Ole & Lena: May 18 & 20, 2018
Civic Live presents Ole & Lena Win a Cruise!
The lovable, dim-witted Scandinavian couple of Ole & Lena are coming to the stage of the Rochester Civic Theatre Company to perform “Ole and Lena Win a Cruise.” With “a whole lotta uff da,” the comedic talents of the husband and wife team, Mike and Julie Bateson, bring to life a cast of characters they created, all of whom reside in the town of Potsdam, MN. Potsdam, an unincorporated town in far east Olmsted County, barely registers on the map because of its small size.
Lena has mused for years about her friends at the Curler and Chat getting to take vacations while she and Ole stay home. A camping vacation each year at the Muskrat Lodge’s Annual Convention, a mere two miles from home, is his idea of a good vacation.
When Ole wins the grand prize in a raffle at the Muskrat Lodge, Lena is thrilled and starts envisioning that they’ll spend their vacation on a romantic cruise in the Caribbean. Ole will have none of it. And so, the laughter begins.
“Ole and Lena Win a Cruise” is a show the whole family will enjoy and appropriate for all ages.
