Also, all five interns are Wisconsin natives and are attending or have attended schools in Wisconsin.”
The summer world premiere, “Oklahoma in Wisconsin,” by Richard Castle and Matthew Levine, features returning company members Doug Mancheski, Eva Nimmer, Bill Theisen, Rhonda Rae Busch, Alex Campea, and introduces performing intern John Brotherhood.

Last year’s cast for Matt Zembrowski’s Doctor! Doctor! returns with the addition of performing intern, Laura Paruzynski, as Annie Norberg.
