Noel LaBine will join other storytellers on September 12th as part of the Cheap Theater’s “Imitation” evening. Following the theme, participants will be telling tales resembling imitation. In other words, they will be spinning a yarn with a spin on imitation. Other performers include Nanci Olsen, Wonder Dave, Erica Christ, Richard Rousseau and Tom Cassidy.
Noel promises to tell a tale of a man nicknamed “Buffalo Bill,” who may have looked like the original character of Wild West fame, but who had an entirely different story.
Noel Labine is Executive Director of the Wright County Economic Development Partnership and has been an active member of NAIOP Minnesota since 2004.
