FISH CREEK, WI (June 30, 2016) – For more than a decade now, Northern Sky Theater has offered a day of creativity dedicated to children and teens interested in learning more about what it means to be part of a professional musical theater troupe in Door County.
Northern Sky Theater announces Creative Kids Day for 2016
Over the years, hundreds of youth have taken advantage of the opportunity to look behind the scenes, play theater games on the amphitheater stage, join in on cast sing-a-longs, and sneak a rare peak inside the Northern Sky dressing rooms.
This year, led by veteran company member and Associate Artistic Director Molly Rhode, participants will gain the additional experience of learning a song and dance from "Lumberjacks in Love" with the end result of performing a short bit for their family and friends.
"Molly brings a wealth of experience from her background with Milwaukee's First Stage Theatre Academy where she spent several years in children's theatre education," stated Holly Feldman, Director of Development and Public Relations.
"Celebrating the 20th anniversary of a fan favorite seems appropriate," stated Rhode. "We'll do some games that help us delve into the different characters, and we'll work on a scene, a song, and a dance from the show."
Children and teens ages 6 to 16 will have the option of choosing one of two sessions taking place on Friday, July 8: 9:30am–Noon or 1:00–3:30pm. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Admission to the event is $25 or a maximum of $60 for 3 siblings or more. A state park sticker is required to attend this event. Each participant also receives a t-shirt that they can have signed by the cast and crew.
Northern Sky Theater is a non-profit professional theatre organization that produces original musical shows in repertory from June through August. Northern Sky continues its performances into the fall as they move indoors September through October.
