Brian Wicklund is returning to the Valley with The Fiddle Masters on Friday, June 17th, 8:00 PM at the Osceola High School Auditorium. Wicklund is bringing his world-renowned string masters to the stage to kick off Festival Theatre’s summer season. St. Croix Valley native and internationally-known fiddler Brian Wicklund has hosted his wildly successful American Fiddle Camps in Stillwater, MN for the past six years. He brings in master musicians from around the country to teach at his camps. Wicklund will be joined this year by Katie McNally, Natalie Padilla, Shauncey Ali, Joe K. Walsh, Mike Cramer, and Kevin Rowe.This combination of artists changes every year to offer a one of kind concert presented by Festival Theatre. Tickets are $26 in advance and $35 at the door, and are flex pass eligible.
And once again, Ole and Lena return to Festival Theatre for Wannigan Days. The comedy duo will perform two shows of “Ole and Lena at the State Fair” on Sunday, June 12th at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM. The calendar has finally turned over to Ole’s favorite event of the year - State Fair time. Unfortunately, Lena doesn’t share Ole’s excitement. For years Lena has been in countless competitions with her arch rival Elaine Danielson, always battling, only to end up with a tie for the coveted blue ribbons. But this year Lena has a new trick up her sleeve that she’s sure will tip the balance in her favor.
Ole, on the other hand, has his own fair surprise this year. Ole heard on CCO that Sweet Martha makes a truck load of money at the fair so Ole and Sven have decided they are going to turn the Fair into a money making operation with a food stand of their own. Their goal is to come up with something they can stuff on a stick and get them on TV.But when it comes time for the leave for the Fair, Lena is nowhere to be found. Can Ole find Lena in time to spring her surprise on arch nemesis Elaine? Tickets are $21 in advance and $31 at the door, the show will take place at the Franklin Square Black Box, and will sell out quickly.
