The Haylofters perform three shows a season also adding a children's show in the summer and a holiday event. They are one of the oldest continually running local theater groups in Wisconsin.
They perform at the Historical Malt Theater in Burlington Wisconsin The Malt Theater is a quaint theater with so much history located on the corner of Hwy. 142 & Hwy. 11 right on the beautiful Fox River. It was built in 1800's as the Jacob Muth Brewery and later Finke Uhen Malt House. The Malt House was purchased by the Haylofters after WWII for $850 in back taxes. It is said that the Malt House is haunted - there are even steps leading to a tunnel under the Fox River. Read more about the haunted Malt House on the Burlington Wisconsin UFO & Paranormal Center's website.
On October 17th Isa & I along with a co-worker and her 2 nieces will be going to the Friday evening show to see Young Frankenstein presented by the Haylofters. This show will be extra special since I know two of the actors. Both work at the hospital ~ one of the doctors is Igor and our night security guard is Ziggy.
Young Frankenstein the musical by Mel Brooks is a perfect way to start our Halloween season. The show is goofy and offers great dry humor. Perfect for the two of us to enjoy. I can hardly wait till the curtain rises!!! A Girls Night Out! The arts ~ especially theater is something that I am positive she will enjoy and have great memories for years to come.
I also purchased us two tickets for Scrooge the Musical. Playing on December 12th at 7:30pm.
If you like theater ~ give your local theater group a try. You will be amazed at the quality of the events. Show are usually very reasonable priced. Tickets for the Haylofters cost only $15.00 a person!
Do you enjoy the theater? If so - Have you ever been to your local theater house?
