Sunday, October 7th, 2018
2:00 – 4:00 pm / Monument Hill in the Upper Arboretum

Mixed Precipitation Theater Company will perform Dr. Falstaff and the Working Wives of Lake County: A Picnic Operetta, a new adaptation of Otto Nicolai's German opera, The Merry Wives of Windsor, with a bit of Minnesota history and the music of Bruce Springsteen. Created by Producing Artistic Director Scotty Reynolds, Director Kym Longhi, Music Director Gary Ruschman, and the Mixed Precipitation team, this late summer harvest celebration offers local flavors with picnic bites for the audience. It's fun for everyone!

An edible opera adventure for the whole family, A Picnic Operetta marks its 10-year tradition of celebrating the harvest with a unique blend of music, horticulture, food, and storytelling.

This production will take place at Monument Hill in the Upper Arboretum. Limited parking is available at the Recreation Center. If you are driving we suggest you park in other campus parking areas which can be found on the campus map. Follow the paved trail from in front of the Recreation Center to the grove of pine trees at Monument Hill, a few minutes walk.  Bring your blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the show.
