Best Local Theatrical Production in the Past Year

1st Place: Shrek The Musical (ECCT)
2nd Place: Les Misérables (ECCT)
3rd Place: Monty Python’s Spamalot (CVTG)

The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre snagged first and second place this year with two contrasting musicals: Shrek The Musical, based on the popular animated movie, and the epic Les Misérables, adapted from Victor Hugo’s historical novel. Shrek, featuring a very green ogre and his quest with a donkey to rescue a feisty princess, hit the State Theatre in July. ECCT’s Les Misérables debuted at the State last October, and along with the incredible vocalists, the set crew did a fabulous job of setting the scenes for the audience. Third place went to the Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild’s October 2013 production of Monty Python’s Spamalot, based on the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which kept theatergoers laughing – and looking on the bright side of life. –Barbara Arnold
