This summer, the performance company celebrates 50 years of just that. “We had a beautiful facility that we didn’t use,” Birder says. “And back then we were the only show in town in the summer.” The later statement is no longer true, but over the past five decades the program has built up a loyal following that has filled St. Norbert’s Webb and Walter theaters with approximately 500,000 guests at more than 790 performances. From the first production, Little Mary Sunshine, to this year’s Man of La Mancha and The Phantom of the Opera, Music Theatre has presented Broadway-caliber shows with the area’s best local talents. There has been much anticipation about gaining the rights to perform this summer’s shows, and Birder says that each production offers a different atmosphere. La Mancha will show at the smaller, more intimate Webb Theatre, while The Phantom production will play at Walter Theatre and use a more extravagant set.“We will never have done a show as extensive, as elaborate or as big, and we’re going to do it right,” Birder says. Performing arts is a family affair for the Birders. Dudley’s father taught theater at Notre Dame and the University of Minnesota, and his children, James and Alicia, have been involved in the St. Norbert Music Theatre since they were young. This summer Alicia will be directing La Mancha and James will be at the helm of Phantom. “We got lucky,” Birder says. “There is great excitement about the show, and no other amateur theaters in the area have done it before.” Man of La Mancha will be presented at 8pm on June 17; 7:30pm on June 18, 24, 25 and 30; and 3pm on June 19, 22, 26 and 29. Performances of The Phantom of the Opera will be performed at 8pm on July 28; 7:30pm on July 29 and 30 and August 2–6; and 3pm on July 31 and August 7. Tickets are available online at or at the SNC Box Office. — By Karilyn Robinson 16 | Evening by the Lake Live music, heavy hors d’oeuvres & amazing views. 6–9pm.
