Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, and Jon Gries

Concert Series, Ordway Music Theater

The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 15 years ago; and the enduring and endearing characters have stayed in fans’ hearts. Appealing to the inner teenager in each of us, the story and the dialogue make Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time. Napoleon Dynamite makes audiences laugh—and laugh hard—over and over again.

This unique evening includes a Napoleon Dynamite-themed pre-show experience, a full screening of the film, and a lively, freewheeling discussion with fan-favorite cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico), moderated by Twin Cities favorite Miss Shannan Paul.
