For the first time since its founding, the Campanile Center for the Arts will be presenting an off-Broadway show, direct from New York, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27 at the Campanile Center in Minocqua.
“That Golden Girls Show!” is a brand-new show that parodies classic “Golden Girls” moments — with puppets.
Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down.
From Sophia’s get-rich-quick schemes, to Rose’s tales from St. Olaf, Blanche’s insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, and Dorothy’s daily struggle to make sense of her life.
Devoted fans will fondly remember the four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.
The cast includes Casey Andrews as Dorothy, Ashley Brooke as Sophia, Meggie Doyle as Rose, and Erin Ulman as Blanche.
