It did not take long for me, in fact it was pretty near immediate, to become beguiled with the charms of Red Wing. The history, the beauty of the Mississippi River, towering bluffs and a variety of architecture throughout the stately town have taken hold of my affections.
One extraordinary place that enlivens my imagination and lends itself to awe is the Sheldon Theater. Boasting in Renaissance Revival, the grand theater stands prominent in historic downtown. Built in 1904 to benefit the people of Red Wing the Sheldon Theater continues to captivate and entertain the public.
Intimate, rich, ornate, gilded – “a jewel box”- are words used by theatergoers to describe the interior of this esteemed and enchanted hall. It is truly a sight to behold!
During the month of December, the Sheldon Theater delights its audiences by adding a little “fa la la la la” to a smashing lineup for the Christmas season. Voices singing in harmony, feet tapping to a mesmerizing tempo, graceful ballet with dreamlike costumes and much more!
