Southside Desire and The Union Suits

When:
July 25, 2014 @ 10:00 pm
Where:
Ed's (no Name) Bar , 252 East 3rd Street, Winona, MN 55987, USA

Southside Desire are the melding of a garage power trio with a ’60s girl-group; sophisticated harmonies shoo-bop between eccentric guitar riffs and pulsing rhythm. Like The Who backing up the Shirelles, while Union Suits are an outlaw-country band in the mode of Hank Williams, Waylon and Willie and Drive-by Truckers. Melancholy bliss in a gauzy haze of whiskey and fiddle. Eds

GRSF: Hamlet (Closing)

When:
August 3, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
Where:
PAC - Main Stage, 450 Johnson Street, Winona State University, Winona, MN 55987, USA

Hamlet is arguably the greatest play ever written. Unexpected funny, Hamlet grapples with the core questions of our lives while remaining sharp, witty, direct and relevant to a modern audience. Hamlet asks what it is to be human – what it means to live, to love, to see beauty, to suffer loss, to revenge, to mourn, to exist, …to be.

GRSF: The Merry Wives of Windsor (Closing)

When:
August 2, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
Where:
PAC - Main Stage, 450 Johnson Street, Winona State University, Winona, MN 55987, USA

The Merry Wives of Windsor is a bawdy, hysterical take on fidelity, centering around one of the great comic characters of all time, Sir John Falstaff, mentor and friend to the young Prince Hal of Henry IV and Henry V. But even Falstaff, master of wit and of tavern pranks is no match for the title characters in this story of cuckoldry and deception, where the Wives exact their revenge on their “men being men.”

Winona State University , Winona State University, 175 West Mark Street, Winona, MN 55987, USA

San Francisco’s accordion-fueled rock ‘n’ roll band pumps out polkas, rock classics and catchy originals chronicling life in the weird lane. With a sense of humor that just won’t quit, the one-of-a-kind band blazes through a variety of musical genres — from rock and funk to polka — and torches timeless classic rock tunes along the way. You won’t believe your ears.

GRSF: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead (Closing)

When:
August 2, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
Where:
PAC - Main Stage, Winona State University, 175 West Mark Street, Winona, MN 55987, USA

As he did in Shakespeare in Love, Tom Stoppard uses dazzling language in a Shakespeare inspired story that asks, “what if?” What if we are minor characters in our own story? What if we are trapped in a play we can’t alter? The result is a profoundly funny, deeply moving portrait of modern life as seen by two characters who disappear from Hamlet in a single line: “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.”
