The 8 PM evening at the famed outdoor theatre will be hosted by Garrison Keillor and will feature Tim Russell, Sue Scott, Fred Newman and Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. Special guests for the evening will include Kevin Kline, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly and Academy Award winner Meryl Streep.
"America's favorite storyteller, Garrison Keillor," reads production notes, "brings us The News From Lake Wobegon plus special guests for a live performance of the ever-popular radio show. It's an evening of music, storytelling, comedy and down-home fun."
Robert Altman directed "A Prairie Home Companion," which is due in movie theatres this summer. The film, which follows the final broadcast of a popular radio show, features Kline, Madsen, Reilly and Streep as well as Woody Harrelson, Lily Tomlin, Lindsay Lohan, Tommy Lee Jones and Matthew Modine.
