  1. Accidental Hero - Theater

    Accidental Hero - Theater

    720 NW Conifer Dr
    Grand Rapids, MN 55744
    Call: (218) 327-5780

    The Accidental Hero is a true World War II story of jaw-dropping coincidences, plot twists, and triumph. Colonel Mat Konop thinks he’s just another soldier fighting Nazi Germany. Then in the last week of the war his story turns epic when he accidentally liberates the same Czech towns where his grandparents once lived. Konop grew up speaking Czech on a farm in Wisconsin, and the Czechs were shocked to be liberated by, in their words, “one of our own.” His surname was common to the region, and some of those who carried him on their shoulders as their “liberator” were blood relatives. Yet they also liberated him, freeing him from his mixed feelings about his humble farming background. It’s the American immigration story folded back on itself, set in the triumphant end of World War II.
    Konop’s grandson wrote and performs the show. Konop rarely talked about the war when he was alive. Then twenty years after his death his long-lost autobiography was discovered, along with home movies he took during the war. The result is a first-person, multi-media one-man show that has wowed audience across the US and Europe. An annual Czech tour has earned awards, accolades, and a new generation of fans for a magical true story about freedom, family and the ultimate question – who am I, anyway?

    720 NW Conifer Dr
    Grand Rapids, MN 55744
    Call: (218) 327-5780

    Fab 6 is a joyfully sprawling musical tribute to the Beatles in their studio years (Sergeant Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Abby Road) with a smattering of hit singles). But perhaps even more, it is a nod to George Martin (producer) and the lush arrangements that became so much a part of the Beatles studio sound.

    Fab 6 believes that sound can best be brought to the audience's ears through the use of the instruments that were originally used in the studio. Once you've heard the soaring magic of the piccolo trumpet solo of Penny Lane, the uplifting string quartet accompaniment of Yesterday and Eleanor Rigby, the clarion-call brass introduction of Magical Mystery Tour, you'll never want to experience it any other way!

    720 NW Conifer Dr
    Grand Rapids, MN 55744
    Call: (218) 327-5780

    This harmony-obsessed group of six 30-somethings from Minnesota and Wisconsin blends voices that were trained together starting in college in Duluth, MN, under the guidance of Tina Thielen-Gaffey. Most of them have been singing since high school, including Joe Marty (son of Reif President David Marty) whose vocal career started right at Grand Rapids High School. Since college, they have performed a range of jazz and pop songs in various groups - acapella, theater, acoustic, and wedding performances, including a recent Reif appearance by The Sound Exchange. Using their voices together to produce music remains their favorite. This particular group is a reincarnation of the original Fermata Nowhere (with a couple new faces), which started as a jazz group in Duluth, disbanding in 2008 as life moved forward and members moved away; but the rumors that Minnesota calls its people home have proven true (whether by its natural beauty or siren songs), because they're back! They've pulled out the old jazz standards and Doo-wop favorites, as well as a few new crowd-pleasers and surprises for this special occasion – the retirement of Reif President David Marty.
