Old standard Cheeseheads gets new update at Northern Sky Theater

This week’s Home for the Holidays shows at the Gould Theater are not the only Northern Sky Theater shows changing a few notes. Northern Sky Theater announced its 2023 season earlier this year, which will see the return of such favorites like “Cheeseheads, The Musical.” For “Cheeseheads,” the musical will be updated to fit today’s more modern times compared to when it debuted under the American Folklore Theatre banner in 2009. It will also be told through the lens of LaChrisa Grandberry’s character leading a much more diverse cast than what was seen over a decade ago. Grandberry was recently named to Madison365’s list of the top 52 most influential Black leaders in Wisconsin. Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst says not all of their shows lend themselves to going through such changes.

Northern Sky Theater is also set to perform “The Fish Whisperer” at the Peninsula State Park amphitheater as a part of the World Premiere Wisconsin Festival during its 2023 outdoor season. Inside the Gould Theater, Northern Sky Theater will perform “Guys on Ice,” “Guys and Does,” and “When Pigs Fly.”  You can read their full announcement here.
