  "Oklahoma in Wisconsin" kicks off
Northern Sky season

Feature by Mike Shaw, Green Bay Press-Gazette  

1950s: Elvis was King of new-fangled rock 'n roll; cold war was raging; dozen eggs = 60¢.
Our summer world premiere, Oklahoma in Wisconsin, is set in 1954. Richard Castle (book and lyrics) and Matthew Levine (music) have written a charming homage to Door County with a musical that highlights the quirkiness of a family-run inn during the 1950s. When a Hollywood
scout pays a visit, the result is the birth of the tourist fish boil and
the humorous clash of big city and small town culture.

Inside the Show: "Oklahoma in Wisconsin" Video on YouTube 
An inside look at the process of creating Northern Sky's original musical, "Oklahoma in Wisconsin." Interview with Artistic Director Jeff Herbst plus rehearsal footage.

"Oklahoma in Wisconsin makes good on what the characters here will expressly suggest, time and again: Life really is best when it's lived as though we're in a musical!" - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Reviewer Mike Fischer

  Harmonizing Together with "Victory Farm" 
1940s: WWII defined the decade; Germany was divided post-war; dozen eggs = 33¢.
Victory Farm, by Katie Dahl, Emilie Coulson, and James Valcq, is set in
1944. There are certain shows that light a fuse and immediately are launched into the canon of favorites. Victory Farm certainly rocketed into that category and now makes its first return to the summer stage since its world premiere in our 2012 season.

"The amazing through-sung number in Victory Farm entitled 'Hand Over Hand' runs more than 10 minutes - and among the best ten minutes on stage I've experienced during any of the 100-plus productions I've seen thus far this year, in theaters ranging from New York to San Francisco." - Reviewer Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 

Victory Farm Logo Victory Farm 2017 Molly Rhode, Doug Mancheski, and Eva Nimmer recreate the American roles they've played before: Edna, Jack, and Dottie. The German trio of POWs, Josef, Karl, and Wolfgang, are played by Chase Stoeger, Isaiah Spetz, and Jeff Herbst. Jon Hegge returned to direct the show with Kelly Doherty assisting.

Purchase tickets online or call our box office at 920-854-6117 Monday - Friday 10AM - 4PM and Saturday 10AM - 2PM. The Victory Farm CD is also available to purchase online or at the theater. Victory Farm plays Tuesdays and Saturdays at 8pm.
  "Doctor! Doctor!" is back and on CD   

1930s: The Great Depression impacted the world; commercial TV was born; dozen eggs = 44¢.
Doctor! Doctor!, with book, lyrics, and music by Matt Zembrowski, is set in 1938. This charming tribute to small-town life in Door County, where residents reluctantly but humorously adapt to change, returns for a second season after its world premiere last summer.

"Often playful and always entertaining, it can also dig deep in exploring what one song proclaims: it's hard to be lonely." - Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

You can buy the Original Cast Recording of our 2016 hit musical "Doctor! Doctor!" online and at our theater!
