Every three years, Xcel Energy, Minnesota’s largest electricity utility, prepares a plan to decide where we’ll get our electricity from for the next 15 years. While there’s nothing funny about 65% of our power plants nearing retirement age, this comedy night explains why there’s plenty to laugh about––and a lot at stake––in this purportedly public process. If you want to find out more and make sure your voice and priorities are heard in this process, this is a perfect opportunity to plug in a fun and accessible way.
Improvisation artists and expert interviewer from THEATER OF PUBLIC POLICY will interview the panelists and transform what they say about the issues into improv comedy! Panelists: ANNIE LEVENSON-FALK (Citizen’s Utility Board), ELLEN ANDERSON (University of Minnesota’s Energy Transition Lab), JEREMY SCHROEDER (Minneapolis City Councilmember for Ward 11).
Childcare and light food provided!
Tickets are on a sliding scale $5-$50. To cover staff time and to hire our performers, it works out to $20 a ticket. If this amount is a barrier, give what feels feel comfortable. For those with greater means, we welcome you to give more than suggested amount.
