An Evening With Me

An Evening With Me

For two nights and one afternoon, local theatre veteran Tom Zuehlke will take the stage at Inspiration Studios for An Evening With Me. Part stand up, part improvisation, with a lot of audience participation, Zuehlke will take the audience through six decades of life in Milwaukee through stories, pictures, and music. This special performance takes place January 17 and 18 (7:30pm) and January 19 (2:00pm) at Inspiration Studios, 1500 S. 73rd Street in West Allis.

How did Sister Claudine react when first grader Tom was printing left handed? Where did Tom’s ten nicknames come from (12, if you count variations)? How close have you been to a Stradivarius?  What does it mean to be a serial dater?

Zuehlke brings over 35 years of experience as Actor, Director, Producer and Playwright into creating a script for this once in a lifetime, never to be repeated event.

“The idea came to me last October while driving to Green Bay,” Zuehlke said. “I worked on several different formats—a straight 90 minute monologue (which put me to sleep); a stand-up comedy routine (which demonstrated my inability to write a joke); and a classic improvisation where anything and everything goes. What you will experience is a combination of all three…and more!”

The production is a fundraiser for Village Playhouse, the resident theatre company at Inspiration Studios, with which Zuehlke has been an active member since 1984.

“For a mere $20.20 (or $30.17 for special heckler seating), you get to bring in 2020 with me and support local community theatre,” adds Zuehlke. “We’ll have snacks and libations, a nightly auction of some very unique items, and a lot of fun. Seating for this show is very limited and sure to be standing-room-only, so make your reservations early. Come join me!”

An Evening With Me (Tom Zuehlke) runs Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18 at 7:30pm. A matinee will take place at 2:00pm on Sunday, January 19.  Performances are at Inspiration Studios, 1500 S. 73rd Street. Tickets can be purchased online at Will-Call seats can be reserved by calling (414)587-3474 or by emailing
