COMMUNITY EVENTS

The CDT Concert Series has some of the best tribute concerts in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota and features the finest musicians in the region. Concerts are scheduled for 2-4 weekends every month, so you always have an option to have a night out! 

Welcome to Le Musique Room, located INSIDE the ST.  MICHAEL CINEMA.
Music fans can expect incredible sound, lighting and video accouterments in the 199-seat theater and concert space, complete with Parisian design elements that highlight the entire complex.  Offering a broad menu including original music, singer-songwriters, classic country, jazz, classic rock, new country, tribute acts, themed shows, big band music, and more!  We will also feature both regional and national touring acts.

Resuming 2021 Chanhassen Dinner Theatre – Music Man – A fun and transformative story, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best!  This musical theatre classic features songs like “(Ya Got) Trouble,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” “Till There Was You,” “Gary, Indiana” and more! Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.  The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
