NOW TO MAY 5 — Yellow Tree Theatre, 320 Fifth Ave. S.E. in Osseo, will host the world premiere of a rockin’ new musical, “Stay Tuned,” with an original score by acclaimed local singer/songwriter, Blake Thomas. “Stay Tuned” follows Rusty, Scotty & Emma, the heart and soul of The Emerald Coffee Radio Hour.
