Music, Book & Lyrics by Matt Zembrowski
This delightful musical, in which a retiring small town physician recruits his young big city nephew to take over his practice, is a charming tribute to the nostalgic nature of innocent, small-town life in Door County, where residents reluctantly but humorously adapt to change. “Doctor! Doctor!” is your prescription for laughs this summer!

Lyrics by Randi Wolfe
A dash of dastardly deeds and dairy delights!
A villain (boo!), a hero (yay!), a heroine (aww!), and trusty sidekicks in a romp with plenty of audience interaction. “You must pay the mortgage!” “But, I can’t pay the mortgage!” Woe-is-me! This dash of dastardly deeds and a dollop of dairy delight are the recipe for madcap musical mayhem.
Showing One Night Only: Tuesdays 8 p.m. Opens Tuesday, June 21st. Closes Tuesday, August 23rd.

Four burly lumberjacks live in a state of manly bliss at the Haywire Lumber Camp in Northern Wisconsin – until an encounter with a plucky mail order bride interrupts life as they know it. The result is big belly laughs and beautiful music.

Opens Thursday, June 16th. Special 6pm performance time on Saturday, June 18th.
Closes Saturday, August 27th. PLEASE NOTE: Lumberjacks in Love will have an added performance on Monday, August 22nd and will be replacing the regularly scheduled performance of No Bones About It.
