This week, Christian looks back at four underrated shows from the 2013 theater season.
Space Voyage: The Musical Frontier
By Nicholas Connors and Quinn Elmer
Directed by Amanda Connors
Come check out InterMission Theatre's World Premiere production!
'Space Voyage: The Musical Frontier' is a new full scale, 2-act musical that parodies classic science fiction. With a wholly original plot and story, this hilarious musical follows the bumbling Captain David Drake and his crew aboard the U.S.S. Derivative as they try to save the galaxy from one of its greatest threats. The musical features original music and lyrics by UW-Madison student Nicholas Connors as well as a script co-written by fellow undergraduate Quinn Elmer and Connors.
Produced by InterMission Theatre at Bartell Theater's Drury Stage, 113 E. Mifflin St., Madison

Are We Delicious? The Play?
By Lee Waldhart, Scott Stanley, Matt Sloan, Christian Neuhaus, Kelly Maxwell, Jenny Maahs, Odari Kimani, Erin Baal
Directed by Tony Trout, William Bolz
Are We Delicious? is bold, fresh, fast-paced fun.
We take 8 organically grown scripts and 8 free-range performers, add freshly squeezed adrenaline, put in a pressure cooker for one week and see what we get.
Care for a taste?
July 2013 ensemble:
By Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Tmothy S. Riley
The Stoughton Village Players is pleased to announce audition and production dates for our fall musical, "Company.” Stephen Sondheim's brilliant groundbreaking study of love, friendship, marriage, isolation and commitment offers excellent singing/acting roles for 14 performers, 8 women and 6 men, approximate age range mid twenties to mid forties.
This is a musical comedy performer’s dream show that is not often produced. We welcome all who are interested to audition and look forward to seeing you in September.

Playwrights Ink is a non-profit association of theater artists dedicated to the development of playwrights and their work. Our members include area playwrights, actors, directors, and theater enthusiasts. We use a reading and critique process beginning with informal readings during our monthly meetings. We have on occasion taken the further step of presenting public staged readings, following which we encourage audience feedback. We are not a production company. We usually meet on the third Monday of every month at the Lowell Center.

The Pain And The Itch
By Bruce Norris
Directed by George Gonzalez
During a holiday gathering with Clay and Kelly's extended family, their daughter’s nasty genital itch serves as a catalyst to reveal uncomfortable truths, including fraternal hatred, infidelity, a failed marriage, and venereal disease. As the story is narrated to their visitor, his relationship to the events become clear – as does the emptiness of the families supposed benevolence and sensitivity.
Did we mention it’s a comedy?!
