Ensemble members will be putting on a show including fiddle, dance, and even hula hoop during the performance.
About Sprouts: Sprouts is a brand new music education program originally developed in Omaha by Scottsbluff native, Ruth Meints. The goal of the program is to bring musical education to young children. Children start at age 3 or 4 and are given a violin and weekly instruction for as long as they are enrolled in the five year program. The best part: it's free!

Monty_Python_6AUG_V2.jpgNow fans around the world will have the opportunity of joining in on one of the most anticipated live events of the year, a chance to say farewell to the Pythons on this last and special night.  The special night will be presented in cinemas on Wed., Aug. 6th at 7:30pm.
Monty Python rightfully holds a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionising comedy on their way to greatness. There was a huge demand for tickets for the first live performances at the O2 on stage by the stars of Monty Python.  At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again take to the stage and perform some of Monty Python’s greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.
Monty Python first hit our screens with the Flying Circus, which saw 45 episodes broadcast over four BBC series between 1969 and 1974. The Pythons were an instant success and became the face of British comedy.  They went on to achieve overwhelming international acclaim with the huge success of films such as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in 1975, “Life of Brian” in 1979 and their final film, “The Meaning of Life” in 1983.
Advanced tickets go on sale Monday, June 2, at the Midwest Theater
Screening:  Monty Python Live (mostly)
When: Wed., Aug 6, 7:30 pm
Ticket Prices: $13.00 for Advance Sales, Members & Students
