Each production comes with its new challenges. This musical is especially demanding in the props and special effects department. One of the custom pieces of furniture which needed to be built was a large round "pouffe." Here, Loren Sass (set designer and actor in the show) and Tom Young (stage manager) test out their finished product.

P.A.P.A.S. (Parent Advocates for the Performing Arts in Our Schools) is beginning a campaign to assist the school district's music department. We are particularly looking for used string instruments, but also will be able to accept band instruments. Because of school budget cuts, every year there are students who are turned away from participation on the orchestra because they cannot afford to rent or buy an instrument. The P.A.P.A.S. Board of Directors is asking the community to consider donating instruments for this purpose. Since P.A.P.A.S. is a 501(c) 3 charitable non-profit corporation, you would receive a letter acknowledging your contribution for tax purposes. If you have questions, or an instrument you are willing to part with, please call Loren Sass, the P.A.P.A.S. treasurer, at 608-365-0235 or email him at
