Subject: Would you like a laugh?
If you live in western Wisconsin or know someone who does, I recommend that you attend one of the performances of He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother May 15 at Wausau East High School auditorium in Wausau, May 16 at Heyde Center for the Arts in Chippewa Falls, and May 17 at the Mabel Tainter Theater in Menomonie.
The show features Larry Heagle, comedian, and his brother Father John Heagle, priest. Having a priest and a comedian in a family is a rarity; having them perform together on stage is unbelievable. When Larry Heagle and his brother, Father John Heagle, take the stage, the unbelievable will happen. For the second time in their lives, Larry and Father John will entertain audiences with stories about growing up on a farm, attending the seminary together, (yes, the comedian did attempt to become a priest), and being brothers. They will weave a few songs into their show, including one about their father, Daddy Jack.
The first time they appeared together, the house was packed, and the audience roared. Whether those in attendance came to see Larry on stage with a priest or whether they came to see how a priest handled Larry, they thoroughly enjoyed the show. Ever since, fans ask, “When will Larry and Father John perform together again?” In this second-in-a-lifetime performance, Larry and Father John will share their love of a good laugh and leave fans wondering about their next appearance.

I hope to see you there, laughing!
I had a good feeling about selling out the Tainter for both shows - and it came to be this afternoon! If you still want to see the Heagle Brothers, you had best contact the Heyde in Chippewa or go to my web site and click on the Wausau show for Friday night. The Wausau East High School auditorium holds a thousand and it's a safe bet that you can get a seat there. If you are skittish about buying tickets online, tickets will be available at the door in Wausau on the evening of the performance.
Also - Look for an article on the show in the Eau Claire Leader Telegram this coming week.
AND A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PURCHASED TICKETS AS WELL AS TO MY MARKETEER, ELIZABETH FISCHER, WHO HAS DONE ONE HELL OF A JOB GETTING THE WORD OUT. (Liz wrote the press release above)
This week I have received very sobering news from my long time friend, Suzi Kittson, of Wausau, Wisconsin, concerning her overall health. I am not going to go into this in depth here on my blog except to say that she is a kind, loving person who worked many years as a teacher, then quit teaching to raise a son,. We have stayed in touch by e mail over the years and she has chronicled her slow deterioration in health with me through that -- all I ask is that if you are a person who takes time to pray, please remember Suzi in your prayers as she can use all the spiritual help we can give.
Suzie: God bless and keep you. I shall hold you in my heart each and every day.
