Meanwhile at the farm Lena is in a tizzy, busily preparing to have the whole family from far and wide down for the annual Gustafson family holiday celebration. Then Ole and Lena’s granddaughter, Marion, is rushed to the hospital way up in St. Cloud preparing to bless them with their first great-grandchild. Lena drops everything and rushes off to help, leaving Ole with the planning and preparation for both the lodge and farm until she gets back. On her journey home, Lena gets stranded by a snowstorm. Will Lena make it home in time to save Ole from dual holiday disasters or will Ole stumble around in a holidaze hoping for the best? See for yourself in this wonderfully funny family holiday story.

Imminent Brewing, Northfield Kitty’s uncle is Bunny Wailer of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame, so music is literally in her blood. She grew up listening to a healthy blend of reggae, rap and R&B. At a young age Jack discovered his vaudevillian great-grandfather’s phonograph record collection and spent his childhood listening to cats like Bing Crosby, Al Jolson and Rudy Vallee. As fate would have it, oddball ukulele legend Tiny Tim became Jack’s babysitter. That rich musical stew forms the blend of Jack and Kitty’s Emmy Award-winning artistic approach. It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes. Laid-back music steeped in tradition with one foot firmly in the future, they call their style “organic vaudeville folk.” Theater: Triple Espresso: A Highly Caffeinated Comedy • 7:30pm
