After more than a decade, Big Top Chautauqua’s musical comedy revue Riverpants returns to the stage!

If you’re “fishing” for a good time and want to “reel” with “lunker” laughs, this knee slappin’ musical written by Warren Nelson is sure to do the trick. Well loved by their “piers,” The Trollers will be on hand for mirthful, musical interludes and distractions, Anglin’ Wayne will show you where to find the best fishing holes, while Ole, Lena, and Sven share their vacation stories. From minnows to muskies, this musical features fishing songs, big screen visuals, and a stringer full of bits and skits.

Featuring: Warren Nelson, Ed Willett, Severin Behnen, Phil Anich, Tom Mitchell, Jack Gunderson, Otis McLennon, Betty Ferris, Randy Sabien, Rowan Nelson-Ferris, Liz Woodworth, and Billy Knoblauch.
