Immortal Girlfriend is an alternative electronic/ Retrofuture band and production duo, made up of brothers Kevin and William Bush. The self proclaimed “Dark Knights of Synth” define their sound as a blend of synth, cinema, nostalgia, and long car rides at night. Recently, Immortal Girlfriend has been involved in composing film scores and other commercial work, with their projects being recognized by NPR and Essence. Immortal Girlfriend creates a sonic landscape that will marry beautifully with the opera classics that will be “covered” in this performance. Both Florentine Opera and Immortal Girlfriend are already working closely together on repertoire selection for the upcoming performance. Read more about Immortal Girlfriend in this 88Nine interview.
“The Florentine Opera’s commitment to ‘classics with a twist’ stays true with this collaboration change,“ shares Maggey Oplinger, general director and CEO. “We know the Milwaukee audience loves hummable, recognizable tunes sung by beautiful voices, and the Covers performance will deliver just that. Immortal Girlfriend is a powerhouse for lush sound, and will allow us all to enjoy some of our favorite opera in a whole new way.”

Stand Up Comedy at The Bend
It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin Bozeman found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day. What to do? Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”. “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.
Fast forward to present day, Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements. “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”. With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in entertainment venues, clubs and colleges across the country. In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist. He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005. He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2015. Kevin has appeared on Comedy Central, NBC, CBS and Fox. His Dry Bar Comedy Special, “Clean & Unfiltered” has over 7 million views.
Doors open at 6:30 PM to give you time to find your seats, visit our historic lobby, concession stand and fully stocked bar!
Show begins at approximately 7:30 PM.
This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.

WINTER 2023 SESSION 1: JANUARY 14 – FEBRUARY 11
SESSION 1 CLASSES
Rhythm In Motion (Drums)
Rhythm Nation will integrate percussive sounds and styles from various musical genres and cultures to teach students the importance of time keeping within the performing arts. Students will learn with use of African drums, congas, cymbals, and traditional drum sets, the basics of rhythm and drumming techniques. Students will understand the history and evolution of the drum and how it has transformed from a communication form to the heartbeat of modern-day musical genres.
Write On (Songwriting)
This class will journey through the world of imagination exploring options and ideas that will become the foundation for creating original songs. The students will learn how to choose topics, break them down and use the subtopics as writing points. The goal will be to take the ideas and write choruses, verses, and bridges for songs that they will then use as the building blocks for their masterpieces later in life.
The Show Must Go On (Theatre)
Students will actively participate in fun theater games, character development, and skit performances to enrich their own skills as actors and on-stage performers. Students will engage with both their instructor and fellow classmates to grow performance skills, stage presence, and overall confidence.
