Carol Adams, who began her acting career on the Port Washington stage, has come back to Wisconsin to perform in a soul-wrenching, one-woman play

When she was 8 years old, Carol Adams took a seat in the auditorium to watch her father in “Oliver” in the Port Washington summer theater.

Then she saw children singing in the show.

“I thought, I could do that,” she said.

Upset that Ed Adams didn’t include his daughter who was a little shy as a child, Carol auditioned and made the cut the following year for “The Music Man.”

She would do hundreds of auditions in the next several decades, but this one — her first — stood out.

“I still remember the audition I did. I sang ‘Hello Dolly,’” she said.

Now an accomplished actress, the 1979 Port graduate and Oregon resident has returned to Wisconsin to perform a one-woman Holocaust drama in Milwaukee this week called “Blonde Poison” with similarities to today’s Syrian refugee crisis. The play details the true story of Stella Goldschlag, a Jewish teenager trapped in Nazi Germany who was faced with nearly impossible life-or-death decisions that led to the death of hundreds of fellow Jews.
