Emmetsburg Main Street Theatre Escanaba in da Moonlight Opens Friday
Escanaba in da Moonlight opens Friday, March 23, on the Emmetsburg Main Street Theatre stage.
The show is a comedy about hunting — deer hunting — on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The Soady men and their friend, the Jimmer, gather on the eve of opening day of deer season. Reuben has yet to shoot his first buck and is perilously close to becoming “the oldest Soady, in the history of Soady’s never to bag a buck.”
Is Reuben just a bad shot, unlucky or cursed?
Cast members include Remnar Soady (Kirk Haack), Albert Soady (Brent McAllister), and Reuben Soady (Brian Garrels) and their friend the Jimmer (Rich Hall). Ron Eichmeier plays the part of DNR ranger, Tom Treado; and Mary Moser plays Reuben’s wife, Wolf Moon Dance. Jackie VanOosbree is the director.
All seats are reserved for this Main Street comedy. Curtain is 8 p.m. for Friday and Saturday shows; 2 p.m. for matinees.
