ST. PAUL, Minn. — They sing, they dance, they act! Members of the Minnesota Centennial Showboat and director Vern Sutton joined Steve Staruch for an exploration of the short vignettes that, like a parallel show, are presented along with the main event, "Sweet Revenge."

Vern explains the origin of the term "Olio" and the cast shows off the talent that makes this year's Minnesota Centennial Showboat one of the best ever. It's a step back to the early 20th century to see and hear what our great-grandparents would have enjoyed!
