Celebrating John Latsch @ Winona County History Center
Jul 21 – Jul 26 all-day

A vest-pocket-sized wayside on the Mississippi River in southeastern Minnesota was the gift of a wealthy grocer who enjoyed nothing so much as a solitary paddle on the river’s backwaters. That’s how the
30-year philanthropy of John A. Latsch began.

GRSF: Apprentice/Intern Project: Troilus and Cressida @ PAC - Main Stage
Jul 23 @ 7:00 pm

Love meets consequences: comical, satirical, heroic, tragic, Troilus & Cressida resists easy classification, a minefield of brutal ironies, betrayed loyalties and shattered ideals. Compelling and exasperating, humorous and heartbreaking, it stands apart as Shakespeare’s ultimate dissection of human nature at war with itself.GRSF

GRSF: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead @ PAC - Main Stage
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm

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.”R & G-image-1024x824

GRSF: Hamlet @ PAC - Main Stage
Jul 25 @ 2:00 pm

On the way to writing a classic revenge thriller laced with political intrigue, William Shakespeare drafted one of the greatest plays ever written. Thanks to Hamlet’s razor sharp wit, the play is not only unexpectedly funny, but profoundly direct in confronting the essential questions at the core of what it is to be human. In Hamlet’s struggle to make order out of the chaos around him, we see our own lives mirrored.Hamlet-image-1024x844

GRSF: Free Concert on the Green – Pamela McNeill @ Winona State University
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm

Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter Pamela McNeill is always writing, for she is, at heart, a songwriter. With her fourth album written and almost completely recorded, she had plans. Instead, fate intervened, her course shifted, new songs were born — and we are the better for it. The resulting “Heartaches and Miracles” recognizes the sorrows and celebrates the fleeting joys in this life.Free-Concerts-slider-image1-300x206

GRSF: Merry Wives of Windsor @ PAC - Main Stage
Jul 25 @ 7:30 pm

Sir John Falstaff returns to the GRSF stage in Shakespeare’s hilarious story of cuckoldry and bungled seduction. See what happens when Falstaff tries to woo not one, but two of Windsor’s merriest wives.Merry-Wives-image-1024x808

Southside Desire and The Union Suits @ Ed's (no Name) Bar
Jul 25 @ 10:00 pm

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
