The Minnesota Centennial Showboat Players bring their famed melodramatic touch to the Robert Louis Stevenson classic about a good doctor who struggles with some very bad impulses in pursuit of a dark figure who's been terrorizing London. Now celebrating its 56th season of over-the-top family fun, the company invites you to get involved in the action by booing the baddies and cheering the heroes. You'll also be entertained by a number of director Vern Sutton's patented musical olios, song-and-dance interludes straight out of vaudeville. Plus, the Showboat theater itself is filled with vintage charm, including painted scenery, footlights and plenty of stage magic. Learn More

I DID attend this event. The hardest part about the who process was filling out this review - took me 3 tries. Kept coming up as having not attended. Anyway - loved the show. Lots of fun. Men or women can relate to the story and setting. Superbly cast-particularly Jim Bitney as Albert Soady. Humorous script by actor/writer Jeff Daniels. Wonderful showboat venue on the beautiful river with the fall colors.
_Escanaba in da Moonlight _
a hilarious comedy by Jeff Daniels
Set on the eve of the opening day of deer season in 1989, Escanaba in da Moonlight tells the story of Reuben Soady, the only son in a family of Upper Peninsula hunters, never to bag a buck. Joined by his pop Albert, brother Remnar, and local oddball Jimmer Negamanee, Reuben is hoping to get his shot and shed the mantle of the buckless yooper. But before dawn approaches, the arrival of a strange DNR ranger and a series of strange occurrences threaten Reubens ultimate goal. Will he bag the buck? Or go down in family history as a failure?
