An Event to Kick Off Our 2021 Season

Sunday, May 30

Yes! Northern Sky will be having a live, in-person season this summer, both at Peninsula State Park and in the Gould Theater. And we’ll kick it off 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 first-ever live virtual musical and the very first show of our 2021 season. 

The Day

Jeff & Katie Show

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 with Doug Clemons and Lachrisa Grandberry, an online Marketplace, and custom Northern Sky Boxes from Door County Delivered. Plus, get your trivia and bakery ready for the return of The Jeff & Katie Show! Jeff and Katie will be on hand to bring you a deep dive into the company, authors, and stories behind our 2021 season. And at the end of the day, we’ll be premiering a brand-new Northern Sky show, Not Even Remotely. (Read on!)

The Show

Written by Richard Carsey and Stephen Kovacs, Not Even Remotely is a madcap romp about two actors’ hilariously misguided efforts to present an extravagant musical version of Frankenstein–over Zoom. Nadja Simmonds makes her directoral debut featuring the cast of two: Alex Campea and Doug Clemons. The (virtual) world premiere opening night of Not Even Remotely (and the first show of Northern Sky’s summer 2021 season!) will take place on the night of Raise the Curtain, May 30. The live virtual show will run for five performances May 30-June 3. The May 30 opening night performance will feature an exclusive post-show Zoom After Party with the show’s creators, authors, and cast.

The Marketplace

Starting May 23, you can visit our Northern Sky Marketplace, featuring show-themed baskets for auction, as well as one-of-a-kind items and experiences from Northern Sky artists, who share in the proceeds from what they create.

The Box

Once again, we’ll be teaming up with Door County Delivered to create a special Northern Sky box that will help you celebrate the day in style, bringing Door County straight to your door. There are two different box options, and both are full of goodies like coasters, face masks, chocolate, rocks glasses, and genuine Nicolet Bay water! See complete gift box options below.


Proceeds from Raise the Curtain benefit our Rekindle Campaign, designed to sustain Northern Sky in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. All contributions for Marketplace items, Door County Delivered boxes, or Not Even Remotely registrations will count toward our $1.75 million Rekindle Campaign goal.
