In this oddball comedy, a man dies in a small café, but his cell phone will not stop ringing. Jean, the woman at the next table, answers the phone and quickly ends up stuck in the middle of all his troubles, including becoming connected to his family, and unexpectedly falling in love with his brother, all while confronting her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and how we memorialize the dead.
Tickets range from $29-32

The Coon Rapids Snowflake Days began in 1964 as a Jaycee project. It was conceived of the notion that the City of Coon Rapids needed a civic celebration the the entire community could participate in. All of the neighboring communities had summer celebrations so Coon Rapids thought they would try something in the winter so as not to compete with their neighbors.
