Northern Sky Theater announces Creative Kids Day for 2017
 
For more than a decade now, Northern Sky Theater has offered a day of creativity dedicated to children and teens interested in learning more about what it means to be part of a professional musical theater troupe in Door County.
 
Over the years, hundreds of youth have taken advantage of the opportunity to look behind the scenes, play theater games on the amphitheater stage, join in on cast sing-a-longs, and sneak a rare peak inside the Northern Sky dressing rooms.
 
This year, led by veteran company member and Associate Artistic Director Molly Rhode, participants will gain the additional experience of learning a song, dance and scene from "Oklahoma in Wisconsin" with the end result of performing a short bit for their family and friends.
 
"Molly brings a wealth of experience from her background with Milwaukee's First Stage Theatre Academy where she spent several years in children's theatre education," stated Holly Feldman, Director of Development and Public Relations.

"Oklahoma in Wisconsin" is nostalgically set in the 1950s. The Matthew Levine score features a mix of period "rock, doo-wop and even a good hoedown at one point," Northern Sky artistic director Jeff Herbst said. There will be plenty of period music and lingo for the kids to explore during the workshop.
 
Children and teens ages 6 to 16 will have the option of choosing one of two sessions taking place on Friday, July 14th: 9:30 AM until Noon or 1:00 until 3:30 PM. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Admission to the event is $25 per child. A state park sticker is required to attend this event. Each participant also receives a t-shirt that they can have signed by the cast and crew.
 
Northern Sky Theater is a non-profit professional theatre organization that produces original musical shows in repertory from June through August. Northern Sky continues its performances into the fall as they move indoors September through October.
