Fish Creek, Wis. (July 27, 2022) – On Saturday, July 30, at 8 p.m., Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present Keillor & Company, featuring Garrison Keillor, Prudence Johnson, and Dan Chouinard, on its Main Stage.
Keillor & Company is an evening of stand-up, storytelling, audience song, and poetry starring Garrison Keillor and featuring pianist Dan Chouinard and vocalist Prudence Johnson. There are sung sonnets, limericks, and musical jokes, all tied together with the same thread: the beauty of growing old. There is the News from Lake Wobegon, a town booming with new entrepreneurs, makers of artisanal firewood and gourmet meatloaf, breeders of composting worms, and dogs trained to do childcare. And there is an a cappella audience sing-along, with the audience singing from memory an odd medley of patriotic songs, pop standards, and hymns, ending with the national anthem. Chouinard and Johnson lend their prodigious talents to an evening that is, at its heart, classic Garrison Keillor.
The Los Angeles Times wrote of Keillor, “His shows can, for a couple of hours, transform an audience of even so-called coastal elites into a small-town community with an intimacy only radio and its podcast descendants can achieve.”
Keillor & Company’s performance is made possible with support from supporting sponsors Richard and Barbara Board, Sweetie Pies, and Parkwood Lodge.
