4pm - Registration begins/Exhibitor check-in
8pm – Showcase Performance of Leaving Iowa, directed by Andrew Stoltenberg and produced by Badger High School. Presented by Badger High School at the Middleton Performing Arts Center.

A loving ode to the great American road trip, Leaving Iowa finds middle-aged writer, Don Browning, on a quest to take his father’s ashes to Don’s childhood home. When Don discovers Grandma's house is now a grocery store, he begins traveling across Iowa searching for a proper resting place for his father. This father-and-son road trip shifts smoothly from the present to Don's memories of the annual, torturous vacations of his childhood. Leaving Iowa is a postcard to anyone who has ever found himself or herself driving alone on a road, revisiting fond memories of his or her youth. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
