This year's show is all about the Stoughton Bake-off competition which had been won by Ole's Aunt Hilda so many times that they cancelled it. Now that she has passed away, all the townspeople are searching for her winning recipe... in all the wrong places. Further complications enter from Stoughton's crack team of investigative reporters looking for a scoop on a big secret that will make a big splash in town. You can expect ridiculous, not-too-bright characters, unbelievable plot twists and lots of joking about Stoughton and Norwegians.

Stoughton Village Players is happy to present the cast for its new, original (and ridiculous) production for Stoughton’s Syttende Mai celebration: Lena Takes the Cake or Man With the Saggin’ Tattoo (directed by Tony Hill and Gary Smithback).

We are happy to provide a state of the art assistive listening system for patrons with hearing loss. The theater is now equipped with a magnetic induction loop system that broadcasts digital sound wirelessly to hearing aids.

  • Hearing aids with a telecoil (T-coil), simply push the button on your aid.
  • Hearing aids without a T-coil, ask an usher to supply you with a headset for your use.

Hearing loop system is supported by grants from Dane Arts with additional funds from the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation and the Bryant Foundation.
