Sputnik Manitowoc – By Let Me Be Frank – Cancelled
This show has been cancelled visit www.cccshows.org for rescheduling information.
Diamonds and Gold and the Capitol Civic Centre are excited to announce that the Let Me Be Frank players are returning to the Capitol with the all-new musical comedy, “Sputnik Manitowoc.” Tickets for the Oct. 15 and 17 performances will be available at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
In 1962, 13 pounds of Sputnik fell on 8th Street in Manitowoc. That fact is true, but the Let Me Be Frank players will share a made-up story about espionage and intrigue in this all-new and incredibly funny show.
As a JFK doppelgänger, the Mayor of Manitowoc, “DFK,” and his Marilyn Monroeish secretary try to convince Russian proteges Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale that Manitowoc should keep the space gem. It is Boris and Natasha’s hope that they can come to a peaceful negotiation for the return of Sputnik 4 without any funny business—good luck with that, especially with officers Toody and Muldoon in charge of the exchange. The music of the early 1960s (featured in this production) was out of this world, and the Cold War was too.
As the Capitol returns to delivering the joy of live performance their goal is to assure patrons, volunteers, and staff with a sense of safety while attending or working at an event at the newly renovated theatre.
Tickets are $30 (plus tax and fees) and are available at cccshows.org or by phone, (920) 683-2184. Doors are at 6:30 p.m. and performance at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 15 and Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020.
