Cudahy Carolers Say ‘Farewell’ … For Now

“The Cudahy Carolers have given Milwaukee theater-goers some fantastic memories over the years. Asked what they recall from shows past, Chris Flieller shared one of his favorite stories. “The second season we did the show, a group of ladies from the then-Cudahy Mayor’s office ordered a group of tickets. They had seen the show the year before and loved it.

So there he sat in the front row, slouched down, arms folded across his chest. The show started. Within ten minutes, he was sitting straight, leaning forward with tears streaming down his face from laughing so hard.” That’s the kind of reaction that so many audiences have had over the years.
