I love this so much

That was great! 🀣

Do you know what a rocks glass is?

Some of us didn't either. But the Northern Sky version is so cool, and you'll get one if you sign up for the Deluxe Northern Sky Box as part of "Raise the Curtain: Take a Leap"! πŸ’ƒ

We're teaming up with Door County Delivered to create two special Northern Sky boxes that will help you celebrate "Raise the Curtain" (which happens May 30) in style. 🎁

You can order one of two different box sizes, which come with various assortments of Northern Sky-etched coasters and rocks glasses (both pictured here; rocks glasses come in the Deluxe box only), Northern Sky face masks, chocolate, and even genuine Nicolet Bay water!πŸ₯ƒπŸ˜·πŸ«πŸ’¦

The perfect vessel for serving Hinkley's Bone Liniment!

Cool!

Authors! We love 'em! We are so happy to introduce the creators of "Not Even Remotely."

The book, music, and lyrics of this world premiere show have all been co-authored by Richard Carsey and Stephen Kovacs, and they were joined by Corrie Beula Kovacs in conceiving the story of the show.

This dynamic team made magic for us before. Richard was the development guide for "We Like It Where?" and worked closely with Steve in developing the score for that hit show in 2019. Richard Carsey is a maestro who has conducted on Broadway and around the world, but "Not Even Remotely" will be his first credit as an author/composer.

We couldn't be prouder of this team. They brought us a wackadoodle hybrid show idea last fall. In just a few months, it's blossomed into a hilarious and meaningful story that we cannot WAIT to share with you. Here's to taking chances and trying new things!

Take a leap with us, and see opening night of "Not Even Remotely" (plus an After Party with the cast, director, and these very authors) on May 30. northernskytheater.com/raise-the-curtain-2021/

I love these bright shiny faces! What a handsome trio. ❀

Bravo!!! Can't wait for the show.

NOT EVEN REMOTELY: SIX FACTS TO KNOW AND TELL.

1. PANDEMIC PLAY
This show didn't exist at ALL before the pandemic started. It was written by Richard Carsey and Stephen Kovacs *during* the pandemic, with Covid safety protocols in mind. 🧼

2. VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON?
But the thing is, they knew the pandemic wouldn't last forever--so they set out to make a show that could work virtually OR in person. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»πŸ•Ί Brilliant!

3. BOTH!
We like it so much that we're performing it both ways! We're opening the season with a virtual performance of "Not Even Remotely" on May 30-it'll be the crown jewel of this year's virtual "Raise the Curtain" celebration. πŸ‘‘ That whole week, in fact, we'll be doing the show virtually. And then, in July? You'll be able to come see it *in person* in the Gould Theater! Either way you see it, it will be performed LIVE!

4. WHADDAYA MEAN, LIVE?
The five virtual performances will take place *live* every night--meaning, anything could happen! (This is not a pre-recorded on-demand situation.) The actors, Alex Campea and Doug Clemons, will be ensconced with director Nadja Simmonds at Chase Stoeger and Molly Rhode's condo in Milwaukee, and every night at showtime, they'll bring you *that night's* version of the show. And when we do the show in person--well, of course, that will be live, too. πŸŽ‰

5. FRANKENSTEIN!
"Not Even Remotely" is about Chris and Alex, two guys who have been planning a lavish musical version of "Frankenstein." But when dress rehearsal is suddenly shut down, Chris and Alex are forced to perform a two-person, online version of the show instead. It's a madcap romp of a story about two artists whose visions of grandeur are hilariously thwarted by reality. And of course, it's a musical! ⚑️

6. TICKETS?
Right now, you can only get tickets for the very first night of the show, May 30. We hope you'll come to this one because it'll be the show's true world premiere, it'll be our season opener, and it'll be the only night with a post-show After Party where you get to chat with the actors. Get those tickets by registering here for "Raise the Curtain: Take a Leap!" 🎫

πŸ“£ BIG NEWS! WE DON'T HAVE TICKETS YET, BUT WE HAVE A SEASON! πŸ“£

We are THRILLED to announce the shows for Northern Sky's 2021 season. We are presenting five shows (5!) (πŸ–πŸ»!): three brand-new pieces (3!) and two classic hits (2!), including one (1!) that is the first book musical Northern Sky ever produced.

Whether you come to Pen Park or the Gould (yes, we'll have shows at both locations), things will look a little different than usual. We'll be operating at a reduced capacity and selling all tickets in advance (no ticket sales at the door). Patrons, volunteers, and staff (except actors) will all wear masks. And at the Park, shows will be staged simply, with minimal actor movement and without traditional scenery--that'll help us reduce onstage and backstage traffic. And although we'll still be performing Monday-Saturday, all shows will take place at 7:30 p.m.

