‘Red Hot’ will be the theme at this month’s “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show, on Friday, June 12, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. Previews of upcoming summertime community theater productions “Mary Poppins” and “Little Shop of Horrors” and songs like “Roses are Red”, “That Old Lucky Sun”, and “Red Hot and Blue” will all be part of a lively evening of original skits, jokes, trivia, music and fun. The show will also feature original stories & humor from naturalist Al Batt of the Albert Lea area, and traditional music from nationally acclaimed Decorah-based Scandinavian folk trio The Foot-Notes. Host Damon Prestemon will do what he does best - keep the show rolling with wit at its quick pace while spontaneously responding to the humor and the audience. Musicians Michelle Lynn & Adam Ptacek will provide pre-show music beginning at 7:10 p.m. from their Homestead Act collection of original historical fiction songs based on obscure (yet interesting) stories, locations, and people that don’t often make their way into our awareness through traditional history class. Doors open for seating at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $8 each and can be purchased online at www.lanesboroarts.org, in person at the Lanesboro Arts Gallery (103 Parkway Ave N), or at the door at the St. Mane Theatre beginning at 6:30 p.m. on show nights.

“Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show, now in its 21st season, is a program of Lanesboro Arts, onstage at the St. Mane Theatre on the second Fridays of March through November in 2015.
