The hit ice-fishing musical comedy Guys on Ice is back and celebrating its 25th anniversary this season with an opening performance on Wednesday at Northern Sky Theater. The show, which was created by Fred Alley and James Kaplan, has been performed throughout the country and was made into a PBS TV special. Debuting at the Ephraim Village Hall 25 years ago, the show features two men spending a winter’s day in a shanty on the ice talking about life, love, and Leinies.
Doug Mancheski and Steve Koehler will anchor the production as fishing buddies Marvin and Lloyd, performing musical numbers like “The Wishing Hole”, “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit”, and “The One That Got Away”.
Starting July 5th, the Guys on Ice show will run through September 1st at Northern Sky’s Indoor Gould Theater with performances on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. You can get more information on the show and purchase tickets with this link.
