“Feed the Fish” Begins Fish Creek Winter Fest at DCA

On Jan. 31 at 7 pm, in conjunction with Fish Creek Winter Games, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present the 2009 Tony Shalhoub film Feed the Fish, a favorite of Door County audiences ever since it was filmed on the peninsula.

Set in Door County, Feed the Fish tells the story of Joe, a frustrated writer in Los Angeles. To break through his writer’s block, Joe agrees to accompany his friend to Door County, Wisconsin for the Polar Bear Plunge. The house where they stay is isolated, and when Joe’s pal is hospitalized with a badger bite, Joe befriends a local hermit, develops a liking for the man’s granddaughter, and must deal with the local sheriff’s dislike of anyone from out of town.

Feed the Fish stars Green Bay native Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and features appearances by many familiar Door County faces.

The screening of Feed the Fish is free to the public, but freewill donations are encouraged. Door Community Auditorium is located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday through Friday, 12 – 5 pm. For more information, call 920.868.2728 or visit
