A Tuneful Tale of Tangled Twins

Separated at birth, one twin ends up a ukulele fanatic in Hawaii while the other becomes part of a family banjo dynasty in Wisconsin. The two worlds intertwine in musical merriment and mayhem at a northern Wisconsin lodge.

The World’s First Sci-Fi Football Musical!

Packer Fans from Outer Space makes a terrestrial re-visit to AFT after a galactic hiatus of eleven years. This delightfully whacky musical, by Frederick Heide, Lee Becker and James Kaplan, was AFT’s biggest hit ever in 2002, when it made its earthly debut. Since then the show has had multiple productions around Wisconsin, including a run at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in Milwaukee in 2012 that received critical raves.

Opens Wednesday, June 18th at 6:00PM

The Hit Ice Fishing Musical

Guys On Ice is undoubtedly our most-requested show ever and hasn’t played on our summer stage for seven years. So we felt it was time for another visit into the world of Marvin, Lloyd, and Ernie the Moocher. Buddies Marvin and Lloyd spend a winter’s day in a shanty out on the ice, talking about life, love and Leinie’s. Guys on Ice returns to the fishing hole for a couple of nights each week.

Opens Thursday, June 12th at 8:00PM
