We're sending good vibes out to Malkia Stampley-Johnson and the entire cast of SUNSET BABY as they rehearse for Friday night’s reading at Third Avenue Playhouse. We are over-the-moon to know that Malkia is back at work in the county this week. She is a dynamite director, and we were lucky to have her at the helm of our workshop of SUNFLOWERED last August, a new musical by Lachrisa Grandberry, Aidaa Peeerzada and Alissa Rhode. It was our first virtual workshop and Malkia made it work, guiding our artists through the experience with great energy, care, and joy. Have a great week at TAP, Malkia! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks so much, Northern Sky Theater!!! ❤

The cookbook is wonderful!

Shredded dough...that's a 1st! Confectioner's sugar should only go on lemon bars. Your raspberry bars look delicious and wouldn't need anything else on top! ❤

The Cliffs of Mohr are amazing. I was in Ireland for my 50th birthday.

Nice harmony! Love it. I will steal it!

"Dr Leo Marvin"..... I love that movie.

Lori introduced me to parchment paper. I always thought it was just for antique documents!

Reminds us of that amazing whipped cream demonstration a few months back!

I love coconut cake. Now I have to look it up!

May be thinking of Caroline’s Cakes. From South Carolina.

Jeff's mom here. Love this song.

Loved Karen’s song Do not Fear Only Believe. Beautiful as usual. Jeff, I know Alexa well since that is my daughter’s name. It drives her crazy. 😁

Watching from Jeff's (and Fred's) home town! 🎵❤️ 🎶

He's not exaggerating. There are "barriers" now, but it's still pretty much you and the wind up there.

You can't do that anymore. Although many people were ignoring the Do Not Walk Here signs.

Yeah thanks for all your shows miss in person but all your tribute you have had for Neen was beautiful

Karen comes in like a lion and out like a lamb!

I'm right here in Liberty Grove.

Such a beautiful song! Thank you, Karen!

Karen is a treasure. Her voice could calm an earthquake.

I must depart. I will watch the rest later. See you under the stars...I hope...if not sooner.

Ok....I am not a drinker but I may have to start. HAHA

You will need an addendum to the cookbook.

Watching from Surprise, Arizona.

Lol, love love the Jalogen.

Lovely Karen lovely.

We here at Northern Sky want to send out a big thank you to all the folks who have supported our Rekindle Campaign these past several months.

Our campaign now stands at 85% of our $1.75M goal. There is still time to help us keep the flame alive in 2021. Here’s how you can help:

It'll still be a while before it gets balmy, so in the meantime we thought you might like to cuddle up with a Northern Sky show and a mug of hot chocolate. Also, you won't want to miss the last two Jeff & Katie Show episodes!

We're basking in the glow of all the warm memories we shared last night at our Zoom gathering remembering Neen Rock. Someone in the gathering mentioned this extraordinary video taken at Madison Ballet's production of Nutcracker, and we wanted to share it with you: a glimpse of the intricate backstage work done by a crew led by a strong and gentle captain. Being backstage, the audio is quiet, so turn it up to hear Neen call this finely tuned set of cues to make onstage magic. ❤ ... See MoreSee Less

The fun really starts about a minute in to this video after the music gets a little quiet.

A Master of her craft. So impressive.

Neen let us sit with her while this was being preformed Julie Mags Lloyd and I a eye opener and the great Neen did her marvelous stuff the whole time!

Steve Fischer, thank you for sharing this gem.

Amazing calls and team work!!

This is amazing. Thank you NST & Steve Fischer! p.s. I think you meant to credit / tag www.facebook.com/ThunderFishAudio The Steve Fischer tagged in one of the comments seems like a different guy.

You probably recognize these smiling faces as belonging to Northern Sky actor Lachrisa Grandberry and associate artistic director Molly Rhode. Together, Lachrisa and Molly recently launched Door County Amplify, a Facebook page that aims to amplify voices of Black artists, indigenous artists, and artists of color with connections to the Door County peninsula. We at Northern Sky are so excited about this page! If you're so inclined, would you take a moment to head over to Door County Amplify (just click on the name there) and click "Like"?

We recommend you take a minute to scroll through the page--Molly and Lachrisa have assembled quite the spectacular array of stories and songs on the page already!

The show tonight is going to be so fantastic that even Bernie wants to get in on the action! At 7 p.m. CST, we're presenting a full reading of "And If Elected," featuring the 2016 script and cast--a hybrid version featuring both live performances (broadcast by Karen Mal in Austin, TX, Jake Endres in Minneapolis, MN, and Jeff Herbst in Fish Creek, WI) and archival footage from the 2016 production in Gibraltar Town Hall. At the end of the night, presidential trivia junkie Jeff Herbst will challenge the audience with some of his best presidential trivia. 🇺🇸 🎩

Taken together, these festivities make up "Jeff's Presidential Palooza"! Tickets are $21. Huzzah!

Happy Valentine's Day, and happy premiere day of "Love: It's Not Just for Lumberjacks"! To celebrate the day, we're highlighting four couples with Northern Sky love stories. Here's the fourth of four: Katie Dahl and Rich Higdon! (See the others on our Facebook page.)

Musician/playwright/Northern Sky board member Katie Dahl met Rich Higdon for the first time in 2006 at the Ephraim Village Hall, where Katie had just finished house managing Northern Sky's show "Fish and Whistle" and Rich had just arrived for an evening of work on the strike crew. They went on their first date a year later (Rich picked Katie up at her Northern Sky housing, where she was living while working as the house manager for "Main Travelled Roads"). Rich and Katie soon started collaborating musically as well, and by 2014 they were married and performing regularly together throughout Door County and beyond, including in three different iterations of "Home for the Holidays" at Northern Sky.

