2023 World Premiere

Something’s fishy in the town of Shewauga.

When the fish stop biting in the small Wisconsin town of Shewauga, a mysterious outsider named Hannah Hill offers to get them biting again—but only if the residents pay her $10,000!  To the locals, this all sounds a bit fishy. Is she a con artist or a genuine talent? Brimming with hope and romance, The Fish Whisperer is a world premiere musical that will hook you with sweet melodies and laughs!

The Fish Whisperer is part of World Premiere Wisconsin, a statewide new works festival taking place from March 1 – June 30, presented by the Ten Chimneys Foundation. Northern Sky Theater is proud to be a lead producer within a coalition of Wisconsin theaters celebrating new plays and musicals to raise awareness nation-wide that Wisconsin has a thriving and diverse theater ecosystem. Northern Sky will be hosting the festival’s finale party in June during the run of The Fish Whisperer.
