Release: American Folklore Theatre (AFT) announces ticket sales for the 2014 Summer and Fall Seasons in Door County, Wisconsin.
This season includes three musicals playing in rotating repertory at their outdoor amphitheater in Peninsula State Park and a Fall run of The Bachelors at the Door Community Auditorium in Fish Creek.
Strings Attached, a world premiere commissioned by AFT and written by Dave Hudson and Colin Welford, is described as a "tuneful tale of tangled twins." In this case, one twin ends up a ukulele fanatic in Hawaii while the other becomes part of a family banjo dynasty in Wisconsin. The two worlds intertwine in musical merriment and mayhem at a northern Wisconsin lodge.
Strings Attached plays Mondays at 8pm, Wednesdays at 8:30 PM, and Fridays at 8PM.
Packer Fans from Outer Space makes a visit to AFT after a hiatus of eleven years. This "Cosmic Musical that Tackles the Heart", by Frederick Heide, Lee Becker and James Kaplan, was AFT's biggest hit ever in 2002, when it made its debut. Since then the show has had multiple productions around Wisconsin, including a run at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in Milwaukee in 2012 that received critical raves.
Packer Fans from Outer Space plays Wednesdays at 6PM, Thursdays at 8PM, and Saturdays at 8:30 PM.
Playing in repertory with Strings Attached and Packer Fans from Outer Space will be the fan-favorite Guys On Ice.
"This is undoubtedly our most-requested show ever and hasn't played on our summer stage for seven years. So we felt it was time for another visit into the world of Marvin, Lloyd, and Ernie the Moocher," stated Artistic Director, Jeffrey Herbst. Guys on Ice returns to the fishing hole for a couple of nights each week.
Guys On Ice plays Tuesdays at 8PM and Saturdays at 6PM.
American Folklore Theatre's Summer Season runs from June 11th - August 23rd at the Amphitheater in Peninsula State Park. General admission tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for teens, and $6 for children 12 and under. Reserved seats are $7 more per ticket. There is no park sticker required to attend performances in the State Park.
The Bachelors, makes its debut at the Door Community Auditorium in the fall. This follow up to Guys On Ice, by Fred Alley and James Kaplan, celebrates the realm of bachelorhood through the lens of Stew and John, hapless bumblers in search of love in Madison, Wisconsin.
American Folklore Theatre's Fall Season runs August 29th - October 18th at the Door Community Auditorium in Fish Creek. Tickets for The Bachelors are $27 for adults and $13 for children 12 and under.
Casting will be announced soon.
Tickets for both the summer and fall season are on sale now at the AFT box office at the Green Gables shops in north Ephraim, via phone at (920) 854-6117, and online at www.FolkloreTheatre.com.
American Folklore Theatre is a non-profit professional theatre organization that produces original musical shows in repertory from June through August. AFT continues its performances into the fall with shows at the Door Community Auditorium and town halls September through October and over the Christmas holiday.
