Rose’s New Season and Struve’s New Play Bring Excitement

Children’s theatre, regrettably, often doesn’t receive the press that other productions around town get.

But special attention needs to be paid toward The Rose Theater and new Artistic Director Matt Gutschick.

One look at the new season announced at The Rose for 2013/14...

A Girl Named Sue:

It all started with a flat tire and a curious paleontologist named Sue Hendrickson.

In the summer of 1990, Hendrickson was working on a commercial fossil hunting expedition outside of Faith, South Dakota. One day the team woke up to find their truck had a flat tire. So while the rest of the team went to town to fix the flat, Sue used the time to look for dinosaur fossils in some cliffs a few miles away.

April 28th
Hue Blanc's Joyless Ones w/ Killer Blow and Silent Drape Runners
The Sydney, 5918 Maple St.
9 p.m., $5

By combining the menace of British post-punk with a lo-fi Midwestern garage rock rattle, Hue Blanc's Joyless Ones have crafted a take on punk rock that squirms its way into new places. It's hard to overlook the influence that Wisconsin has on the band's working-class rock songs. Sneering vocals...
