Local youth actors, actresses take part in Tomahawk Community Theater workshop, play

For the Tomahawk Leader

TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Community Theater offered its first Children’s Theater Workshop last month.

The workshop began on Monday, July 10 and culminated with a performance of the comedy play “The Fairy Tale Network” at VFW Post 2687 in Tomahawk on Friday, July 21.

A total of 11 aspiring actors and actresses in grades 3 through 8 participated in the workshop.

Pam Theiler Wise of the Tomahawk Community Theater explained that the “The Fairy Tale Network” focuses on a television network that needs to improve its viewership ratings with exciting new programming.

“The three mice, working as creative consultants for the studio, each must come up with a story idea to pitch to their new chief, the Cat, and they need to pitch their ideas fast before they become a fancy feast,” she said. “They retell the well-known tales of Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but now with new and unexpected twists.”

The show’s cast and crew are as follows: Everett Hau, Cat and BB Wolf; Tilly Van Asten, First Mouse and Goldilocks; Simon Campbell, Second Mouse and Wolf One; Jordy Kelly, Third Mouse; Amelie Lafleur, Little Yellow Riding Hood and Momma Bear; Micah Cerkas, Jimmy Links and Baby Bear; Noah Bixby, Dean Links and Stuffy Waiter; Elton Hau, Sausage Links and Poppa Bear; Haylee Korzinek, Mother Pig; Apollo Davis, Head Busy Bee and Adopted Wolf; Melah Freeman, Assistant Busy Bee; Terry Bucaro, Director; Kailey Cerny and Ella Hilgendorf, Student Directors; Pam Theiler Wise, Pat McLain and Kathy Rechsteiner, Director Assistants; Claudia Osero, Pat McLain, Michele Balda and the Tomahawk High School Drama Department, props and costumes; Jim Wise, set design and construction; John Ramsey, sound and light controller; and George Van Asten, piano player.

The Tomahawk Community Theater thanked play sponsors Jeannette Gregory, Mary Smith, Mary Lou Voermans and Joan Laabs, as well as Patty and Bob Soward from VFW Post 2687.
