As some say... happy fall y'all! As the pendulum begins to swing back towards the cooler months, we here at the Fleeing Artists aren't quite ready to say goodbye to summer just yet!

We had a very busy summer producing three Shakespeare productions! We began the summer performing Titus Andronicus, directed by Bethanne Duffy. A fully realized production sharing a gruesome story of familial honor and revenge. The production made audience members laugh and squirm in their seats - not an easy task! We followed this up with our yearly, free, outdoor performance. Taming of the Shrew, with Bezza LeGrave and Alex Metalsky at the helm, was performed at Lincoln Park in Kenosha. The play of intrigue, disguises, romance, and sibling rivalry performed in the beautiful flower gardens with the setting sun as the backdrop. Finally, we had the honor to join the Kenosha Tall Ships as we set sail aboard the Red Witch performing a 5 woman version of Shakespeare's Tempest, adapted and directed by Alex Metalsky. This sea-fearing production brought magic and laughter to audiences with beautiful Lake Michigan as our playground.

We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your support and well wishes as we tackled our Shakespeare packed summer and the start of our second season! Though we have been on a short vacation, the Fleeing Artists board has been meeting to discuss a few changes, and most importantly, the announcement of the second half our second season! Stay tuned as we announce our shows...if you can't wait consider this: original locally produced scripts, a spirited take on a beloved classic, and a modern show guaranteed to make you crack a smile.

We have already begun plans for the start of our third season, and the return of Summer Shakespeare and Classics series for the 2020 summer season, because summer is never really that far off, is it?

The Fleeing Artists would like to extend a huge thank-you to all of our supporters as we built our little theater company from the ground up and premiered our first season! Without help and support from the community we would not be where we are today - approaching our sixth season of our Summer Shakespeare/Classics series and about to release our full second season schedule!

Over the last year we performed Euripide's Medea, William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Tennessee William's The Glass Menagerie, John Cariani's Almost Maine, and original productions of Secre(a)ts by Kameron Schueneman and Built of Ivory by Pharyne Stephney Gremore - two local playwrights!

We have learned a lot over the last year as a company, have certainly grown from our initial creation. There have may have been some ups and downs, but what would life be without moments of excitement and challenge? Moments like these spur some of the best art. We have welcomed a large number of new actors and designers to our team. We couldn't be happier for these new friendships we have fostered. Through theater you find a family, and a place of belonging and we have absolutely, and happily, expanded ours.

As we enter our second season, we hope to bring you the same high-quality, passionate, art that you enjoyed throughout our first season. We are always welcoming new faces and project ideas. Again, thank you so much for your continued support. Our passion is theater, and bringing art to the greater Kenosha area. We want to provide opportunities for both locals who are unfamiliar with theater, and those who are avid fans, to see performances produced by an energized, inclusive, eager company.

Our Facebook page has grown to over 500 likes, and we have recently launched an Instagram account. For the most up-to-date information please like and follow us on these pages.

Wishing you well, with most sincerity,
