and professional setting has underscored
the extraordinary work and talent of our
students and faculty. Most of these
events are free to the public or for a very
reasonable ticket price. What a terrific
entertainment value for the whole family.

John McDaniel
Is Living His Dream
by Elaine Schmidt
Known in the theater business as a
pianist, music director, singer, dancer,
arranger and orchestrator, McDaniel
works frequently with Tyne Daly, as her
accompanist and music director.
Saturday, April 2, 2011
7:30 pm
$24 Adults, $18 Seniors,
$8 Students, Reserved
Having first worked with her nearly 20
years ago, McDaniel said,“I’m just crazy
about her. This is a complete labor of love.”
Fans of bestselling author, Michael
Perry, will love his band, The Long
Beds. The music from this group is
described as a combination of “country
folk”,“folk-twang’” and Americana.
He explained that the two of them met
working on a production of Queen of the
Stardust Ballroom, staying in touch and
doing a benefit or two over the years.
Then, a few years ago, she called
McDaniel and said she wanted to put
together an act with him. They talked a
bit about it.
Rhythmic Circus

Feet Don’t Fail Me Now
$24 Adults, $18 Seniors,
$8 Students, Reserved
In this groundbreaking production, the
company showcases their technical
capacity as dancers and explores
rhythm through percussive dance as it
plays off a wide array of musical
genres spanning from funk to salsa.
Infusing their unique style of hard-hitting
tap, high-spirited humor, and fingersnapping tunes, Rhythmic Circus satisfies
their “rhythmic appetite” on everything
from sand to folding chairs, and in one
number even utilizes the technology of
electric drum triggers to change the
sound of their taps!
This unforgettable show is guaranteed to leave
audiences of all ages amazed with its unique
“you have to see it to believe it” quality!

“Then she had dinner with Michael
Feinstein,” McDaniel recalled, “who said
here are some dates – let’s do it.”
Feinstein was referring to booking Daly
at his club, Feinstein’s at Loews Regency,
something of an institution in New York
nightlife.
McDaniel recalls Daly calling the next
day and saying, “Oh my God, we have a
booking!”
They appeared at Feinstein’s in May 2009
and again this past January. They have
since taken their act to a few places
around the country.
“We have a blast,” McDaniel said, adding
that the show they do here will be a
cabaret-style combination of the two
shows they gave at Feinstein’s. “These are
songs from Tyne’s life, from shows she
did, songs she shared with her kids and
songs her mom taught her.”
John McDaniel
He spoke a little about a pared-down
version of Queen of the Stardust Ballroom
that he and Daly are working on for
Broadway, and mused a bit about the
business in general, offering advice to
young performers looking at a life in
the arts.
“I would say to young people that if
there’s anything else you want to do, do
it. It’s the hardest thing in the world to
make a living in the arts.”
“Think about all the classical musicians
in school right now and the few
symphony positions that come available
each year. Think about the fact that 97percent of actors who are members of
Actors’ Equity [the national union for
stage actors] are unemployed at any
given moment, one of them more
talented than the next and a new crop
arriving every year,” he continued.
But he countered the dire statistics by
adding, “I think that if this is what you

“They told me that I was a good enough
performer, but that my music was off the
charts,” he recalled. They offered to
create coursework and experiences for
him that would lead him toward music
directing, rather than singing and dancing.
Tyne Daly
“I had not thought about music directing
as a career, even though I had done some
of that in high school,” he said. He decided
to take them up on the offer and began
learning skills that would lead him to a
career as a pianist, music director, arranger
and orchestrator.

