Rhinelander High School Drama Department presents Mamma Mia
ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale, creating a memorable show.
Co-director Kristin Higgins said the audience probably won’t need any encouragement, but “we expect the crowds to sing along with the amazingly popular tunes, which will make the experience even more fun.”
Performances for Mamma Mia will be Thursday, Nov. 1, through Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m., with a matinee Sunday, Nov. 4 at 1 p.m. at the John and Dori Brown Performing Arts Center at Rhinelander High School. General admission tickets are $5, and will be available at the door prior to each performance.

Haunted house open in Eagle River
Evil Falls House of Tormented Souls is open and ready for spooking at 215 S. Railroad St., in downtown Eagle River. Owners Mark and Karen Cropsey will once again transform into Marcus Dread and Karena D. Cay. Marcus Dread resides at the House of Tormented Souls. His demented character is in search of weak humans whose mind, body and spirit are unstable and their souls split from their physical being making them perfect prey– for he is known as the Soul Collector. Helping in his demented scheme is his partner in crime, Karena D. Cay, a soulless, forsaken dark bride. She will do anything to help him in his need to feed on the souls of those who enter Evil Falls. Prepare for startling scares, creepy scare-actors, dark narrow paths, intense lighting, fog, blood and gore, haunting music and dark claustrophobic spaces. The House is open Fridays and Saturdays in October and on Halloween night, 7-11 p.m. Tickets are available on site only; a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Northland Pines Drama and Music programs. For more information visit evilfalls.com or call 715-477-0808.
