Join Garrison and the gang for a live Fourth of July broadcast from St. Paul!

The 40th Anniversary celebration and broadcast was so much fun last year that Garrison decided to return to Macalester College — the location of our very first broadcast on July 6, 1974 — for a special 41st Anniversary live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion on Saturday, July 4th, once again from an outdoor stage on Macalester's Great Lawn. Tickets are on sale now!

The Royal Academy of Radio Actors — actress Sue Scott, Tim Russell (the man of many voices), and sound effects wizard Fred Newman — will be on hand, along with musical director Richard Dworsky and the house band. Garrison will also catch everyone up on all of the latest News from Lake Wobegon during his signature monologue.

Tickets available online at eTix, by phone through the Fitzgerald Theater box office, or in person at Common Good Books
