“The Letter L” is the theme for the upcoming “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show


Mon, Mar 30th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

Every “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show is a unique work of art, carefully and sometimes crazily choreographed around a theme with music, skits, jokes and more. Coming up on Friday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m., the show will feature ‘The Letter L’, on the intimate stage of the St. Mane Theatre. ‘The Letter L’ conjures up many things (including giant colorful fuzzy animals holding large letters) and for this show in particular, it means the Limbo, LEGOS, an “Ode to the Letter L”, Ole & Lena and Lutefisk & Lefse, news from the 1932 Lanesboro Leader, Lines from Lincoln, the history of Lipstick, and much more. Ryan Lee will be our musical guest, performing on guitar and various percussion instrument and vocals. Back Fence songs will include “L. O. V. E.”, “Love Will Keep Us Together”, “Whatever Lola Wants” and an audience sing-along to the Lanesboro High School song, “Onward, Lanesboro”. With Heidi Dybing on the keyboard, Lively host Damon Prestemon will keep the show rolling, managing the stage chaos of Back Fence cast members, sponsor interviews (Batstone CPA and Visit Bluff Country Magazine), audience participation, spontaneous humor, and sing-alongs. Seating starts at 7 p.m. and pre-show music begins at 7:10 p.m. featuring Benny K. Remember to wear appropriate attire to participate in the Limbo contest! This is your chance to win a Lemon pie.
