Our 87th Season
Regarding our 87th Season...
The Sheboygan Theatre Company takes the health and safety of our patrons and volunteers very seriously. STC recognizes the importance of keeping our patrons informed as we navigate these challenging times. Following recommended guidelines, and to ensure the utmost safety of our patrons and volunteers, the Sheboygan Theatre Company Advisory Committee made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall 2020 performances of Kinky Boots (October) and Elf the Musical (December).
This decision has not been made lightly. No matter what may happen in the world around us, STC strives to achieve our mission to produce quality community theatre involving diverse participants and audiences in a broad range of theatrical opportunities that entertain and educate. We are grateful for the donors, sponsors and volunteers passionately contributing to keep the Arts alive in our community.
As we prepare for a longer intermission than anticipated, STC and Studio Players embrace opportunities to grow and innovate, bringing theatrical experiences to life through digital platforms via Facebook (@STCshows) and YouTube (Sheboygan Theatre Company). The foundation of theater was built on creativity, entertainment, and community – and through continued virtual programming and live events where social distancing can be maintained, STC, alongside Studio Players, will continue to provide a theatrical outlet for the Sheboygan community.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to move forward together. Stay healthy, stay safe, and we will see you in the audience for STC’s 87th Season featuring Death of a Salesman (February 2021) and Seussical (May 2021).

The 2020-21 Season Shows
Death of a Salesman – February 2021
The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
Seussical – May 2021
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
