3 REASONS TO GIVE A GIFT OF THEATRE
- A “theatre experience” gift can be custom-tailored to your friend or family member: Do they love comedy and/or airplanes? Give a couple of tickets to BOEING-BOEING and throw in a trip to the EAA museum in Oshkosh. Are they always up for a mystery? Take them to see DEATHTRAP and add in a trip to browse a local bookstore or the library together. If they always have a song in their heart, then the upbeat, fun-filled BYE BYE BIRDIE is just the ticket, and maybe a stop at the malt shop on the way home.
- You support the ARTS and ARTISTS right here in the Fox Cities.
- The memories of spending time together will last a lifetime.
- See ALL THREE SHOWS for the low season ticket price of only $46.50!
- Single tickets gift certificates are also available.
- The prices are $16 for BOEING-BOEING or DEATHTRAP and $18 for BYE BYE BIRDIE.

Announcing our 2014 Summer Season!
Boeing-Boeing - June 20-28
by Marc Camoletti, translated from the French by Beverley Crossand Francis Evans
“...this whirl of a comedy takes the form of a classic French farce, complete with multiple doors and... perpetual high anxiety as a result of a slew of romantic shenanigans... pure cotton candy— an ideal escapist entertainment for the dog days of summer” --Chicago Sun-Times
DEATHTRAP - July 10-19
by Ira Levin
A washed-up playwright, a supportive wife, an aspiring young playwright who has written a top notch thriller, a secluded location and a wall decorated with death instruments...
“Deathtrap is that rarity, a comic stage thriller that provides plenty of laughs and some real spine-tingling turns.” --Miami Herald
BYE BYE BIRDIE - July 25-August 2
Book by Michael Stewart; music by Charles Strouse; lyrics by Lee Adams
A delightful, ditzy romp featuring “One Last Kiss,” “The Telephone Hour,” “A Lot of Livin’ To Do,” and “Kids.” Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Bye Bye Birdie is based on the true story of Elvis Presley being drafted into the Army in 1958, and the ensuing media circus of his departure.
Creating Excellent Community Theatre
Attic Theatre was founded in 1950 in the attic of the Cloak family home on North Union Street in Appleton, Wisconsin. What began as an acting class has become the longest running community theatre in the Fox Valley. In the early days, Attic performed in a variety of venues such as Jefferson School and local church basements. When Lawrence University opened the Music-Drama Center, Attic began its lengthy partnership with LU, employing both theatres during the summer months. Our newest venue, the beautiful UW Fox Valley Communication Arts Center, affords the opportunity to produce a wider array of plays with greater audience appeal.
From simple beginnings, Attic has grown to produce hundreds of full-scale shows over a span of more than 60 years. In addition to a full summer season, Attic currently offers a popular children’s workshop in the spring and a weeklong day camp in the summer.
Each year, thousands of people participate in Attic Theatre on stage, backstage, as volunteers, or as audience members. Ticket sales exceed 5,000 annually. Attic truly does create excellent community theatre.
