Hello Everyone,
Greeting from the Red Barn Theatre Company.  Wait until you see the fun we have in store for you with our next show.  The only thing I can say is "You bet". 
We take you on a little trip to da nort country.  And dere we find da Lost Walleye Lodge, run by dem nice folks da Humde's.  Well, now Lucy, ya know, she's the wife, and Ed, now he's da husband.  It's been a pretty good deal so far, accordin ta Ed.  Well anyways, one day Lucy just up an says "Ed", talking to her husband Ed now.  "Ed", she says, "I tink it could be fun ta teach some a dese flatlanders dat come up here a fishin a ting or two aboot where there coming.".  And den Ed says, "Yahbut, but we're such plain and simple folks, ya really tink dey'd be intrested in learnin aboot us and da way we do tings, do (though)?" 
Well let me tell you, these folks are so far from plain and simple I would have trouble driving there.  The regional vernacular, customs and gastronomic delights that have become things of legend, make for a hilarious evening with the Humde's.  Along with their daughter Darlene, their handyman Russ Renner, Miller Johnson and Donny Elmsted who are the band for the lessons, the Humde's lead you in what they think are the most important lessons in becoming a Minnesotan.  With songs like Hotdish Hallelujah, The Ballad of Darlene Humde, The One That Got Away, and It's Probably Love, you will be hard pressed to leave without humming one of them.  So, if you are from Minnesota (or any of the surrounding 5 states), know someone who is from Minnesota, or have flown over Minnesota, run, don't walk to the phone and make your reservations for one of the most entertaining evenings you will have all year. 
Classes (the show) open January 6th and run through the 29th, with Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 and Sunday matinees at 2:00.  Tickets are $16 for general admission, $13 for seniors, students and military, and groups of 10 or more are $10 per ticket.  Join us for Frugal Fridays where all tickets, no matter your age, are only $10.  To make your reservation call 887-6239.  Don't wait until the last minute to make them, rumor has it that the last Sunday performance is already sold out to a group of Norwegians from Green Valley.
