Cast spotlight on Dan Klarer! 🔦 Yay, Dan!

You may have seen Dan on any number of Door County stages since 2006. He started out in Peninsula State Park with Northern Sky and this summer is back in the Park as George Sutter in "Tongue 'n Cheek" (plus as our costume coordinator!). Dan is based in Chicago, but has worked all across America--and he received his master’s degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow!

You can read more about Dan on page 81 of our virtual playbill:

Sheila I have never seen Dan perform. Not even at Drury Lane near Chicago where they draw so many well-known actors. I saw Ragtime there and it was phenomenal!

Saw the show tonight & he was awesome as usual! So good to be back in the audience watching live theater!

I ❤️ Dan!!

Bravo Dan!👏👏👍🍻🍻

Dan enjoy your self and be happy. 💕

Absolutely terrific on stage and in-person!! 💚 💛 🍪

Miss your sweet face Danny. I’m hoping to see you when we’re in Door on Aug. 20-21!

Dan Klarer is the chamPEEN and the champagne of men. He is bubbly, intoxicating, sweet, and high class. Also, he can fight, and that's bonus in my book.

Love watching him preform. One of my favorites.

Yay, Dan!

Yay Dan!!

Well, we are grateful to you, Tony and Judy. Let's all thank them for their generosity, shall we?

Door County theater lovers might remember Amy Chaffee or Jeff Mills for their many collective years of work with Northern Sky and Door Shakespeare over the years. Next week, they're coming back to the peninsula to present The Ecstatic Actor Workshop Door County WI. 🎉

Chaffee and Mills are both renowned theatre teachers who will lead workshop participants through two days of playful, embodied exploration. After months of quarantine, performing artists have expressed the need to strengthen their creative and collaborative muscle memory. As we step into this post pandemic moment, we can explore new transformational avenues, rekindle personal inspiration and practice deep collaboration.

Such a fabulous show and excellent talent! We missed being in the park and it's great to be back! Thank you

Saw this production this week— so wonderful to be at the theater again and enjoy live performance!

Can’t wait!! Will be there Friday and Saturday night!!! So excited!! I am Anna Cline’s Aunt Susie!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Loved the show!

Really enjoyed the play. Also saw The Fisherman’s Daughters this summer. Great to have live theater back.

Would love to see this show. In a normal NS summer schedule, I would be able to see 2-3 plays in my DC stay. Please add this to the 2022 season as I will miss this play. 💕

A Frankenstein wig. A jar of skippy peanut butter. A pool noodle. A flashlight. A ukulele. Two guys with big dreams, hilariously scuttled.

"Not Even Remotely" is a laugh-a-minute romp of a show, and it's our first-ever summer show indoors in our new Gould Theater. We couldn't imagine a better show to start our summer indoor tradition than this show, written by Richard Carsey and Stephen Kovacs for this precise moment in time.

Did you get your tickets yet? "Not Even Remotely" plays every night except Sunday through August 7.

What a thrill to see "Tongue 'n Cheek" (Fred Alley's first book musical) onstage again at Peninsula State Park, 30 years after it first premiered there. And with this snazzy new cast and crew, too! 🎉

Come see the fine work of (standing, L-R) Andrew Crowe, Isaiah Spetz, Jamie Mercado, Lachrisa Grandberry, Anna Cline, Dan Klarer; (kneeling, L-R) Hayden Hoffman, Shawn Galligan, and Jeff Herbst. They are so great!

Plus, find out how to make pancakes so thin they've only got one side, and answer the age-old question: are any cows actually milked in the course of the play, or do they just come home as people are waltzing to the farm radio? 🥞 🐄📻

Just watched it tonight...it was amazing. Nothing beats live theater, but this came close.

It was great! Saw it while I was up visiting from Kansas City. My kids loved the music! (And even tried joining at one point 😬)

Thank you for the reminder!

Saw tonight, excellent as always! 👏🏻

Goody, Goody! I can't make it in person this year. Thanks for this opportunity!

Where too start? Wonderful story and characters. Acting, never a false note even with close ups. And the songs and the singing and the band. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to send money.

