Weekend Guide, January 25-27

THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH FESTIVE THINGS TO DO!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

PARENTS, ENJOY A COMEDIC NIGHT AT THE THEATRE!

Opening THIS WEEKEND… 
The Explorers Club: A Comedy runs January 25-February 10!

Lake Country Playhouse Hartland

It is London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman. GASP! A decision that could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship. Nell Benjamin’s 19th century British farce adds her to the ranks of today’s outstanding female playwrights.
 
Rated: PG -13+
Tickets available HERE.

Well winter sure showed up this week! Snow day on Wednesday and looks to be the chilliest ever on the weekend. Friday has a high of 0!! Brr!!

Don’t worry. We have lots of ideas below for embracing the snow and cold 🙂 (with the bonus idea of hopping a plane to a southern destination!)
