Don’t miss “John Dingley and the Biggest Pack of Lies You Ever Heard” on Friday April 13, 1-2 p.m., at Decorah Public Library. The program, which is free and open to the public, concludes a week-long celebration of National Library Week.
Raised on a hill farm in Wales, Dingley performed with the Young Farmers Club, trained with the Royal Shakespeare Company’s satellite program in Wales, and competed in live theater. More locally, he has performed at Theater in the Round, Na Fiana Irish Theater Players of Minnesota, Phipps in Hudson, and in Milwaukee, Chicago and Winnipeg. He is a founding member of Celtic Players of Minnesota and often sings the national anthem at Canterbury Park. He was the featured storyteller at ArtHaus’ TalkStory Decorah in March.
“John Dingley and the Biggest Pack of Lies You Ever Heard,” a collection of embellished experiences, humorous insights and Welsh songs, is adapted from a 2011 Minnesota Fringe Festival appearance. Dingley is also an animal scientist and entomologist, a stone mason and a master glass cutter and engraver.
