The Ice-Fishing Musical!
This show is so funny, and so heart-warmingly sweet, that I just love it. One minute there’s a beautiful, melancholy ballad by an aging fisherman about growing up as a boy, and spending time fishing in the ice-fishing shanty with his Dad and Granddad, and how those were the best times they had together…
…then we’re singing “Ode To A Snowmobile Suit” which includes – I kid you not – a spectacular percussion interlude made up of only the velcro and zipper sounds from the snowmobile suits!
So, right now we’re working on getting the costumes, props and set together. Dan Walker is designing the set and lights for this show, and audiences may recognize his name: he designed our sell-out hit Every Christmas Story Ever Told!! last season, and will be doing more shows for us this season!
This show is a ton of fun to produce AND direct – the props alone are an adventure; everything from fishing gear to cans of beer. (And let me say right now that the people at Leinenkugel’s are wonderful!)
That’s it for now – lots of fun being had around here, but a lot of work going on also! So drop on by, see the renovations on the front of the building, and pick up some tickets for Guys On Ice! (Heck, while you’re here, pick up a Season Subscription!)
See you soon!
