Home for the Holidays 

About This Concert:

Hilarious and heartwarming, Home for the Holidays returns with a few new surprises, combining music performed by the Minnesota Orchestra and storytelling with a Minnesotan slant on Christmas and family traditions.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Sarah Hicks, conductor
  • Conceived and directed by Peter Rothstein
  • Written and narrated by Kevin Kling
  • Original music by Robert Elhai and Peter Ostroushko

Fun Facts:

  • The show features singing actors from some of the Twin Cities’ most beloved theaters and venues.
  • After last year’s debut and two sold-out performances, the Home for the Holidays  team returns with the program audiences loved, plus a few new elements that will surprise audience members of all ages.
  • In 1993, Kling won the prestigious Whiting Award for drama. He’s appeared regularly on NPR’s All Things Considered and won the 2012 National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence Award.
  • Our multitalented conductor Sarah Hicks helped create this uniquely Minnesotan holiday show in collaboration with Kevin Kling and director/co-writer Peter Rothstein.
  • A born-and-bred Minnesotan, Kling has lived in Osseo, Brooklyn Park and Maple Grove, Minnesota, and he graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College.
  • Director Peter Rothstein is no stranger to the Twin Cities arts scene. The 2015 Star Tribune “Artist of the Year” is also Founding Artistic Director of Theater Latté Da.
  • Audiences shared their enthusiasm for this new program with us saying, "Kevin Kling is a genius. What a funny and heartwarming look into Minnesota culture and nostalgia," and "I loved every minute! Will be back next year with more family and friends!"
