Midwest Living Review

Barb Sanford
A loyal community and enthusiastic summer audiences have made this theater a Door County institution for more than 70 years.

This open-air theater between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek is said to be the oldest professional resident summer theatre in the country. Its industrious cast and crew produce a spate of Broadway plays and musicals during a busy summer season stretching June through October.

The setting in the woods on the shores of Green Bay is gorgeous. In 2005, a beautiful year-round building with plush seats replaced the old canvas tent that previously contained director’s chairs, a sand floor and some resident bats. The theater now has side walls that can close and radiant-floor heat, making these digs almost impervious to cool northern weather (although it can get warm and muggy inside).

At intermission, everyone heads for the bar, outdoor tables and a giant bonfire to watch the sun set over Green Bay. With a display like that, the second act seems like an encore. Most tickets run $30 to $35.
