There are still balcony seats available at every performance. We also have space available at the VIP dinner, which will be hosted at the Hormel Historic Home on Dec. 13 prior to the performance. Tickets for dinner and the show are $65, and the proceeds go to support both the Austin Area Commission for the Arts and the Hormel Historic Home.

Also, join us at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31 for “A Rockin’ New Year’s Eve Party” featuring Denny Charnecki and numerous other local performers.
