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.
- It's pure comedic entertainment that filled the Barn with laughs. The audience gave a rousing standing ovation at the end. – Mark Wedel, mlive.com, 06/03/2009
Actors Theater of Minnesota

At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
