Professor C.C. Heintzeman was a visionary educator who used music to change the lives of Minneapolis factory-working boys in the early 1900s. In playwright Dominic Orlando's world-premiere musical, romance, patriotism and the approaching thrum of World War I weave together in a celebration of Heintzeman's life and the rough-and-tumble young men who formed the Working Boys Band under his tutelage. Put on by History Theatre, a company devoted to exploring the rich history of Minnesota, Working Boys Band is a tribute to the power of music, compassion and discipline. Learn More

A heart-warming musical about a German-American shipping captain and his crew who braved the icy waters of Lake Michigan to bring Tannenbäume (Christmas trees) to the immigrant families of Chicago. Heartfelt storytelling — with wonderful music and dance — captures the true spirit of the holidays, celebrating the joy of giving and the importance of sharing traditions between generations and between neighbors.
