Dave Hudson

2017 Fall World Premiere

Two DJs. One Blizzard. No Records.
3 actors. 15 characters. No dead air!

When a small radio station gets swallowed up by a corporate parent, the local DJs are relegated to obscurity. But when a snowstorm knocks out the county and the station loses its tie to the pre-programmed feed, the guys have to punt, and a rejuvenated station brings back spontaneity and joy to the community it serves.

From the writers who brought you Cheeseheads, the Musical, Muskie Love, and No Bones About It. Dave Hudson and Paul Libman will be debuting their seventh musical comedy written exclusively for Northern Sky.

Featuring: Doug Forrest, Chase Stoeger & Molly Rhode

About The Writers

Paul Libman PAUL LIBMAN (Composer)
 Musical theatre is Paul Libman’s destination on a journey that began with playing jazz piano, composing for television and radio commercials and producing records. After winning the Richard Rodgers Award twice for two different musicals with collaborator Dave Hudson, Paul relocated to New York, where he currently is a member of the Lehman Engel BMI Advanced Musical Theatre Workshop. He is also the creator, arranger and producer of the hit comedy CD, Oy to the World! A Klezmer Christmas. Now, having had eight successfully produced musicals, he continues to write with Dave Hudson and others. This year, Paul is especially excited about his and Dave’s new Northern Sky musical, Naked Radio.

Dave HudsonDAVE HUDSON (PlaywrightLyricist)
Dave Hudson is a lyricist and bookwriter who was born and raised in the West, but now lives in Chicago. In partnership with the Actors Garden, he has written seven musicals for the youth market ranging from Ancient Egypt (Tut, Tut), to the Middle Ages (Good Knight), to a modern sequel to Peter Pan. He is proud and a little bit amazed that Naked Radio marks his eighth musical for Northern Sky (his seventh with Paul Libman). He and Paul are two time winners of the Richard Rodgers Award and the ASCAP Award. Dave is the proud father of three amazingly creative kids, Connor, Garen, and Paige. He specifically dedicates Naked Radio to his amazing wife, Gigi, who has shown him such amazing support and belief through his own ‘silver box’ moments.

Other shows written for Northern Sky include No Bones About It (2015, 2016), Strings Attached (2014), Muskie Love (2004, 2005, 2013), A Cabin with a View (2007, 2008), Main-Travelled Roads (2007), and Bing! The Cherry Musical (2011).
