Born as a COVID-19 alternative to live performance, the livestreamed show returns to the Gould Theater
Northern Sky Theater will present an in-person installment of The Jeff & Katie Show at the Gould Theater, 9058 Cty A in Fish Creek, on Saturday, Oct. 16, 3 pm. The Jeff & Katie Show, which became a feature of Northern Sky’s virtual season in 2020, features hosts Jeff Herbst and Katie Dahl serving up banter, music and a bake-off.
“Jeff and I both love cooking and baking,” Dahl said. “When I said we should do a bake-off, Jeff said, ‘Well, I don’t know,’ but he got really into it.”
Longtime Northern Sky technical director David Alley will join Herbst and Dahl for the bake-off, and the trio will make the cookies that will be served at the postshow bonfire.
“It turned into a really fun way to connect with people,” Dahl said. “It was a rare gift to be able to perform with each other at all.”
Special guests Molly Rhode (actor, bass player and Northern Sky associate artistic director) and James Kaplan (pianist and composer of shows, including Guys on Ice and Lumberjacks in Love) will make appearances during The Jeff & Katie Show.
The Oct. 16 performance will also feature the grand announcement of Northern Sky’s 2022 season, as well as live performances of music from the shows that will be announced.
Tickets ($30) are available online at northernskytheater.com or by phone at 920.854.6117. The show will also be livestreamed to Facebook and YouTube.
