Currently in our 33rd season, we are proud to be the oldest dinner theater group in northeast Wisconsin. In 1983, Victoria Bostedt (Oconto’s current mayor), had a dream of bringing live theater to the area—and The Machickanee Players came to be. In the beginning, we had no venue to call our own; we were more of a ‘traveling show’. This did not hold us back, however. Our first production, M*A*S*H, was performed to sold-out audiences, and our 1984-85 season featured our first dinner-theater production when ‘Plaza Suite’ was performed at the Sandalwood Country Club in Abrams.
