Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience

The Big Band Experience creates more than music. They create feelings. Experiences. The kind you remember as, “that unbelievable night out” and they are bringing those feelings and experiences to Lyric Arts. Shaun Johnson, is an Emmy-winning singer/songwriter who is originally from a small town in Iowa before attending Saint John’s University and then settling down in Saint Cloud, Minnesota.

Wanting to bring an innovative big band experience to the audience, Shaun put together a group featuring some of the best instrumentalists and arrangers in the Midwest – guys who've toured with such luminaries as Aretha Franklin and Johnny Mathis, who are Music Educators of the Year and who are integral members of collegiate jazz faculties. His vision was to create a contemporary big band sound with a pop flair, honoring legends like Frank Sinatra, with a nod to Michael Bublé, while giving the music his own twist–performing songs ranging from the “Spiderman Theme” to originals from U.S. songwriters.

Tickets range from $30-$34

In a Gotham-like city, a 20-year drought has caused a terrible water shortage leading to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Winner of three Tony© awards, Urinetown The Musical is a hilarious satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theater itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown The Musical provides a fresh perspective of one of America's greatest art forms.

Tickets range from $18-$32.

On Saturday, March 25, 2017, Alexandra House will be celebrating its 14th Annual Hope Gala at Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens. This will be the first event to kick-off its momentous 40th anniversary year and highlight the last four decades of working to end violence in our community, honor our legacy, and look forward to the years to come. The Gala, presented by Carlson Toyota of Coon Rapids will benefit the nonprofit with proceeds supporting Alexandra House’s comprehensive services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, dating abuse, and abuse in later life.

This year’s event will be held at Leopold's Mississippi Gardens, which opened in September 2015 by former NHL hockey player Jordan Leopold and his wife Jamie. The facility is a beautiful wedding and events center in the northwest suburb of Brooklyn Park. Nestled along a river bluff just south of the Hwy. 610 bridge, the venue showcases extensive views of the Mississippi River.

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception where guests will have a chance to mingle, bid in the silent auction, or try their luck at either the Prize Wheel or PLINKO to win fun prizes including gift cards, merchandise, or bottles of wine. The cocktail reception will be followed by a delicious meal with wine, desserts provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes and Truffles and Tortes, a short presentation by Claudette Jones, a survivor and former client, and a live auction. The live auction will feature a private Mississippi River dinner cruise, Napa Valley vacation package with a variety of private wine tastings, a MILO Firearms Simulator Experience hosted by the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office, and more!

Dream Vacation Raffle

At the event Alexandra House will be raffling off a $5,000 ‘Dream Vacation’ travel voucher redeemable at Elk River Travel in Elk River. Raffle tickets are $10 each and are available to the public. The winner need not be present to win.
