On Jan. 23, at 7 pm, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present a free sing-along screening of the film Mamma Mia!. Using the unforgettable music of ’70s pop stars ABBA as its soundtrack, Mamma Mia! tells the lighthearted story of one bride-to-be’s attempt to identify her father on a Greek island called Kalokairi. The film features Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan, as well as 17 of ABBA’s most enduring and endearing songs, including “The Winner Takes it All” and “Dancing Queen.” Audience members are encouraged to dress in costume if they so desire and to come ready to sing along.
The screening of Mamma Mia! is free to the public and freewill donations are encouraged.
On Jan. 24 at 9 am, the DCA’s Distinguished Lecture Series will offer a lecture entitled “Competing for the Governor’s Mansion: The 2014 Election Between Burke and Walker,” presented by St. Norbert College assistant professor of political science Dr. Ivy Cargile. Cargile’s lecture will examine the nationally publicized gubernatorial race between Republican incumbent Scott Walker and Democrat Mary Burke. Cargile will explore the question of why voters re-elected Walker, what issues came into play most prominently during the election, and the long-term implications of the election for Wisconsin politics.
Cargile’s lecture is free to the public (freewill donations accepted). Coffee and dessert service for the lectures is provided by Base Camp Coffee Shop. The DCA box office, located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek, is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 pm. For more information call 920.868.2728 or visit dcauditorium.org.
