About Hormel Girls
Anoka-Ramsey Community College Theatre Department's winter musical production, "Hormel Girls," tells the story of the Hormel Girls Caravan, the all-girl sales organization formed by J.C. Hormel after WWII to pitch Hormel products and charm the nation with their musical talents. The light-hearted musical follows the adventures of the women across America and through the hearts of a healing country as they evolve from a G.I. Jill Drum and Bugle Corps to the glamorous stars of a nationally syndicated radio show, "Music with the Hormel Girls."

About Playwright and Composer
Laurie Flanigan has a long history with American Folklore Theatre in Door County, Wisc., which premiered her first two musicals, "Loose Lips Sink Ships" and "See Jane Vote." Her musical, "Twenty Days to Find a Wife" (a collaboration with Minneapolis composer Marya Hart) received a staged reading at the History Theatre's Raw Stages Festival in January 2008. Also an actor, she most recently appeared in "Menopause the Musical" at the Lab Theatre in Minneapolis.

For the past 35 years, the play's composer Hiram Titus has been associated with many theaters, including the Guthrie Theatre, notably for their production of "A Christmas Carol," and the Minneapolis Children's Theater Company where he composed the score for Dr. Seuss's "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins," among other productions. He is currently teaching music at the Lundstrum Center for the Arts.

Tickets for "Hormel Girls" are $8 for the general public and are available at the college bookstore during normal business hours or at the Performing Arts Center box office 30 minutes before each performance. For more information, call 763-433-1250.