But you know what will be the same? You'll be seeing real live Northern Sky shows.

This announcement is hot off the presses. πŸ“° It's so fresh, in fact, that you can't even buy a ticket for this season yet. But we didn't want to wait any longer to let you in on our plans. So without further ado, here's what we're doing!

***

"The Fisherman's Daughters" (A Preview Production!)
Book, Music, & Lyrics by Katie Dahl
Peninsula State Park Amphitheater, June 14-July 10

A Door County story by Door County playwright Katie Dahl, "The Fisherman's Daughters" tells the story of two sisters in 1908 Fish Creek who must reckon with their differences when Wisconsin’s governor decides to turn their homestead into part of Peninsula State Park. Pre-pandemic, we had planned to produce this show in 2021. This stripped-down production will be a preview of the full production we'll mount in the future.

***

"Tongue 'n' Cheek"
Book and Lyrics by Fred Alley; Music by James Kaplan
Peninsula State Park Amphitheater, July 12-August 7

The first book musical Northern Sky ever produced! This timeless classic sounds like it comes straight out of a crackling front-porch farm radio. Long-suffering Naomi and her work-averse husband, George, quibble while Doc Johnson woos his skeptical neighbor Lorna. It’s a tale of flipping pancakes, curing ailments, and waltzing till the last cow comes home.

***

"Whatever Happened to Karl Janko?" (World Premiere!)
Book, Music, & Lyrics by Matt Zembrowski
Peninsula State Park Amphitheater, August 9-September 18

Long ago, Karl Jankoβ€”last seen in his metallic green Cutlass Supremeβ€”disappeared from his tiny Wisconsin hometown without a trace. Thirty years later, everyone in town thinks they know what happened to him. They're all wrong. Actors play multiple roles in this hilarious musical mystery extravaganza, which Matt Zembrowski wrote (inspired by a true story!) specifically with Covid protocols in mind.

***

"Not Even Remotely" (World Premiere!)
Music, Book & Lyrics by Richard Carsey & Stephen Kovacs
Virtual Production May 30-June 3
In Person at the Gould Theater July 12 - August 7

Together, Chris and Alex have been planning a lavish musical version of Frankenstein. But when rehearsals are suddenly shut down, Chris and Alex are forced to perform a two-person, online version of the show instead. A madcap romp of a story about two actors whose visions of musical grandeur are hilariously thwarted by reality. This show was written to be performed either on Zoom or in person, so we're doing both! In fact, you can buy your ticket to the virtual opening (part of our Raise the Curtain event) here: northernskytheater.com/raise-the-curtain-2021/

***

"Naked Radio"
Music by Paul Libman; Book & Lyrics by Dave Hudson
The Gould Theater, August 23-November 6

When a small radio station gets swallowed up by a corporate parent, the local DJs are relegated to obscurity. But when a snowstorm knocks out the county and the station loses its tie to the pre-programmed feed, the guys have to punt, and a rejuvenated station brings back spontaneity and joy to the community it serves. This show was a hit in 2017, and we planned to remount it in 2020 before Covid scuttled our plans.

Wow, 20 years! Still miss his beautiful voice and humor! Carry on, Northern Sky! ❀️

Will forever miss Fred.... it was a very sad morning, twenty years ago.

He was loved by all of the Herbst. So much a part of our family.

These daffodils on Highland Rd return every year. They were planted in the fall after Fred left us. His father helped plant them.

Fred Alley will continue to live in the hearts of his many fans ❀️

Now Fred and Neen can make music together in heaven. I miss them both.

I know he is missed greatly; he was one of my favorites. Love his voice, his songs, and his spirit that is still felt strongly.

My folks lived not too far from Fred and we all felt so bad, we missed a couple of seasons of the plays. One of us will say, I'll see you when I see you and someone always answers, you probably will.

We still miss you, Fred. 🎢

Such a shocking and sad loss. All the future creations that we will never have.....

He had such an impact on the past, present and future from the Heritage Ensemble to Northern Sky.

Our family will never forget Fred❀️

He will always be missed πŸ˜‚

Wow time is flying❀

I still remember catching him at The White Gull Inn where he was eating breakfast, and congratulating him on his show which we saw the night before. I think it was even before Lumberjacks in Love.

