Napoleon Dynamite Live: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez and Jon Gries
Saturday, September 14, 2019 8:00 PM
H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center
Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 8:00 PMTickets: $80 VIP (includes ticket and meet & greet), $45 & $35The beloved indie classic "Napoleon Dynamite" was made almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes “Napoleon Dynamite” one of the most quoted movies of our time. Napoleon Dynamite makes us laugh - and laugh hard - over and over again. This unique evening includes a full screening of "Napoleon Dynamite" followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members; Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).
