Dinner theater interpretation of an Irish wake, 6:30 pm, 3/17, Baraboo Country Club. $38 benefits Baraboo Theatre Guild. 608-622-7283
This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY Fundraiser for Baraboo Theatre Guild! Join the villagers of the beautiful fictional village of Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and mourn the passing of one of their own, Flanagan. You'll be transported to the Emerald Isle to grieve as only the Irish can. Once you have arrived in Grapplin, you'll pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to poor grieving fiancee, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo's best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a weaver of tales. You can cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory's parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn't cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O'Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat).
Dinner 6:30 and show at 7:30