You'll see "Victory Farm," the show Katie co-wrote, tonight in "Love: It's Not Just for Lumberjacks." Plus, you can rest easy knowing that Rich probably helped tear down and store the set and tech equipment at the end of many of the Northern Sky seasons featured in the compilation.

I heard Katie’s name mentioned on our local radio station today as part of a folk segment.

AND I think Rich Higdon can boast a legit credit tonight, as Percussion Consultant for "Dairy Heirs." It's a position that brings in the big bucks! He coached the cast on the use of cowbells, spoons, washboard, and more. There is major cymbal work in tonight's clip of Fireworks that Rich helped to refine and elevate, if refining crash cymbals is possible. 😄💥

p.s. I love, love, love this picture! -m.

This is a great picture!

Yes, this pic captures them perfectly! Beautiful ❣️

Great couple and musicians

Happy Valentine's Day, and happy premiere day of "Love: It's Not Just for Lumberjacks"! To celebrate the day, we're highlighting four couples with Northern Sky love stories. Here's the first one; keep your eyes peeled for more!

Chase Stoeger and Molly Rhode met in a show in Milwaukee, but they say their love story really took off in Door County while working at Door Shakespeare and then at Northern Sky. They’re pictured here after a performance of “As You Like It,” where they played Orlando and Rosalind. Their first Northern Sky season was 2007, performing in the premiere of “Cabin with a View.” They tied the knot in spring of 2009 and honeymooned in Algoma, on their way up north to start rehearsal for “Cheeseheads, the Musical.”

See them tonight in "Love: It's Not Just For Lumberjacks."🪓❤

We watched a number of relationships blossom in our summers of volunteering. It was easy to predict these two were destine to be together.

Very talented couple!

I don’t think their acting in this picture.....

Wow! You don’t see the phrase, “honeymooned in Algoma,”very often

Idk why but Molly kinda reminds me of Stevie Nicks in the photo

They are the sweetest!

A beautiful couple, inside and out. 🥰

🎶”I think I’m in love with the Kid”🎶

Wish you would do some more DVD’s of other plays. I watch Guy’s on Ice a lot, never gets old

I saw this the year it came out when I was 8, and wore out my cassette listening at home for years after. Even now I could probably sing every word. Fred, Karen, Doc and Jeff made such a wonderful impression on me, huge fan to this day. ❤️

I fell in love with Fred and Karen the first time I saw LIL. I wanted to be the Kid! Pretty sure my mom even got me the cassette soundtrack...

We’re listening to Lumberjacks in Love right now: “Oh Moon, wouldn’t you like to feel the winds of love blowin’ up against your bare self? My 5 year old: “Bare?!?! That means you’re naked!!!” 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Great memory in our 👪

Babies.

This was the era where I first saw AFT...BEST times!!!

Today we send out our condolences to the family and friends of Pete Schuster. Pete was so much more than a dedicated fan of ours. He was one of our original community board members, volunteered for and donated to Northern Sky often, and was our longtime graphic designer (our annual newsletter FolkTales/SkyWords–that was all Pete!). Pete could be seen at every Northern Sky event and could probably have been considered the de facto leader of Worker Bee Day, recruiting his granddaughters to join him in schlepping wood chips through the amphitheater to freshen things up each spring. Pete was always quick to offer a smile, story, note of encouragement, or helping hand, and we, along with countless others, sure will miss him.

So sad to hear about Pete. He was an amazing volunteer and was a rock star at Worker Bee Day helping to get the theater ready for the summer. He will truly be missed!

Pete was a real renaissance man, capable of doing all. Door County has lost a wonderful supporter of nonprofits & all of DC. 🥲

He was truly amazing.❤️

What a lovely soul! And this picture is marvelous!!

SUCH a good guy.

Genuine and Golden <3 Kind and Compassionate, Pete. He leaves behind a great void.

So sorry.

We and so many others will miss him.

A real loss! 😔

A truly exemplary human.

Oh Pete, my friend. You were the best. 😢

Pete was one of a kind 💕 ... he will be greatly missed.

God rest his soul.

Oh, no. What a loss! Sweet guy, indeed.

We didn't get to present "And If Elected," our quadrennial presidential campaign revue, in 2020. So on Monday (President's Day!) we're doing a full public reading of the show, featuring both live performances by and archival video of the 2016 cast: Karen Mal, Jake Endres, and presidential trivia expert Jeff Herbst! 🇺🇸 Jeff will also be on hand with some impressive presidential trivia. Katie Dahl will serve as emcee for the evening.

Well, how fun is that little promo that magically appeared on FaceBook? (Thanks, Katie Dahl) So fun to be able to revisit this piece after missing the opportunity to do it with Jake and Karen last fall.

I'm so excited about this!

Love this show!!

Can’t wait!!

This is one of my favorite shows to see Jeff in!

Can't wait to hang out with you Monday night, Jeff Herbst, Karen Mal, and Jake Endres!

Love: It's Not Just for Lumberjacks! 🪓 It's also for sailors, and Packer fans, and Belgians, and doctors, and welders. 💌

We can't wait to premiere our newest archival video compilation this Sunday, February 14. Songs and stories of funny love, sweet love, lost love, and "stupid, stupid love" make up "Love: It's Not Just for Lumberjacks," which features clips from more than a dozen shows ranging from the '90s to now (including some recently unearthed footage of our cofounder Fred Alley). 📹

We'd love to spend our Valentine's Day with you! Pay what you choose:

You two are too cute.

Crossing fingers and know that we will support you in any venue. Hopefully you will need me as a volunteer - first COVID vaccine done.

Is someone playing football today?
Nah, nobody important.

That was so much more fun than watching the Super Bowl without the Packers. You ROCK!

Good fun & music.
