Guys on Ice, the beloved - and hilarious - Wisconsin musical theater tradition, is coming to Wisconsin Public Television (WPT). The program premieres 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4 on the statewide network.

 

Since its theatrical debut in 1998, Guys on Ice has become a Wisconsin musical tradition. Enchanting audiences of all ages, the play has drawn fans to productions at theNorthern Sky Theater in Door County’s Peninsula State Park and on stages across the state and beyond.

 

Join Marvin and Lloyd inside their ice fishing shanty for a hilarious look at life, love and the pursuit of the perfect catch – even when the fish aren’t biting. Laugh and sing along with classic songs like “The Wishing Hole,” “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit” and “The One That Got Away.”

 

Recorded at Northern Sky Theater in summer 2014 and starring Doug Mancheski and Steve Koehler, this is the first time the musical, written by Fred Alley and James Kaplan, has been captured on video.

 

Funding for Guys on Ice on Wisconsin Public Television provided by MMG Foundation, Inc., Dwight & Linda Davis Foundation, Ministry Door County Medical Center, Annie & Dick Egan, Stanley J. Cottrill Fund, Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant & Butik, On Deck Clothing Company, and Friends of Wisconsin Public Television.
