We Like it Where?
June 1, 2019 @ 3:00 am - August 31, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
We Like It Where? is based on the true “mouse that roared” story of the town of Winneconne’s brief secession from Wisconsin.
When they are inadvertently left off the state highway map in 1967, the residents of Winneconne, Wisconsin, decide to petition the governor for help. However, he’s not interested in solving their problem, so they take matters into their own hands. What begins as a contest in the local paper to “Put Winneconne Back on the Map” becomes a national story. With the help of two Winneconnians working in Washington, D.C., they concoct a publicity stunt to secede from the state of Wisconsin.
The husband and wife writing team has been hard at work creating energetic musical numbers to accompany Winneconne’s hilarious historic event. “Perhaps our most rewarding research has been done with the two living characters from our show, Jan and Russ Meerdink of Neenah,” says Beula Kovacs. “They’ve provided us with a first-person look at the events that took place more than 50 years ago.”
