Guys on Ice – Sunday Matinee

Back by popular demand, Guys On Ice is the nation’s favorite ice-fishing musical comedy. From their shanty, ice-fishing buddies Marvin (original cast member Doug Mancheski) and Lloyd (Fond du Lac Native Steve Koehler) sing about life, love, and the one that got away. This hilarious piece of Wisconsin anthropology will once again charm your wool socks off. Join Marvin and Lloyd for one more historic day on the ice. From their ice fishing shanty, the long-time pals 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 the secrets of his life on da’ lake, Lloyd ponders a recent squabble with his wife over plans to spend their anniversary at Lambeau Field.
 
Both pals scramble to protect their cold Leinie’s from fellow angler, Ernie the Moocher (Dan Klarer). Anyone who has ever been curious about those little plywood shanties sitting on lake ice and what goes on inside them should find all questions answered in this heartwarming and witty musical comedy. Accompanist Kyle Nelson returns!

Sold-out houses in Wisconsin and across the country have enjoyed this whirlwind ice-fishing tale, gaining wisdom about everything from the attributes of a snowmobile suit to romancing the checkout girl at the local grocery store. With songs such as “The Wishing Hole” and “Fish is the Miracle Food”, Guys on Ice isn’t just a musical – it’s a journey through the secret culture of Northern Wisconsin ice fishermen. Anyone who has ever been curious about those little plywood shanties sitting on lake ice and what goes on inside them should find all questions answered in this heartwarming and witty musical comedy.

Fred Alley, the book and lyric writer of the show, starred as Lloyd in the premiere presentation of the show, along with Doug Mancheski, as Marvin.
