A History of the Mississippi

  • Upper S. Anthony Falls Visitor Center 1 Portland Ave Minneapolis, MN USa (map)

Come learn about the history of the Mississippi river with John Anfinson, Superintendent at Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. There are few people alive that know this stretch of the river better than John. Time machines don’t exist, but John is the next best thing. The last time he was on our show, an audience member interrupted the show by bringing a 60lb frozen carp on stage. Maybe this time they’ll bring two!

Doors open at 6:30 pm; program beings at 7pm.

Free tickets available here!

Cast: Joshua Will, Heather Meyer, Fred Cheng, Keren Gudeman, Brandon Boat, Vanessa Tu

This series is hosted by Mississippi Park Connection, Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, Mill City Museum, and the National Park Service at St. Anthony Falls Visitor Center. This series is made possible in part by the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board with sponsorship in part by Pryes Brewing.

What is the show?

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.

  • That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.

  • The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.

  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.
