The story of a town in the Fox Valley seceding from Wisconsin and two old favorites highlight the summer season of Northern Sky Theater beginning on Wednesday. “Dairy Heirs” makes a triumphant return to the Peninsula State Park amphitheater after last year’s successful run while “Windjammers” sets sail for the first time since 2013. New this year is “We Like It Where?,” the true story of Winneconne residents voicing their displeasure with being left off the state map with the publicity stunt of secession in the 1960s. Written by Corrie and Stephen Kovacs, artistic director Jeff Herbst says the musical is one of the first Northern Sky Theater has done featuring real-life characters.
The summer season features “We Like It Where?” on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, “Windjammers” on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and “Dairy Heirs” on Mondays and Fridays. You can learn more about the shows and get an update on Northern Sky Theater’s creative campus during this Saturday’s Ask the Expert beginning at 7:30 a.m. on 96.7 WBDK.
