Donors like Barbara and Spencer Gould are our HEROES. (Here's Barbara two years ago, cutting the ribbon on the theater named after her! ✂️ ) We couldn't do it without them--literally--or without any of you generous people who give your time and money to help make Northern Sky go.
If you'd like to join their ranks, here's where you can do it!

You done learned pretty good!!!!
Seems like a solid technique. Rich Higdon, what’s your expert opinion?
You may have heard after this last Sunday’s game that Aaron Rodgers “still owns the Bears.”
And that got us wondering…what about Space Bears?

Would love to see you bring back “Packer Fans from Outer Space”? One of the funniest and I’m sure you could find a way to incorporate Aaron’s quote

LOL, "math"? I always thought they were singing, "meh", or a random "maa"" note. 😄 Thanks for explaining!
It was such fun! SO glad I was able to see the show in person!!! Poor punctuation I know 🙂
Great show and the live back off sampling was worth it!
I’m watching while in my show!!!!

Throwback Thursday: Here’s the autograph Katie Dahl got from Jeff Herbst in 1995, when Katie was 12 and Jeff was…14. He hasn’t changed a bit, has he? (See largely obscured silhouette on my Jeff and Katie Show shirt for proof).
Jeff and Katie host The Jeff and Katie (we all know it is really The Katie and Jeff) Show live on Saturday at 3 pm CDT in the Gould Theater . You can stream it or come in person. One of those options will allow you to actually taste the bake-off cookies; you guess which one. 🍪
Oh, and one more thing: tune into the Northern Sky Facebook at 4 pm today for a little live preview of the show! (And Molly’s Middletown Meetup will happen on Friday instead of Thursday this week.) ... See MoreSee Less

You know what show is running in the Gould right now? That's right, "Naked Radio." We wanted you all to get in on the show action, and we figured the best way to do that was to encourage you all to show us your radios! (You should stay fully clothed for the display, of course!)

Loved loved loved the show!!! So good to he back in the northern sky fold!!!
Loved this show and we love the Gould! Bonus: just 2 minutes away from Countryside Cottages, where we were staying. 😉
Loved the show. Can’t wait to watch the streaming version!
Great show! We’re back this week for another chance to see it again🙂
Loved the show!
Wonderful, wonderful show.
Go Pack Go!
Did you enjoy Chase Stoeger in "Dad's Season Tickets" as the one non-Packer-backer character? (Remember, we can still love the ACTOR even if their character didn't love the Packers.)
Chase is onstage now in "Naked Radio." But not TODAY, of course, because it's Packer Sunday! 💚 🏈 💛 ... See MoreSee Less
Love both of those plays!
Yup We enjoy Chase in everything he preforms in
Naked Radio is one of the best!

Great show lastnight. We were all blown away with how you all can remember all your lines and perform musically along with as well. Really great performance and writing. 👍👍
Molly we came Monday and Tuesday again amazed at all of your performances! Still laughed at it all!
These are so funny, you are so talented. Play was hilarious!!
Good job, everyone! From left to right, that's Karen Mal, Suzanne Graff, Chris Irwin, Fred Alley, and Doc Heide. Not sure whether they were rehearsing Lumberjacks in Love, Northern Lights, or Tongue 'n Cheek--but it's one of those!
It must have been “tongue and cheek”. I don’t think Fred played harmonica in the other two shows.
Fred and Doc for sure
Lumberjacks in love?
Northern light? Lauren Ann, Hannah Fred doc and I’m not sure of the bass player
And Chris and Karen.
Chris Irwin, Suzanne Graff?
The Possum Trot?

Well, now we really need to know! Such a great show! 😊
I think it keeps track of who brings treats! C’mon Shawn, pick up the slack!
C'mon Alissa, you can do it! 😉
Is Alissa really behind or abstaining out of principle?
Flubs on stage?? Missed cues??
My guess would be making each other laugh. We went the other night and there seemed to be a little improv going on

I believe my sister and I were in that one.... The Passage?
Someone in that group is singing "Pull the Chain", aren't they?
I believe we are singing, “Balls of Yarn.” My favorite choral moment in the show.
Me too! One of my faves for sure. Pull the Chain!!!! and the song with the women about communicating in spite of the language barriers. Gives me goosebumps. (Not at home, can’t check the song title.) So wish Fred had stuck around to write part two 😔
Photo is only missing Alex Sowinski and Rachel Sowinski and the cast from the Passage would be complete!
Some of my favorite people on the planet in this photo. 😘❤ And now "Pull the Chain" is stuck in my head! 😅
Me! Me! But I want to give someone else a chance 😎
Did you know we sell Twinkies after every "Naked Radio" show?
