Diamonds and Gold presents Let Me Be Frank's all new musical comedy, â€œThe Activity Busâ€ Denmark, Wisconsin at the Meyer Theatre. Frank Hermans (founder of Let Me Be Frank's) attended junior high and a little bit of high School in Denmark. While enjoying sports and extracurricular activities after school, he explored other extracurricular activities on â€œThe Activity Bus.â€ Living in the country (out of town), Frank and many others would take â€œThe Activity Busâ€ home after practice or rehearsal and let's just say a lot of rehearsal and practice happened on that bus!
While the story is fictional and the names have been changed to protect the innocent, and not-so-innocent, LMBF's touches on the reality of what happened on those wonderful nightly rides home. Our story centers on the reunions of the class of 1980, '81 and '82. The classes gather for a reunion at Denmark High and reminisce about the past and how they would have changed things. They slip back in time to the early 1980s after beating Mishicot in a heated Olympian Conference game. The real game starts on the way home as they vie for the opportunity to sit next to the opposite sex. Then the bus breaks down, as well as their inhibitions and secrets. The students realize they wouldn't have changed a thing. Great 1980s music and hilarity ensue!
â€œThe Activity Busâ€ Denmark, Wisconsin opens September 18 at the Meyer Theatre with a fundraiser for the Mediation Center.
LMBF's welcomes back alum Paul Evansen! Also in the cast: Frank Hermans, Amy Riemer, Lisa Borley, Kasey Corrado, Tom Verbrick and Pat Hibbard. Featuring LMBF's amazing band: Pat Hibbard, Tony Pilz, Adam Cain and Dennis Panneck.
