UW-Manitowoc Hosts Performance Featuring Local WWII Story


The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc Lecture and Fine Arts Committee is hosting a theatre performance, Alice and Eugene: The Lucky Ones. True, Local Stories from WWII and The Great Depression, on Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in the campus’ University Theatre. There is no admission charge, but free-will donations will be accepted to help support the campus’ Lecture and Fine Arts program.


The Huzzah Theatre Troupe of Sheboygan, led by UW-Manitowoc alumna Colleen Machut, will present the play based on the lives of two Manitowoc citizens who lived through World War II; a veteran and his wife. Their story is depicted through various types of artistic expression including music, poetry, storytelling and movement.


The mission of the Huzzah Theatre Troupe is to “preserve and share these important stories, honor the people who lived them, and help all of us remember who we are.” The group’s Live Forever Project is currently focusing on people who lived through World War II and The Great Depression. They have conducted 25 interviews to date.
