During the last week of August, staying in Baileys Harbor, we had planned to catch outdoor concerts and one or two plays and/or musicals. To say that Victory Farm was delightfully entertaining and thoroughly heartfelt is an understatement. I had stopped at the Visitors Center in Ephraim during an outing and the counter host there indicated that American Folklore Theatre was moving their musical, written by local writers, indoors to the Door County Auditorium, a facility we have attended for the Peninsula Music Festival. I passed on his recommendation to the rest of the group who reacted with some skepticism that we needed to go see a musical called Victory Farm and what was it about anyway? Thankfully, we chose to see it because it was wonderful. It had history, it had great voices backed up by well-written music and it entertained. The play is, as trite as it sounds, a must-see. It was my first experience IN Door County with the American Folklore Theatre even though I have seen their productions on the the road ("Guys on Ice," and "Guys and Does") in Madison and in Baraboo which were entertaining, yes, but more fun and laughs. Victory Farm is that and more. And did I already say the voices were great? Because if I said that ten more times, it would not stress how wonderful the performances were. I know good material is the spine of any good play or musical, but this material was dressed with top-of-the-line voices. If they present this in 2014, GO! It has much history behind it and well worth reading about how WW II POW's were used in agricultural and production settings throughout the US and in particular, as this story shares, for cherry harvest in Door County. I am certain Victory Farm will be brought back. Don't miss it. Did I say ... the voices were wonderful?
