Heartwarming Musicals Under the Stars
in Peninsula State Park June 11 - Aug 29, 2015

Announcing the 2015 musical comedy line up for our 25th Anniversary Season in Door County, Wisconsin. Northern Sky Theater will present three shows in repertory during the summer with two world premieres.

No Bones About It, a "rib-tickling" new musical set in the world of competitive barbecue, is the sixth offering from the Richard Rogers award-winning writing team of Dave Hudson and Paul Libman, the creators of Cheeseheads, the Musical and Muskie Love.

When Butter Churns to Gold, written by new collaborators Peter Welkin, Ron Barnett, and Randi Wolfe, brings a "dash of dastardly deeds and dairy delights" to the stage.

"It's fitting that we celebrate our new era as Northern Sky by doing what we do best," noted AFT's managing director Dave Maier. "Offering up two brand new hilarious musicals is our way of doubling down on the mission to create shows that our fans know were written for them and their families."

Back for a second summer, Strings Attached, written by Dave Hudson and Colin Welford, is a comic tale of mistaken identity set in a Northern Wisconsin lodge.

Northern Sky's Summer Season runs from June 11th - August 29th at the Peninsula State Park Amphitheater in Fish Creek, WI. There is no park sticker required up to one hour before the performances.

“One of the most exceptional professional troupes in the country, and, for many, as much a Door County tradition as homemade cherry preserves.” - Chicago Tribune

AFT Audience watching Cheeseheads The Musical

In our little corner of the woods, those ominous rumblings about the Death of American Musical Theatre are drowned out by the footfalls of 40,000 loyal fans strolling down the path in Fish Creek's Peninsula State Park each summer to laugh and cry with our merry players under the newborn stars. Thousands more join us each season for our intimate Fall Season shows presented at the Door Community Auditorium.
