Fall Play - Icehouse, by Peter Bloedel

Friday, November 11, 2016 - 7:30pm

Bethany's fall play is Icehouse, written and directed by Peter Bloedel. Performance dates and times are November 11-13, 18-19. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

Icehouse Synopsis: A bunch of ice-fishing buddies concoct a plan to entice their friend, Oskar, from Florida, to come back up north to Minnesota. Their enticement is to build “the grandmother” of all icehouses; a giant “ice chateau,” complete with a kitchen, opulent dining room, bedrooms, running water, a bathroom, a sauna, and, of course, ice fishing holes. The icehouse is obviously a huge undertaking, and has to be kept a secret from all of the guys’ wives. To the absolute joy of his friends, Oskar gets on board with the plan. However, he has another reason for coming back to Minnesota - a reason he hasn’t shared with his buddies. This hilarious comedy takes a playful look at northern “small town” culture that is emblematic of a simpler time around the end of the 20th century.

The box office opens October 31. Reserve tickets online, or at 507-344-7374 during box office hours (weekdays, 1-5 p.m.) Tickets are $10 each.
