Northfield Arts Guild Theater, 411 Third Street W, Northfield
Tickets: $17.00 adults, $12.00 seniors/students
Winner of seven Olivier awards, including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a ground-breaking production which explores the mind and experiences of 15-year-old Christopher Boone. As Christopher investigates the death of his neighbor’s dog, the audience gets a window into Christopher’s perception of the world, masterfully illustrated by immersive, theatrical staging and engaging characterizations. As beloved as Mark Haddon’s book from which it was adapted, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Simon Stephens, is a heart-warming story that is as real and unapologetic as it is hopeful. Directed by Jay Gilman.

Fred the Bear and a few special guest performers will present Won’t Back Down, An Evening of Music by Tom Petty. Rice County Habitat for Humanity will receive a full 35% of the evening’s proceeds. Just as Tom himself would have wanted, we’re rockin’ for a great cause.
Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped families in need of shelter by working with them to build houses and advocating for affordable housing. The Rice County Chapter was chartered in 1991 and built their first home in 1993. In just the last three years alone, they have built eight homes in the Northfield/Faribault area. We are thrilled to help support their amazing and vital work.
