Non-profit theater and arts company Twin Ports Stagehas been working for years to create an arts & event center in Superior.

The company – whose members are some of the area’s best known actors from both sides of the bridge - wants to find a suitable space in Superior and raise funds for renovation. Director Victoria Main came up with the idea of having the mayors perform together in the readers theater piece. 
Here at KUMD, we thought perhaps we'd stumbled on a chance for Drama (big "D") ... but alas, we were disappointed.  It's just drama (small "d") and a fun working relationship.
Love Letters will be performed tomorrow night, June 8 at 7pm.  The performance will be held at the Holden Fine Arts Center's Manion Theater on the UWS campus and will be followed by a Mayor's Reception in the Holden lobby.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
