  • What a fabulous show. The performers are so talented. The story incredibly well-written and compelling. Just thoroughly enjoyed the show. We've been to several Northern Sky shows, and each time...  more »
  • The performance greatly exceeded our expectations! Staff was well organized, helped everyone get parked and find the trail to the amphitheater. Seats were great and the show was just wonderful...  more »
  • Since we started coming up here three years ago, we can't get enough of Northern Star Theater, We come up for a week and go to all the shows. This year we hit all three shows on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. the weather was perfect and the plays were outstanding. It's so intimate, we feel that we know the actors. The shows are always funny, but they are able to grab your feelings and bring you into the story as if you were there. The campfire sing along after is always fun and you get to learn more about the people that make the magic happen. We even plan on coming back up in September to see their first indoor fall show in the new theater. Can't wait.
  • We love Northern Sky Theatre! We just saw our fourth show "We Like It Where?". The show was well done. The theme is clever. The tunes are catchy. The stagecraft is simple but effective. The acting, singing, and dancing are well integrated. The location is naturally beautiful. The presentation is appropriate for the whole family, so we can all laugh together. We enthusiastically recommend Northern Sky Theatre and look forward to our next visit!
