Radio Gals

A Razzamatazz Musical Comedy

Ives Auditorium – Bloomington

Lunch & Show

October 4, 2018


    Join Laura and Gary Block with special radio gals Harriet Turner and Donna Hilmerson on Thursday October 4th for a delicious lunch and great show at the beautiful Ives Auditorium in Bloomington, a 443 seat auditorium with jewel box theater and comfortable seats.  Harriet & Donna spent many years entertaining radio listeners in central Minnesota and we’re excited about them joining us.  We leave Little Falls at 9:00 a.m. from the northeast corner of the Wal-Mart parking lot. Our comfortable Andy’s Charter Service motor coach will also pick up in Royalton, Rice, St. Cloud or anywhere else on our route.  Lunch is served buffet style in a separate dining room with pork chops and stuffing in a mushroom cream sauce with scalloped potatoes and vegetable du jour, chef’s choice cold salad, dinner rolls, assorted desserts and coffee or hot tea.  Special dietary meals available by request when signing up. Following lunch, it’s time to be seated in the theater and enjoy “Radio Gals”.  Set in the 1920’s when radio ruled the airwaves and small stations thrived, “Radio Gals” is a charming musical about Hazel Hunt from Cedar Ridge, Arkansas, who broadcasts from her front parlor with her “All-girl” orchestra, “The Hazelnuts”, as radio WGAL.  What comes over the local airwaves is an array of hilarious toe-tapping songs.  However, Hazel’s broadcasts  are not always so local due to her habit of impinging on other frequencies, like NBC’s, attracting the attention of a federal radio inspector who’s intent on shutting down WGAL.  It turns out, he has a fine tenor voice, plays a mean accordion and quickly becomes enchanted by the “Hazelnuts”.  From the creators of “Pump Boys and Dinettes”, this is going to be a fun show.  As radio veterans, Donna, Harriet, Laura and Gary have had more than our share of funny broadcast experiences. Combine a fabulous buffet lunch, a gorgeous theater, a super show and you have the perfect setting for a perfect day!  We will be returning to Little Falls around 6:00 p.m.
