Guys on Ice

Book and lyrics by Fred Alley, Music by James Kaplan

This charming play tells the story of two ice fishing buddies from Northern Wisconsin who talk and sing about life, love, and the one that got away.

From their ice fishing shanty, long-time pals Lloyd and Marvin keep warm with a mutual appreciation for good bait, cold beer, and the Green Bay Packers. As Marvin anxiously awaits his opportunity to appear on a cable TV fishing show and share secrets of his life on da lake, Lloyds ponders a recent squabble with his wife concerning plans to spend their anniversary at Lambeau Field. Both pals scramble to protect their cold ones from fellow angler Ernie the Moocher.

With musical numbers like “De Wishing Hole,” “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit,” and “Fish is de Miracle Food,” Guys on Ice will charm your wool socks off. The Green Bay Press-Gazette said, “It’s Wisconsiny. It’s also surprisingly touching.”