ago, McDaniel said, “I’m just
crazy about her. This is a
complete labor of love.”
really want to do, if you believe in
yourself, are diligent and keep on going
and keep on putting yourself out there,
you can achieve your dreams.”
McDaniel said that he saw his first
musical in the sixth grade, in St. Louis
and was hooked.
“After that, I checked out all the
recordings of musicals from the library. I
got to know them all – the popular ones
and the flops. I was just a sponge at that
age,” he said. “By the time I got to
college, my goal was to sing and dance
on Broadway. I had always wanted to live
in New York.”
He attended Carnegie Mellon University,
at a time when all theater students were
evaluated at the end of their sophomore
year and about half of them cut from the
program.
He recalls worrying that he might be one
of the students cut, only to have his
advisor tell him that they were going to
offer him a special program.
16
In the end, he missed his own college
graduation because he was playing the
piano, singing and dancing on a cruise
ship in the Greek Islands.
It was several years of cruise ship work
and some years spent in Los Angeles
before he got a call to do the first
Broadway revival of Grease. It was 1994,
and McDaniel headed east to fulfill his
dream of working on Broadway and
living in New York.
Today he speaks fairly casually about
working on a production of Bonnie and
Clyde in Florida in the fall, with hopes for a
Broadway opening during the winter, and
about Queen of the Stardust Ballroom with
Daly. But there’s still a bit of wonder in his
voice at the reality of living his dream.

Three Little Pigs, Little Red’s Most Unusual Day, Pinocchio and
Jack and the Beanstalk. This clever new tale introduces
children to a new opera adventure. This operatic version of
the story of Billy Goats Gruff is based on scenes from operas

Touching Hearts and Opening Minds
with the New Family Series
What do ballet dancers, lifelike
marionettes, opera-singing billy goats
and a Guitarangi da Gamba have in
common? They are just a taste of the
magic to be discovered through the
imaginative programming of the new
Family Series being offered at the
Oconomowoc Arts Center.
With a focus on the younger audience,
the exceptional series of four performing
arts events promises to introduce and
connect kids and their families with the
wonders of the stage through live music,
dance, theater, puppetry and engaging
artistry. Three of the four programs will
include educational workshops and
performances for Oconomowoc Area
School District students and also
performances for the public.
“The arts are a wonderful way for families
to spend some quality time together,” says
Oconomowoc Arts Center Manager Michael
Duncan.“Our new Family Series is a way to
bridge a stronger connection between the
community and the arts by offering high
quality, professional programs for families
right in their own neighborhood.”
The idea to offer more opportunities for
young people and their families to
experience the magic of live performing
arts at the OAC came after receiving input
during the Oconomowoc Community
Assessment Forum held in September of
2009.“The community is discovering the
neat things that are going on at the Arts
Center and we received feedback that
they wanted more programming that was
affordable and geared to families. Last
year, 65 percent of our ticket sales were
purchased by adults ages 55 and older.
The Family Series is a way to reach out to
the next generation of audience members
and supporters of the arts,” adds Duncan.
Breaking barriers with the
Milwaukee Ballet
The curtains will open on the new
Family Series on Friday, February 4 with a
workshop and performance by the
By Rebecca Seymour
Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II. The
program is part of the Milwaukee Ballet’s
community outreach initiative and is
made up of young dancers who have
recently graduated from the Milwaukee
Ballet School.
Every year the Milwaukee Ballet II
reaches out to 30,000 people in
Milwaukee and the surrounding
communities with intimate workshops
and performances held in libraries,
school gyms and venues like the OAC.
Designed to break the misconceptions
and stereotypes surrounding ballet, the
performance will showcase the many
facets of the art form with a combination
of classical and contemporary music,
dance, costumes and a narrative
story.
“The goal of our outreach
programs is to make ballet
accessible to everyone and to
engage a new audience by
demonstrating the
dynamic beauty and
diversity of dance,”
says Alyson Chavez,
director of
education for the
Milwaukee
Ballet’s
Community
Outreach
Programs. “Ballet
offers something
for everyone. By
creating a passion
through education
and inspirational
performances we
hope more people will
support ballet and
keep it going.”

