A Nebraska native and veteran performer is bringing her experiences with Scientology to the forefront when her solo show “Squeeze My Cans” opens on Thursday in Sturgeon Bay. Cathy Schenkelberg, a popular voice-over artist who also appeared on Chicago Fire and The Bozo Show, was a member of Scientology for 14 years before leaving the church in 2009. The show explores the twists and turns her life makes during her journey, including the harassment she faced when she left. During her travels around the world performing the show, Schenkelburg says she has been able to connect with young people about their own run-ins with Scientology.
Schenkelburg’s show opens on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with a “pay what you can” performance benefitting Help of Door County and runs through the weekend at home of Rogue Theater, the Jaycee Clubhouse in Sturgeon Bay. You can find more information about this show here.
