The Hit Ice Fishing Musical

Buddies Marvin and Lloyd spend a winter’s day in a shanty out on the ice, talking about life, love, and Leinie’s. Guys on Ice has thrilled audiences throughout Wisconsin, as well as in Michigan, Oregon, California, and New York.

‘Tis the season for one of the popular outdoor winter pastimes in Sturgeon Bay, WI… ice fishing! Two long-time friends, Lloyd and Marvin, meet at Marvin’s shanty, as has been their tradition for years. Marvin has exciting news to share. This afternoon, the men will be featured on a local cable TV program about ice-fishing. The next eight hours the men wait for Cubby, the TV host and his camera crew to arrive in the shanty for the interview. Through songs and dance men bond as they dream of becoming local celebrities and all the positive effect this exposure will have on their life, including a Pick ‘n Save cashier whom Marvin been admiring for some time. However,  moods change when local oddball, Ernie the Moocher, shows up to do what he does best, mooch off Marvin and Lloyd’s Midwestern generosity. Ernie, though unbeknownst to him, is generally the bearer of bad news, manners, and self-written diddies. Will Marvin figure out another way to make a good impression on Bonnie the cashier? Can Lloyd put his pride aside to win back his wife’s favor? Where is Cubby? Let us see what a day on the ice brings…

Since 1998, Guys on Ice has played to sold-out houses in Ephraim, Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, Milwaukee and Madison and played for audiences as far away as California, New York and Oregon.
