In going through old newspapers, it appears that 1959 was a year of much entertainment. The Community Concert series opened with “ La Boheme” presented by the New York Opera Company….. a presentation od “Mark Twain Tonight” was performed by Hal Holbrook as a one man show ….. The Glen Miller Dance Band made an appearance at the Municipal Auditorium ….. and the 5th Annual Y’s Mens Indoor Rodeo took place. …… The Minot Community Players presented a play, “Curious Savage”, directed by Mrs Cameron (Barb) Mills….. The Water Follies performed at the Auditorium – the cost for the production was $16,000.00 – the largest entertainment investment since the Auditorium opened.
