Nicolet Players auditions Sept. 15, 16 for The Games Afoot
 
      The Nicolet Players will hold auditions Sept. 15 and 16 for a murder mystery that’s filled with hilarity and perfect for new and experienced actors alike, according to Nicolet’s Theatre director.
      The Games Afoot is chockfull of mischievous tomfoolery and set in 1936. The plot centers around Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes. He’s invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim.
      “It’s brilliantly written and the storyline is hilarious which makes rehearsals a whole lot of fun,” said Jim Nuttall, Nicolet College Theatre director.
      There are roles for three men and five women ranging in age from the late teens to early 70s.
      “Auditions are open to everyone,” Nuttall explained. “You do not need to be a Nicolet student. All you need is enthusiasm and the desire to be in a highly entertaining production.”
      All auditions will be held in the Nicolet College Theatre in the Learning Resources Center. The campus is located one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G.
      Scripts are available for three-day check-out from the Nicolet College Library.
      Performances are Nov. 7 to 9 and 13 to 16.
      Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Nuttall at (715) 365-4476 or by email at jnuttall(at)nicoletcollege(dot)edu.

FOOD FOR KIDZ IN MINOCQUA
For the seventh year in a row, volunteers from the Lakeland area and surrounding communities will team up with non-profit organization “Food for Kidz” to help reduce world hunger. This event will take place on Saturday, October 18 at Lakeland Union High School in Minocqua.
 
Food for Kidz, a program of feeding children internationally, is an opportunity to serve others by packaging high protein, low cost meals which are then sent to those who need them. Many of those who receive these meals eat just one meal a day. The mission of Food for Kids is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and feed God’s starving children throughout the world. Our goal this year is to package 150,000 meals in just four hours. To accomplish this, 600 volunteers are needed. There will be two shifts on Saturday morning. The first shift is 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the second is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. People of all ages are needed from elementary age children, youth, young adults, the elderly and families and anyone who has a heart ready to help others. Getting involved is easy. Look for volunteer sign-up sheets at many area churches, the Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce, MHLT, AV-W and LUHS schools.
 
Donations are also needed to pay for the food. Each meal costs 15 cents, but 150,000 meals will cost
$22,500. A donation of $32.40 will buy a box of food that will make 216 meals, but donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated. Make your check payable to Food for Kidz and send it to John Breiten, 1061 Keppler Road, Winchester, WI 54557.
