'Song of the North Star'

Celebrate Minnesota's sesquicentennial with Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua as the group brings "Old Minnesota: Song of the North Star" to Red Wing.

Performances will be 7 p.m. Sept. 27 and 2 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Sheldon Theatre. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students.

"Old Minnesota: Song of the North Star" is a personal, musical, historical hike through the old ways of the Gopher State. What is gone now, or mostly so, from our sight and sound will be "songtold," Sheldon officials said.

This show will take people back in time down the river to see and hear what Minnesota was all about in its early history -- the native people, the immigrants, the farms, the forests, the waters, the iron ore. From Paul Bunyan loggers in the north to black earth farmers in the south, and from the founding of the Twin Cities to the tragic story of the Sioux Uprising, the history of our Minnesota will come alive again.
