delighted to have the family’s support. His bubble is burst when he discovers, through the accidental “death by train” of a lesser thug, that his backers ARE gangsters. Within this madcap situation, murder and menace are served with plenty of pasta and laughter. (Adult themes)

White Christmas!

Mukwonago Village Players are proud to announce their production of Irving Berlin’s beloved musical “White Christmas”. Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is a delightful musical based on the 1954 smash hit movie of the same name. It tells the story of two army buddies, Bob and Phil, who put together a successful song and dance routine after World War II. With romance in mind, they follow two beautiful singing sisters to their Christmas gig at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by the men’s former Army commander. The men soon realize they are the only guests at the resort because there is no snow! In order to help the General out, they come up with a scheme to bring in a crowd. They convince the General that they’ve decided to stage their newest Broadway revue at his lodge, but secretly make a special television appeal to all their Army pals to show up on Christmas Eve. The show features classic Irving Berlin hits such as “Blue Skies”, “Sisters,” “Happy Holiday,” “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “I Love a Piano” and of course, the unforgettable title song, “White Christmas”.

The performances will be at:
