We are proud to share the bold, eclectic lineup of powerhouse performers from Minnesota and around the globe that make up the 2019/20 season. Whether you yearn to revisit familiar favorites, seek out new performance adventures, or introduce a next generation to the wonders of the stage, we’ve built the season with an eye toward excellence and diversity. We hope to offer experiences to satisfy every taste and mood.

The walls of the Sheldon have seen so very much over its 115 year history. What keeps us going strong is how the offerings on stage evolve and adapt, reflecting and leading with the times. This season we are proud to feature tradition and innovation side by side.

Aaron Neville

Living legends like Aaron Neville and Max Weinberg will grace our stage and leave their mark here in Red Wing. And, bands like the BoDeans as well as singer-songwriter Dan Wilson, whose songs are destined to become the next generation’s ‘oldies’, will join us here and now so you can say you saw them when.

So too, we welcome those addressing issues of today and shaping the future of performance. Artists like rising musical star Gina Chavez, who is blending cultures and styles in a way that epitomizes the promise of an America that finds strength in its diversity; the women of L.A. Theatre Works’ SEVEN who are bringing true stories of obstacles overcome in the lives of real women around the globe; and the playful, unexpectedly poignant, social commentary found in Monica Bill Barnes’ delightful Happy Hour.


The music, words, visions and talents of these remarkable artists and dozens more will entertain, educate and enlighten, as they are forever woven into the ongoing story of this grand home for performance. The momentum continues.
