Buy Tickets to "Song of the Canyon Kid"


Final melodrama of our summer season:

"Song of the Canyon Kid" or "Poem on the Range" written by Scott Cherney and directed by Denise Ruemping, playing August 18 - September 9, 2017

The "Canyon Kid," our western version of a (mostly) virtuous nomad, has returned home to Dirt Clod, Missouri, and not a moment too soon! It seems Judge Basil Kadaver has the town on edge for fear of being placed at the edge of his gallows. And no doubt about it, life around Judge Kadaver is truly a taxing experience - and we mean literally! Can Canyon Kid cancel Kadaver's caustic calamities? More important, will his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, dare to drop her betrothal with Sheriff Dalton Doolin?

Adult tickets are $10. Reduced Rate tickets are $8. Reservations at (507) 635-5420 or purchase online

Note: The run of this show ends Saturday, September 9. There is not a matinee performance on September 10. Please enjoy the Marigold Days parade on Sunday the 10th!




"Nevermore - The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe" written and composed by Jonathan Christenson and directed by Sarah Schaller, playing October 6 - October 29, 2017
