Garrison Keillor to return to the Adams Center

The last time Garrison Keillor came to town, the whole world heard about it. In October, the host of NPR’s popular radio variety show, “A Prairie Home Companion,” will return to Missoula for a spoken-word performance at the Adams Center; and this time, what happens in the Adams Center stays in the Adams Center.

Keillor, who brought his entire cast of musicians, actors, foleys, and producers to Missoula in late 2006 for a live broadcast of “A Prairie Home Companion,” will perform a one-man show at the Adams Center on Wednesday, October 13. Tickets to the performance go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m. via Griztix outlets including Griztix.com, the Adams Center Box Office, and by phone at 1-888-MONTANA., at a price of $50, $45, and $40 plus fees, with all seats reserved.
