Community Theater to present a spring murder mystery during April|
Council re-assigns Edison Club's lease
|Antigo Community Theatre will present its spring play, “Ten Feet From the Source of the Heat,’’ opening Thursday, April 16 and running through Sunday, April 19.|
ACT has teamed up with local author Bridget Strasser to debut her delightful, original, murder mystery. The play is under the direction of veteran ACT member, Darlaen Jansen.
The story takes place in the upper Midwest during the notorious 1930s. Tissue Paper heiress Ann Lane is determined in spite of her family’s wealth to venture out on her own. While Ann rents a home from friendly widow Estelle Dooley, she meets a variety of local neighbors. She is barely settled into her new home when a horrible murder takes place and the quiet neighborhood is thrown into chaos. Detective Stewart is called in on the case, but has his work cut out for him as a couple of notorious gangsters have also arrived in town. Ann’s spoiled little sister, Miranda, shows up unannounced to add to the confusion. This rollicking “who done it?’’ is guaranteed to entertain all.
Performances will be held at the Volm Theater at Antigo High School April 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 19 at 2 p.m. The Salvation Army will

The Antigo Common Council Tuesday approved a new short-term lease agreement for the city-owned Edison Club Event Center, allowing the facility to remain open under new management as it seeks a long-term renter.
Aero Keys LLC, which operated the downtown dining and entertainment facility, has entered into a voluntary termination agreement of its lease effective Tuesday, and is working with Mayor Bill Brandt and city attorney Mike Winter to bring its obligations for the business current.
The company relinquished its various licenses needed to operate the club and aldermen awarded them to a newly-formed company, Marcody LLC, doing business as Edison Club Event Center. The list includes a Class B fermented malt beverage and intoxicating liquor, dance hall and amusement device permits.
Principals in the venture are Marcus Welnetz and Cody Resch, both of Antigo.
Aldermen also approved a resolution approving a short-term rental agreement with Marcody LLC beginning today in order to continue operation of the business and fulfill the event bookings that have been made.
The lease, which will initially be for three months, will run on a month-to-month
