Door County’s award-winning Northern Sky Theater has announced the line-up for its annual holiday concert show at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall. Now in its ninth incarnation, “Home for the Holidays” will feature the first-ever combination of three talented performers: Doc Heide, Amy Chaffee, and Craig Konowalski. The all-new concert for 2015 will play for five performances from Dec. 26 – 31.
This trio has been good friends for decades, ever since their early association with Northern Sky’s predecessor troupe the Heritage Ensemble. This merry band will perform gorgeous folk carols, original songs, contemporary arrangements of holiday classics, all with plenty of wit.
Northern Sky Theater co-founder Doc Heide has performed professionally in Door County for more than four decades. Among the 20 shows he has co-authored are the hit musicals Belgians in Heaven, Packer Fans from Outer Space, and Guys & Does. A Kerrville New Folk Finalist, Doc has recorded four CDs including Christmas in Door County (with Eric Lewis).
Amy Chaffee is an accomplished actress and singer who has performed Off-Broadway, on national tour in 37 states. On screen credits include: Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, Days of Our Lives, and many independent films. She is a professor of Voice and Speech at UCLA and off-screen has coached voice work with everyone from action stars (Bruce Willis, Charlie Hunnam) to Academy Award Winners (Ellen Burstyn and Colin Firth).
Craig Konowalski was a founding member of the Heritage Ensemble. With that troupe he performed in Japan, Taiwan, Korea and the Philippines as an entertainer for the USO. He has won national and international awards for soundtracks he’s written and recorded for multi-media productions.
Performances are scheduled for 7 pm on Dec. 26 and 4 pm on Dec. 28, 29, 30 and 31. Tickets are $22 for adults and $13 for children.
