Deaths Door Knockers Improv

This community group is constantly seeking and engaging folks wanting to 1- try something new, 2- enjoy some good belly laughs, 3- identify or work on their theatrical skills, and 4- play seriously. 

Utilizing “Second City” training methods and improv games, the KNOCKERS create original sketch comedy scripts. They produce and share some of them on their DOOR COUNTY COMEDY YouTube channel. Most of them they laugh about and move on. Who knows, one day they will put on a show. It’s about playing like a kid.

Those interested in finding out more may visit the group’s facebook page or email The group meets weekly in the INSIDE/OUT space at the Margaret Lockwood Gallery.

Write On, Door County

Margaret Lockwood Gallery and its INSIDE/OUT space is the Sturgeon Bay satellite location for several Write On activities, programs and events each season. These promote the Write On mission of inspiring people to write and share their stories.

The Gallery brings together artists and poets on a quarterly basis to respond to each other’s work. Both the Gallery and the Inside/Out space are frequent settings for readings, author conversations, writing workshops, and conference break-out sessions.

Isadoora Theatre Company

The INSIDE/OUT black box space in Margaret Lockwood Gallery’s lower level is the home of the Isadoora Theatre Company. 

Isadoora presents “adventurous” productions that celebrate theatre through its basic elements of movement, music, story and thought. Until the virus crisis the ensemble offered 4 productions each year with frequent script reading sessions and open tryouts. Usually, at least, one of the productions would go “on the road” within the region.  

Currently there are plans to find ways to safely engage our theatrical talent with sophisticated theatre-goers in Door County. We may try a production in the outdoor tiered amphitheater. Scripts from the community and through the Playwriters’ Collective are welcome for consideration.

Information about production schedules, tryouts and performances can be found on-line at and the facebook page.
