The traditional “turning of the soil,” signifying the beginning of a construction project, went off without a hitch Sunday on a piece of land located at the corner of County A and F in Fish Creek, the site of the proposed two-building campus for the Northern Sky Theater. The ground-breaking ceremony marks the start of work on the production and storage facility, administrative offices and theater. The company plans to open the theater with a premier show for the 2019 fall season. John Sawyer and Craig Coursin of Carlson/Erickson builders are the lead contractors on the project. Despite the development of a year-round facility, Northern Sky has no plans to abandon performances at Peninsula State Park. In fact, fundraising continues to provide the dollars needed to pay for upgrades at the company’s home base at the popular state park.
