EAGLE RIVER, Wis.—Headwaters Council for the Performing Arts (HCPA) is bringing to the Northland Pines High School stage the hilarious musical, “Guys & Does,” Saturday, Jan. 7.
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. with doors open at 7. The school doors are open at 6 p.m. for those wishing to purchase tickets at the door.
“Make it a night out with your friends, hunters and non-hunters alike,” said Lori Hahn, HPCA vice president.
“This is a great show at a great price. If you were to travel to Wausau, your ticket could cost you twice the amount for the same show.”
This musical is one of American Folklore Theatre’s (AFT) most famous productions. This Door County-based non-profit professional theatre creates musicals produced coast-to-coast, including the mega-hit “Guys on Ice. “
“The situations have the audience in stitches and the story line is very imaginative” says Hahn. “It’s been a couple of years since we had the great ‘Guys On Ice’ musical and HCPA Board thought it would great to bring the guys back in another great show,” she added.
“This performance is not part of the regular season ticket, so anyone may purchase a ticket to see the performance.”
Promising “more bang for the buck,” Guys & Does tells the story of Fritz Dingleheimer, a paper-mill worker eager to escape his dull routine by taking a hunting trip to the northern pines.
But he finds himself traveling with Duane Puddles, a local oddball who knits and loves self-help books.
Duane wants to marry Fritz’s daughter, Susie, and hopes to gain his blessing on the trip. Along the way, the two hunters encounter a magical talking deer.
This musical comedy is definitely a show for hunters and non-hunters alike, exploring various approaches to this ancient, vital practice and the role of the hunter in a changing world, said Hahn.
Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Flour Sack on West Pine Street in Eagle River for $25 per person or at the door the night of the show. For additional information, call (715) 891-0927 or (715) 479-7249.
