All StageNorth Groundlings productions are postponed until further notice.
StageNorth Groundlings present William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, directed by Kristen Sandstrom. Synopsis: Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio’s business falters, repayment becomes impossible — and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well… or does it? Performances run March 20-22 and 26-29. Shows are at 7:30 p.m., except for Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for senior citizens, $16 for students with valid I.D., and $10 for children age 11 and under. Tickets are available online at thegroundlings.org, or call 715-373-1194 and leave a message. StageNorth Groundlings is a nonprofit arts organization in Washburn devoted to the theater arts. It produces four or five shows a year and runs a summer children’s theater program.
