Theatergoers in Door County will once again be able to catch shows outdoors and indoors this summer after a year away.
Northern Sky Theater and Door Shakespeare have both announced their outdoor slate of shows while Peninsula Players are patiently waiting for their health and safety plans to be approved by the Actors’ Equity Association and the Society of Directors and Choreographers.
Rogue Theater learned the challenges those organizations face when they chose to perform their shows drive-in style in the parking lot of Sturgeon Bay’s Prince of Peace Church. Getting used to the weather elements was a tough transition, but as the summer dragged on they saw their crowds from around the region increase. Rogue Theater’s Stuart Champeau says he is happy the shows were well-received and that they will be able to do the same thing again this summer.
Rogue Theater will open its season on June 5th with a production of “The Case of the Mysterious Cravat.” Their four Friday/Saturday shows will be held outside at 6 p.m. while Sunday matinees will be held inside the church at 2 p.m. Door Shakespeare will present Hamlet beginning on June 30th and Northern Sky Theater will host its first performance of The Fisherman’s Daughter on June 14th.
