UW-Superior Theatre Preparing a Haunted, Hilarious Adventure

November 10, 2017 10:37 AM

UW-Superior students are preparing to hit the stage this weekend with their latest production "All Because of Agatha." Andy Anderson (Duff O'Hara) and Greta Weisel (Joan O'Hara) play husband and wife in this comedic play.


The story follows the two O'Hara's on their move to Salem, Massachusetts. The couple buy an older house there. What they don't know is that the house they bought is haunted by a ghost named Agatha, who was burned during the Salem Witch Trials.

Anderson says his character is skeptical when it comes to the supernatural, while Weisel's character, Joan, becomes excited when it comes to all things spooky. The audience is brought on a hilarious adventure with the couple at the center of it all.

Weisel explains that costume director Stephanie Anderson has gone to far lengths to keep the authenticity of the time in which the play takes place.

"A lot of the costumes are real vintage pieces, " she says. "We just have a lot of fun colorful characters and the costumes really reflect that in the show."

Shows run this weekend and next weekend at the Manion Theatre, located in the Holden Fine and Applied Arts Center on UW-Superior's campus. The first show is Friday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $2 for students enrolled at the school. They can be purchased at the Box Office in Holden Fine and Applied Arts Center.
