Ole & Lena's 50th Wedding Anniversary and Vow Renewal
Ole & Lena live will be performing "Ole & Lena's 50th Wedding Anniversary and Vow Renewal" at the historic Mineral Point Opera House on Saturday, September 12 at 7:30pm.
The lovable, dim-witted Scandinavian couple of Ole & Lena have come to life in the comedic stylings of the internationally known husband and wife team of Michael and Julie Bateson.
Lena saw a couple renew their vows on Dr. Phil and decides that's what she and Ole are going to do for their 50th wedding anniversary; but the only thing on Ole's mind these days is the Lodge's ice fishing tournament, and how he and his neighbor, Sven, are going to win the "whole deal." Will Lena get Ole to the altar to renew his vows? Will Ole talk Sven into covering for him so they can both fish in the tournament? Find out in this comedy about love, marriage, and growing old together.
Using the small Southeastern Minnesota town of Potsdam as Ole & Lena's home town, the Bateson's bring the entire population of Potsdam, Minnesota; not to mention the crazy extended Gustafson family, to life through well timed phone calls that are made or received by Ole and Lena. "We were going to perform at small theater in Minnesota and passed through the microscopic town of Potsdam. We looked at each other and knew we had to adopt it," says Julie.
Whether it's Ole's life-long friend and neighbor Sven and his wife Margaret, Mike and Julie have developed characters to round out the entire population of Ole & Lena's friends, relatives and acquaintances from their community and church.
