The Peninsula Players is America’s oldest resident summer theater, and has a history which is as captivating as the plays staged at the theater during the past 79 years. And it began simply with “two planks and a passion.”

Patrons have returned year after year, drawn by the theater’s tradition of providing exceptional professional productions of classic and contemporary literature. They are also delighted by the talent of its acting company and the theater’s serene location along the shores of Green Bay.

We at DoorCountyNavigator.com have enjoyed performance after performance at this wonderful theatre in the garden.  The staging, lighting and performances are always top-notch.  We know you will enjoy these plays in a unique venue.  And the sunsets from here, the gorunds, the outdoor bar - all spectacular!

 

DoorCountyNavigator.com loves this place!  And you will too.  See whatever is playing when you are in town and you will not be disappointed!

Scehdule of Performances for this 2017 Season:

The Actuary
      June 13 – July 2, 2017

The Actuary

June 13 – July 2, 2017

Romance, marriage, family – told in reverse!   Ed Brooks is an actuary and considers himself the most boring man in the world.  He and his loving wife Barb, an enthusiastic sales leader for Bonnie Bay Cosmetics who drives a purple Cadillac, attend a baby shower for their daughter Tabitha, due in four days. At the shower is her husband Lyle (in the middle of developing a killer app called Whozit) and their close friends Avery and Richard, who are engaged to be married. The highlight of the party is to be the “Baby Shower Bombshell,” a sealed envelope Ed has brought telling them whether it’s a boy or a girl.  The envelope is opened and the surprising news within jolts the party guests. Being the kind of guy nobody notices actually helps as Ed takes us backward in time to show us how the family got to this point. The Actuary is about family, it’s about love and it’s about a man who discovers that, perhaps, he is not so boring as he thought.

The Bridges of Madison County: 

July 26 – August 13, 2017

The Bridges of Madison County

July 26 – August 13, 2017

Roads traveled, doors opened, bridges crossed.  A ravishingly beautiful and lush Tony Award-winning musical based on the best-selling novel. Developed by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) and Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, The Color Purple) this musical captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if…?”  It is the touching story of Francesca, a lovely Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy. She is looking forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm as her family heads to the 1965 Indiana State Fair when ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions. What happens in those next four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.

Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime

August 16 – September 3, 2017Lord Arthur Savile's Crime

August 16 – September 3, 2017

Love, honor, duty and murder. Before Lord Arthur can wed the lovely Sybil Merton, his future mother-in-law insists that Podgers, the current darling of Victorian society, read his palm to see if Lord Arthur is suitable enough to marry her beautiful daughter. Surprisingly, Podgers privately informs Arthur that he is destined to commit a murder! Only desiring a happily married life, Arthur tells his butler, Baines, that he feels duty-bound to get the murder over with first. After all, he says, “It would be unfair to Sybil if I murdered somebody after we were married.” They end up partnering with the cheerful anarchist Winkelkopf, who loves bombs, but attempt after attempt fails. They plot, plan, scheme and conspire to bump off family members, and try to do it as properly as well-mannered English gentlemen can, but Arthur’s relatives remain unwittingly and blissfully alive!

Almost, Maine

Almost, Maine

September 6 – October 15, 2017
Welcome to Almost, Maine – a tiny village so far north it is almost in Canada. On a clear, cold and moonless night, while the northern lights dance overhead, the residents of this mythical town find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes that is somewhere between what The New York Post calls “Norman Rockwell and Our Town … the show offers a sweetness and a decency that’s become rare at the theater … it’s a welcome breath of fresh air.” Hearts are broken, but the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
