Posted by Judy Korn on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010

Garrison Keillor will host "A Prairie Home Companion" at the University of Minnesota, Morris on Saturday, February 19, 2011. The radio show will broadcast live from 4:45 until 7 p.m. Central Time. Tickets are available for the Morris show through the University of Minnesota Northrop ticketing system.

"A Prairie Home Companion" first visited Morris in 2006. With a filled-to-capacity Physical Education Center, the show included Keillor’s signature monologue—The News from Lake Wobegon, performances by the UMM Concert Choir, comedy sketches, and music. The University of Minnesota, Morris is pleased to welcome Keillor and his talented cast and crew back to campus.

Heard by more than four million listeners each week, "A Prairie Home Companion" is broadcast on 590 public radio stations and abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks in Europe and the Far East. If you are unable to attend the campus performance, listen to a live broadcast on a public radio station or to a live audio web stream. An encore is rebroadcast on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Central Time.
