The Machickanee Players’ current production, Scott Haan’s “Insane with Power,” is scheduled for the second and third weekends in February.

Described as a family friendly comedy, the play takes place in the visitation room of a local mental health institution where all the residents believe they are super heroes, complete with various “super” powers. The laughs begin when Speed Demon “runs” around the room backward, Dim Bulb relates how his powers came into being, Kevin sees other people in the room and Mental blurts out whatever random thoughts enter her head.

The comedy will be presented Feb. 9-11 and 16-18 at the Park Avenue Playhouse, 408 Park Ave., Oconto. The cast includes Chris Bellow, Kyle Patrick, Russ Johnson, Travis Rysewyk, Jenni Fabry and Mariah Engeldinger.

The productions will feature non-meal performances (Feb. 9 and 16), dinner shows (Feb. 10 and 17) and the popular pie matinees (Feb. 11 and 18). For ticket information, visit or the Players’ Facebook page, call 920-834-4353, or visit BayShore Books LLC, 302 Collins Ave., Oconto.
