We’ve been honored to have Gov. Mark Dayton and then-press secretary Katharine Tinucci trading barbs for the last three years on the MinnRoast stage. When they weren’t teasing each other, they were usually teasing MinnPost journalist Doug Grow. This year, we’ve received no hints of what he’s planning to do on stage at the Historic State Theatre on April 25.

But whatever he does, he will not be alone. Joining in the skits, monologues and dancing this year will be comedienne Lizz Winstead, Sen. Al Franken, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler, KARE 11’s Rena Sarigianopoulos, Jim Graves, Kim Crockett, Dane Smith, Tesfa Wondemagegnehu & VocalEssence, K-TWIN’s Brian “B.T.” Turner, former state Sen. Amy Koch, Cyndy Brucato, Joe Kimball, Lee Lynch, Ashleigh Swenson, Al Sicherman and more.

The evening begins at 5:30 with a pre-show reception at Rock Bottom Brewery (right across the lobby from the Historic State Theatre). Enjoy MinnRoast Martinis, upscale hearty hors d’oeuvres with a twist, and reserved booth and table seating for sponsor groups. The variety show begins at 7:30.

Below you will find a breakdown of individual ticket and sponsorship categories. We look forward to seeing you on April 25.
