The Birding Body

Sunday, September 20


1pm Doors //

2pm Show

» RSVP on Facebook
For the final performance of their year-long, 50-state tour, Oliver Bestul and Veronica Swanson’s latest play The Birding Body has been brought to the Pabst Theater! Written and illustrated by Milwaukee native Bestul and Minneapolitan Swanson, this 45-minute murder mystery will have you cocking your head and cackling in your seat! No matter the number of Agatha Christie stories or episodes of Columbo you’ve enjoyed, you’ve never seen a case cracked quite like this!

The performance is on Sunday, September 20, and will cost $15.00 per person to attend. Each ticket will include a signed copy of the script, a tour patch, and the new magazine Wishbone, a $15 dollar value, while supplies last. The doors will open at 1:00pm, and the performance will begin at 2:00pm.

As you’re finding your seat for this unique theater experience, you’ll receive your own mini case file of illustrations. This will give you a closer look at each of the clues uncovered by Bestul’s peculiar protagonist, Detective Peterson. Can you crack the case yourself before the detective and his unlikely assistant (played by Bestul and Swanson)? It’s time you start asking yourself whodunit!

There are several ticket resellers and secondary markets selling tickets to our events. Ticket resellers often try to mimic our website to appear legitimate. However, the ONLY official website for The Pabst Theater Group venues is www.pabsttheater.org. Please note: we set up occasional offers through sites including, but not limited to: Groupon, Goldstar, official artist websites and their official fan clubs. If you have any questions regarding the legitimacy of a secondary outlet selling tickets to our shows, please call our box office directly at 414-286-3205.

If you are interested in an event that has already sold out, please sign up to become an eMember and follow us on social media – we will announce any releases through those channels. Do not buy from a third party or ticket scalping company.

Purchasing tickets from any other seller or website runs a very high risk of receiving fraudulent and/or invalid tickets.
