‘One Night with McGivern’ coming to Weill Center

JOHN McGIVERN JOHN McGIVERN Tickets are on sale now for “One Night with John Mc- Givern” presented by the Sheboygan Optimist Club and sponsored by Kohler Credit Union.

McGivern, a master storyteller and two-time Emmy Award winning host of the PBS series Around the Corner with John McGivern, will perform on Saturday, April 28 at 7 p.m. at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts.

John’s one-man-shows, The Early Stories of John Mc- Givern, Midsummer Night Mc- Givern, and John McGivern’s Home for the Holidays tell the stories of being the third born of six kids in a working-class Irish Catholic family in Milwaukee. His stories are personal and funny and touching and familiar. His themes are based in family and remind us all that as specific as we might believe our experiences are, we all share a universal human experience.

As a stage actor, Mc- Givern’s work includes Shear Madness, The Wonder Bread Years, Fully Committed, and A Kodachrome Christmas.

He performed at the inaugural We’re Funny That Way! comedy festival in 1997, and appeared in the festival’s documentary film in 1998.

Reserved seats for the April 28 Sheboygan performance start at $21 and can be purchased at the Weill Center box office, 826 N. Eighth St., Sheboygan or on their website at www.weillcenter.com

The Sheboygan Optimist Club’s projects focus on service to kids in the Sheboygan community. Back to School Basics, the club’s flagship event for the past 22 years, provides free school supplies to Sheboygan students whose families cannot afford them. Other club projects include handson events at Mead Library Children’ s Room and Longfellow Elementary School, and funding Optimist

Park improvements.

“We’re excited to host One Night with John McGivern in such a beautiful venue,” stated Laurel Schirmer, event chairperson for the Optimist Club. “What better way to raise money that’s used to support events for kids in our community — a great night of family-friendly comedy by a regional treasure like John!”
