“Fishwrap” chronicles a small-town newspaper’s struggles against local corruption and the financial hardships posed by the rise of online news. Based on Bromley’s experiences in 17 years writing for Sauk County’s daily newspaper, the Baraboo News Republic, “Fishwrap” tells the story of a newspaper staff fighting internal corporate politics as they seek to break a major story. Meanwhile, they strive to keep the paper in the black as readers forsake paid subscriptions to read news online for free. Along the way, Bromley’s clever characters act out the hilarious, truth-is-funnier-than-fiction experiences he has witnessed in a local newsroom.

Our Story:The Artists for the Al are a group or local artists who are getting together to create a way to help the Al Ringling Theatre in its restoration. We took our motivation from the local students who do a Give Back Concert every year. This is our way to have the "Adults" give back to our gem of a theatre.
