I’m sure you remember folks like Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds? Well do you remember the Avalon Movie Theater? The Falls Café? How about Ladner’s Hardware?

In the 40s and 50s downtown Prentice Street in Granite Falls, MN was a bustling boulevard of amicable amusements, and Saturday night was the busiest night of all. On Saturday nights families converged on downtown for shopping and a bit of nightlife, for winding down and catching up. In this unique theatre performance, downtown Granite Falls will be transformed into another version of itself from the 40s and 50s.

All of Prentice Street between 6th and 8th Avenues will become the stage, and two young characters will guide you through a colorful atmosphere of poodle skirts and pool halls, practical jokes and local folks, when local actors and artists bring a bygone era back to the present day.

Rehearsals are in full swing, and, as you can see, our actors are pulling out all the stops to make this a great show.
