Spend the holidays with the world's worst lounge singers in the hilarious Martini & Olive: Takin' Care of Christmas. If "Silent Night" is a bit too earnest for you, you'll love the ridiculous medleys of '70s hits, groan-inducing choreography, "witty" banter and sparkling array of tacky polyester costumes this over-the-top Midwestern lounge duo cooks up for the holidays. A hit with audiences across the country, Martini & Olive will have you "alternately holding your head in your hands and wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes" (St. Paul Pioneer Press). Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Alive & Kickin
I have been so blessed and nourished in my Musical Theatre career and wanted to give a little back so I volunteered my time and talents and founded A&K in March 2010. I knew it would be something special but what I did not account for was the impact it would have on our members, their families and audiences alike. It has given many a reason to live and many a hope for growing old.
There are so many misconceptions and attitudes towards seniors and this group helps break those down. They are witty, highly intelligent and accepting folk who live each day to the fullest. They are in the moment, unpretentious and don't sweat the small stuff. They are the people who have built this country and have seen it all. They have an understanding, wisdom and zest for life that can only come from decades of experience. They represent many diverse religious, ethnic and economic backgrounds.
Because of the type of music we sing, everything from Hank Williams, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and our favorite, Queen, we are able to bridge that gap between young and old, black and white, gay and straight. Alive & Kickin is an indescribably genuine group and they perform with an raw honesty and vulnerability that is deeply moving and inspiring to all.
They have taught me patience, tolerance and acceptance and to live each day as if it were your last. As they have had and are battling many physical challenges including cancer, heart disease, and failing bodies, I am reminded to love the people in our lives and to be grateful for everyday I'm here Alive & Kickin.
Thanks to a grant from MRAC, numerous fundraisers and generous donations, we have performed at over thirty different venues from Senior Care Facilities, National Senior Conventions and State Capital Rallies. We have been featured on the cover of Southwest Airline's Spirit Magazine, Twin Cities Live as well as receiving the WCCO Making A Difference Award. We have also produced two full length production's: "Coming Of Age " and "Love Is Alive...& KIckin" which both sold out at Old Arizona Theatre in Minneapolis.
Alive & Kickin has now grown to 26 volunteer members. We are a Minnesota 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
We are running all over the Twin Cities sharing our Musical Message and working hard on our new show for Spring 2013, "Flashback".
A Special Thank You to all who have supported us and mostly to the cast of Alive & Kickin. I am blessed and truly inspired by you...
