“Letters to Santa… ASSEMBLE!”

One Woman.  10 Characters. Viciously Funny.

This critically acclaimed holiday show hits the Bryant Lake Bowl stage at full tilt.  Janelle Ranek is a literal one-woman sketch comedy tour de force.  “Letters to Santa…ASSEMBLE!” is driven by Ranek’s fearless comedy style.  Each character has their own bizarre requests to Santa, some naughty, some nice and some downright ridiculous.  This is NOT your ordinary holiday show.

MacPhail Free Family Music Series: Orkestar Bez Ime

Orkestar Bez Ime [or-KESS-tar behz EE-meh], meaning “orchestra without a name” in Bulgarian, was formed in 2002 to recreate the sounds of the village with a presentation as festive as the music itself. Focusing on Eastern Europe and music of the Rom (“Gypsy”) people, OBI’s repertoire reaches from Albania to Ukraine, with plenty of stops in between. Orkestar Bez Ime is a winner of the 2011-2012 McKnight Artist Fellowships for Performing Musicians administered by MacPhail Center for Music and a recipient of a 2012 Minnesota Emerging Composers Award from the American Composers Forum.
