Home Again: a cabaret evening with Allie Babich
Premiered Saturday, September 19
Known for her spunk, smarts, and velvety powerhouse of a voice, Allie Babich has sung and acted her way across the world for the past decade, gracing stages at the American Shakespeare Center, Utah Shakespeare Festival, the Guthrie Theater, the Minnesota Centennial Showboat, Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and in Disney On Classic’s tour of Japan. But we at Northern Sky are lucky to have worked with her “way back when,” when she launched her professional career by originating the role of Dottie in 2012’s Victory Farm.
“Allie’s got one of my favorite voices of all time,” said Victory Farm playwright Katie Dahl. “I remember just being blown away the first time I heard her sing in Victory Farm rehearsal, and I’ve relished the chances I’ve had to hear her sing since then. If there is a silver lining of this pandemic, it’s all of us getting to hear Allie sing a whole concert! I really cannot wait.”
On September 19, Allie will return to her Northern Sky roots for “Home Again: A Cabaret Evening with Allie Babich,” broadcast live from Northern Sky’s Gould Theater patio. “Home Again” will feature songs from Northern Sky’s original musicals and well-known Broadway musicals, as well as folk and Americana hits, and will be accompanied by Colin Welford, a world-renowned pianist and conductor whose credits include Billy Elliot (Broadway), The Lion King (worldwide music supervision), and Hamilton (Chicago), as well as many years with Northern Sky.

Featuring: Allie Babich
Since Allie Babich appeared at Northern Sky in 2012, she’s mostly been performing and moving: twenty-one times in the last ten years, to be exact. She has called many places home (Washington Heights, Door County, Milwaukee, Staunton, First Stage, a good book, the woods, the alto section, her Volkswagen), and is so excited to have a chance to sing to Northern Sky fans in their homes.
