May 3, 0014 All shows beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Middleton High School Performing Arts Center, 2100 Bristol Street, Middleton, WI

Step back to the 1960’s. A time of soulful, bluesy Motown sounds. The only thing bigger than music was hair; the only thing bigger than hair was mounting racial tensions in Baltimore. Where change for the better never seemed to happen fast enough. Enter Tracy Turnblad. While Tracy’s journey begins with earning a spot on the Corny Collins Show, she realizes there’s more to life. In an era when segregation is the norm, Hairspray focuses on issues of integration, inclusion, and following your heart. As we honor the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, share the lesson that showing compassion to our neighbors is beneficial for all of us.

Heroes Behind the Badge: Sacrifice & Survival

May 19, 0014 7:00pm

Middleton Performing Arts Center, 2100 Bristol St, Middleton WI 53562
The Middleton WI Police Department is excited to partner with Modern City Entertainment to present "Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival," a full-length documentary film, directed by British Academy Award winner Wayne Derrick. The film features harrowing stories of fallen officers and focuses on incredibly inspiring stories of those who have been critically injured in the line of duty and have survived against all odds. Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival not only tells the stories of brave officers who have laid down their lives in the line of duty, but also stories of the countless officers each year who are physically disabled, many of them permanently, in violent confrontations.

This event is open to the public and law enforcement officers and family and friends of officers are all encouraged to attend. Proceeds from this community event, as well as any tax-deductible donations made during this event, will be given to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (http://www.nleomf.com) and the Wisconsin Concerns of Police Survivors (http://www.wicops.org)

WHAT SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING AFTER SEEING THE MOVIE

- "A humbling and awakening film"
- "Thank you for opening my mind. I can never take a police officer for granted again."
- "About time we recognize our heroes."
- "It humanized officers and their families in a very real way."
- "This file touched my heart. There wasn't a dry eye in the house."
