Best Local Theatrical Production in the Past Year

1st Place: Wizard of Oz (CVTG)
2nd Place: Spring Awakening (ECCT)
3rd Place: Footloose (ECCT)

Between the Eau Claire Children’s Theatre and the Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild, the local productions in the Chippewa Valley are always excellent. This year’s best production as voted by you was the Wizard of Oz (CVTG). Put on in late June, Oz featured a cast and crew of over 100 adults and children. The sets were brightly painted, the costumes were fun, the acting/singing was phenomenal on all levels, and it was the perfect family show for the summer. Another top notch performance was ECCT’s production of Spring Awakening. This controversial musical about teenagers becoming adults had its area debut in early May. Its edgy, but real topics and spectacular acting made this show a great success. In third place is the fun, dance-centered musical based on the 1984 movie, Footloose. ECCT had the fabulous dancing and singing necessary to make their production entertaining and enjoyable. – Emily Anderson
