These Shining Lives revolves around the real-life circumstances of women in the 1920s who worked in a watch factory painting watch faces with glowing radium-rich paint. While the characters and company in These Shining Lives are fictitious, the story of the Radium Girls and the toxic and deadly levels of radium poisoning of over 4,000 factory workers is true. The real-life Radium Girls took their company to court and achieved a long-lasting victory over corporations with poor workplace conditions and worker’s compensation that is still in effect today.

LUMBERJACKS IN LOVE | SEP 9–25, 2022

Book and Lyrics by Fred Alley, Music by James Kaplan
Directed by Scott Ford
Music Directed by Michelle Rademacher
Choreographed by John Hegge

It's 1912 and lumberjacks Minnesota Slim, Muskrat, Dirty Bob, Moonlight, and The Kid live in a state of manly bliss at Haywire Lumber Camp in northern Wisconsin, 200 miles from the nearest woman. Entertainment is found through rejoicing (or complaining) about their bachelor status, taking weekly baths, and practicing their social dancing. However, when Slim accidentally orders himself a mail-order bride named Rose, their simple, shanty lives are turned upside down. Rose's arrival pushes the camp further into chaos, and soon every single lumberjack has to come to terms with what they really want and who they truly are. LUMBERJACKS IN LOVE is a hilarious, heart-warming musical romp through the North Woods that reminds us sometimes the best thing to do is “axe.”

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures. The soundtrack recording reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).” With a screenplay and lyrics by Oscar winner Dean Pitchford, the story focused on young people, much like his previous, and wildly successful movie musical Fame.
