From St. Norbert College, January 27, 2021
by Mike Counter,, 920-362-8864

Knight Theatre, St. Norbert College’s student-run theatre troupe, will present “Knight Theatre Through the Years,” a showcase of audience favorites from the group’s Broadway musical productions over the past three decades. Performances will be held at the Walter Theatre in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus as well as virtually via livestream. Thursday, Feb. 4, and Friday, Feb. 5, shows will be held at 7:30 p.m., and the matinee performance on Saturday, Feb. 6, will be held at 2 p.m.
When pandemic restrictions changed Knight Theatre’s plans for a fully-staged show, the group’s student leadership team became determined to find a way to mount a production while keeping actors, staff and crew physically distanced, safe and healthy. The group’s creativity brings audiences “Knight Theatre Through the Years,” a cabaret-style show featuring selections from shows presented over the group’s 27-year history. The production follows the cast as it reminisces about simpler times, before face masks and social distancing were the norm. As they sing and dance their way through memories of Knight Theatre’s past, actors come to realize that, although many things in modern life have changed, the truly important things that tie us together remain the same.
St. Norbert College Knight Theatre is a student organization dedicated to staging a musical theatre production each year, with a month-long rehearsal schedule that culminates in several public performances. Every aspect of the show is coordinated and performed by St. Norbert students - from actors and pit musicians to designers, directors and producers. Knight Theatre productions play to hundreds of audience members each year.
