Things to Do Over the Holiday Break

While the semester may be ending, those staying in Fargo-Moorhead over the holiday season and break will still have plenty to do in theatre, music, art and more.

Theatre:

I Will Not Go Gently’

Theatre B’s 15th season continues with Jennifer Childs’s hilarious one-woman show, “I Will Not Go Gently.”

The show follows rock star Sierra Mist and her spectacular comeback. Sierra herself is ready to return to the stage, taking over her mantle of Rock Queen — but are her fans?

“I Will Not Go Gently” will leave audiences rolling with laughter and is also a deeper look into what kind of legacy we leave.

WHERE: Theatre B
WHEN: Dec. 14 – 30, times vary

The 1940’s Radio Hour’

Heavy with nostalgia and full of big band music, the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre’s holiday show, “The 1940’s Radio Hour,” is perfect for the holiday season.

The show takes place in 1942, during World War II, at the WOV radio station in New York. Featuring singing, dancing, quirky little bits, old-timey “applause” and “on-air” signs and live, on-stage music from the F-M Kicks Jazz Band, “The 1940’s Radio Hour” will be a wholly entertaining holiday production.
