Performances at The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
- The well-known Triple Espresso—a highly caffeinated comedy is returning for the holidays with just eight performances, all benefiting Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities. The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University in St. Paul is hosting the events.
“These are family-friendly shows that will have people rolling with laughter, and they’re loved by so many people around the world,” said Dan Furry, Marketing Manager with Union Gospel Mission. “We are so fortunate to partner with this production and work together to fight homelessness, poverty and addiction.”
The show was written by Twin Citians Bill Arnold, Michael Pearce Donley and Bob Stromberg and has played in the Twin Cities every year for the last 23 years. It has traveled to more than 60 cities across the U.S. and abroad, including London, Los Angeles, Denver and San Diego, bringing laughs to more than 2 million people in all. From hand-shadow puppets, to dancing in Zaire, and dust storms in Nebraska, the show’s Hugh Butternut, Bobby Bean, and Buzz Maxwell relive their own dubious choices in hilarious scenes, while navigating their interpersonal issues and foibles as well.
“I’ve gotten to know the Mission at a deeper level in recent years and am so delighted that we can support their amazing work,” said Stromberg. “The Mission helps provide for people’s basic needs as a doorway to something greater, a road to recovery, a caring community and more independence.”
“For people who haven’t seen Triple Espresso, or want a repeat experience, this is a hit for everyone from age 6 to 106,” said Furry. “And, they can help us fulfill some real needs in our communities and truly transform people’s lives.”
