Friday night Chris and I went to see a show on the Minnesota Centennial Showboat. The U of M Theatre Dept. puts on a show every summer on a boat on the Mississippi in St. Paul. Chris has been wanting to go to this every summer since we’ve been dating- it turned out to be a nice date! We invited our friends Ann and Andrew, not sure if they’d like it, but they did. The play was The Count of Monte Cristo and during the scene changes they had Olios, where the cast would do a mini skit in the style of the the Showboats that used to roll along the Mississippi. I liked the Olios a lot, they were so cheesy and cute. A nice comedic break from the play.
Andrew convinced me to get my photo taken with some of the actors from the play. I really did not want to, but I’m glad I did. Here’s me with the villains of the play. I do not know the man to the far right, he just jumped out of the woods into the picture. Crazy mountain man!
