Cookies and bars and tequila strawberry cheesecake, oh my!

oatmeal chip cookiesRalph Waldo Emerson said that nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. So, the only logical conclusion is that our upcoming bake sale is going to be fantastic because we’re all so excited about it! We just wanted to give you a quick update about the goodies you’ll find when you come to see The Red Velvet Cake War – opening night is less than two weeks away. Of course, you can’t have a bake sale without cookies or cupcakes, and we wouldn't be able to call ourselves a Minnesota theater if we weren't going to have bars. You can also expect to find cake and pie, and Education Director Cassandra is planning a tequila strawberry cheesecake which she says is crazy-popular at parties.pumpkin bread

Bailey, our marketing associate, will bring in pumpkin bread made from her grandmother’s recipe. She says, “The recipe has been passed all around the family, and we all keep making it for each other as a holiday gift. It’s really become a joke at this point, but it’s so delicious that nobody is complaining!”crazy brownies

Our Technical Director Karen has promised to bring Crazy Brownies, which she described as “chocolate chip cookie dough as a base, layered with Oreo cookies and topped with brownie mix.” She says the recipe wasn't learned from her family, but we’re pretty sure it sounds like an instant family favorite. All in all, you can consider your diet ruined, folks.

There is still time to sign up if you'd like to lend your baking talents to the cause. Contact Sharon at 763-233-0802 or for more information.

The bake sale will begin opening night of The Red Velvet Cake War, and will be open during intermission and after the show until we run out of goods. If you don’t have opening weekend tickets, get them now and you’ll be entered to win a cake from local café Truffles and Tortes!

It's the Red Velvet Bake Sale!


Now that it's finally May and spring has sprung (sort of...), we're excited to announce that we'll be holding a bake sale in conjunction with our upcoming show, The Red Velvet Cake War, opening May 30th. 

You'll surely have red velvet cake on the mind after watching the hilarious Verdeen family bake-off, and we have just the solution. Visit concessions during intermission and after the show–we'll have red velvet cupcakes from Truffles and Tortes, as well as plenty of other scrumptious selections to satisfy any craving (and plenty for you to take home too!). 

Contact Sharon Broscha at 763-233-0802 if you'd like to lend your baking talents to the cause. 100% of proceeds from the bake sale will come directly to Lyric Arts.

In addition to selling scrumptious baked goods, we'll also be raffling off a delicious cake each night of opening weekend from our friends at Truffles and Tortes Dessert Cafe. Come to an opening weekend show and you'll automatically be entered to win! 

Get your tickets now to enjoy an evening of southern-fried comedy and dysfunctional family hilarity with us at Lyric Arts.