Huzzah!

OPENING DAY (TIMES THREE!). This photo was taken 30 years ago this month. A lot has stayed the same since then: we are performing in the same beautiful amphitheater, we're bringing back this very show (Tongue 'n Cheek, our first book musical), and work from three of the folks in this photo will be on our stage this summer (Jeff Herbst [standing in back] as an actor and director, Doc Heide [right, with guitar] as an actor, and the late Fred Alley [seated, with crutch] as an author).

But 30 years ago, could these youngsters ever have anticipated that in 2021:

- our remount of Tongue 'n Cheek (opening in the Park tonight) would feature five brand-new actors, some of whom hadn't even been *born* yet when this photo was taken?

- OR that we'd have created a brand-new show called Not Even Remotely (opening in the Gould tonight) that would play in our brand-new beautiful indoor space, sitting on land that these actors knew simply as "that woods across from the Greenwood Supper Club"?

- OR that a little 8-year-old girl who had her very first Northern Sky experience watching this show would grow up to write her own show, “The Fisherman's Daughters” (opening its online run tonight)? "What's 'online' mean?," these 1991-ers would certainly have asked.

🌲

Thirty years on, what a crazy, wonderful ride it's been. Happy Opening Night (x3), Northern Sky! Break a leg.

Here’s Meredith Coulson-Kanter, working the Northern Sky box office with Ken Boyd circa 1997. Meredith was a longtime volunteer for the company before becoming our house manager for several years. She’s not the only Coulson with ties to Northern Sky—her sister Hannah appeared onstage in 1997’s production of “Northern Lights,” and her sister Emilie co-wrote “Victory Farm.” And now, along with her husband Chris, Meredith owns The White Gull Inn.

In addition to their world-famous breakfasts, fish boils, and accommodations, The White Gull (previously owned by Meredith’s parents, Jan and Andy) has sponsored Northern Sky shows for as long as just about anybody can remember. Three cheers for The White Gull!

(We hope they don’t mind too much that one of the main components of the character John Murphy in “The Fisherman’s Daughters” is that he often mistakes gulls for other white birds! 🕊)

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: FILMED SHOWS!

Here's the cast and crew of "The Fisherman's Daughters" backstage during one of the show's rainout nights this season. In a normal year, rain is just one of the many reasons (vacation timing, distance, jotnar attacks) someone might miss a Northern Sky show.

This has never happened before, and it may never happen again after 2021, so we hope you'll avail yourself of this incredible opportunity. Each of our 2021 in-person shows will be offered via high-quality, streamed videorecording (recorded live in front of an audience) for just *one week* after each show closes.

Northern Sky Theater

Cast spotlight on Chase Stoeger! 🔦

You might know Chase as the friendly face on our Mancheski Minute videos, or staring out from the Northern Guy calendar, or crocheting his signature Chase-made hats, or--so far this summer--as Charlie the delivery guy in "The Fisherman's Daughters." He's been at Northern Sky going on fifteen years, believe it or not!

Three cheers for Chase! Read more about him on page 76 of our virtual playbill:

Wonderful actor. Saw the show last night and he did a great job. Thanks Chase.🎶😊

He is one of my favorite actors and he has a very cute wife (also a favorite actress) and daughter.

You are great in the show.

We love Chase!

LOVED your portrayal of the character Chase!

Look at those smiling faces and their incredible eyewear! 👓 Doug, Nadja, and Alex are preparing to make “Not Even Remotely” remote no longer—we started rehearsals for this show’s in-person iteration this week! We open in the Gould July 12. This show’s future is so bright, we’ve gotta wear shades. 😎 ... See MoreSee Less

Do you know what “Jammen slap av” means? How about “Så drar vi da”? Brush up on your Norwegian with Kelly Doherty, whose first-generation immigrant character speaks plenty of Norwegian in “The Fisherman’s Daughters.” 🇳🇴

Special shout-out to sturgeon Bay musician (and Norwegian native) Marcus Trana, who tutored Kelly (as well as playwright Katie Dahl) in Norwegian as we were getting the show ready to open. Uff da!
