Population: 485 Meeting Your Neighbors One Alarm at a Time Written by and Starring Michael Perry
January 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$18 – $60
New York Times best-selling author, humorist, singer/songwriter Michael Perry
returns to the OAC stage with his new stage play based on his extraordinarily
popular book, “Population: 485.” Directed by Jake Lindgren and featuring
original music by Sean Carey, the show made its debut in August, 2016
under the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauquatent near Bayfield, WI. Like
the book, the stage version picks up when Perry, who serves as the show’s
narrator, returns to his childhood town of New Auburn in rural northwest
Wisconsin and joins the volunteer fire and rescue department.
The heartfelt stories of neighbors helping neighbors leave audiences
chuckling as they ponder life and the strength of a Midwest community.
