Lanesboro, Minn. – It’s a circus-themed ‘Big Top’ show this month for the “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show, on Friday, August 8, 2014, 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. The ‘Big Top’ show will feature circus antics, poems, jokes, songs like ‘Send in the Clowns’ and ‘Flying Trapeze’, skits, juggling, and more. The Rutabaga Brothers will rock the stage as the featured musical guest, with Damon Prestemon on keyboard, Gary Marcoux on guitar, Lee Loerch on harmonica, Craig Johnson on drums, and Dave Harrenstein on bass. Back by popular demand will be the Brokken & Davis Comedy Minute, complete with their trademark jingle sung by Back Fence women. Our lively host Damon Prestemon will keep the show rolling, managing the stage chaos of Back Fence cast members, sponsor interviews (this month with Thrivent Financial and Green Gables Inn), audience participation, spontaneous humor, and sing-alongs. Seating starts at 7 p.m. and pre-show music begins at 7:10 p.m. featuring Tim Fast.
