The Wisconsin Family Business Forum at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will provide family business owners a unique look at the way family businesses change and develop over the decades during a unique presentation from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center.
Owners of family businesses at all phases of growth will benefit from a dramatization of “The Perils of Pauline’s Family Business,” a lighthearted but serious play that depicts the evolving dynamics of an entrepreneurial family through snapshots at three Thanksgiving dinners: 1956, 1986 and 1996. After each act, the audience gathers table by table to address the situation and discuss possible courses of action. At one point, the audience controls the outcome — and the actors improvise according to their wishes.
The event begins at 5 p.m. with appetizers. The production will begin at 6 p.m.
