Mike and Julie Bateson have been acting together for many years. They have created the Ole and Lena characters from audience comments based on other characters they have created. “Everyone knows an Ole and Lena joke and we enjoy bringing them to life for audiences large and small.”
Every year Lena listens to her friends at the Curler and Chat talk about their vacations; but year after year, she is disappointed. Ole’s idea of a vacation is going to the Muskrat Lodge’s Annual Convention, usually a camping event held in Potsdam, at a park only 2 miles from their farm! This year, Lena has decided that she and Ole are going on a romantic vacation, even if it kills him. Meanwhile, Ole won the grand prize raffle at the Muskrat Lodge, and rumor has it that the grand prize might be a cruise to exotic ports in the Caribbean; something Ole wants no part of.
Will Ole talk Lena into going camping instead of bobbing around on a cruise ship “like a fishing boat in a walleye chop on opening day”? Or will Lena finally get the romantic vacation she has dreamed about. Join in the side splitting fun for the whole family of “Ole and Lena Win a Cruise.”
