Door County artists amplify diversity

Northern Sky Theater mainstays Lachrisa Grandberry and Molly Rohde are helping do their part to welcome more artists of color to Door County. The pair launched Door County Amplify earlier this year to celebrate to work of different artists of color, especially when they are involved with projects in the area. The goal is to increase Door County’s reputation as a being a welcoming place for artists of color. They also hope to increase the visibility of diverse performers coming to the region. Grandberry was new to Door County four years ago when she started to perform at Northern Sky Theater. She hopes in addition to promoting artists of color’s events in the community, she can foster a discussion about a being a Black actor in a predominantly white community.

Grandberry admits her first experience in Door County was a culture shock, but she is thankful for the people she has met for making her feel welcomed. She hopes the Door County Amplify page can help attract other artists of color to come to the area to perform.
