There is a very special addition to the 2010-2011 Broadway/San Diego Season roster! For one afternoon only, the rabid fans of A Prairie Home Companion with hostGarrison Keillor will be able to become part of their beloved show in a Live Broadcast at San Diego Civic Theatre, onSaturday, February 26, 2011 at2:45PM. For those lucky San Diegans for whom there cannot be enough time spent in Lake Wobegon, there is a special Premium Ticket that includes an opportunity to attend rehearsal from noon – 1:30PM and an APHC Fan Reception between the rehearsal and the show (limited availability). Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, November 15 at 10AM.
Actress Sue Scott, Tim Russell (the man of many voices), and sound-effects wizard Fred Newmanwill be on hand, along with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, led by pianist Richard Dworsky. Special guests will be announced closer to the engagement. And of course, everyone can catch up on the news from Lake Wobegon during Keillor’s signature monologue.
