Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Winona, MN - (WXOW) - The days of disco music may be gone, but a fond remembrance of things past takes place in "Can't Dance", a one act comedy play.

Adding to the fun is the grand space of Winona's historic Masonic Theater. The play transforms the space into the Apple Garden disco, complete with music, lights and a spinning glitter ball. Audience members sit at tables, their attention drawn to the center of the room as well as other hot spots.

"It happens from the moment you walk into the space," says Dominique Sicard who plays "Marsha". "There are lights and music everywhere, you'll feel like you're at the Apple Garden."

The story revolves around four individuals at a Long Island nightclub, contemplating life and having a good time at the disco.

"Disco is all about trying to 'So you think you can dance' in a good way, " writer and director Lee Gundersheimer said. "It was just a beautiful time for people to work out all of their troubles in a really sort of positive way."

The original work by Gundersheimer doesn't end with just a bow, but a dance party. Theatergoers are invited to stay on after the show for the event that includes a deejay on site.

"Can't Dance" runs through February 2nd. Tickets are $10. For specific showtimes and tickets, you can go to the website
