The Lawrence Welk shows returns in March

SAC’s Enrichment Center

Remember all the fun we had at the last Lawrence Welk Show? Well, it was so “wunnerful,” that we have decided to do an ACT III: The Lawrence Welk Show in March.

That’s right–SAC’s Enrichment Center will be putting on another show in the City Center Mall on March 17 and March 18 with a St. Patrick’s Day flair.
A dinner theater will take place on Friday, March 17 with dinner at 6 p.m. and show time at 6:45 p.m. Doors will open at 5:15 p.m. On the next day, March 18, a matinee theater will begin with lunch at noon and show time at 12:45 p.m. Doors will open at 11:15 a.m. The cost for each is $20 per person. There is limited seating for 80 people and advance tickets only.

The show will be hosted by Cambridge’s one and only Bruce Danielson as Lawrence Welk. The Champagne Lady will be once again portrayed by Dolly Fairchild, who will be serenaded by Mr. Welk. Entertainment is still being finalized, but promises to be a “wunnerful, wunnerful” time, including a superb rendition of “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.”

Our dinner will begin with a scrumptious reuben dip and rye bread appetizer. Dinner will follow, consisting of chicken kiev on a bed of rice pilaf, vegetable medley, homemade bread, and dessert. Beverages will include green punch and coffee.

We hope you can join us for this fun event. To reserve your tickets, call 763-689-6555. Proceeds from this event will go toward the purchase and installment of storage cabinets in SAC’s Activity Room.
