Starting on holiday plans? Don’t forget to include Indian Valley Theatre’s production of “A Mostly Minnesota Christmas” written by Brian Mitchell and directed by Brad Shortridge.

Have you ever wondered why the holidays often seem like a soap opera? Well, so does 12 year-old Diane, who finds out that her mother, Abby, used to be married to her uncle, Ed, and that her mother spent time in jail for shooting Ed when she found out Ed was cheating on her. Oh, and Ed and his mistress (now wife) and kids are visiting from Miami for Christmas. Sound like a soap opera? That’s because it is! It’s also a whole lot of fun with a good message for the holiday season.

A Mostly Minnesota Christmas” will be performed at the Historic Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich on Friday, Dec. 1 @ 7:30pm, Saturday, Dec. 2 @ 7:30pm and Sunday, Dec. 3 @ 2:00pm. Tickets are $12.00 in advance or $15.00 at the door and can be purchased online @ or at the Box Office @ the Opera House up until 30 minutes before Showtime if seats are available.
