Working Boys Band in Broadway WORKING BOYS BAND
History Theatre
In a world before child labor laws, many young people got factory jobs to help their families get by. One visionary educator saw music as a way to bring structure and meaning into the lives those children and so in 1918 Professor C. C. Heintzman formed the Working Boys Band. Through music, discipline, and compassion, the Professor shaped a rough-and-tumble group of young men into a Twin Cities institution. This world premiere musical celebrates the place of music in the lives of young people with a flourish of romance, a crescendo of patriotism, and the growing drumbeat of the approaching Great War.

The Red Velvet Cake War in Broadway THE RED VELVET CAKE WAR
Lyric Arts Main Street Stage
In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, written by Hope, Jones, and Wooten-also known for The Dixie Swim Club and Hallelujah Girls-the three Verdeen cousins could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Gaynelle is one frazzled nerve away from a spectacular meltdown. Peaches is struggling to decide if it's time to have her long-absent trucker husband declared dead. And Jimmie Wyvette is resorting to extreme measures to outmaneuver a priss-pot neighbor for the affections of the town's newest widower. But the cousins can't back out of hosting the reunion now. And, unfortunately, they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. As this fast-paced romp by barrels toward its uproarious climax, you'll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!
