Event Details

Tune in Thursday, December 2, from 7 to 8 p.m. for A Prairie Homeless Companion - a special radio program presented by zAmya Theater, modeled after the well-known radio show A Prairie Home Companion. With music, bad jokes, and real stories, in zAmya’s version, a theater company from the city presents a show with a quaint depiction of small-town life in Miserable Falls, Minnesota. But the actors find a very different reality than the community they’ve been spoofing. Residents of the town take over the show and tell more realistic stories. More about the program: A Prairie Homeless Companion was originally created for the stage in 2019 by zAmya Theater Project with Placebase Productions, commissioned and supported by the Partnership Art Program of Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership, featuring stories gathered in rural MN communities. zAmya adapted and recorded a radio drama based on the original script by Josef Evans in 2021. This production was recorded at the Shakespearean Youth Theater and was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
