From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly.

With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

BOOK, MUSIC, AND LYRICS BY MIKE CRAVER AND MARK HARDWICK

Set in the 1920s when radio ruled the airwaves and small stations thrived, Radio Gals is a charming musical about Hazel Hunt from Cedar Ridge, Arkansas, who broadcasts from her front parlor with her “all-girl” orchestra, “The Hazelnuts”, as radio WGAL. What comes over the local airwaves is an array of hilarious toe-tapping songs. However, Hazel’s broadcasts are not always so local due to her habit of impinging on other frequencies, like NBC’s, attracting the attention of a federal radio inspector who’s intent on shutting down WGAL. It turns out though, he has a fine tenor voice, plays a mean accordion and quickly becomes enchanted by the “Hazelnuts”

From the creators of Pump Boys and Dinettes.

Only this time, you’re going to find it dead funny and we’re going to be scared scriptless. That’s right, we’re tackling scenes from the most frightening movie and play scripts we can find. ScripTease performs October 18, 19 & 20 at Fireside Social House in Downtown Hastings.

Featuring the company of (lumin)theater lab:  Aaron Henry, Leah Christine, Rob Andersen, Kelli Tatum, Tom Sorenson, Michelle Del, Steve Soler, Caitlin Weber, Libby Wasylik & Kelly Nokk.

By Yasmina Reza

In this hilarious dark comedy, a playground altercation between eleven-year old boys brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses—and the rum flows—tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage dives into the deep end of parenthood, exploring the tense and volatile world we live in with cutting wit and poignant observations on the fragile nature of civility.

What could cause a creature as fearsome as a giant to remove his own heart from his body? What becomes of him without his Heart? And what becomes of his Heart without him?

These questions inspire Impossible Salt’s beautiful and haunting exploration of this ancient tale, known as “The Troll With No Heart in His Body” in Norway, “Koschei the Immortal” in Russia, “Punchkin the Magician” in India, and by still other names in Scotland, Hungary, and elsewhere. 
Even (or perhaps especially) in the United States in 2018, the specter of a monster made invulnerable by his own unthinkable actions continues to captivate us, and demands our attention.

Revived for the Halloween season, HEARTLESS is Impossible Salt’s deepest dive yet into the fear, desperation, and violence that dwell—where else?—in the human heart.

Join us after every performance of HEARTLESS for refreshments, music, and conversation.

Contains nudity, stylized violence, and disturbing themes. Use discretion.

THE VISIT, by Swiss playwright Friedrich Durrenmatt, is the most well-known play by one of the most important playwrights since the Second World War. Set in a small town that is in a deep economic depression, the townspeople await the visit of Claire Zachanassian, who was driven out of town as a young girl years ago because she was pregnant. Now the wealthiest person in the world who has just married her 8th husband, she returns to a town that desperately hopes her millions will save them. She, however, has a different agenda, returning with the mission to buy justice: she will offer the town her fortune in exchange for the life of the man who not only spurned her but rigged the public trial against her.

“In the fractious culture we find ourselves in today, the line between justice and revenge can get more and more thin. THE VISIT provides a chance to consider the complexities of that distinction, and does so in a very compelling and entertaining manner in this dark comedy,” says Artistic Director Wendy Knox.

ABOUT THE VENUE for THE VISIT: The Minnesota Transportation Museum is housed in the Jackson Street Roundhouse in St. Paul, a fully functional railroad roundhouse, one of the last of its kind in the country. During winter months, the Roundhouse is a functioning work area for Museum rolling stock, often with the volunteer workforce welding, grinding and sending sparks flying. Visitors taking the escorted shop tours are often amazed at the work being performed, commenting to docents and staff that they have “…never seen anything like it.” The building was erected by the Great Northern Railway in 1907, replacing another older roundhouse. The site has been used for rail transportation since the first railroad came to Minnesota in the 1860s. The Roundhouse and surrounding grounds are a near complete display of American Industrial history from the 19th century through the mid-20th century. The roundhouse is also home to the famous Northern Pacific Railway steam engine No. 2156, best known to many Twin Cities children from the 1960s and 1970s as Casey Jones‘ steam engine, from the popular children’s program.
