Estenson to perform at Chanhassen Dinner Theatre

By Robert Williams


In a February feature interview with the Frazee-Vergas Forum, Amber Estenson foretold of performing a one-woman show as her alter ego That Midwestern Mom in the near future.

“What I would love to do is to commission 10 Midwestern Mom songs and combine all of that into a one-woman show,” she said. “That’s definitely in the future; it’s more plausible now than it was five years ago.”

Two months later, that show is a reality and will be performed for one night only on Sunday, April 23, at 2 p.m., at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.

That Midwestern Mom Cabaret will be played to a full house given the popularity of That Midwestern Mom Cabaret on TikTok alone, especially in the Twin Cities.

“Your followers will come see you,” Estenson said. “I saw that at the Minnesota Twins game and the Minneapolis Pride parade.”

Amber has a big following in-state. Thirty percent of her 860,000 TikTok followers are in the Twin Cities metro area.

Frequent appearances on Fox 9’s “The Jason Show” have also helped build her metro following.

A meet and greet will follow the show.
