Take your Valentine to 'Ole N Lina'

In the traditions of ‘Tony and Tina’ it’s “Ole N Lina’s Wedding!” Ole and Lena’s son, ‘Ole Jr.’ just married Swen and Tina’s daughter, ‘Lina Jr.’ and the audience is now present at their raucous, outrageously funny, Scandinavian wedding reception. All the audience members will partake in an incredible banquet buffet consisting of: tangy orange chicken breasts, premium smoked ham, cheesy hash brown potatoes, baked potatoes, choice of vegetable, salad, rolls and wedding cake.

There will be dancing to favorite dances, like the “Chicken” and “Hokey Pokey.” There will be the traditional “Dollar Dance,” tossing of bouquet and garter and more. There is musical entertainment and even wedding cake. Guests will be part of the celebration, toasting the proud groom.

The Play features a cast of 13 Local, professional and community actors including: Roger Gerdin as Ole Sr., Vicki Thompson as Lena, Paul Neslund as Swen, Molly Fitzgerald as Tina, Flessia Fry as the bride, Lina Jr., Tony Heryla as the groom.

C., Farrell Oleen as Grandpa Swenson, Jamie Mikush as the Maid of Honor, Jamie Steele as the Best Man, Mary Billmark as the Wedding Planner, Jim Rittenour as the Photographer and Martin Gilchrist as Stage Manager.
