Several years ago, my husband and I stumbled across the American Folklore Theater during a visit to Door County WI. We loved seeing Muskie Love so much that we also got tickets to see Cheeseheads, the Musical. This summer (2013) we decided to return to Door County mostly to see more American Folklore Theater! And once again, we loved it! This time we purchased tickets for Loose Lips Sink Ships and Windjammers before our trip. Once in Door County, we also bought tickets for Muskie Love, which is our FAVORITE! (Even if you are not a
GB Packer fan!)
Don't miss this gem in the woods! You will be delighted by this family friendly, fun theater group!

Original theater with a local flavor, a beautiful outdoor theater, and priced under $20. There's even freshly popped popcorn. What more could you want?

Awesome experience for one and all. If you are visiting the Door Peninsula, American Folklore Theater is a must do if time permits! Wonderful drive through Peninsula Park, which is the most gorgeous State Park in the state of Wisconsin. Short walk to awesome outdoor theater where the music, singing, stories and outstanding talent will knock your socks off! Enjoy!!

If you like theatre then this is an experience you should have at least once. It's outside, which is nice, and the seating is well planned. However, I suggest you bring a blanket and/or something soft to sit on. The musicians and singers are good, and the entertainment is light and fun. It's not Broadway, but they do a very good job and all of the talent is local. The writers embrace the local culture and you will most likely hear about The Packers, cheese, and Illinois. Support your local arts and see the show!
