A group of dynamic dancers from Minneapolis have hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes and a big brass band, bringing their high-energy show, Feet Don't Fail Me Now, to the Ames Center stage. Heatbox, the human beat box, joins the swingin' seven-piece band Root City to accompany each shuffle and stomp as the tappers let loose on everything from sand to folding chairs. This joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance mixes funk, salsa and more into a theatrical event that won Rhythmic Circus the prestigious Edinburgh Festival "Spirit of the Fringe" Award in 2012.

Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, one of the most popular holiday traditions, comes to the Burnsville Performing Arts Center for five performances only complete with the spectacular sets, costumes, props and special effects created for the 2008 Kodak Theatre production in Los Angeles that starred Christopher Lloyd and John Goodman. The narration was recorded for this production in London in 1992 by the legendary Academy Award-winning actor Sir John Gielgud. Be sure to enjoy this classic tale of redemption…..for kids…and kids at heart
