A collection of the goofiest, most belly-laugh-inducing songs and scenes from the Northern Sky video archive.
Fish Creek, Wis. (March 22, 2021) – As part of its ongoing virtual winter season, Northern Sky will present Only the Silly Songs: An April Fool’s Day Festival of Fun. An archival video compilation of some of Northern Sky’s goofiest, most belly-laugh-inducing silly songs, Only the Silly Songs will premiere on Thursday, April 1, at 7 p.m. CDT, and be available thereafter on demand.
“I’ve been going to Northern Sky shows my whole life,” said 9-year-old Silvia Stoeger, daughter of associate artistic director Molly Rhode and actor Chase Stoeger. “They always make me laugh so much. I can’t wait for all the silliest songs to happen right in a row!”
The clips in Only the Silly Songs come from over a dozen Northern Sky productions ranging from the early ’90s to the present day and are gleaned from archival footage of productions both in Peninsula State Park and Northern Sky’s brand-new Gould Theater. Featured productions include Belgians in Heaven, Dad’s Season Tickets, Dairy Heirs, Guys & Does, Guys on Ice, Lumberjacks in Love, and Victory Farm. The footage will include performances by Fred Alley, the late co-founder of Northern Sky.
“Silly Songs has everything from ‘Cheese Curds, Booyah, and Beer’ to ‘Little Dress’ to ‘Sweaty Pies.’” said artistic director Jeff Herbst. “This one’s for the kids—and at Northern Sky, we’ve always believed everyone’s a kid at heart.”
Tickets for Silly Songs are available at northernskytheater.com or by calling the Northern Sky box office at (920) 854-6117. This show (and Northern Sky’s entire winter season) is available via a flexible “pay what you choose” pricing system.
In addition to Only the Silly Songs, Northern Sky is presenting seven other virtual winter shows, including The New Year with Northern Sky (premiered December 31), Love: It’s Not Just for Lumberjacks (premiered February 14), and Malarkey: 1993 in the Park (premiered March 17), as well as live virtual concerts by Eric Lewis (premiered January 23), Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan (premiered February 6) Karen Mal and Will Taylor (premiered March 6), and Doc Heide (live on April 17). Tickets for all winter shows are available at northernskytheater.com.
Northern Sky’s Winter Season supports the theater’s ongoing Rekindle Campaign, an effort to safeguard the company financially against a still uncertain 2021 performance season.
