There is no comparison to experiencing a live performance.  We at G.L. Berg Entertainment understand this more than anyone!  For the past 25 years, we have held an annual "showcase" event in St. Cloud, MN where our customers have had an opportunity to 'preview' a huge variety of professional entertainers in one place.   Each year, the annual showcase has become a tradition for many of our incredible customers, and has allowed them to see more than 100 different entertainers over the years.   We send a huge thank you to anyone that has been able to attend this event!

We understand, however, that "life happens" and that it is not always feasible to physically attend this amazing event.  So, for the first time, we are allowing you to stream the Showcase which includes 12-minute performances by seven (7) amazing entertainers.   The event occurred on April 27, 2017 at the historic Paramount Theater in downtown St. Cloud, MN.   The showcase runs just over 2 hours - but feel free to skip around and enjoy!
