Such a treat to welcome Bonnie Schock, executive director of the Sheldon Theatre in Red Wing, to the KYMN studios today to talk about their fantastic line-up of events this holiday season. Celebrate with film, dance, comedy and, of course, great live music. The beautiful Sheldon Theatre is located in downtown Red Wing, a mere 40 minutes by car from Northfield. And did you know it’s the oldest municipally-owned theater in the US? Bonnie and her staff do an amazing job, curating a fun and eclectic mix of programming sure to please every one of all ages. Definitely one of my favorite arts destinations in Minnesota!
