Dayton, Franken, Senjem, more in MinnRoast cast

MinnPost proudly announces the cast of MinnRoast 2012, the fifth anniversary of our annual fundraiser.

This outstanding group will take the stage for one night only — Friday, April 27, at the Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis.

Performers from the worlds of politics and media include Gov. Mark Dayton and Press Secretary Katharine Tinucci, Sen. Al Franken, Senate Majority Leader David Senjem, Mayor R.T. Rybak of Minneapolis, Mayor Chris Coleman of St. Paul, governor candidates Tom Emmer (now of NewsTalk AM 1130) and Tom Horner, Jon McTaggart and Dave Kansas of Minnesota Public Radio, Brian ‘BT’ Turner of Cities 97 and Joe Schmit of KSTP-TV. MinnPost journalists include Don Shelby, Roxane Battle, Cyndy Brucato, Al Sicherman, Joe Kimball and Joel Kramer, plus Board chair Lee Lynch.

And of course the MinnRoast “Singers & Dancers” — good friends of MinnPost who help carry the show with their talent. This year’s on-stage team includes JoJo Liebeler (the show’s director), DeAnne Sherman (the choreographer), Randy Atkins, Lynn Benson, Dustin Doepke, Dawn Gabriele, Debbie Irestone, Warren Kapsner, Barbro Koeleman, Jennifer Martin, Ashleigh Swenson, Debby Thomas and Suzu Thompson.
