I am excited to participate in Sample Night Live on December 4th, at the History Theatre, in downtown Saint Paul. Sample Night Live presents a dozen short samples of quality performing arts events, plus a visual arts installation on the first Wednesday of each month. Audiences use the playbill to opt in to the groups they love. It’s a great way to learn about quality work that is happening in the arts scene and discover something new! Plus, if you show up and vote for me, I could win the title of Audience Favorite of the month! Everyone who shows up gets the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to The Ordway, The Guthrie, original art work, CDs, and many other prizes donated by the groups performing that evening. Plus, everyone leaves with a goody bag filled with freebies and discount coupons to shows and events all over town. Act I is Rated-G, Act II is Unrated; and kids get in FREEUse Discount Code MEMBERS and get $5 off admission online. Buy tickets, check out the line-up and see the complete list of prizes at”
