SNC Honors Birder With Hall, Concert

Dudley Birder has shared his time and talents with northeast Wisconsin for more than 50 years. Now he will have his name attached to De Pere's St. Boniface Church.

The completely renovated building, located on the corner of Grant and Fourth streets, will be dedicated as Dudley Birder Hall.

A concert celebrating the dedication will be held at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 14 in the Walter Theatre, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus. The public concert will feature the Dudley Birder Chorale of St. Norbert College, the St. Norbert College Chamber Singers and the St. Norbert College Concert Choirs. Tickets for the concert are $15, available at the St. Norbert College Box Office, or online at, or by calling (920) 403-3950.

"This is a wonderful tribute to Dudley Birder and all he has meant to St. Norbert College and, really, the entire community," said St. Norbert College President Thomas Kunkel. "For more than half a century he has taught and influenced countless students and touched the lives of everyone in this region who loves music and musical theater. And since so much of his work has been devoted to sacred music, we think it is especially apt that the newest incarnation of this grand old church will be called Dudley Birder Hall."

40 Student Performers Get a "Workout" on Stage

Notre Dame Academy students' athleticism is stretching beyond the gym and onto the stage.

Leading a cast of 40 high school students - including a handful of lacrosse, soccer, and football players - director Teresa Schmidt and choreographer Andrea Hearden will stage four productions of Elton John and Tim Rice's Broadway hit, "AIDA" at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 15, 16, 22 and 23 in the Rev. Guy E. Guyon Auditorium at Notre Dame Academy, 610 Maryhill Dr., Green Bay.

Set in ancient times, "AIDA" chronicles a timeless, forbidden love and showcases the power of forgiveness, intensified through lighting, award-winning songs and fight scenes, which may explain why so many boys and first-time performers such as Marty Metzler, Sam Maedke and Dylan Heckert were drawn to audition.

"You typically don't see athletes in [high school] musicals, but not this one. It's a more athletic cast," says Metzler, a senior soccer player cast in multiple roles. "The rehearsals are intense, but it's a fun, cool experience and I'm happy I'm doing it."

Tickets go on sale Friday and can be purchased online for $12 adult, $6 student at or through the NDA box office by calling (920) 429-6127.
