"Bleacher Bums" bleachers

The "Bleacher Bums" set comes to life - The Fire Pit Production is on June 21,22 and June 28,29 at 6:30 pm - the show is outside - Bring a chair. — at Lakes Area Theatre.

(Alexandria, MN) "Bleacher Bums" takes place in the bleachers at Chicago's Wrigley Field.  It's where die hard Cub fans root for their team. The group includes a rabid cheerleader, a blind man who follows the game by transistor radio and does his own play by play, a bathing beauty, a nerd and various other bleacher denizens. As the game proceeds, they bet among themselves on every conceivable event, go out for frosty malts or beers, try to pick up the bathing beauty and, occasionally, watch the game. The Cubs inevitably blow it in the ninth and the villainous Marvin, who always bets against the Cubs figuring he can't lose, cleans up. The bleacher bums remain undaunted they will be back tomorrow to root for the home team.

Bleacher Bums is performed June 21-22, 28-29 at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10 at the door. Fire Pit Productions 2214 Geneva Rd. NE. Alexandria MN.  This show will be performed outside, so bring a lawn chair to sit on.  The show contains adult language.
