Did you know that Wisconsin is not only the home of legendary stars of the stage and screen, but that it also has one of the world’s major research centers for entertainment history?
The Ephraim Historical Foundation will welcome Mary Huelsbeck, assistant director of the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research at UW-Madison, to discuss it all Aug. 11, 7:30-8:30 pm, at the Ephraim Village Hall, 9996 Hwy 42.
Learn about Wisconsinites who made it big in film, on television and on stage. Watch Frank Lloyd Wright on the first late-night TV talk show. See reproductions of costume designer Edith Head’s sketches for Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Stephen Sondheim’s handwritten lyrics for West Side Story. Listen to Rod Serling dictate a script, and read scripts from classic TV shows including Hill Street Blues and WKRP in Cincinnati.
