A collaboration between the Actors Theater of Minnesota and the Cabaret Theater at Camp Bar, the acclaimed 1998 musical Guys on Ice lets viewers experience ice fishing free of mutinous camels and dust storms. Set in a Wisconsin ice shanty, the story follows pals Lloyd and Marvin as they keep warm, anxiously preparing for Marvin’s upcoming TV appearance while fending off beer-snatching intruder Ernie the Moocher. With drinks for purchase and rousing numbers including “The Wishing Hole,” “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit,” and “Fish is the Miracle Food,” audiences are swept up in the action enough to saw holes in the theater floor and attempt to hook squirming basement dwellers.


Though the St. Paul production of Guys on Ice has yet to receive many online reviews, audiences in Boston and Augusta give the musical positive reviews:

Although it’s known for comedies such as the two-man, 24-character A Tuna Christmas, Actors Theater of Minnesota also places a significant emphasis on education and corporate training. At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