πŸ’ƒ RAISE THE CURTAIN: TAKE A LEAP! πŸ’ƒ

Did you hear our fabulous news?! We will indeed be having a live, in-person season this summer, both at Peninsula State Park and in the Gould Theater.

And today, we're pleased to announce that we'll kick off this season May 30 with Raise the Curtain: Take a Leap! It'll be a full day of virtual merriment and music, culminating in the world premiere of Not Even Remotely, Northern Sky's very first show of our 2021 season. (Note: this gala day, including "Not Even Remotely," will be virtual--but all day, we'll be celebrating the rest of the season, which begins in person on June 14!)

This year's Raise the Curtain will be chock-full of the kinds of things we've all come to love from our past year of online gatherings: Northern Sky Fashion Spy! An online Marketplace! Northern Sky Boxes from Door County Delivered! And banter, music, and bakery on The Jeff & Katie Show. But this time around, we'll have the joy of knowing we're opening an in-person season any minute (and we'll tell you all about it!). And at the end of the day, we'll be premiering a brand-new Northern Sky show, Not Even Remotely, by Richard Carsey and Stephen Kovacs--and afterward, we'll have a one-night-only After Party with the show's creators and cast.

At Northern Sky in Peninsula Park!

I want to be right there at Northern Sky sitting in the front row or possibly the second row. I hope it’s happening this year.

Your going to announce the return of “Ghost Story”. Still my favorite all time show. Of course it was also my first! I’m a very hopefully person.

Yep; that's our esteemed Development Director, Holly Feldman. She is the real Super Woman! πŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈ

www.facebook.com/mentordoorcounty/photos/a.208163104394083/234707718406288/Meet the Mentor Door County Advisory Team! This team is comprised of 8 powerhouses who are dedicated to helping Door County women reach their goals. This team uses their diverse network to provide mentoring experiences to young women between the ages of 18-30 years old.

Holly Feldman
Paying it forward! (Or is it paying it backward?) I have had the privilege of being on the receiving end of some truly generous mentors over the years. Most of the time, these mentor/mentee relationships happened very organically and I only thought about the guidance and support I received once I’d moved on to the next phase of life. Over the past year of living more simply, I’ve had the chance to reflect on that guidance and those relationships. Not only did I realize that I wanted to be sure to leave myself open to being a mentor to others but I also realized that those β€œorganic” opportunities are much harder to come by when we are all working from home. Mentor Door County is my chance to pay it forward AND pay it backward to ensure that any woman in need of a mentor can get connected to the guidance and support they need to be the best version of themselves.

Yes! ❀

Under the stars at Peninsula Park is still my favorite stage. 🌲🎢🌲

We are happy that they are there and well cared for.

Can’t wait to see Northern Sky perform (safely) in person.

Some of my favorite beautiful patches of earth!

Cannot wait for the first show of the season.

Both beautiful

Hard to believe: last weekend, we finished our first-ever winter season. Doc Heide closed the season out Saturday night with a fantastic concert--a chronological walk through his lifetime's worth of spectacular songs.

Doc's concert, as well as everything else we've released over these past many months, are now available on demand. Watch when you want; pay what you choose--just give us a call to sign up (920-854-6117).

We are CLOSE to figuring out what our next few months are going to look like, but we can't tell you anything definitive yet. Trust us, we can't wait to find out either! Stay tuned for more.

Thanks you sound great!

I haven’t been paying attention....Is the theatre reopening this spring?

You guys are the best!

Tonight: Doc Heide live in concert! It'll be just like this, except online. With fewer trees. But Doc Heide will still be his perpetually youthful, enchanting self. Do you have your ticket yet? Pay what you choose.

Yes, we really enjoyed it too!

What a beautiful concert! Just wonderful! Thanks Doc!

Looking forward to the concert.

What a treat!

It’s been 39 years since our intrepid cofounder sat for this photo with his fellow Heritage Ensemblians. His good humor, strong fashion choices, and (most importantly) superb songwriting are undimmed since 1982, and we are excited for his (to use an 80s term) TUBULAR concert tomorrow. Doc will play a selection of his original songs live on the stage of the Gould Theater (his first performance on that stage!), and we’ll stream it directly into your living room.

Did you buy your 🎫 yet? Pay what you choose.

Did you know Doc Heide's concert next weekend will be the first concert he's played in (literally) DECADES where he is the solo singer? We'll get to hear a whole parade of Doc Heide hits (and deep-cut jewels) from over his many years as a songwriter.

Here's one of those hits--"Peaceful Kingdom," performed on The Jeff & Katie Show last August.
