Over the Barrel: A Prohibition Musical!

  • Bluenose Gopher Public House 681 Prentice Street Granite Falls (map)

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Prohibition, PlaceBase Productions has joined in partnership with Granite Falls Historical Society, Granite Falls, MN, Bluenose Gopher Public House, The YES House and Other Tiger Productions for a space and time-traveling event! This original production will take place downtown Granite Falls throughout the summer as a musical theater adventure exploring three generations of liberation, libation, inhibition (or lack thereof), history, the future, and of course, Prohibition. Plus root beer, local brew, and some good old drinking (and non-drinking) songs!

Audience will start at Bluenose Gopher Public House and travel to the YES! House and the Andrew John Volstead House,* returning to Bluenose for a beverage of your choice, included with the ticket price!
