Ride Mill City Museum’s Flour Tower elevator from floor to floor for each scene of this comic and heartwarming theatrical performance guided by the Ghost of Mill City Past. Based on true stories of the 1920 Washburn Crosby holiday party culled from the pages of the employee newspaper, The Eventually News!, it ranges from romance and danger to the origin of the company’s marketing slogan, “Eventually-Why Not Now?” Witness the rocky romance of Celia and Otto; thrill to the ingenious inventions of marketing mastermind, Benjamin S. Bull; experience the awesome sweeping power of Bill Smith; learn the secret origin of the Washburn Crosby marketing slogan, "Eventually-Why Not Now?" After the play enjoy refreshments and holiday cheer in the museum’s Baking Lab, followed by time to explore the museum’s exhibit gallery.

Written by critically acclaimed playwright Joseph Scrimshaw ("King of Comedy"-MN Monthly), directed by Laura Salveson, and starring a cast of professional Twin Cities' actors.
