Lumberjacks in Love

Directed by Caitlin Lowans, Music Direction by Jerry McCauley II

September 15, 2022- October 9, 2022 

Thursday through Sunday at 7:30pm, Saturday Matinee at 2pm, Sunday Matinee at 4pm 

Lumberjacks living in semi-unwashed bliss find their rustic bachelor lifestyle disrupted by the arrival of a spunky mail order bride. The ensuing musical madness celebrates the flannels we wear, the families we choose, and the unexpected twists that just might change everything.

Lumberjacks in Love promises a heart of gold wrapped in layers of cross-dressing, mistaken identities, romantic entanglements, high-country hijinks, and of course more flannel than Breckenridge in September. Featuring actors playing their own musical instruments, it's the best musical you’ll see about lumberjacks this year, featuring perhaps the only song you’ll ever hear about “a buncha naked lumberjacks chopping down trees.” Don’t miss out!
