Northern Sky Theater announces ticket sales and casting for their 2017 summer season. Northern Sky’s lineup includes four musical comedies playing in rotating repertory from June 14 to Aug. 26 at their amphitheater in Peninsula State Park.
This summer will see the return of familiar faces as well as a new troupe of interns.
“Our intern program has always given young theater artists a chance to work in all areas of a professional theater,” said Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst. “This year we have three outstanding interns taking on major performance roles in our shows, as well. Also, all five interns are Wisconsin natives and are attending or have attended schools in Wisconsin.”
The summer world premiere, Oklahoma in Wisconsin, features returning company members Doug Mancheski, Eva Nimmer, Bill Theisen, Rhonda Rae Busch, Alex Campea, and introduces performing intern John Brotherhood. Oklahoma in Wisconsin plays Mondays at 6 pm, Wednesdays at 8 pm, and Fridays at 8 pm.
Last year’s cast for Matt Zembrowski’s Doctor! Doctor! returns with the addition of performing intern, Laura Paruzynski. Doctor! Doctor! plays Mondays at 8:30 pm and Thursdays at 6 pm.
Victory Farm returns for its third run with Northern Sky. Returning cast members include Doug Mancheski, Eva Nimmer, and Molly Rhode. New for the 2017 cast are Jeffrey Herbst, Chase Stoeger, and local Sevastopol High School graduate, Isaiah Spetz. Victory Farm plays Tuesdays and Saturdays at 8 pm.
Lumberjacks in Love, by Fred Alley and James Kaplan, returns to the woods with the same all-star cast from last year’s 20th anniversary of this fan favorite. Lumberjacks in Love plays on Thursdays at 8:30 pm.
