The Medicine Show at Northtown Library

Date: Apr 6th, 2013

Live at the Library presents The Medicine Show at Northtown Library, Saturday, April 6th at 2:00 pm.  This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited. 

In an era before infomercials, a travelling Medicine Show came to small towns and used entertainment to sell the latest homemade remedy that promised to cure all.  This Medicine Show won’t be selling any homemade tonics, but they will offer fun for all.  With a performance that includes a rapid fire combination of music, dance, magic, and comedy, spend an afternoon back in the golden age of the American Medicine Show.

“Take a trip back to the time before movies and television,” said Library Board Vice President Melanie Keister.  “Learn about the historical Medicine Show while enjoying music and skits from the vaudeville era.”

The Medicine Show is presented in partnership with MELSA, and the program is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Northtown Library is located at 711 County Road 10 in Blaine.  For more information call 763-717-3267.
