Following the tremendous success of Rogue Theater’s The Odd Couple – The Female Version several weeks ago, the theater company is bringing it back to the stage for three more shows Oct. 11-13. To learn more and reserve tickets, call 920.818.0816 or visit facebook.com/roguetheater.
Rogue Theater also continues to make a commitment to the community that goes beyond theatrical presentations. During its recent run of The Odd Couple – The Female Version, the troupe honored one of its greatest patrons: the late Judy Porter, who attended every Rogue show with her husband, Harry. She asked that memorial donations be given to a scholarship fund at the UW-Madison School of Nursing, from which she graduated in 1959 with a degree in nursing education.
During the show’s previous run, $5 from each adult ticket went to the scholarship fund, raising $1,600. Harry attended every show, and his remarks helped to raise awareness of the need for qualified nurses in our community.
In 1980, with longtime friend Diane Kiehnau, Judy opened Porter Kiehnau Home Care Services – one of the state’s first privately owned home-health-care services – and ran it for almost 20 years. They also worked to establish a state organization for home-health-care providers and founded an assisted-living home called Cranberry Haus.
