The Outsider - Postponed

By Paul Blade Smith

Directed by Dee Savides

Ned Newly doesn’t even want to be governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently. Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office, unless the public is looking for…the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.

Produced by Attic Theatre at U.W. Fox Communication Arts Center, 1478 Midway Road, Menasha

Performances: June 11-19, 2020

March 2020

Attic Chamber Theatre for 70 years has embraced all genres of drama. Now, a currently unfolding health crisis gives us pause to reconsider our priorities. As we all adapt to the immediate new normal of daily life, ACT must adjust as well. We recognize with schools and businesses closing indefinitely, mass gatherings limited to 10 people, social distancing and non-essential business closures, our individual needs have and will continue to radically shift. We are absolutely serious about the safety of our volunteers and audiences! We love our community and your welfare is our utmost concern. In uncertain times we have decided out of an abundance of caution, to suspend the summer season with a strong commitment to be prepared to assist in the healing of our community after the pandemic subsides.

Attic Theatre has been a crucial component that makes the Fox Valley a vibrant place to live, work and play. We provide opportunities for Fox Valley artists and audiences to celebrate the human experience. The variety and quality of shows that Attic Chamber Theatre produces is exciting and will continue. We will nourish your mind, delight your spirit and enrich your life through our productions of classic, contemporary and musical play plays.

Traditionally, at the close of each summer season, Attic Chamber Theatre turns out the lights until the following year. We are eager to announce that we have been given an opportunity to continue with a fall and winter season. UWO-Fox Cities has invited Attic Chamber Theatre to rent their beautiful facility throughout the school year of 2020/2021. This gives ACT the option to push the previously announced summer productions into next fall and spring.

The show must go on!! And it will! We will come through this crisis stronger and with a deeper commitment to provide the quality entertainment you need and expect.

Stay safe, informed and follow our website — and we sincerely hope to see you in the fall.
