Story by Fred Alley and James Kaplan

Four burly lumberjacks live in a state of manly bliss at the Haywire Lumber Camp in Northern Wisconsin – until an encounter with a plucky mail order bride interrupts life as they know it. The result is big belly laughs and beautiful music.

Making another one-show-a-week appearance in 2018, but this time around the audience is invited to sing along and dress up as inspired by the show.
Thursdays @ 6pm*
*Saturday, June 16th showing @ 6pm
