Description [edit]
One of the area's finest art museums and, sadly, a fairly well-kept secret. The museum features cutting-edge exhibitions in an airy, post-modern building and a century-old mansion in downtown Sheboygan. An ambitious performance schedule keeps things lively. ARTCafe serves beverages and exceptional sandwiches.

STEP AFRIKA!, African American Stepping

Like a tap dance without shoes, or a band without instruments, stepping is percussive dance that uses kicks, stomps, claps, and chants – all linked to African and modern dance traditions. As the first professional company devoted to stepping, Washington, DC’s world-renowned Step Afrika! brings high-energy performance to the stage: a feast for both the eyes and ears.

A Kodachrome Christmas, starring John McGivern

Written and Directed by Pat Hazell Thursday–Saturday, December 11–13, 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14, 2:00 p.m. Enter the colorful world of cable access TV hostess Earlene Hoople (John McGivern), the self-proclaimed “Queen of Rural Media,” as she tapes her Christmas special in front of a live audience. Letters to Mrs. Claus, an outrageous family slide show, fresh-baked snickerdoodles, and a visit from the church hand bell choir set the stage for a picture-perfect evening of theatre. Buckle up, because Earlene is dangerously close to crafting her way out of her mind and into your heart this holiday season.
