The Untold, Extended, Enlarged, NSFW (seriously), Huge, All-Encompassing, Epic Story of the Veranda Variety Hour, Ten Years of Silly Stupid at the Pioneer Place Theater

 In this extended podcast of the Untold Stories of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack visits with members of a surprising institution in the St. Cloud theater scene that has just dropped its final curtain.

The Veranda Variety Hour was a late night, adult comedy variety show that made its home at the Pioneer Place Theater for the past ten years. With a myriad of rotating and returning cast members, many of which were SCSU Theater students at some point, the show hit the stage about every other month as a mixture of part Muppet Show, part Saturday Night Live, and part avant-garde experimental theater.

Yet, as with all good things, it has come to an end.

Due to the vast amount of material produced, remembered, and recorded in the process of creating this story, it felt right to include as much of it as possible . . . so here it is!

Seriously, though, the VVH was rude, crude, and lewd.  This podcast is Not Safe For Work (which is what NSFW means for those not quite on fleek), so proceed with caution!

This program is funded in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy Grant.
