Through July 19 – Guys on Ice   

Guys on IceYou’ve seen them. Little wooden shanties sitting on lake ice. Puffs of smoke rising from chimney pipes. On a quiet day, maybe the static of a tinny radio filters through plywood walls, across the frozen tundra, back to shore. In a cold world, on a cold day, on a frozen lake, these little signs of life are all most people know of a secret culture that thrives right here amongst us. Well wonder no more as we bring you Fred Alley’s wildly popular tale of the secret world of ice fishermen.

GUYS ON ICE spends a day in the life of Marvin and Lloyd – fishing buddies and home grown philosophers. And now this Wisconsin favorite gets the full Fireside treatment that will keep you laughing from start to finish. Don’t miss this side-splitting musical comedy, guaranteed to thaw out your funny bone with songs like “The Wishing Hole,” “Ode to the Snowmobile Suit,” “Fish is a Miracle Food,” and “The One That Got Away.”
