COVID-19 protocols still evident

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – There’s finally a bit of a pulse for live, in-person performances in Northeastern Wisconsin after months of COVID-19.

Here is a look at some of the productions that are in the works.

Everything can change on a dime as we well know, but the situation is better than last year at this time.

+ The Green Bay Botanical Garden will host outdoor concerts.

Included is the Weidner Philharmonic in a tongue-in-cheek program May 23.

+ Northern Sky Theater of Door County will offer shows at its outdoor and indoor theaters.

In-person action starts with Katie Dahl’s “The Fisherman’s Daughters” starting June 14.

+ St. Norbert College in De Pere will present two musicals this summer.

They are “The Curtain Rises Again” in July and “SpongeBob Squarepants” in August.

+ Birch Creek Music Performance Center has switched to outdoor concerts this summer.

The four series – 28 concerts – start in June at the Dutton Concert Barn.

+ Let Me Be Frank Productions show troupe of Green Bay is continuing its live, in-person shows.

The next one is “Bays of Our Lives” starting June 11 at the Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay.
