AMANA - Four manly lumberjacks living the bachelor life in their northern Wisconsin camp seem perfectly happy tucked away from civilization - and women. But, when a mail-order bride is mistakenly sent for, everything changes. Join Minnesota Slim, Dirty Bob, Muskrat, Moonlight and The Kid as they tell the wonders and woes of being a lumberjack in love with songs like "The Bachelor's Prayer," "Stupid Love" and "Could It Be Cabin Fever?"
"Lumberjacks in Love" opens Aug. 1 on the Main Stage of The Old Creamery Theatre. Written by Fred Ally and James Kaplan, the authors of "Guys On Ice," "Lumberjacks in Love" is directed by Krista Neumann of Iowa City.
