About WideSpot Junior Players Summer Theater Camp
Under the instruction and direction of theatre veterans Michelle Meyer and Nancy Lund, kids enhance their on- and off-stage skills with WideSpot Junior Players Summer Theatre. No prior acting or drama experience is required — just a willingness to have fun!

Through drama-related workshops, students boost their understanding of stagework through hands-on experience and immersion in:

  • Blocking and Stage Direction
  • Acting and Character Development
  • Teamwork
  • Backstage Management
  • Props, Costuming, Stage Makeup, Hair Styling

This program is designed to build passion for, and experience in, all aspects of theatre. Under experienced and enthusiastic direction, Junior Players will rehearse for and perform a stage production within two weeks! As in the past, the capstone production will be performed on the final night of camp and is open to parents, family, and friends, as well as to the generally-interested and enthusiastically-supportive public. The last two years’ performances were incredible and impressive!

Goin’ Coastal! 4.1 – Live Audience Radio Variety Show featuring New York Times Best-selling author Pamela Smith Hill and special musical guests The Sawtooth Brothers | Sunday, September 11 at 7:00

$15 adults | $10 kids (5-18) | $18 at the door


Be part of WideSpot’s highly-anticipated season premiere of Goin’ Coastal!  Join the laughter, drama, and storytelling of Season 4, Episode 1, as our favorite residents of a charming and peaceful village (on Wisconsin’s groovy West Coast) do whatever it takes to keep it that way. Patty the postmistress might have the right stuff when it comes to being a good sleuth; but, in this episode her discoveries hit a little too close to home when her own father is being seduced by a gold digger! And things get a little messy for Floyd and Marlene when they’re paid a visit by efficiency experts.

Sawtooth for Goin Coastal 2

The Sawtooth Brothers

Fresh from their crowd-pleasing appearances at the Minnesota State Fair and the Great River Folk Fest in La Crosse, The Sawtooth Brothers will be the featured musical guests. This band is comprised of two sets of brothers, who’ve been strumming and harmonizing together as a foursome for eight years. From country classics and blue grass to gospel, the Brothers will have you grinning from ear to ear with their precision picking and original songs.
