Some might call grocery shopping mundane. But shopping at Main Street Market is nothing of the sort--it's as clean and bright as this (dare we say it) DELIGHTFUL jingle makes it out to be. 🌽 🍷 🧀
Main Street Market is one of Northern Sky's longest-running sponsors (this year sponsoring "Love Stings"), and we love the way this jingle (created by "Windjammers" authors Clay Zambo and Robin Share, with fantastic animation by Hannah Saidiner) captures the Market's real-life sparkle and shine.
Take a look--you'll see some of your favorite Main Street Market faces appear!
All our thanks to Clay, Robin, and Main Street for their support. 🛒

We love The Parkwood Lodge - Door County Hotel (and not just because they're Northern Sky show sponsors)! "Dad's Season Tickets" playwright Matt Zembrowski put together this nifty little jingle to tell you just how much we love it. Make sure you watch all the way through to catch some cute shots of Matt and his daughter napping. (They were worn out after they spent the first half of the video driving at breakneck speed to The I-can't-get-there-fast-enough Parkwood Lodge!) 🚗 😴 🏡

We are exctied to announce that Lisa Anne Schlenker will join our company as Resident Designer and Production Manager. We’ve been working with Lisa as a designer for ten seasons, and we are so excited to have her with our company year-round. She brings a ton of valuable expertise to the position, and it’ll be a real gift to have her around full-time.
Lisa says, “For me, this new adventure combines my two great loves in the theatre: making stuff and nurturing people. To me, there’s so much joy in hands-on design and creative work, telling stories with wonderful directors, actors, musicians, composers, and writers. I've been delighted by Northern Sky’s growth in the years I've been a guest designer here, and seeing long range plans for our future is very exciting.

What are our Tuesday Crew volunteers doing today? Gearing up for the season by getting the directional signs off the top shelf and ready for placement. Thanks, guys!
(Of course, they are doing A LOT more than this. Just happened upon this scene in the production building. There's also wood being chopped, furniture being unpacked for housing, and stuff getting fixed...to name a few things.)
