Baumeister Sodas and Diamonds and Gold present Let Me Be Frank Productions’ all-new comedy musical, “Booyah, Finger Road” this February. The first show of the 2019 season brings you back to the 1960s and the hottest church picnic in the area, The Holy Martyrs, or as we know it, the Finger Road Picnic.

“Booyah, Finger Road” opens Friday, February 1 with a benefit show for The Green Bay Historical Society; $10 of every ticket goes to this deserving organization in our community. “Booyah, Finger Road” then runs Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. February 1- 23. Matinee performances will take place on Thursday, February 21 and Saturday, February 23 at 1 p.m. at the Meyer Theatre.

How did “booyah” come to be? The story goes that it happened by accident from a misspelled word in the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Lester Rentmeester was looking for a little publicity for his church picnic (Holy Martyrs) and contacted the newspaper. Belgium-born Lester had a French accent and began talking about bouillon, but the reporter thought he said booyah, and voila! Booyah was born.

And that’s the only fact in this show!

As a young man, the Finger Road picnic was the event of the summer with all the fixings of a great party — beer, bands and babes. From the best bands to the best cake walk, the best raffles, and yes, girls from all the area high schools, anyone and everyone was there! Our story revolves around the secret recipe for booyah, handed down to Mr. Crab and his brother, Father Crab. Competing church picnics start to wonder why the Finger Road picnic is so popular. Well, it’s the booyah, duh! Secret spies try to steal the secret recipe kept in a glass bottle always close to Mr. Crab. Mr. Bowler Hatguy from Winchester Cathedral tries to trick the staff of the picnic to divulge the secret. Is the success of the picnic due to the booyah? The bands? The parishioners? Well, come and find out and laugh along the way. Great music from the 1960s in this show!

Cast: Frank Hermans (Father Frank), Talor Sohr (picnic attendee), Pat Hibbard (band leader), Amy Riemer (beer girl), Tom Verbrick (Mr. Crab), Lisa Borley (beer girl), Blake Hermans (picnic attendee), Michael O’Malley (Mr. Bowler Hatguy).

Band: Dennis Panneck (guitars), Pat Hibbard (bass), Tony Pilz (keyboards), Adam Cain (drums).
