Northern Sky Theater

Northern Sky is a must-see Door County theater experience: original musicals presented beneath stars and towering pines in Peninsula Park Amphitheater, as well as indoors at the intimate, state-of-the-art Gould Theater. No matter the venue, Northern Sky is “as much a Door County tradition as cherry preserves…one of the most exceptional professional troupes in the country” (Chicago Tribune).

A timeless classic that sounds like it comes straight out of a crackling front-porch farm radio. Long-suffering Naomi and her work-averse husband, George, quibble while Doc Johnson woos his skeptical neighbor Lorna. It’s a tale of flipping pancakes, curing ailments, and waltzing till the last cow comes home.
