CLICK, CLACK, MOO
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 10am and Noon

When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a "tech-free zone." He confiscates her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. "No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!" So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" new musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre presents
RIP VAN WINKLE
Thursday, April 9, 2015 - 10am

Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theatre presents their original musical adaptation of Washington Irving's classic, Rip Van Winkle. This unique combination of talented puppeteers and actors brings a new perspective to the tale.

Nine-foot-tall puppets take Irving's great adventure to new heights with singing, dancing and, yes, even bowling with the boys of the Catskill Mountains! Sleepy Rip Van Winkle is joined on stage with his sweet daughter Sarah, his faithful huntin' dog Wolfie, Dame Van Winkle, the Pirate and his Pegleg Parrot, Soldier Boy Harry, and Captain Henry Hudson and his crew.

While some men work for a better tomorrow, Rip Van Winkle is easily distracted by the lure of having fun today. He learns a difficult lesson that by sleeping his life away, his dreams slip away too. His life has passed him by.

It's classic literature at its best.

Suitable for Kindergarten – 4th grade.

AN EVENING WITH
GARRISON KEILLOR

Sunday, April 12, 2015 - 7pm
A solo performance perfect for The Grand! The acclaimed host of A Prairie Home Companion shares hilarious anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon, and "late-life fatherhood." With a wonderfully dry sense of humor (and sometimes with music), Keillor captivates audiences using his unique blend of comedy, class, charisma, and wisdom.
