It’s a typical morning in a small American town — until a rhinoceros charges down the street. No one is really alarmed, but Berenger soon discovers everyone around him is turning into a rhinoceros – his friends, his co-workers, the townspeople. He’s desperate to save them but no one will listen, until he’s left alone to question what it is to remain human in the face of the trampling herd. Provocative, funny, and frightening, Ionesco’s most renowned work has become a classic parable of social conformity – and human nature.

  • Comedy

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.

Dotty and her three adult children are home for the holidays in West Philly, but this year there is more than presents and yuletide on their mind. While Dotty fights to maintain a grasp on her memory, brother and sisters collide in a riotous mid-life family brawl where losing your mind and losing your sanity are two different things.

Hedwig and her punk rock band, The Angry Inch, are traveling back to the wicked little town of St. Paul, MN, due to popular demand! After a successful three-year encore performance in Duluth, MN, Hedwig delighted audiences in St. Paul this November, and now they want more! Following the beautifully tragic story of East German-born Hansel Schmidt, this powerful rock musical will speak to those who understand what it’s like to desperately be searching for your other half.

Winner of the 2014 Best Show of the Northland and Best Actor and Actress of the Northland by The Reader Magazine, this sold-out show packed the house at The Underground Theatre, located on the shore of Lake Superior. Zenith City Horror is excited to bring this debut production back to The Cabaret at Camp Bar and share some of Duluth’s best talent with more of the metro.
