In the 1970s David Seebach spent eight summer seasons at a posh resort, Deer Park Lodge, 17 miles north of Minocqua and Woodruff in Manitowish Waters. That operation is long-gone, but the property has been redeveloped as the Chippewa Retreat Resort and Seebach is returning for three performances on August 15th and 16th. Two Saturday evening shows will be aimed at an adult audience and a Sunday brunch program will be geared for families.
“So many of the routines that I feature today were developed during those important summers,” Seebach remembered. “I quickly learned what worked… and what didn’t!”
He appeared nightly and had to change the magic for guests who stayed 5-7 days.
“My repertoire grew exponentially during that decade.”
August’s offerings will include some of those well-honed favorites plus lots of material that has been added over the years.
