Local Musical Talent ~ Local, Original Musical Works

2017 Gala Weekend ~ November 3,4,5

  10th Street Theater 628 N 10th St. Milwaukee 


OSMOSIS looked like many other shows: Great songs with solos and ensemble pieces. But there was more to it than meets the eye as host Beth Lewinski took us on a musical and comedic tour. Every song you heared was picked because it played with the ideas in one particular story — our mystery story. A panel of guessers, unlike the audience did not know the answer to the story. The panel, including playwright and musician Jason Powell, actors Liz Norton, Christie Burgess and Chris Flieller were given clues by the 12 players with maybe an occasional wrong turn here and there provided. Did they get it? Well you had to be there to find out! Pure Entertaining Comedic and Musical fun!

LIZ NORTON and Friends Cast

An unique show that was not to be missed, Liz Norton appeared in a one-off cabaret performance for MMV. Liz played the feisty college professor in MMV’s Spring production of Jason Powell’s ONLY WE KNOW BEST. Liz was recently seen in the Chicago production of A NEW BRAIN at Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre. She spent her summer playing the title role in HELLO DOLLY at Sunset Playhouse receiving strong reviews including: “Liz Norton is a powerful presence on stage as the cunningly compassionate matchmaker, Dolly Levi." "Everything comes back to (Liz) Norton as Dolly. The spotlight loves her, and she returns that affinity with an inimitable, engaging style." Up next, Liz takes on the Countess Aurelia (the Madwoman of Chaillot) in Jerry Herman’s DEAR WORLD with Boulevard Theatre at the end of the month.
