Surfin’ Minnesota – Theatre L’Homme Dieu Review

What a fun night at Theatre L’Homme Dieu! Great music, great storytelling, and an all-around entertaining evening.  Baby Boomers will know every song by heart and relate to every moment in the show. If you’re looking for a funny, fun, relaxing night – this show is perfect.  

Summer in Minnesota, the season when hot dish gives way to salads and “exposed flesh” goes back to being skin. As a kid in the 1960s, the last day of school was when gym shoes magically turned into sneakers, school clothes became play clothes and teachers went back to…wherever teachers come from.

Songs like “King of the Road”, “Hot Fun in the Summertime”, “Hello Muddah” and “Dock of the Bay” dominated the AM transistor airwaves and a new baseball team, The Minnesota Twins, moved to town. There was bar-b-que, swimming lessons, family vacations, camping, riding bikes, carnivals.  Then, as now, our state really knew how to do summer. 

Don’t miss Kevin Kling, Dan Chouinard, and Prudence Johnson at Theatre L’Homme Dieu for an entertaining evening of stories and songs celebrating a kid’s eye view of Minnesota in the 1960s.

Surfin’ Minnesota continues at Theatre L’Homme Dieu through July 27th.
