‘The Brokken & Davis Comedy Minute’ debuted on the August show, featuring Paul Brokken and LAC executive director John Davis. They’ll be back onstage for another ‘Minute’ in September. Pictured here with back-up singers Sandy Webb and Laura Nelson, and a glimpse of Damon Prestemon and Barb Keith laughing in the background...those guys ARE funny!

‘Names’ is the theme for the upcoming “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show, held on Friday, September. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre in Lanesboro, Minn. We’ll have everything from ‘Sara Cynthia Sylvia Stout’ (Silverstein’s ‘Would Not Take the Garbage Out’) to ‘Jimmy Jet’ to ‘John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt’...with poems, songs and skits performed onstage by our talented local cast members. In the sponsor interview, we’ll talk with Katelin Ehler from Olivia’s Attic. Guests onstage will include musician Ravensfire, the Root River Revelers and the Brokken & Davis Comedy Minute. We will also hear from folks about the weekend’s busy events in Lanesboro (September 14-15), including Taste of the Trail, the Vintage Baseball Game, Nancy Huisenga’s Artist Reception, and the Silent Movies in the Park After Dark. (Wow, this is a lot going on! Check Lanesboro.com for specific dates & times.)

Host Damon Prestemon will keep guests coming and going onstage, and Maria Kujawa Klingsheim will be at the keyboard. Come early! Clayton Severson will provide pre-show music beginning at 7:10 p.m.

The “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show is a program of Lanesboro Arts Center, onstage at the St. Mane Theatre on second Fridays February through November.
