In 1957 The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco’s North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation.
Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason… great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. And fifty-six years after Tom Dooley shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.

Guy Noir: The Ballet is the brainchild of James Sewell, and brought to life with the help of Minnesota radio star Garrison Keillor. Sewell recalls listening to the “Guy Noir, Private Eye” segment of Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion and always seeing the action as a ballet in his mind’s eye. Thanks to a generous collaboration with Keillor, Guy Noir: The Ballet has become one of JSB’s most entertaining works. Guy Noir premiered on September 29, 2005 at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, and received praise from local sources. It also had appeal to reach a national audience, including a week of performances in New York City. The piece holds a unique place in the JSB repertory as a neo-story ballet, and has been applauded as a spectacle of characters, costumes, and music (featuring songs by A Prairie Home Companion’s Rich Dworsky and The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band). The familiarity of the Guy Noir character, coupled with the Dworsky’s music and Keillor’s classic narration, is certain to make this ballet resonate for Greater Minnesota audiences. This programming is appropriate for all ages.

Saint Prep Theatre joins forces with the Saint John’s Boys’ Choir to create a spectacular production of the Broadway musical hit OLIVER! ‘Food, Glorious Food’, ‘Where is Love’ and ‘I’d Do Anything’ are just some of the wonderful songs from Lionel Bart’s lively, Tony Award winning musical based on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
“Please sir, I want some more?” Oliver’s innocent request lands him in trouble with the workhouse Matron and the Beadle and sets him on his famous adventure. He is sold to a local undertaker, but runs away and is picked up by the Artful Dodger who invites Oliver to ‘Consider Yourself’ one of us! Fagin’s gang sets out to ‘Pick a Pocket or two’ and take Oliver along, but he is arrested and taken before the magistrates. When he finds Oliver was an innocent bystander, Mr. Brownlow, the victim of the gang, takes Oliver in. One of Fagin’s thieves, Bill Sykes is afraid Oliver will give away their set-up and sends his girlfriend, Nancy to get Oliver back. Eventually Oliver is restored to Mr. Brownlow, who by a million to one chance happens to be his Grandfather.

His recent project is based off a book that Leon authored, entitled Mother Pearls Love Letters – with plans to be staged as a full musical!
