Paradise Center for the Arts theatre setting for "South Pacific"

The Paradise Center for the Arts theatre and setting for the musical, "South Pacific," performed in July.

Earlier this summer, I bopped into The Paradise Center for the Arts in downtown Faribault with my camera. I intended to shoot some photos and then be on my way.

Instead, I got a behind-the-scenes tour of this restored historic theatre and plenty of great photo opportunities.

You can read all about this visit and view some photos in my latest blog for Midwest Mix Magazine, a southern Minnesota arts publication.

Editor Edell Fiedler also gave me a wonderful plug in her online “news” section. I’m humbled by her praise. Check out the entire Midwest Mix Magazine website.

And, if you haven’t been to Faribault for an event at The Paradise Center for the Arts, plan a trip soon. The Merlin Players open Anne of Green Gables tonight, with the production also showing next week.
