CANDIDE

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Third Avenue Playhouse

A Comic Operetta
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Richard Wilbur, John Latouche, Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler

Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein, CANDIDE is a witty and wacky musical satire. Based on Voltaire’s 1759 novella, CANDIDE takes the audience on a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as the characters clash with a series of absurd events. The young and naïve title character is betrothed to the Baron of Westphalia’s beautiful daughter Cunegonde, and along with the maid Paquette and Cunegonde’s brother Maximilian, they all subscribe firmly to the doctrine that has been instilled in them by their teacher Dr. Pangloss: that everything that occurs is for the best, no matter what.  They soon find out that isn’t always the case.

The Blues Disciples

Sherwood Point Grill (6962 County Rd M, Sturgeon Bay)

The Blues Disciples have been bringing their Blues to the people of the local clubs in the Milwaukee area and the Midwest region since 1990. Founded by "Barefoot" Jimmy Schwarz with the intent of remaining true to the influences of the Chicago electric blues era of the '50's and 60's. Influenced initially by the likes of Little Walter, and Muddy Waters, and then directly by Wisconsin Blues greats Jim Liban and Billy Flynn they forged a sound and band that rose to the top of the Milwaukee Blues scene. Their years of powerful shows every week at Milwaukee Blues fixture, The Up & Under, turned a whole new generation on to the Blues genre. Many years and changes have kept their music fresh, and relevant, while still remaining true to their Blues roots.

SUGAR STILL - Whiskey soaked harmonies and rollicking gypsy folk.

$15

A 3-day road trip from Santa Monica Pier to Wrigleyville, careening down the length of Route 66 writing songs about whiskey, sex, cheap motels, and coffee, led acoustic duo Sugar Still out on an endless coast-to-coast tour in support of their debut album Balance (June 2015), their holiday EP Sugar and Spice (Nov. 2015), and now their 3rd studio album Go (March 2017). Conservatory-trained violinist/vocalist Sarah Blick and acclaimed roots singer-songwriter Charlie Cheney perform lively, poignant originals and contemporary covers filled with rocking guitar riffs, swinging blue violin, and beautiful vocal harmonies reminiscent of It’s a Beautiful Day, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Civil Wars, and Jefferson Airplane. Sugar Still performed over 80 shows in 2015 in the midwest, and over 150 shows in 2016 in 26 states and Canada.