The magic of marionettes
The Cashore Marionettes bring art to
life through puppetry on Sunday,
February 13. A buckskin horse gallops
across the stage, its black mane and tail
fluttering like banners in the wind. An
elderly homeless man wipes away tears
as he struggles to sift through a garbage
bin in a park. A tired mother spends a
tender moment cuddling with her baby
in a rocking chair.
Caught up in the graceful fluidity of the
movement, the audience quickly forgets
that the characters they are watching on
stage are attached to strings and
manipulated by a man dressed in black.
Award-winning artist Joseph Cashore is
the man behind the magic of the
marionettes he has crafted and ultimately
brings to life with his own hands.
The Cashore Marionettes
“The illusion that the marionette is
moving on its own without being
manipulated by a string can be very
powerful. There is something inherently
poetic about how the marionettes
communicate through their movement.
It’s easy to get lost in the performance,”
he says.
The program is a collection of original
vignettes and scenes from everyday life set
to original and classical music by
composers such as Vivaldi, Beethoven and
Copland.“Each piece has a specific purpose
and is designed to elicit a broad range of
emotions about what it is to be human. It’s
sort of like the ups and downs of a roller
coaster. I try to surprise my audiences with
something they aren’t expecting and of
course, a bit of magic,” says Cashore.
The performance is most appreciated
by adults, teens and children ages 8 and
older. For more information about the
Cashore Marionettes, visit

A fairytale and the Florentine Opera
The Florentine Opera Company will
present The Billy Goats Gruff, a touring
education program designed to
introduce students in K5 through fifth
grade and their families to opera, on
Tuesday, March 29. Members of the
Florentine Opera Company will trippitytrop, trippity-trop right over the bridge
to Oconomowoc to perform the operatic
version of the classic fairytale, set to the
music of well-known operas by Mozart,
Donizetti and Rossini.
“Everyone thinks of opera as being
very dramatic and serious. Our fairytale
operas make it fun and are a clever way
to show that this multidisciplinary art
form can be enjoyed and appreciated by
everyone. We feel that every child should
have equal access to the arts. This
Todd Green
The Florentine Opera
program is a wonderful tool in
developing little ears and our future
audiences,” says Elizabeth Gardner,
director of education and outreach at
the Florentine Opera.
The Billy Goats Gruff will also feature the
vocal talents of the fourth grade choir
club from Summit Elementary School.
Students will have the opportunity to
work directly with members of the opera
company to learn the music and stage
movement for the performance.
“It is so important to get our kids
excited about something like opera.
Their minds are so open and they are
willing to try new things. We want to
develop people who appreciate the arts
in all ways and for their whole lives,” says
Kay Kline, music teacher at Summit
Elementary. “Being able to work so closely
with the professional performers from the
Florentine Opera and then perform for
their peers and families is an unbelievable
experience for our children.”

Florentine Opera and its education and

A one-man-band plays a world of music
Ever heard of Guitarangi da Gamba?
How about a PersianTombak and Daff?
Multi-instrumentalist and composer
Todd Green will introduce a whole new
world of musical styles and unique and
exotic instruments during his interactive
workshops and performance on Monday
and Tuesday, April 4 and 5.
Todd Green’s concerts promise to
broaden musical horizons as he performs
an eclectic blend of original, classical, jazz,
new age and international music utilizing
20 to 30 string, wind and percussion
instruments from around the world. Using
four synchronized digital samplers to
record and overdub himself live on stage,
the one-man-orchestra weaves magic
and music into an unforgettable and
enriching performance.
“Music is the universal language and I
firmly believe that music can come the
closest to creating an understanding of
other cultures. Children are bombarded
with pop culture and what they hear
from the news. Their viewpoint of the
world changes for the good when they
are introduced to the unusual and
different sounds of music from places
like the Middle East, Asia and South
America,” says Green.

The way we die has dramatically changed over the last 100
years. Instead of dying at home surrounded by friends and
family, most of us will die slowly in an institution. After suffering
personal losses, Terry Kaldhusdal and Mike Bernhagen began a
mission to find the root causes of what ails this country when
comes to treating the terminally ill. One Step Closer is a collection
of personal stories from around the country. While it is a subject
most of us want to avoid, it is a topic all of us must face. In the
end, this documentary will take you one step closer to knowing
what is best for you and your family. www.onestepcloserfilm.org

“The material in Into The Woods is...very difficult material for young
performers. (OHS Director) Thomas Klubertanz mounts a professionally staged version that pleases in every way: from the stellar cast to
top-notch visual designs and luscious orchestrations. If we wouldn’t
have known this was the work of high school performers, you would
have guessed that it was the work of non -equity professional stature.”

Woods performed November 2009 at the Oconomowoc Arts Center
