I am beyond excited to announce a new show.. here are the details!!!
After a record sell-out of tickets for the fall season of A Prairie Home Companion, host Garrison Keillor has announced that he’s creating a new, non-broadcast variety show entitled The Rhubarb Show which will be “a club version of the radio show” and will premiere on Saturday, September 21 at 9 p.m., following the broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion at the historic Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul.
Each of the shows will feature some guests from the APHC broadcast, as well as some local talent we’re excited to showcase. Sound effects wizard Fred Newman will be featured each week along with magician Bill Arnold, and musical guests include: Chic Gamine, the Canadian girl group (with a guy drummer), and Katy Vernon (September 21) and a few other surprises.
Tickets for the Rhubarb Show go on sale at noon on Thursday, August 15th. Tickets categories include “Box Seats” (which include wine and desserts) $40.00; $20.00; $10.00 and $5.00. A $2.50 facility fee will be added to the price of each ticket. MPR Members receive a $2 discount on the top two tiered price categories.
