Northern Sky theater, formerly the American Folklore Theatre, has submitted a petition to the Town of Gibraltar Plan Commission, the Gibraltar Town Board and the Door County Planning Department for a zoning change. The petition requests rezoning of a 17-acre parcel of land on the southeast corner of County A and E in Fish Creek from countryside to commercial zoning. The property is currently owned by Stella Maris Parish. Northern Sky hopes to purchase the land and construct a rehearsal and operations center. While the company will continue to perform its summer season at Peninsula State Park, the project is intended to improve its ability to create, produce and support all aspects of the organization that happen behind the scenes. Northern Sky currently operates from a host of rented facilities spread all over the county. It has its business office in Ephraim, shop and costume space in Baileys Harbor, rental space in Egg Harbor, and, storage space in Fish Creek.
