2015 - 2016 Season: The Good Fight

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12

Dear Friends,

Enter the ring with Acacia as we engage a debate about life and God between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis, then a battle of faith and science in Autonomy, and finally a fight to stay together in the musical comedy I Do! I Do! Stretch your minds and hearts in this season of the Good Fight!

Janet Peterson
Artistic Director

Both Acacia and Morning Star Productions wanted to present the first show of the season, Freud’s Last Session, so rather than fight about it, we are collaborating on a co-production in Morning Star’s space at Eastbrook Church.

Also we are changing our evening times this season from 8:00 to 7:30. Many have requested this and we’ve decided to give it a try.

Freud’s Last Session

October 2-November 1, 2015

Tickets for all shows can be purchased by clicking here.

Freud’s Last Session will be presented in the performance space of Eastbrook Church at 5385 N. Green Bay Ave. in Milwaukee.

A hit in New York, Chicago, and L.A., Freud’s Last Session makes its Milwaukee premiere in a co-production of Acacia and Morning Star. On the day England enters WWII, Dr. Sigmund Freud invites C.S. Lewis to his London home. The debate is friendly but the stakes are high as Freud and Lewis clash about love, the existence of God and the meaning of life, “with both humor and insight in abundance.” – NY1 TV

Eight years ago, Marney Rampart, a renowned physicist, author and atheist, announced she would write a book that disproves God. Two years after its expected release, everyone is still waiting, including her Christian opponent in an upcoming televised debate. Why won’t Marney give them the book? Is it even finished? Witty, compassionate and profound, Autonomy is a front row seat to the fight of faith – for, against, and undecided.

I Do! I Do!

Recipient of seven Tony nominations, this timeless and intimate musical follows the marriage of Michael and Agnes, from wedding night jitters, to the thrills of parenthood, through the threat of infidelity, culminating in a rich relationship worth fighting for. “At once amusing, astonishingly touching and truly endearing.” – New York Post

Fish Eyes

December 5th, 2015 at 4 PM


An encore performance of last season’s smash featuring the “dynamic duo” of Matt Koester and David Sapiro with “jaunty and plaintive” fiddling by Therese Goode (Journal Sentinel). The eternal story of Jesus is seen through the eyes of two fishers-of-men, Peter and Andrew, an odd pair who banter about what Jesus means as they strive to follow his call.
