Sunday, March 15 – HELP (the Beatles) (rated G) 1965


Richard Lester directs the Beatles. This became a forerunner to music videos and “The Monkees” TV show. HELP satirizes James Bond films and was inspired by “The Goon Show” in the UK, and The Marx Brothers. Ringo finds himself the human sacrifice target of a cult and the band must try to protect him from it. This film is whacky, colorful, fast and FUN!

Bob Fosse directs. In Berlin in 1931, American cabaret singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) meets British academic Brian Roberts (Michael York), who is finishing his university studies.

Winner of 8 Academy Awards.

The Langers Ball

"The Langer's Ball" Celtic Concert takes place on Saturday, March 28, at 7:30pm. Kris Reints & Gaylord Stauffer will provide some pre-show music.  This is A Free Will Offering Only! Please show up for the fun and help the theatre.

As a duo, Michael & Hannah have been playing since 2007 and have played over 500 shows at various locations; including the Irish Fair of MN, the Iowa Irish Fest, Shamrock Fest in Kansas City MO and have opened for Toronto based Celtic rock band Enter The Haggis.

Their first release As I Roved Out (2008) was awarded a Special Mention for “Best Celtic Rock & Punk CD’s of ’08 from and they were hailed as “…A Band To Watch.” This was followed by Ships Are Sailing (2009) which took the band to a new level in the studio, featuring full band arrangements and some original songs; Ships Are Sailing got a #11 spot that year from and earned a Special Mention from Shite’n'Onions as a best of for 2009

The warm reception for the live release, along with Michael & Hannah’s need to rock inspired them to pick up the mantle of Irish punk rock and in late 2011, they met the right musicians for the job. Bringing in Derek Jaimes, a former drummer of fellow Celtic rockers, The Wild Colonial Bhoys, Drew Miller, Bassist & leader of the legendary Rock’n'Reel band Boiled in Lead, and Rockabilly guitarist Danny McDermott who has played with countless bands. Together these 5 re-worked the material the duo had been playing for years, bringing new energy and talent to the mix, as well as revisiting the songwriting and bringing new originals to the stage.

Music from The Langer’s Ball is regularly featured on podcasts from around the world such as Paddy Rock Radio, Shite ‘n’ Onions, Celtic Roots Radio, 67 Music, Marc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, and many more.
